Too many resources. It is not the right solution for your laptop if you use the battery. These make so much noise, but they have only so much money and the search engine.

No, they are pretty lame. I have been trying Chromium and having better luck with it. It is 64bit and what google is built with, but without the spyware from what I have read. It seems to work with all my plugins and is ok so far.

Yes, that's what I often do.
But it's a chore having to do this manually.

@Google
Some folks might like these "most visited websites" badges, so how about just having an option in the preferences to turn them on/off.

I really can't believe that supposed tech-savvy folks who deny all the built-in spyware that any Google app contains still insist that Chrome is the best browser around. Oh yes, it has all those attractive bells and whistles that techsters all love but underneath all the sugar coating lies a cruel and evil technology that captures god (and Gummibear Page) knows what from unsuspecting users, then sells all that data to clients who then target you. This whole business of Google is nothing more than the NSA on steroids.

But it seems that nobody gives a crap about all that because, well, it's free and has all those great goodies.

Maybe no one gives a crap because it is no big deal. I use Chrome and Gmail and won't use another browser or mail service until someone else makes something better. What data of mine is Google selling? I have never received a mail from a website where I personally had not left my mail. Google offers brilliant services other than the two that I use and I think that they are all free. So if they try to make a bit of money by proposing certain sites based on my surfing habits it does not really bother me. As far as I know but I may be wrong this is the only thing that Google does which seems to bother some people. If I'm wrong then I would be interested to know what else they are actually doing with my data.

I agree with Prince Isaac.
I'm half-Jewish, and I know a bit about that of which he speaks. Today, I received an e-mail from Dropbox, which told me how they are tying to keep my information, on their servers, safe from the NSA and other alphabet-agencies. I applaud their concern. I am 66 and a proud citizen of a place called the USA. How anyone can NOT be concerned about privacy and other current issues is a wonder to me. Our fathers and grandfathers fought and died for this country. It's our job now to make sure that it doesn't slip into what happened in another country just before I was born.
And I don't like name-calling, here or anywhere . . . but please let's think twice before giving up all of our freedoms in the name of security. We were once the beacon of freedom, and we can be again. All it takes is courage and the commitment to do the right thing . . . to "not be evil", I believe the CEO of Google once remarked.

@Jazzica. Hi Jazzica, I agree totally with you on the right to privacy. No matter where you live nobody wants to be spied on. I do not agree on comparing the NSA to a company that has a computer in some warehouse that searches for keywords in it's free mail service or it's free search engine to send me ads. As I said above , if Google is doing more than this with my data, I would like to know. Have a great Sunday.

I used to be a big fan of Chrome. Now I just hate it. Why? It will not run Youtube 95% of the time. And after way too many hours searching through google, ironic, for an answer I am about to start on a very aggressive posting, blogging, and whatever else I can think of campaign to bash Google for their complete unresponsiveness to my pleas for help. They are probably too busy buying someone else's creation to pay attention or care.

If you have found an answer I would appreciate hearing it!

Upgrade my OS? That is a silly answer. Do you work for Apple? Because that is their answer for everything; "spend more money and invest more time" and all will be well. Am I the only guy left that is sensitive to the ever shortening life span of products offered by Apple and Google?

My current OS and Chrome version were working fine 6 months ago and something was changed without my authorization or knowledge. That pisses me off. What about the rest of you?

I know it is free and perhaps your time is worth close to free. Mine is not. You have completely missed my point. I think you should get off this thread. Your attitude is passive-aggressive insulting whereas I will be openly aggressive. Your too stupid to understand my point.

I will offer a bit of insight that will most likely go right over your pointy little head. I make my living trading and I do pretty well. An OS system upgrade has an unknown trickle down effect on the rest of my software that could cost me a lot of money.

I can afford to kiss off Chrome if there is not a simple reset fix to be implemented. I do not want to risk the lost trading opportunities.

Now please drop off the thread. You have nothing useful to contribute.

