Gecko vs Chrome

Google’s new browser Chrome , a next gen browser incorporating features such as these, is still far away from being  a Firefox killer as  is being touted by everyone else

Neverthless I do have a small problem. check this screenshot of Chrome ,where the pages I was trying to load did manage to load in Firefox pretty fast , but Chrome choked on load.


Additionally the all aspx pages are broken are down. Think we can safely blame Microsoft for this. ;-).

Btw here is a link to  Google Chromes secret    about:<….> pages.
