    do you think Google chrome browser is better then the Firefox?
    i use extensions unavailable to the Google chrome browser like Automatic Save Folder or Scrapbook. so what's the big hype? it's a nice browser looks awesome but seriously lack of ext. i just want to see why some people use it. i cant understand.

    i do recommend it for those who do not use extensions w/in firefox.

    I use firefox. My Computer is just way too crappy to make Chrome go fast. Even my Opera browser goes faster. Not Chromes fault, its just my computer.

    I have to pick Firefox, because it has extension which Chrome currently lacks.

    However, I'll use Swiftfox or Iceweasel instead of Firefox, mainly performance increase.

    Google chrome is light on the computer, while firefox hogs up some processes. but idk, maybe firefox 4 is better.

    I dunno, Google Chrome has been better for me. Firefox absolutely eats my memory, while Chrome takes less and delivers faster speeds.

    Google chrome is really fast, I've been a firefox user for a while but it is notably slower loading web pages and starting up for me (The process list should show the difference in memory usage as well) Now the lack of extensions is a bother but I can live with it considering everything is a bit quicker, for me google chrome is the best browser available (just my opinion)

    Google Chrome is faster.

    Mozilla Firefox has more add-ons.

    ---

    That being said, the only add-on I need/use for a browser is an ad-blocker, which Google Chrome has.

    I use Google Chrome.

    That is all.

    i cant live w/o my extensions i currently use over 24 and yes i use them all LoL but i do like the Firefox theme "Chrome" cause that is def one thing i like bout Google chrome is the whole theme it looks slick but other then that i can sacrifice speed for quality meaning better variety of extensions [​IMG]

    I prefer Firefox if the speed is bearable, but on slow computer I pretty much suck it up and use Google even if it isn't as flexible.

    Chrome Beats FF3, FF4 beats chrome, (rendering) Speed wise anyway.

    Ram, of course Chrome Wins

    IE9 is the fastest, and most HTML5 compliant browser out there at the moment. However, the IE9 beta is buggy. i also noticed it being slightly slower than FF4 on lower-end PC's.

    ...What, now?

    I use FF just because it has better addons. Aside from that, Chrome FTW.

    Chrome's faster and has more security features (sandboxing and protected mode to name two, the second one finally working right with flash now that they've got it internalized).

    Does chrome allow protection from Antivirus software? (Norton to name an example)

    I used to use both, but then all the extensions I needed from Firefox were ported to Chrome, which I prefer to use because it is the fastest web browser available. I use the dev builds.

    It depends on what kind of protection you mean.

    If you mean the "scans everything that's downloaded" protection, that works with every browser since the system scans every file that's created.

    If you're talking the "will alert you about bad websites and block them", chrome does that by itself.
