    Gotta love Chrome.

    Exactly this day, but a year ago, I would never even come close to Chrome. Now it's nothing but love.

    Although I still have the Fox around.

    Every release of firefox we get people bitching about their rapid updates and threats to switch to chrome if they don't stop.

    Chrome is on version 22.....

    If you followed computers, games or software in general you'd know that every update doesn't correspond to a whole number.

    I never cared about the updates. Firefox has just slowed down recently compared to chrome. Maybe it sped up by now or maybe it hasn't. All I care about is chrome is fast, has loads of add ons, and syncs well with everything. I dont have any reason to switch from it.

    Every major browser has those exact qualities. I don't believe the browser wars have started again. Pick your poison and enjoy.

    I would be a happy Chrome user if they released a x64 windows version. For that exact reason, I love Waterfox, and its great plugins. It could be lightweight like Chrome, but hey, I have these 8gigs of RAM and they do the job fine.
  11. ^and if Waterfox was put up against Chrome in a hacking contest like, say, Pwn2Own, who do you think would win? Chrome may be 32-bit, but it does have the sandbox and separate process for each tab to avoid complete browser crashes. Plus it's Chrome and it performs like a champ day after day.

    You must have a very crappy computer, because I have neither crashes or any problems with any browser. (Waterfox also has a separate plugin process that avoids crashes). And security-wise I have no complaints at all... No fanboysm here, I like Opera as well (as it also has 64bit support). Soon M$ will ditch 32bit for good, so, google'd better keep it up...
