Google Chrome

I like Google Chrome. It's very fast, faster than FF3. Many innovative, convenient features.

However, it will not yet become my default browser because it does not support single-sign-on, i.e. it does not support using your operating system authentication credentials for logging on to websites, typicall corporate intranet websites. Having to re-type my password each time I access a corporate intranet website is not acceptable.

Just one example for a great Chrome feature: open a web page, and press Ctrl+F and type a search keyword. The window scrollbar on the right will now highligh the areas in the whole document where the search term can be found.
