I am going to check out Juan's recommendation - incredible start page.
I will add that I love using the google search bar as a unit converter and calculator.
(this is, i think, the millionth time i've had to retype a post, as i have issue with accidentally hitting the "reply to orginial post" button after typing my response. then, the page reloads, and i lose my response. love doing things over and over due to my own ridiculous inability to pay attention.)
anyway, i have yet to download google chrome, mostly due to a lack of being informed about what google chrome can do for me. i appreciate you guys sharing all of this helpful information and advice. i have read what you've all said and watched the youtube video/review, and i do think that a quick translater, a calculator and short url and qr creator could all come in handy, as well as another tool for screenshot taking and bookmarking. i'll see if i actually get around to downloading it, myself, but thanks for the encouragement and information.
(now, this time, i'm going to click, "add reply.")
