LOL @ the Opera one, but the statement about Firefox is just plain dumb.

If you believe living life like Wiley Coyote is the way it's meant to be, well then go ahead and use Chrome, and don't come whining to me when you get run over by my bulldozer.

I might disagree with the FireFox one, but that's only because I disabled most of the add-ons with mine. Pretty funny, though.

That's what I don't get about the comment, you don't need to install them to run it, and if you've disabled all yours, that's because you installed what you didn't need.

Chrome has fun faster in some tests, but being here in the bandwidth poor U. S., I doubt that it makes a big difference.

I remember testing "@Home" cable network when they first came out. We were about 3 miles from the headend, and got a rock solid 10M down and up. You could easily see who was running their sites off T-1s, fractional T-1, or T-3s. There's still a lot of that going around in the States - due in part to density (a lot less than S. Korea) and in part to the provider's lack of foresight.

I'm paying through the nose for 6M down and 768K up (more like 5.13 down and 650K up after the overhead, etc.) and am happy for it.

Random factoid - AOL still has a load of dial-up (56K) users. Think they can see a difference?
