Is everything working? I know it is still an alpha stage?

Is it faster?

I got Chrome version working on Slackware64 13.0. It seems much faster than Firefox and generally renders better too (Zoom is much better). Acid score was 94/100, but on windoze it's 100/100 so they still have some work to do. One question I have is how can I set the fonts? I didn't see it in the options, so maybe there is a hackable file somewhere?

Bug Installing Google Chrome
I just installed the Chrome on my Slackware 13.0 64bit, i works nice, no problem.

I found some forums of debian about how to install Flash Player to chrome, i did not work for me, I did something like this:

root@xxx:~# mkdir /opt/google/chrome/plugins

root@xxx:~# ln -s /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ /opt/google/chrome/plugins

Then Started chrome with the following param /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome %U -enable-extensions -enable-plugins --enable-internal-flash

But nothing, It supposed to work only with the --enable-internal-flash but I add some more param because the frustration.

Anyway, that's not the worst, now Firefox don-t work, it doesn't even start, and Konqueror don't start the Flash player, In opera neither.

Ok, After installation of Chrome I did't not try to use Firefox nor Opera nor Konkeror, I just tried after failure installing Flash Player in Chrome, so I guess the problem was installing the chrome dependencies in some way alter my initial configuration.

Any Help will be appreciated.

Thanks Anyway
