    This deal was a no brain er for everyone involved,Google has to keep Firefox for no other reason than to deflect the glare of government regulators who are already raking Google over any number perceived acts of maleficence.The Firefox replacement options were a little thin, I.E?,opera?,CHROME?(not on a bet),Safari?.

    Hooray!!!! I'm so pleased Firefox will be around for a while yet.

    I tried Google Chrome for a while (and don't get me started on IE!) but the flexibility and fully customisable featureset of Firefox means I shalln't be straying any time soon.

    More power to their elbow! :)

    Chrome sucks... Firefox is the best browser...

    ohh... but i have accessed TechSpot on Chrome... ;)

  9. I am sorry. Firefox is the first one in the world and after that all the IE, Google Chrome...etc. Simply everyone is following Firefox. I never go out of Firefox.
  10. And as to the recent highly publicised "statistics" about Chrome "overtaking" Firefox...

    Still, marketing will always prevail because there are more than enough suckers out there.
