I guess most netbooks have hard drives now, but IMHO for your classic SSD based netbook Chrome isn't entirely ideal since there is no way to turn off disk caching


I have a classic SSD based netbook (asus eee 900) running Lucid, and Chrome is much, much faster than Firefox there.

You misunderstood: he was taking about the lifetime of a SSD not the speed of Chrome with a SSD:
a MLC SSD has a not-so-great maximum number of write before it fails so you can improve the lifetime of a SSD if you turn off disk caching..
