    Once Chrome gets some more of the addons I use or incorpirates them as features I am leaving fire fox.

    Chrome has adblock plus. I have it as a matter of fact

    Themes. Also, simplicity seems to be a common reason for people having it.

    This....Exactly
    I'm so tired of the Plugin Container crash that requires a reboot to fix that I simply quit using FireFox...and then when it seems they got it all fixed out comes another update to screw it all up again...

    To be honest, I just uninstalled Chrome a few days ago. I do not like it at all. I'm back to IE9.

    The scrolling is so much smoother with IE compared to Chrome. I read a lot on the internet so smooth scrolling is very important to me. It was the look of Chrome that got me using it.

    at least that's more legitimate than "too plain looking". lol.
    i mean that's your opinion, but why share it like that? that's entirely subjective and of no consequence - except the software SUCKS because you don't like it's looks? jesus grow up.

    People should try IE9 before saying anything.

    I personally use Chrome, but I setup my clients' PC with IE9 for compatibility, and so far everyone is happy with it.

    I use IE9 time to time and it's actually as fast as Chrome (sometime even faster). I haven't seen any crashes either.

    Firefox... the more plugins you have the more "lag" you get just like rubberband in BF3.

    IE9 is, and forever will be, the devil.

    I use it every day at work. It sucks I hate it and it lags like fucking hell on pages with things that move. My netbook with less than half the processing power and firefox can render pages without lagging. I tried it and I still think its crap on a fucking stick any other questions?

    I use chrome from first beta/alpha. Never looked back. Its fast and "Plain" which means i dont have shit everyware and the options etc are easy to get to it works fast on every PC I need to tune up. When my site is messing up it has dev options I can click on them and figure out exactly what is going wrong. I absolutely love chrome. I think more people should give it a try. Its fast sleek doesnt crash for me at all via the latest dev build. add-ons or good if you dont want stupid shit like kittens crawling around on your browser. and if youre one of those people probably deserve to get shot.

    Considering the work PC's are C2Q's and phenom X4's they aren't exactly sluggish. In fact its weird IE9 lags the same even on the crappy P4's we got floating around still...I wonder if its just a poorly coded POS like every other interent exploder product. Did they ever fix the huge gaping security holes in it?

    You must be mistaken then. I'm itchy to make a video just to show you how quick it is.

    Not going to change personal experiences with it. Its also not the multiple T3 lan being sluggish ;)

    Yeah, I'll second that. It so pisses me off when the Flash plugin stops working and the whole sodding browser locks up. Come on Mozilla, how hard can this be?

    Oh wow...

    Ever heard of themes? My theme is black with textured orange for the most part, and the new tab page is a skeleton on fire smashing a guitar on a speaker. High res high quality too. Tell me that's 'plain looking'.

    Again, there a plugin for that. Smoothscroll I think its called. I also have it. Works great.

    Seriously guys it's not hard to figure this stuff out.

    Oh and to the guy who said he just reloads his 100+ tabs when mozilla crashes, no need for that in chrome. Each tab is a seperate process, so if something crashes, all is not lost. Secondly, chrome has its own task manager to end said process(es). Apparently IE runs seperate processes, but uhh.. it's still IE.

    Not 100% sure about mozilla but chrome also has this 'create application shortcuts' tool which I use. Basically it makes the page you are viewing an app via a shortcut on your desktop. This is good for, say, checking your bank account online with a simple double click, rather than going into your browser and clicking bookmarks.

    So that's just a few things that I use anyway..

    I love chrome, it's plain, lean and simple, yet still is elegant. I prefer the clean look of a Lamborghini then a FAIL like:
