I am actually just trying out the Chrome web browser for the first time today, and am amazed by how smoking fast it is. I don't know WHAT they did, but they did something right here. It feels like it's twice as fast as Firefox. The only downside for me, though, is that I kind of like the feel and interface of Firefox much better, so I will probably alternate between the two: I'll use Firefox most of the time, but use Chrome if I'm needing to do some very internet/browser intensive things, and need the extra power/speed. I really encourage those who haven't tried this to download and install it, just to see the speed of it. Anyone else have any opinions on it?

Yeah I have a feeling that you're right - I'm just marveling at Chrome's speed right now. Also, I'd have to say that Firefox usually gives me a good 2 or 3 crashes a day, and I've yet to experience that with Chrome.

Of course they did something. They used a new render engine which is freakin fast.

BTW
Firefox is the slower of the IE opponents.
Generally this is the speed chart of the browsers:

- IE
- Firefox
- Opera
- Chrome and Safari.

I'm using Chrome for quite some time too. The interface is light and easy to do, especially with the bookmark icons you can put below the address bar.

I've been using Chrome for about 7 months now. I realy love it. I've switched from using FF. This browser is extremely fast. The only downside i see is when I go idle for about 30 minutes to 1 hour, it hangs when you click on the tabs. But overall, the large screen is very useful. Overall, I'd choose Chrome over FF any day.

we have the same problem with chrome, especially when you're watching something, leave it for 30 mins, you'll lose everything you buffered. lol, but overall Chrome is simpler, much easier to use than FF

I use FF but ever since I downloaded FireFox 3.5 that thing went downhill quick. I keep having problems loading sites on FireFox 3.5 <_<

So I barely just switched to Google Chrome right now and like it so far. Much more quicker and simple navigation. :rock: I'll still use FF though but doubt I'll use it most of the time like it usually became to be.

Have you tried Firefox 3.6? It runs great for me.

Didn't know that was released already. I'll check it out when I get home.

Firefox add-ons can smash everything tbh.
Now with Personas and the faster render engine is undefeatable.

Google Chrome has adblock as well. =P

Chrome is going to be really tough to beat now... especially with all of it's extensions (Greasemonkey is huge for Chrome).

Using Chrome now with all of the nice extensions. I also like how clean the interface is.

Will use Chrome until Firefox 4.0 comes out, then it will be tough to decide.

I use Google Chrome at home and won't be turning back. It has the addons that I need although if it did have a Foxy Tunes extension I would be very happy. Firefox just got to buggy and slow on my system. Chrome is the future and so is Google OS, might as well get used to it now.

I wouldn't say Google OS is the future for now in terms of replacing WIndows, at least for Desktops. It's going to take awhile for Web Apps to catch up.
