Is it me

Or do none of those features warrant another version jump? They'll be on Chrome 22 by the time it's all feature-complete and ready.

Meh..

Opera 10.50 is far better, can kills even Chrome in benchmarks (Sunspider, Googles own javascript benchmarks and Futuremark Peacekeeper).

The latest snapshot is pretty darn decent..

Oh why didst thou forsake me, Opera?

I was a long term Opera advocate, even paying for some version (3? 4?) back in the day. But they pissed me off when, IMHO, their product took a few backwards steps and committed the cardinal sin of becoming ever so slightly unstable a few versions ago that I doubt I'll ever bother trying it again.

I like Chrome's ever increasing version numbers though, I reckon their intention must be to get to a googol. This will signify the achievement of the technological singularity...and nothing will ever be the same again.

Works fine on Linux (Ubuntu) as well -

the Chrome browser seems to be going from strength to strength. Let us hope Google does as good a job with the Chrome OS !...
