 +
 +===== Things I don't like =====

 +      * Weather
 +      * Foxmarks
 +      * Zotero
 +    * No linux edition now (maybe never?)
 +====== The Competition ======
 +  * IE
 +  * Firefox
 +    * Minefield (x64 version)
 +    * Prism (was Webrunner)
 +  * Opera
 +  * Safari (kissing cousins--they share Webkit)
 +  * sundry linux browsers
 +====== Some internals ======
 +[[http://​www.saulis.com/​29~google_chrome_about_pages|Saulis.com]]:​
 +
 +  * about:​version - obviously version information (also accessible by chrome-resource://​about/​)
 +  * about:​plugins - obviously installed plugins
 +  * about:​histograms - hey I love this one! don't quite know what this all means though
 +  * about:dns - obviously just some DNS stats
 +  * about:​cache,​ redirecting to view-cache: - list of cached documents, each viewable in HEX!
 +  * view-cache:​stats - stats for cached documents
 +  * about:stats - obviously just some stats
 +  * about:​network - that's an awesome tool!
 +  * about:​internets - oh, an Easter Egg of a kind? look at the page title - The Tubes are Clogged! ;))
 +  * chrome-resource:/​new-tab/​ - heh, a template for the empty tab page?
 +  * chrome-resource:/​favicon/​ - even favicons look like this in the Matrix ;)
 +  * chrome-resource:/​thumb/​http://​www.saulis.com/​ - this one generates the page thumbnails for the empty tab page
 +  * about:​memory - nice memory stats
 +  * :% - yes, just this little bit crashes the browser, so don't try it unless you want to loose the opened tabs
 +  * about:crash - will display the default crash page banner
 +
