The extensions Chrome is getting just makes it better and better - and it's faster than Firefox altogether.

sure chrome may be faster them firefox, but opera is the fastest and best browser out there i find.
I has had options way before anyone else and it just keeps getting better n better.

It now has something call "opera turbo" where it will load pages much quicker if you are on a slower connection. it does this by degrading the images a bit, which is actually pretty cool. i have yet to see any other browser do this.
It also has something called 'opera unite' where 2 ppl who are using opera can share files with each other with out the wait of uploading. now thats cool!

Ok so I just started using Google Chrome as my browser. It is a HELL of a lot faster than IE and Firefox. Firefox took up everything, I always have like 7 tabs open. Doing that made my games lag and videos lag, when I did that with IE I had no problems. So here I am using Chrome. Wooo I think I am going to like Chrome.

Neither did I. I thought Chrome was the browser of choice.

It is for me, at least.

I'd hate for them to sell the government my log in for this site.

I would probably be using Firefox too if it wasn't such a resource hog, since I really hate Google as a company. But I don't really like Chrome all that much either for other various reasons (like the one you mentioned).

I still use Firefox to this day. In fact, I'm using Firefox for Android right now. I have few reasons for that: Resources aren't usually issue for me (and Chrome eats up more RAM than Firefox when you have too many tabs open anyway), the speed difference is usually barely notable, the Awesome Bar is way better than the Omni Bar, I have all my history and favorites synced accross devices with Firefox Sync, I like its developer tools better, it doesn't shove unnecessary Google stuff down your throat, and Mozilla is an awesome organization. So yeah, Firefox for life.
