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 should match Chrome for usability, and beat it handily for overall speed.


Take that with a grain of salt, especially since the Firefox guys publish benchmarks comparing their latest code with code released months ago. One has to wonder why... Don't assume - like FF devs do -- that the Chrome devs collectively went on a holiday after the 6.xxx release! Besides, why would I trust a benchmark released by Mozilla itself using their own benchmarking tools over something like peacekeeper, that seems to simulate real world scenarios (social networking, logins, encrypting connections, graphics commonly or not so commonly encountered on webpages, etc.). As it stands now, their new javascript engine must beat the one in FF 3.6 by 250% to become competitive against current stable release of Chrome.
