      Pretty hard to say. Chrome’s lightness is pretty hard to beat because its specially designed in this way, rendering engine etc. But one thing that I miss like hell is Firefox Addons where Firefox beats every other browser of world :)

    Chrome is a good and fast browser fast but not the fastest. I’m using Opera for several years and it still seems the fastest.

      @Erkan Well..i have experience with Opera, Firefox, Chrome, IE – before Chrome, Firefox was clear winner – i don’t know it seemed for me more user friendly than Opera. Not sure if faster.

      Looks like now it just depends from your taste – when I really tried out Chrome first time, I really fell in love with its simplicity, easy extension installation and incredible speed! I would just suggest to give Chrome a try if you haven’t – but really there is no right choice :) Depends from taste and needs.

      Hey DAVID! Chrome is so much faster than Firefox. I have been using Chrome since its beta, and let me tell you, I have not been disappointed. Since I do a lot of work with web, I would have to say that Firefox is the web developers browser, but not for long. Chrome does have Firebug lite which can be used on Chrome or any browser that supports extensions and such. I hope this helps! :)

    I agree with Saad’s opinion about Firefox’s addons. It is still the best choice for development with all those tools and massive followings. I’ve been using Chrome for quite some time now and by far this is the fastest browser I’ve used. One thing I don’t like with Chrome is how much memory is used because of the per-tab count, unlike with Firefox. Or am I just dreaming?

    I’ve got so many things set up just so in Firefox add-ons that it’ll be hard to make a switch to Chrome. Plus I’m not very enthused that Chrome plans to drop .h264 support and add yet another video format to the mix.

    Will surely give some of these addons a try even though I am still a firefox user and I am really hesitant to switch to Chrome. One of the main reason is Firefox’s bookmark control. I really love it!

    Almost everyone seems to like Chrome. I am using it right now and have been testing it for a while and I have to say it is not good. Probably the worst browser I’ve used on a Mac. Here’s why.
    1. Does play nice with Pandora. Not sure why. It won’t do anything when I click on the majority of buttons in Pandora to edit my profile, song list, etc. Perhaps it would work better if it didn’t automatically update Flash all the time……
    2. It automatically updates. Everything! AND there is NO WAY to turn that OFF! OMG I hate that! I don’t want it to automatically install and update Flash every time there is a new release of it. Flash releases are NOT always stable. I like to wait a while before updating it. The latest is not always the greatest, Google.
    3. Speaking of which, what is up with your version numbers? 9.0.597.107? I don’t need to know that. All I want to see is version 9.0 or 9.1 or 9.2. We as users do not care about version numbers that look like IP addresses or Asian phone numbers.
    4. It automatically updates. Everything! Oh, I’ sorry, did I already say that?
    5. Bookmark management is awful. No separators. No tags. Poor organization.
    6. When I type something in the address bar, I DO NOT want to automatically be taken to Google to show me search results for what I typed. I want to go to the freakin’ website that I typed in.
    7. Preferences are hidden in weird spots that are difficult to find. For example, the Content Settings button under Privacy. Why not just have that info right in the preference pane instead of having me open another window? I mean, the preference pane already has a freakin’ scroll bar in it for some reason. A SCROLL BAR in a PREFERENCE PANE! WTF! Poor UI design.
    8. It automatically updates. Everything!

    I can see how Windows users would welcome Chrome since all they have had to use these long, dark years is IE or a slow Firefox. Mac users are treated better by our browsers. In fact, even Camino is better than Chrome. It’s faster, well thought out, and easier to find what I want.

    @Saad Bassi : thank you ! Chrome 9 is really fast … but Opera still has great features.

    Chrome is a good and fast browser fast but not the fastest. I’m using Opera for several years and it still seems the fastest.

      @Erkan Well..i have experience with Opera, Firefox, Chrome, IE – before Chrome, Firefox was clear winner – i don’t know it seemed for me more user friendly than Opera. Not sure if faster.

      Looks like now it just depends from your taste – when I really tried out Chrome first time, I really fell in love with its simplicity, easy extension installation and incredible speed! I would just suggest to give Chrome a try if you haven’t – but really there is no right choice :) Depends from taste and needs.

      P.S they are done on Chrome 2. Right now Chrome’s version is 9 so pretty big difference here as well :)

    How good is ccsscan? I only use firefox because I have firebug. Is there any supplement as powerful as firebug in chrome?

      Hey DAVID! Chrome is so much faster than Firefox. I have been using Chrome since its beta, and let me tell you, I have not been disappointed. Since I do a lot of work with web, I would have to say that Firefox is the web developers browser, but not for long. Chrome does have Firebug lite which can be used on Chrome or any browser that supports extensions and such. I hope this helps! :)
