Version numbering aside, Chrome is a great browser. I love the apps/extensions they have for them. Angry Birds for the kids, Adblock Plus and so much more for myself. Keep up the good work Google.

Why does everyone make such a big deal about numbering? It doesn't really matter what version they call their browser. It really makes much more sense for them to do their numbering this way. None of the new releases in the past year or two have had any MAJOR changes. All of their changes have been gradual and in steps. This is much better for the consumer as they don't have to spend a ton of time reacquainting themselves with the browser and its features. They only have to spend a minute or two each 6 weeks (if even that).

If they were to call it Chrome version 1.6 then once they get to "1.9" people would be a big change when "2.0" comes out. This probably won't happen. It didn't happen with the change from 9 to 10. Updating the version number with each release really is the most LOGICAL way to do things.

I've been using the Chrome 16-Beta for several weeks now and although it has some major stability issues, I couldn't do without the profiles. I work from home and was tired of having to launch an incognito window for all of my work related accounts...the Profiles are wonderful.

There are a number of inaccuracies in this article.

First of all, each profile get its own browser window -- they are not shared inside the same window.

Secondly, you do *not* need to sync in order to use multiple profiles. Sync is optional, and any given profile can be synced or not synced.

Third, you *can* run two profiles at the same time. Each one gets its own window, and both windows can be open at the same time.

Please try to do some research next time before blogging.
