Bargepole! Apart from the fact it won't run on 2k (yay!), it can read any passwords you've saved in firefox and the google EULA is as bent as LK.

Also with Google making most of their revenue from advertising, don't expect the ad and pop-up blockers to be a high priority for them.

I just downloaded it, seems alright so far; the streamlined design is handy for my smallish monitor and it's pleasantly speedy.
One problem though... I'm seeing ads again! :(
