Default Chrome

Just started using Googles Chrome browser, it's really nice, screw MS and the explorer crap they keep feeding us, never really been a fan of Firefox myself...

If you like tons of add ons and skins and clutter and crap you may not like it so much as it's just simple, clean and fast...

Some small vids on how to use it:

Chrome is the best browser hands down. Firefox feels very slow after having used chrome.

FireFox feels to have slowed since it got to v3. Takes longer to open and it's not as snappy as it was, but it's still my fave. Gonna give Chrome another go though. I've not tried it since it 1st came out and I didn't liek it at the time; poor zoom, but I'm sure that will have been sorted.

It all comes down to whether you use plugins or not - if you do, firefox would be the way to go. I just like Chrome because of its simple interface and speed. IE 8 is also a very good browser, but I still prefer chrome.

Yeah I've been using IE8 on 7, too. But it's crashed a couple of times. I do use AB+ and NS on FF so I'll probably get that installed.

I like that it's gotten to the point where we have so many good web browsers. I still prefer FF, but I am awaiting Chrome 2, as well as IEPro being fully compatible with IE8. But for now, I'm going to stick with FF.

I don't know, really. I use Opera Mobile on my WinMo, but it's slower than Safari. Of course, nothing touches Skyfire for speed, but it's page viewing is laggy, due to it basically being an image.

I used Opera a while back on my PC and still use it on my phone. Probably the best browser you can get, but most webpages are designed for IE and Firefox. So I had to switch ::

I love the way it runs on my E71 though, very smooth and fast.
