This is may be due to IE adhering to the security protocols setup by your IT department based on settings while Chrome isn't, if my assumptions are correct.

Its because its the browser that comes with Windows and the IT department is too dumb to realize anything is better. My university has Firefox as it's default, with Chrome as an option.

No surprise. FF has become increasingly bloated over the years and honestly its simply met with stiff competition.

I personally prefer Opera over chrome because I feel its more up front with the interface and updates, more customizeable and I like being able to sync my settings and favorites outside of my gmail.

Wha ?

I don't doubt Chrome is faster than FF in sheer benchmarking power and boot speed. But FF = bloat ? Nah. If bloat is defined by the size of the program, then Chrome is more bloat-ish than firefox.

For instance : chrome folder = 200mb ; firefox folder = 38mb

I have found no advantage of Chrome over FF (don't really use IE, except to download FF). And I hate that it's sandboxed. I know that's one of the points of chrome browser, but I hate it. It makes me feel like I'm trying to look at a wide-open area, but all I can look through is a straw.

Yes and it's pointless too.

“The Chrome sandbox is the most secure sandbox out there. It’s not an easy task to create a full exploit to bypass all the protections in the sandbox. I can say that Chrome is one of the most secure browsers available.”

Doesn't sound so pointless to me. Are DEP and ASLR pointless when they're bypassed?

Also, they've made changes to the integrity levels to the Chrome sandbox since then. It's even stronger now than before.

I gotta say Google Chrome is faster than Firefox. YouTube videos load horribly slow on Firefox, I dunno if this is Google purposely making them slow on Firefox to drive you to Chrome, but it made me switch for sure.

Oh, wait, it didn't count--they allegedly used 3rd party code, so waaaaaaaaaa, doesn't count! rolleyes.gif

I use opera now. I don't really care what browser anyone uses but anyone who complains about a slow browser is full of it in my opinion. I've never seen any speed difference between all of the three major browsing environments. I blaze through work in opera like I blazed through work in firefox like I could blaze through work in chrome if I wanted. Page loading times mean nothing to me anymore because of the quality internet I have that I was never able to get before college. And even when I did have crappy internet, I still used firefox. It's all about workflow for me. Opera, firefox and chrome all have different feels as far as work flow goes, but the customization you get with opera and firefox is definitely a cut above chrome in every area.
