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.

Firefox 4's Jaegermonkey javascript engine will just about match Chrome's V8 javascript engine, and Firefox 4 will support hardware accelerated page rendering and compositing, which will outperform Chrome's rendering speeds by many times over.

I believe it when I see it. Don't get me wrong, I really hope this will be the case but judging from some nightlies I really do not have much hope in that. I have to try a fresh nightly, though. Oh and I use Firefox. I only use Chrome when some site is just to horrible slow with Firefox (e.g. when browsing a very long archive on tumblr Firefox sometimes gets so slow it needs >15 seconds to react after each click).
