The Winner is...................................
 
Chrome

I just can't ignore how fast this browser has become. It practically explodes into life, on my linux system, and nearly as fast on 7. FF is still good , bu i am finding that it is slower and has become a bit vulnerable recently..
I'm not so keen on Chromes layout , but i am getting used to it,the speed has done it for me.

I love it. Fast, stable, elegant, expandable.

- Doesnt nag about stupid crap all the time.
- Doesnt have a bulky interface filled with useless junk.
- Doesnt break like IE.
- Doesnt crash when plugins crash.
- Integrated address/search bar.
- Could care less about junk toolbars.

Yep, agreed and I use it all the time. Syncing is an awesome feature.

Re: The Winner is...................................
 
If Chrome could develop a semi-modern way of handling bookmarks (no dates and feels clunky now) and better download manager integration (FlashGot or similiar) and the ability to NOT bog down when opening multiple tabs in the background (Something that bloatmonkey Firefox can do) then I'm sold. I really like the browser, but they need to fix those things for it to work for me.

Use to use Chrome but went back to FF. Chrome can't load pages half the time.

Chrome doesn't support the CA or certificates I need, so it's not for me.

+1. FF is way too slow and such a memory hog compared to Chrome.

I keep removing this, and reinstalling this. Just reinstalled again.

Like:
Faster than firefox when opening up.

Dislike:
There's no favorites/bookmarks menu below the address bar, before I could middle mouse click, and it would open up in a new tab. Now I have to open a new tab, and type in the address. I added a speedial, and it still takes longer. Is there an extension for like a bookmarks toolbar?
The AdBlocker isn't that great. :(

Chrome uses more than one cpu, love it for that. Going back to ff feels like switching from ssd > hdd.
