Chrome is great - I'm sad to see Firefox slump because I think we owe a lot to Mozilla and I think they can do better. But Chrome is fantastic - while FF4567 is a vast improvement over 3.5 if you have a decent amount of RAM, it's still a clunky beast if you're a power-browser.
I can't remember the last time Chrome crashed on me, or went slow (outside of loading a PDF).
I actually blogged about this early this morning. I still remember the days (by Y2K) when Netscape Navigator fell from grace, shrinking from 70%+ to <5% in just a few years.

I'm not too suprised to be honest, I really like firefox and still using it but lately it's getting slow and takes up a lot of resources. I tried Chrome and really like it, a few problem here an dthere but overall it's great
Chrome is great when you get your new computer and load it up the first time. Within a couple of months though you realize that it has a fair share of problems. Major one being the shockwave issue. I also tend to have many tabs open on Chrome and it lags a bit there as well. Cant complain because for some reason im still using it lol
If you're the smartest person in the room then you're in the wrong room
I think I am the only one here who really don't like Chrome, I can't explain why but I like Firefox more than Chrome.
Also it is strange that for everyone Chrome is fast but for me Chrome is dead slow, may be my PC has some virus or something that makes it slow. I never read any complaint about Chrome on any site that it is slow so it must be something wrong with my PC.
And I feel that my choice is based upon what works the best for each platform. I seem to have more issues with Firefox when using Win7, where as Firefox runs flawlessly in Fedora 15.
Chrome on the other hand is my prefered browser when using Windows, but on Fedora15 things display differently and websites like Twitter will auto-crash the browser.

Google wants Chrome to be their platform for netbooks. They see apps run on Chromebooks, as well as porting popular desktop apps like word processing to online version. Google wants users to start using Google Docs, and a browser written by them can best handle the tasks.
I totally agree that Google Chrome overtakes Firefox already. I'm using this web browser for over a year, coz' I'm experiencing slow loading of web pages using Firefox. Google Chrome would be better if they will implement something that they can add third-party add-ons just like Firefox did. For now, I have Seoquake installed on this browser.
I made the switch to Chrome last year from FireFox and have never looked back. No more memory usage bugs and if I lose power or if Chrome crashes when I reopen all of my tabs are restored. (I still use FireFox for testing and the damn memory usage bugs remain! GD! Why can't they figure this out? People have only been complaining about it since version 1.)
I have chrome and firefox Both..
But i use Firefox most of time ... I like the Plugin's Flag fox, some SEO, and alexa toolbaar ETC make It perfect for browsing ... I love fire fox with Its Plugins...
I have tried to install some games into The chrome bout faild to install.. so i have stopped using that much.. Only some time use chrome,,,,,
Again, read what I said
Apple has the #1 selling phone every year, has for the past 3 years. This year they're on their way to #1 and #2.
Android can't compete on a phone basis, because it's not a phone, it's an operating system. Of course, the more popular operating system is always, always going to be the one that is in more phones, however, you can't compare android with an iPhone. They're two completely different beasts. One is an OS, and one is a phone.
i'm using chrome since first day it came , for personal usage i think it's the greatest thing google ever made , although it gets problems from time to time but i can understand it as i'm always using developer channel so a bit away from stable versions
only problems i face with it is crashed plugins from time to time
on other hand i tried firefox latest aurora version and i think it's good but not as good as chrome , for now at least
i believe chrome did a revolution on this industry , but it's continuous and fast updates keeping other browsers unable to take breath trying to follow the speed of it
