Hah, so many people addicted to add-ons. Personally, I don't use them, so Chrome is better for me, not to mention that Opera comes with a lot of features right out of the box, and Safari 4 is the eye-candy winner right now.

I really like Chrome alot. Chrome 1 doesn't work on W7, so I installed Chrome 2 which I like alot better than 1. They seriously improved the way bookmarks are managed.

The Favorites folder is an advantage that IE has over all of these other browsers that have yet to learn how to use bookmarks stored in Windows folders for easy management. The problem with IE is the yellow bar that is impossibly to get rid of. Before it was also the fact that it didn't have tabbed browsing. But I have always used IE, and still used IE. I've tried other browsers including Chrome, and I always encounter the same problem all the time. A page doesn't load so I have to pull up IE anyway. I never have this problem with IE. With IE, I never have to pull up another browser to get a page to load. I was hoping Chrome would be different, but it wasn't. So while I really do like Chrome of the other browsers, I still use IE because it never gives me problems.

I have to disagree with you there mate. I have been using chrome 2 as my only browser for about five/six months and it has never slowed down on me. I don't use add ons and generally find ff to bulky(if you know what i mean). IE doesn't even enter the equation and I have never tried safari because apple products are on my bloatware list.

Chrome 2 ftw.................

I use Opera for playing tribalwars (love being able to press 2 to switch tabs), but otherwise use Chrome or Safari for daily use. Safari is the fastest browser from my own testing, followed by Chrome. The two are incredibly close though so the difference is more or less negligible and between the two I mostly see people using one over the other due to preferring one's UI over the other.

Besides which, I really cannot go without my FF add-ons.
