Read this on the net:

“Make sure you go to www.google.com/chrome and install the latest browser”

Is this a good or a bad idea? To be perfectly frank I still am not sure of what the heck a browser is. I think mine is Internet Explorer, so if I change to Google Chrome do I lose everything I already have?

Works on a Mac running OS 10.6.8 in Firefox, “frosting” the browser window.

(And other Win 7 users report it works. I suspect it’s your browser or a setting in your browser that’s keeping you from the fun, rather than the machine or OS.)

Did not work on my Safari browser on my Mac, but it worked with Firefox. I installed Firefox as a backup browser because Safari does not always work when I travel and login to the net through the hotel's internet connection. So in these situations, having a second browser is useful.

You should be fine with Chrome. I have Chrome on my Windows machine and it is good. You won't lose anything. You can import all your bookmarks into Chrome or choose not to do so. It will not delete anything from IE. If you still want to continue using IE after installing Chrome, do not choose Chrome as the default browser when you install it. Choosing it as the default will open up Chrome when you click on a link.

Did not work on my Commodore 64, running Windows 3.1, so maybe I need to upgrade a little.
