    And there are beta versions for Mac OS X and Linux as well. I still use Firefox, but Chrome is getting better and better...

    hm...
    i'm still not convinced to switch over yet. hopefully this will push firefox developers to make drastic changes, if not then i will be making a change myself.

    There are several ad blockers available. In the official extension gallery, I know of two (AdSweep and AdThwart), and there several more I dont think are in the gallery (AdBlock+ and DvrCr Ad Blocker or something weird like that). And there are site specific ones for sites like facebook etc as welll.

    According to the "Ad Sweeper" extension page, all it can do is HIDE the ads, due to limitations to what javascript extensions can do. Also, it crashes occasionally I hear. So if those are enough problems for you to not try it, then don't get it.

    Some people recommend AdThwart which blocks some ads from loading/connecting to while Ad Sweeper can HIDE the others AdThwart can't block.

    On the good side, XMarks for Chrome is now Beta so that's pretty cool. If you still have the ALPHA, you must manually update it (no need to uninstall) at this page.

    I downloaded the beta version, and, it sucked.


    It's only a web browser. No desktop, no nothing.

    Hmm... no Adblock is a deal-breaker for me. Of course, Google would never make Chrome Adblock-compatible because they are responsible for most of the ads on the internet in the first place. [​IMG]

    AdBlocker and Greasemonkey (mainly the Youtube Enhancer script) and I will be sold. Until then, Firefox ftw.

    i have liked google chrome as it is faster on some websites than firefox but script handling and overall add-on availability makes firefox better for me
    nice work with the extensions addition, it doesnt seem to far tht google would be on par with firefox though firefox first page is google hence advertising google themselves

    Google chrome is only good because of its OMNI bar...(in my opinion)

    I never tried Google Chrome, but I don't think I will ever. I like Firefox too much. [​IMG]
