    OT Question

    Microsoft announced their new IE9 yesterday and one of the so called features was "Chrome speed".

    I am using Google Chrome for my browser and like it's ease and quickness. Anyone else here using it?

    Just curious.

    I use firefox with the noscript addon. I've used chrome as well, its a good browser. Never use IE for anything.

    look forward to when google launches their full pc os.

    Thanks for the response.

    On Google's full PC OS, do you think Bill Gates shares your anticipation?

    I've used Firefox since its inception

    I have Chrome, like it... but not enough to ditch FF on most of my machines. Work (WinXP), primary PC (Kubuntu Linux) both have and use FF. My phone (Cliq - Android) uses Opera Mini because there is no chrome or FF for it.

    I have a laptop (Slackware Linux) that runs Opera, one (Win 7) that runs Chrome/sometimes FF

    Chrome is slick, I like it.

    I think you'll see a glowing similarity between the browser and the OS when the Google boys get around to releasing it.

    Firefox issues?

    I use Firefox on the desktop, and it's starting to act up. Seems to stutter at times, takes forever to start up, and gives me "non-responsive script" errors. Half the time it doesn't reload my open tabs either.

    The netbook has Chrome. Great for a slower computer, and less junk taking up already limited screen real estate.

    Exactly why I switched to Chrome...while open carrying in my home office I might add.

    Hmm so it isn't just me then eh? I've been using Chrome more & more on the desktop too, I just hate the idea of moving all my bookmarks & passwords over Maybe FF is anti-oc or something.

    I have six browsers on my laptops (I design/manage sites), including Chrome. My defailt, though, is Firefox.

    I do not have any versions of IE on any of my machines. In fact my machines are a "Microsoft Free Zone" ...
