    Ok I decided to give Chrome a try coming from IE9 due to a problem I had with fonts. For all the Chrome junkies on TPU I wanna know any tricks or tips out there for this thing.

    This is what I do:

    Install it.

    Use it as a browser. Not much more to it than that.

    Use Opera instead is the best add-on.

    So what don't you like about FF? Not suggesting that you use it instead just wondering...

    I can guess.

    Chrome is new.

    FF is really old.

    People like to try new thing.

    It is not necessarily better, but it's the "new" thing.

    They are all about the same, but as the Internet has taught us, we must chose our side and fight to the death about the pros and cons of our personal choice. What he asked us for is irrelevant.

    OPERA!!!!!!

    No! You must have 5000 add-ons and plugins so you can look leet to your only friend, your mom, as she yells at you from upstairs to get off the computer and get a job.
