I have been a long time firefox user. It has its problems, such as hogging memories, heat cpu hotter, etc. But it has so many good plug ins that you can install. Google come out with its version called Chrome. It looks very promising, but I have not been very keen to switching to it. Anyway, what is your take on that?

right now i am using firefox and was just updated to the newest version so far this version sucks every time i go to a certain website i keep getting crashes, i dont want to leave firefox but this is really getting on my last nerves!!!!!!! I have not heard anything bad about chrome so I may give that a try if firefox keeps acting up.

the good thing is that firefox doesn't hog as much memory as it use to. But, we can appreciate that the open source nature of the software, and thus it can be modified to your specification.

as far as i see it.i see a much faster goole chrome than firefox but firefox has an upgrade that also is as much fast as the chrome.as of now i like using goole chrome because it is new to me and all its features so i think goole chrome is better than firefox.but the best browser i have evr used is opera its has fastr switching from tab to tab and when you go back one page it a quick return to the last page you have been its a good browser for me who loves browsing the net.i think its the fastest browser i have ever used faster than IE,firefox,chrome and safari.

Chrome is slightly faster than firefox I think, especially when our firefox installed with many plug ins. To be honest, too many plug ins installed in our firefox will slow down its speed for sure. And another time, all plug ins ask us to install updates too. I have to uninstall some of them though.

Iv had good experiences with Firefox and chrome but to me chrome is better mostly cause it's quicker than Firefox and now has extensions which are useful.

Chrome was built for performance and quickly launching. To do this it has to be minimalistic which it is and lack features like plugins. I still use it though as well as Firefox because sometimes I just want to get online quick, check something then go.
