back to article Google hands number 7 shirt to Chrome browser

Google spun out the first version 7 stable beta of its Chrome browser yesterday. Mountain View updated Chrome to 7.0.517.24 for Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome Frame.

Version 7 already?

Are they trying to catch up with Emacs or something?

Google's irresponsible use of numbers will leave us all short-handed before long. It's like IPv4 all over again.

Had it with Chrome

I've had it with Chrome. It keeps pegging out and saying the sites I'm trying to access have ceased to co-operate despite FFox and Sfari finding them fine.

I have done my tolerant share of nursing lameware. From now on stuff better work out of the box or it's 'istory, mate.
