Google Chrome Overtakes Firefox


It interesting. I wish to see a day when you will not expect your visitors using IE.

I wish I could see the day where people would not use outdated versions of software...

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 currently using FF8 on Archlinux and it's working like a charm.
Since FF6 I switched back from Chrome to FF.

With their rapid developpement method plus the fact that I still have some privacy with it make it a big winner IMO.

I've seen they plan on getting to version 20 in 2013.
They seem to be agressive on getting back what they lost to chrome

I was a little surprised by this but I shouldn't be. I realize I have been using Chrome primarily for at least the last 6 months.. but I do have Chrome and Firefox both open on an almost daily basis.

Chrome just seems faster, if 1 window crashes they all don't. I just wish it would reopen all my tabs when I restart it.

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

I've been using Firefox way too long.

At v8 now and so used to its interface that just the though of switching to something else permanently, I cringe.

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.

So thumbs up for FireFox from me

Chrome is great, but it has issues, specifically with flash constantly crashing. It's fast, it's lightweight, but when that happens every day, it's pretty much a major issue.

Once Google put their minds onto something, it is hard for other companies to compete.

I don't care for chrome, but I use it on a few sites that probably get profiled the most for 'browser averages' (internet brands forum communities)

I use Firefox on Linux, Chrome on Windows.

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.
