Google Chrome can't handle Outlook Web Access

Just a short note on Google Chrome. I downloaded it today to try it out. I had not idea how hard that would be. The download was easy but it doesn't seem to work with a lot of webpages. Most importantly for me if you try to visit Outlook Web Access the Exchange 2007 CAS server will force you into downlevel "OWA Light". Any browser I use absolutely must support the full functionality of OWA. Maybe I shouldn't have had such high expectations from a beta product but I expected more from Google given all the hype.

My opinion is Chrome will have a somewhat limited use scenario once the novelty wears off. There's a lot of potential with google app integration, but the web is full of unrealized potential (see Google, youTube, monetization).
