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.
you really should upodate your os. this is a win 7 forum after all. i have about 30 firefox addons and when i launch it in win 7 it takes 6 to 8 seconds and my home page is up.
EDIT:

i lied. after doing a few about:config tweaks even with 6 utorrent downloads going it only takes me less than 1.5 seconds to reach my home page.

I wish I knew your secret. Does your FF load so fast because you're using Win7, or you have much more total RAM than 1GB? I have tweeked FF the best I know how but it's still slow on a cold start. You are talking about cold starts right? My subsequent starts during the same boot up are about 3 seconds.

One thing I love about Chrome. I don't need to tweak it to make it fast.

I'll drink to that. Now when Chrome adds on some of FF's additions it will be nice.

FF addons, doubt that will happen.

Though in the latest Developer builds (not sure about the beta) there is extensions available.

Yeah, you can change skins for one. It needed that feature.

Yep. They are not easy to make though. Every time someone makes a application to build a theme, it breaks with the next release (incompatible theme file).

I plan to switch back to Chrome after seeing my friends next theme for firefox on the 31st.

WOW! Lots of opinions here.

Fire fox, Opera, Chrome...Whats the best!

Really none of them. They all have their flws just like the mack daddy of them all

Internet Explorer

I find that adding more browsers just mucks things up. I have been a die hard Microsoft fan for 20 years.

I check up on these companies regularly but nothing really comes close to IE.

If you like your browser then that browser is best for "you".

IE is best for me.

i have three gigs installed. and yes i am talking about a cold start. pm me tomorrow and i will get you a list of my plugins along with how i configure them, and my about:config settings.


guys once addons are available for chrome remember they will slow it down. remember i have 18 addons, 18 extentions, and one theme with ff 3.5.4 and still load my home page from a cold start in less than 2 seconds.
