Well, it isn't the final version yet so things may change. I personally haven't been able to get into chrome. I have tried it a few times and continue to be turned off by it. I downloaded Opera for a couple days and enjoyed it more than Chrome... am I missing something?

I use Chrome purely to surf, if I'm going to be doing any FLV captures, streaming or other browser tool related activities I use FireFox.

All I ever do is surf as well, like forums, my websites, email, etc... I guess I figure that just using one browser for everything is best and firefox can do that the best overall.

The sheer speed of Chrome blew me away, and I have been an avid FF user for years. As soon as Siber ports Roboform to it, I will switch permanently.

To make Firefox 3.5 even faster as far as internet speed is concerned, install this add-on :

Fasterfox Lite
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/9148

By default, it is set to Turbo Charged, and it makes my browsing a lot faster. It is called Lite because it includes performance and network tweaks for Firefox but without the Prefetching.

There is also a Fasterfox add-on which does the same performance and network tweaks but also includes webpage prefetching.

I dont need prefetching so i use the lite version.

Hope this helps.

Just a note of caution, while I also use the add-on its experimental right now.
