Nice information.Will try it
Man this stuff is geting heated up
Let me try it.
Chrome is my browser. I don’t know about all the techy stuff; however, I do enjoy the features and find that it is…I was going to say very easy to use, but then I miss my AOL browser – THAT was easy.
My comment is – Chrome is 100% better (in my opinion) than IE.
