Yes, had the chrome beta, before that was trying out the chromium daily 
build from ppa, chrome is much better than the daily-build. Don't have 
jumpy flash though on both (i'm on 64 bit). Not exactly sure if html5 
would dispense with the need for flash entirely, but opera and chrome 
has better support for html5 than firefox, currently. Interestingly, 
konqueror has very good html5 compliance.

Mouse gesture support in chrome is not as good because the right click 
context menu is effected upon 'click' and not upon release.