Umaromc is just a another simpleminded technology clotheshorse. Umaromc thinks that if there is something new that everything before is a throwaway. That is a consumer moron mentality. I am surprised the fool has not attacked everyone that operates hardware that did not arrive last week. Umaromc resorts to insults when nothing intelligent is present in the walnut sized brain. Apple and Google, along with the cellphone and flatscreen industry love Umaromc; a fool with an open wallet. Umaromc is the consumer sitting in the corner of Steve Jobs' smiling smirk. Instead of donating to causes Umaromc worships landfills.

The newest Mac OS is still buggy and for someone such as I, that makes a living trading, that can be very expensive if not catastrophic. I never update to a new OS until it has at least six months of use and fixes; and I usually skip a generation. Maverick will be my new OS in probably another 3 or 4 months. Those policies have spared me all of the software disasters I have read about and successfully paid for a house and two college degrees. Not bad for an individual that Umaromc "thinks" is stupid!

Now since no one has offered anything useful about the Google-YouTube-Mac OS conundrum I am going to uncheck the notification box so that Umaromc can spout all the stupidity left in the walnut to an electronic room where no one is listening.

MestengoH9698 has material things. MestengoH9698 doesn't update his OS for years to come... to be safe. MestengoH9698 apparently just heard of MacUpdate. MestengoH9698 thinks Umaromc isn't aware of MestengoH9698's overwhelming debt and that, like thousands of other fools, he doesn't really OWN what he is in possession of, unless we're referring to debt in the form of mortgages and loans. MestengoH9698 doesn't like to think about the fact that debt is less than zero.

MestengoH9698 is probably convinced I'm going to waste as much time filling three paragraphs with semi-carefully worded diatribe because MestengoH9698 thinks he's worth it. I'm honored MestengoH9698 was able to squeeze three paragraphs out of his peanut in under a day for me, but I can't reciprocate because my time is more valuable than that. It was almost fun writing in similar manner as MestengoH9698's fine, final(?) retort, but I'll switch from stupid mode now.

The biggest issue with Chrome for me is its incessant data mining of the user. It took me days just to close off all the security holes this collection of code created on my Mac. I still keep that old version onboard, but I will not update/upgrade, because it just means going through all the effort to secure it each time from such unwarranted intrusion.

I would love to reap the benefits of sandboxed tabs, and all the bells and whistles, but it simply is not ready for prime time.
Every time I try a new rev of Chrome, it either terminates with a freeze or crashes. An unstable app is unacceptable to use unless there are no other alternative. Luckily there are plenty of stable alternatives from Firefox to Safari.
Chrome could be good if they worked on the last 10%–15% to make it stable but as it is, they keep adding features with no regard to overall stability. The only reason that could explain the substandard quality of this software is that Chrome on OS X is a second class citizen. Google are simply releasing a Mac version as lip service to the platform, because if they were serious it would be ad stable as the Windows version. Either that or this is some lone dev’s pet project, because this is no where near the level of professional software.

My machine has no problem under heavy loads, Web browsers are solid even with many tabs, & I do regular maintenance. So, I know the hardware and OS are solid. The fault here is all Google’s lackluster Mac support.
Bottom Line:
Avoid Chrome.

Chrome and Google Apps in general started to go very wrong in Mountain Lion but initially in small ways that you didn't notice unless you were trying to identify a issue. Now those small issues have made small hiccups longer and longer freezes. If you have been using Chrome for a while the uninstaller won't fully remove all of the bits from all the areas that Google installs pieces of itself in. My experience was that the huge issue isn't in the apps themselves, but in the updating software google packages with Chrome (or other Google apps) which will keep trying to "hammer away" to update when the updater is trying to use an out of date process request. "keystone" and now "ksfetch" were my two largest headaches, causing random freezing of the screen or full blown kernel panic. Wish they would get it together, but it seems the larger they have become the less organized & caring they are.

My Chrome doesn't work at all, either unless you are an Admin user. Here in Gov't, we are almost all Standard users because of some dummy in another agency, so they changed the rules on us all. OS-X 10.6.8. Maybe it'll fix itself when this I2-duo core box is swapped for a newer one, but I can't be sure.
