I've been going back and forth myself between FF7 and Chrome14, IE is always last for me.

I just think that FF seems to give you more options on add-on and placement.



Internet Explorer, the old, fat, mad king of the online kingdom still reigns uncontested. But beneath him, a power struggle between Chrome and Firefox, the latter of which has clung to the number two spot. But that's about to change.

According to internet stats firm StatCounter, Chrome's grown in use by 50%—and is on track to take the silver medal by December. StatCounter is just one company among many that do the exact same thing, so these figures aren't ironclad. But the trend definitely is—IE languishes, and Firefox hasn't done much to excite us in a while. Chrome, on the other hand, at least has Google beating its drum; a luxury afforded by, you know, being owned by megarich Google. The <em style="margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; padding-top: 0px; padding-right: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; padding-left: 0px; border-top-width: 0px; border-right-width: 0px; border-bottom-width: 0px; border-left-width: 0px; border-style: initial; border-color: initial; outline-width: 0px; outline-style: initial; outline-color: initial; font-style: italic; font-size: 15px; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline; ">long term trend here—emphasis on long—is the gradual decline of IE. Eventually, I'd expect Firefox and Chrome to take the number one and two spots. It's just a matter of when, and who'll be the new king. [ComputerWorld]

I was a faithful FF user, but after the last few itterations, I've left, and have now been dabbling with Opera on a few recommendations.

Just go look at benchmark comparisons. Chrome is the superior browser.

+1 for Chrome here.

I've switched to Chrome as well.

After that last round of ff7, I went to chrome. I also LOVE chrome to phone (for my droid).

At the moment I have 7 tabs open on Safari, 6 open on Opera, 5 open on Chrome with 4 open and slowly dropping on Firefox.

Set me know when I can get Explorer for Macs, OK?

I like chrome , however I'm not a fan of sending google data. And before anyone says it - even when you turn off monitoring it STILL uses your computer to scrape data for google on private sites. There's no way around it other than using Iron, but then if I wanted to use Iron I would.

For the life of me I just can't get myself to dig Chrome.

I tried to give Chrome a go over the weekend. It kept crashing on me. It was noticeably quicker to load when it was working though.

Same here. Google's entire business is built around collecting your personal data and selling it. You don't earn billions by delivering cat pictures.

Me either. FF runs just fine, i think a majority of the issues with FF is at layer 8.

I've been using Chrome almost exclusively since it was first released in beta.

I'm the opposite. I've always though FF was buggy and crude, even way back when IE really sucked.

I never heard of Iron OS before. But I just noticed another one called SeaMonkey.

Let's see about that one shall we....

FF had a very cool add-on that would load the next page of a forum. As you scrolled down, it would load the 3rd page, etc.

Is anything like that available for Chrome?

ITT People that don't know how to use FF..
Link Posted: 9/29/2011 5:36:54 PM EDT
I want to like Chrome, mostly because it is HTML5 compatible, but FF7 is what I use. FF6 had some issues, and it seems like everything is fixed with FF7. I also couldn't live without the add-ons.
Link Posted: 9/29/2011 5:59:58 PM EDT
Funny that just as I was reading this thread I decided to check the version number of my FF, and it was downloading the new v7. It just restarted. I wonder how this will work out.

I noticed more and more things stopped working with FireFox, usually highly sensitive things like my 401k account, bill pay with my bank. Also kept crashing like crazy. Started to remind me of IE in the 90's.

I switched to Chrome. There are things about it that irk me because I am so used to FF, but websites work and it doesn't crash.

And a Yugo would look hot and appropriate with a Firefox logo sticker on it. But for the vast majority of PC users out there IE is the way to be. Secure, fast, stable, easy to use...other than some misguided sense of sticking it to 'M$', whats not to like?

Every version of Firefox so far has worked well for me.
Link Posted: 9/29/2011 6:39:54 PM EDT
Just DL'd Chrome and I'm using it now, seems OK.

Where are the "tools" and other things you usually can access to change settings in Chrome? For example, I want to have new links open in a new window instead of a tab - how do I do that?

Thanks,

Has Chrome fixed their video issues? Youtube or other videos would not play. It kept asking for a download that would never work.
Link Posted: 9/29/2011 6:48:22 PM EDT
Been using Chrome for quite awhile now...won't be going back. Don't have FF installed. I keep IE around because there are some sites that require it so...but Chrome is the winner by far.

I use Chrome now.
As a former FF user there are a few things I miss but not enough to use FF anymore.
As most heavy computer users, we all have several browsers installed and ready for use, but for the last half a year Chrome has been my goto browser.

That's what I first thought when I first downloaded and used Chrome.
In fact I hated it so much I uninstalled it after a week.
But now it's my goto browser.

Also, just like FastestFox, there is a FastestChrome - they work the same and very well, also free.
