In browsers supporting the WebP image format, google search previews, thumbnails and picasa use them in priority, essentially providing better quality for smaller filesizes.
You might get even more radical speedups if you optimize your DNS with faster, more secure ones (especially if you use them properly, faster first). See DNSBench for a benchmark (try a full check for your closest DNS resolvers).

The spell checker is often annoying though making you attempt a spelling of a word then it suggest 5 things totally stupid.
The word "Movie" is still in there as wrong.
I never got on with firefox after chrome.

The most popular Firefox plugin has been ported to Chrome. I tried Chrome once on my old computer, but there was some weird error, so I sort of gave up on it. I've been using Firefox for so long that I've haven't even seriously considered switching browsers.
Chrome has a noticeable speed increase when I switch to it from FireFox. Chrome doesn't allow me to use the plug-ins that I use for FireFox, so I've stuck with FireFox.
No doubt Chrome is great and speedy, but I'm simply a Firefox person.

AFAIK, Chrome does not work on Windows 2000, only Windows XP SP2 and above.
