Windows 7: Best browser for Windows 7 64-bit

Firefox, I would gladly give up a little speed for the abundance of features that I have in Firefox, you people seem to think that Chrome will always be the speed is now, that's not the case, after time in development when it develops more features it'll get to the same pace as Firefox. Also Google Chrome 'themes' look **** imo. :P

edit; lol just saw that Chrome STILL doesn't have a decent adblock.

sorry chrome is fine if you want a browser with almost no features.
I made Chrome my default browser so when I'm reading my e-mail and I have to click on a link, it comes up fast. A few days ago I compared Chromes cold load time to Opera 10 and found that they both load cold in about 8 seconds on my XPsp3 system. Chrome is too sparce for me to enjoy, so I made Opera my default now and like it better. For my every day browsing I like FF the best (once it loads after 17 seconds). Looking forward to Win 7 in a few months.

I will have to get a new computer to get WIN 7, so I can't just update. I realize this is a WIN 7 forum, so I'm trying to pick your brains while I wait to get my new box.

Well, it has support for user-scripts, and will have an even bigger repository of them soon.

I think I'll try Fx Minefield the following days. Heard it's faster than Chrome. If it is, I'll go back to the furry fox
i figured i would test minefield tomorrow. all ready downloaded it.
The caveat of 64-bit FF is the same for 64-bit IE. Flash will eventually have a plug-in for it, but currently does not. So you will access certain pages when you do not have functionality.

The real question is what are the major benefits of a 64-bit browser? Don't get me wrong - I love 64-bit apps. But do they resolve pages faster, have greater stability, etc?

That was good. My lack of knowledge and nerve prevents me from even thinking about trying that. LOL I'll wait and do it on a new box.

that's kind of slow isn't it...I've got similar amount in FF but comes up instantly...looking at your Win7 Eternity? is that a hacked OS?
