Chrome Fails

I had a great opportunity to install a round of upgrades on our public computers, and while I was at it thought I might as well put Chrome on them (I’ve been using it regularly and am quickly becoming a convert).  However, I hit a really annoying stumbling block.

Chrome installs in the following directory:

documents and settings/[user]/local settings/application data

This is a hidden folder, not to mention one that limited accounts (which we use for patron logins) do not have access to.  I’m sure there’s a way to alter the permissions, but I haven’t worked it out yet, and until there’s some more demand for Chrome I’m not convinced it’s worth the effort on my part.

On the other hand, the couple other staff members who have switched to it seem to love it.
