sorry chrome is fine if you want a browser with almost no features.
What features do you need that chrome doesnt have? In day to day life chrome should be enough.
Exactly my point. I want a browser, not plugins.

The only time i like being without the Fifefox add-ons that i have installed is when i am browsing anonymously. If anyone is interest these are the FF add-ons I use.

Adblock Plus, Colorful Tabs, Cooliris, Faviconize Tab, Flagfox, Forecastfox, BBCode, IE Tab, Nightly Tester Tools, Rdown, Tab Mix Plus, Youtube Cenema, BBcodeXtra, NASA Night Launch, Youtube Downloader, Fission

Plus a few tweaks to the about:config

I think in about a year Chrome and Opera will really be able to give FF a real run for the money. As for IE8 Microsoft should finally bury the dead beast once and for all.

'M using the Chrome 3.something (latest stable version) for daily browsing - it has surperior screen estate and sleekness, and properly working zoom, which is all that matters to me. Also, all videos and games play perfectly on that. And downloads are handled neatly.

For Microsoft sites and sites where the Chrome has some sort of error (happens rarely, but happens), I just use the built-in IE8. Ever since the Firefox 2.0, I've begun not liking it at all, in my mind it is just as cluttered as IE8.

For shady sites and potentially harmful occasions (like if I have to check a website in .ru domains), I do have FireFox 3.5 with NoScript and Adblock. But I use it very rarely.

Mozzilla Browser ?

Mozzila is good but when you start adding plugins and other stuff it really slows down and tends to crash alot more for me so I use Chrome and it kicks butt super fast and light weight. There correct about Chrome.

I like Opera the most honestly, because its mouse gestures. I think Firefox has, but then you have to add stuff. -_- I had to much trouble with Firefox that i gave up. (unless someone can change my mind). I would jump over to Chrome if it had mouse gestures features, also again I havent seen if any. It makes my life way better then having to move my left hand to press backspace or move my mouse cursor to the [<-] Box.

IE8- is used by force for school/and email and to add feeds for Windows Live Hotmail.

I'm currently running Firefox 3.5.3, but I'm not happy with its performance in 64-bit Windows. I get a lot of crashes while watching videos, and poor performance (some full screening some videos will result in lag).

Does anyone know if Chrome run better in 7?
Chrome is a Joke!
