I really want to switch to Chrome but live bookmarks are such a big deal for me. I don't know why they don't add them to Chrome.

I just use Google Reader. Much easier and I have the reeder for Ipad app so I can see the latest regardless of what computer or tablet I am on.

It is not 64-bit version. It works by mare fact that 64-bit operating systems are made compatible with 32-bit software (otherwise they would never move to mainstream). Internet Explorer in Windows 7 and Windows Vista is still the only viable 64-bit browser. If you dig deep you may be able to find 64-bit Firefox build for Windows but it is nowhere near stable for anyone to use. Not to mention existing 32-bit plug-ins do not work with it.

Now, more appropriate question is why would you need 64-bit browser? What can it do today that 32-bit browser can't? One answer is that it may offer better security since hackers are not targeting it specifically yet (that's if you encounter exploit that cares about browser bitness).

Work with more than 4GB of virtual memory. That may be an advantage some day but it's not needed yet.

Canadian spelling disctionary

I just noticed that Chrome has finally added a Canadian spelling dictionary. I'm on version 14.0.835.126 beta. I know there are quite a few Chrome users here, so I thought I'd point it out.

Dr.Dave,

Thanks for the heads-up on the correct dictionary. I've been using the Canadian dictionary for Firefox for a couple of years, but I need to use Chrome just for a couple of forums... previously I'd only found one add-on that combined British, Canadian and American (mis)spelling... VERY confusing! :eek:

Now... if we could only get Hugh (and several other members) to start using Canadian spelling!!! ;) :D
