In the News NetApplications has released its latest browser market share figures, and these figures show that Chrome has overtaken Safari as the number three browser worldwide, behind Internet Explorer and Firefox. IE, by the way, continues to lose popularity rather fast.

RE[2]: I didn't like it

I use FlashBlock and AdBlock+ happily on my Chrome

Unfortunately I have found that these extensions for Chrom do not work properly. They hide blocked material from view OK, but the browser still downloads the hidded data.

Adblock Plus and Flashblock on Firefox can both prevent the unwanted data from even being downloaded, saving both page load times and user's bandwidth.

This fact alone can make Firefox effectively faster that Chrome/Chromium, even though the latter can render the page's data quicker once it has been downloaded to the browser.
