I've been using it for a few months now and I'm happy enough with it.

Use both FF and Chrome, speed is the same and PDF's always fail on Google Chrome for some reason.

That said I still like Chrome and still use it.

Following advice from an IT friend recently I converted to Firefox.

It is more secure and just as simple to use. I wish I'd known about it much sooner. Seriously guys, try it. You can always return to Micro$oft if not happy.

Sorry Explorer - you're sacked!

Edit: (Ah, just realised I'm talking about something else and realise what David meant by FF :oops: )

My forum cred just took a dive..

Where's a 'delete' icon when you need one? :D

I've been using Chrome since it was released, I'm very impressed so far.

FF is not what it was and was beginning to feel bloated and lethargic. almost like a secure IE.

MS IE, well what can I say, oh yeah, it's sh*t.

The only problem with chrome, is that there are no ad-blockers. Why Google didn't include an ad-blocker I don't know :rolleyes:

You can install different browsers, setting one of them as default, can have the others at your fingertips... We are not normally limited to a single browser installation...

Annoyed by this message from non default browser ?
"Internet Explorer is not currently your default browser. Would you like to make it your default browser?"
Find the following question(s) and un-tick the accompanying box in the browser's preferences... Three examples :-
□"Always check to see if Firefox is the default browser on startup"
□"Check if Opera is default browser on startup"
□"Tell me if Internet Explorer is not the default web browser."

It could be something to do with Google making all it's money from advertising! :LOL:

Although you would think they could block everybody else's adverts... it might attract the attention of those who look out for unfair business practices though.

I don't think there's a final version of Chrome for Linux. I use Firefox. I'v tried Opera and it seems to perform worse.

Also, when I tested Windows 7, Firefox 3.5 way outperformed IE8 (on the same OS and hardware obviously).

Oh, a nitpick: The correct abbreviation (as advised by Mozilla themselves) for Firefox is Fx.
