Browser wars again?

How many times does this topic come up on the internet.
I have a question to - why is it that everyone these days is in such a
hurry that they can't wait an extra couple of seconds for their page/ mail
etc etc to load. Really? If your gonna compare one browser to another I think
the idea would be to look at what security features each offers - now that
is something I would be willing to spend some time looking at.

To answer your question - I dont know

This isn't a personal shot at your question, this is just me over
the let's compare this to that in milliseconds and then say one is better thing.
If I was on the rocket they're gonna send to mars I might be worried
about a millisecond difference in computing power and or the
software I was navigating with.

Well, it is your own choice. I used firefox for a while but Firefox crashes a lot on my computer (on youtube...). So I use Chrome now and it's fast and if you look at the security about chrome it is very good :P

Gmail and Chrome are Google products, so it's a no brainer that it works really well.

In the real world and not benchmarks Chrome is only slightly faster to me. But speed isn't the ultimate measure of browser. It's like the Apple vs Droid argument. Apple has limited customization while droid has more. Currently Chrome has limited customizing while FF you can modify almost every aspect of it. Apple performance is slightly more consistent while depending on the phone droid has various performance measures. It's really down to personal preference at this point to me.

Personal preference is more important than the "benchmark" speed differences, which are minimal, and really only noticeable by looking at numbers, not real world use.

If you like the browser, use it. Browser wars are the most ridiculous thing.
It's like comparing a car that gets 25.4 miles per gallon to a car that gets 25.5 miles per gallon. If that little bit of difference in numbers is going to make the decision for you, then you've got problems. It's unnoticeable, and it only looks good on paper.
