This program is crap. It keeps telling me that Google Chrome isn’t installed even after I installed it, it keeps saying Google Chrome isn’t installed. IMO, I think Google Devs need to go back to school.

Google chrome today is the best thing in the browsing arena. Internet explorer is gradually fading from the people’s mind, (at least mine), the smoothness of google chrome is just commendable. It is clear that IE just can’t stand against chrome.
