Sucked it up and downloaded Google Chrome.

I have to admit, and I've said it before, I don't like change. But when Firefox froze on me a short time ago, that was the last straw. It had crashed on me earlier when I installed an add on for a survey. So far, I don't like Chrome, but I'm sure that will change soon enough. It is much faster for loading, not sure about all sites, but this one loaded pretty much instantly, which is nice for once. I got everything from Firefox imported over, that I like, and all my passwords came with me. That was one thing that concerned me about making the switch, that I'd have to manually input all of my passwords. It's going to be interesting using Chrome from now on, but I wont be using it exclusively. I do need Firefox for some things. Until I can figure out toolbars, I need Firefox still. I hope I get it figured out soon.

No! Traitor! How could you abandon Firefox, beacon of hope and savior for all who once were chained to Internet Explorer?! Just kidding! :P Like you, I'm not really a fan of change. I like the familiar. Even something as simple as updates in Gmail can get on my nerves. However I have dabbled with Chrome. It does indeed load faster. For awhile I completely converted from Firefox to Chrome. However then I hear rumors of privacy flaws. I have paranoia about my privacy so I ran back to Firefox. The latest release is as fast as Chrome and works just fine (in my case). In the end it comes down to what is best for you. Product loyalty is rather silly if there is a alternative that would need your needs better. :)

I'm not loyal to either browser, I'll be switching back and forth between them from time to time since Chrome doesn't support everything I use.

I've had good luck using Chrome however I don't use their toolbars. One video site I work on occasionally will only work using Chrome which is why I initially downloaded it. Hope in time you are happy with Chrome and figure it all out.

I just noticed that it doesn't matter what browser I'm using. If my wifi internet speed is poor, it's slow no matter what. I don't care for that at all.

I am and always will be a fan of Chrome. I tried Firefox, and still do use it from time to time. I don't know, but Chrome seems more suitable for me. I do experience some problem with Shockwave and so on from time to time, especially when I'm playing games on FB, other than that, it's perfect for me. I don't use any toolbars. The toolbars are probably slowing your Firefox. I initially used Firefox for the C4C add-on. Now that Chrome has come up with Reloader, which, in my opinion is better than C4C now, I seldom use Firefox anymore.
