I’m wondering how many of you have downloaded and tried using Google Chrome to write, edit and maintain your WordPress blog.
This is my first attempt to do so. I’m finding it to be an interesting experience to say the least. It keeps wanting to put extra spaces between my paragraph breaks especially if I switch between HTML and Visual.
When I opened the editor to write a new post, I entered the title then down to the body of the post. I wrote a word and when I backspaced over the word and one more backspace it took me to the Dashboard, not the top line of the editor. I tried it several times and it repeated this action each time. “Don’t do it”
I’ve also noticed this browser seems to learn. One time it will not know what to do, but the next time it will do it even to the point of saying some URL’s are not available, but later it will open them.
I’ve also noticed that making options changes might require you to close the browser completely and re open to see the changes take effect.
The first time I tried to write a post in Chrome I clicked on the link button and it wouldn’t allow the pop up window to appear so I could enter the link. However, later it worked fine.
It is stripped down, No bells, no whistles, and even the Google things you might expect incorporated are not available like the Google Toolbar or Google Gears. I’ve done a couple of saves and it seems a little faster than FF with Google Gears or Flock without Gears.
Preview a post can be a wild trip at times. I’ll let you see what it does for yourself. Maybe nothing, maybe . . .
I know I was going to watch Dirty Harry and call it a night, but I had 20 minutes to wait so thought I’d take Chrome for another quick spin around the blog.
Has anyone put this browser through the WordPress meatgrinder? Or was that were weekend GEEK project?
