Chrome has started to get worse in my opinion, it used to be a lot more stable. A fresh install of it seems to have helped a bit but it's still not as good as it used to be. The developer tools are really good though.
I started using IE8 more and more. Chrome won't let me download some of the videos off YouTube with RealPlayer. I am coming to a conclusion that Google is silently manipulating the way people can use the web. Lesson: each browser has its advantages.
