Owned !!

I hope im not the only one who got that :S

Anyway, i will download the latest beta and give it a shot. I tried beta 3, but that was rubbish compared to Chrome dev (at the time). Im still an FF fan, but Chrome is just winning me over atm.

The whole Chromium loads faster than Firefox is a placebo. Chromium loads the window slightly faster but you still have to wait 2 seconds before the Google homepage loads. On the other hand, Firefox window loads only once the home page is ready.

By Chromium having the window draw first, it is an illusion that it is the fault of the ISP and not Chromium. Firefox shows up once the web page has loaded.

This is where people get the idea Chromium is faster.

I use both, I just haven't updated my sig rig, on Linux I use Chromium and Firefox 4 Beta 10.

I noticed a huge difference when I loaded up all my extensions, when I do that in Chrome, Chromium, Firefox 3.6, Pale Moon 3.6 and Firefox 4 beta 10, the only two that don't slow down dramatically are Pale Moon and the Firefox 4 beta.

To me, on Windows Chrome is like Windows XP...It's extremely fast when you first install it but it slows down dramatically over time as you add to it. (Just the amount of time is reduced)
Plus, the plugins seem to have less of a good base (Eg. LastPass for Firefox is far superior to the Chrome version)

There's also other ways that a browser can be fast.

I still find it ridiculous that so many people give up features for an unnoticeable gain in speed.

Oh it's noticeable, and what features am I giving up. I was a fanatical Firefox user before my recent switch to Chrome and all I can say is thank god I did.

I've been using Firefox for a good 4 years now at least and lately it has just been SLOW and instability hell, crashing all the time. So I just imported my bookmarks from Firefox into Chrome and installed the Chrome versions of the Firefox extensions I had. A completely seamless switch which took all of about ten minutes and now I'm having a much better browsing experience.

So you are saying its noticeable when you browse the internet? This is the one thing im not getting as I dont see any difference, excluding that FF may load up slightly slower (1-3 seconds max). Some websites load faster on Chrome, while others on FF, but it sure isnt like 5-10 seconds, but mere 1-2 second difference.

Ok I gotcha. We'll have to agree to disagree I guess. They're both fast browsers. I like what they have done with Firefox 4 beta 9.

I did load 1 by 1. You can see the difference. Then I did some simultaneous loads using windows key + 2 and 3 at the same time. I then showed you that chrome is running more extensions than firefox.

This is firefox 4 beta 9. I didn't even show canary build because Firefox users would be more embarrassed.

Sorry about the sound. I didn't know it was recording that. My gf was playing l4d2.
I recognised L4D2 without reading the last line of that post. I know the SMG sound too well

Silly fanboys.

Every browser has different uses

IE is for downloading a different browser, and I use FF for daily stuff and Chrome for other things sometimes.

I also use portable versions of FF and Chrome on my flash drive for restricted computers and such, because all they normally have is IE
