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.

But frankly, I don't think it's because I'm a power user (I'm not), and certainly not due to its feature set. I think it must be due to the feeling of speed alone, just from trying something new and enjoying it.

Chrome certainly has its fair share of annoying traits. To me, as a Linux user, I find the way I can't middle-click links into the browser page to be insulting. I've found that cut & paste sometimes stops working (at least on Slashdot). Other things, like how it handles tabs, the "clean" UI with the unified location/search bar, etc., are really only very superficial and does nothing for me. Come to think of it, maybe I should switch back.
