Chrome at work (and IE for compatibility), Firefox at home. Always been the way.

It's hard to go back to Firefox after Chrome 10. I was on the latest Firefox, giving it a try, till this latest release of Chrome.

They have made a great browser, but it has it's problems for me.
they have adblock, notscript (noscript), i don't see downthemall but i see a similar photo download program, they also have Xmarks bookmark sync, tabcloud, and several other extensions and apps.

this simply isn't an excuse not to like chrome.

i love chrome. i have tried everything out there (safari, ff, multiple interpretations of ff, opera, IE9(sucks), and some with built in proxies (stupid but worked temporarily running from flash drive at school))

Well with Notscript being available, there are two things stopping me from switching, assuming I would want to.

One is DownThemAll. I've used it for a long time and like it. I'm not saying that specific addon would need to be available for Chrome, but something that replaces its functionality would need to be. A "photo download program" wouldn't cut it as far as I can tell.

Secondly, and funny enough, the fact that Google Toolbar can't be installed in Chrome stops me from switching. I know you can Ctrl+F in pretty much every program to search for words, including Chrome, but the toolbar provides more functionality than that. You can type in a whole phrase, and then each word gets color-coded separately instead of as a phrase if you choose to highlight. Then, you can click on individual words to skip down to each one independent of the phrase. Or, if you put some of it in quotes, whatever is quoted gets treated as a single entity; So whatever is in quotes would be searched for and highlighted as a single entity even with other words being in the search box. I actually use these different things quite often.

I would consider trying to switch again if those addons could be replaced. Otherwise, no thanks.

Something that also looms in my mind, though, is knowing how Google is with tracking "anonymous usage statistics" with pretty much everything they make. Even when they do disclaim it, who's to say what's really going on behind the scenes, and if this stuff really is anonymous. I'm not a conspiracy theorist or super paranoid, but I don't think anyone could be blamed with at least suspecting something with their track record. It could very well be anonymous and non-infringing, but who knows?

They arent as good. It has already been brought up in this thread that the chrome counter parts of noscript and ABP simply dont perform as well as the FF versions.

When they catch up, i'll consider the move to chrome, but till then a few milliseconds isnt worth giving up the far superior firefox addons.

I'm picky, I like Firefox's Noscript & Adblock too much to switch over. I just don't like Chrome's Adblock or Noscript.

I read that too, but I think it was referring to AdBlock for Chrome, not "NotScript." Maybe I misread and need to go back.

Anyway, I'm also partial to FF's version of each just because I've used them for so long, but I would be willing to try Chrome's version if they provided equal functionality and protection. But, as I said in my last post, not having DownThemAll and Google Toolbar for the search and highlight functions makes it a no-go for me.

FF4 RC1 is actually much snappier than 3.6 too. I didn't use the betas for a while because, when I tried it out during an early version, none of the addons were supported. Now they all are, and I definitely notice a performance increase. I've played with Chrome over the past months, and it isn't blazingly faster than Rc1, if noticeably at all.
