My old Powerbook is knackered – six keys no longer working, and I suspect the culprit may be baby food – so I’ve dragged out my arthritic Acer Aspire, which “runs” Vista. It’s basically a desperately underpowered laptop that struggles to get out of bed, let alone actually do anything. So hurrah for Google Chrome, which runs beautifully on it.
Chrome isn’t perfect – it still isn’t extensible, and there’s an issue with Hotmail where you can read but not write emails – but it’s still a cracking wee browser. I’d definitely recommend it for everyday browsing on underpowered Windows kit.
