I decided to give Chrome a chance since it now supports extensions. Has firefox finally met its match?

Well, the verdict is clear: there is no comparison, especially with the *one Firefox extension that everyone uses* that you wonder how users of other browsers can do without.

I don't care how fast or how many other features other browsers have. I refuse to use an internet that's full of junk that I'm not interested in.


If you are talking about Adblock, be aware that the ad-blocking extensions for Chrome don't really block ads so much as hide them from view. Your bandwidth and page-loading time will still be consumed for someone to send you advertising content, even if that content is not displayed to you.
