I love that the "New Tab" speed is fast <== something I have been complaining for the longest time.
However, Google Chrome's [Tab Bar] and [Address Bar] placement is still better in my opinion.
IE9's style makes the Address Bar shrink so much that you can't read the whole URL, which I hate.
Plus, it is easier to click on a tab in Google Chrome (simply just move to the top of the screen. No need to aim.)
