Internet & Networking Now this is a subject sure to cause some discussion among all of you. LifeHacker's Adam Pash is arguing that Chrome has overtaken Firefox as the browser of choice for what he calls 'power users'; polls among LifeHacker's readership indeed seem to confirm just that. He also gives a number of reasons as to why this is the case.

Switched to Chrome on Day 1

I admit, I pretty much switched to Chrome the day it was released.

However, I always keep Firefox installed and updated as well - and will often use it interchangeably (although Chrome serves as my default browser, both browsers are side-by-side on my windows quicklaunch bar). Edit: To clarify, IE doesn't even earn a place on the launch bar any longer - I've even removed it from my start menu at home to prevent accidental usage.

Firefox still serves as a backup browser for some websites that Chrome doesn't handle properly for some reason.

Strangely enough - I even used Chrome during the "dark days" before it had an ad blocking extension. And suffered a degraded browsing experience compared to firefox because the speed and pleasure of using Chrome outweighed the desire to block ads. I guess everyone has different priorities.
