I tried Chrome and hated it. It may be a little faster but the look style and feel was just wrong for me. I went looking for something else because I don't like the way Firefox handles managing bookmarks.
Perhaps when I can customize the look to something I can stomach I will try it again.
I have since gone back to using Netscape 7 (Like Communicator with web and email), Netscape 9 and the latest SeaMonkey - and love them! I would use Netscape Communicator 4.8 but it won't install on win 7.
After all these years, for some things Netscape Still Rulez.
