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.

today chromes flavour of the month wasnt that long ago firefox and dont forget opera or safari and internet explorer i use them all . do we switch to firefox if it it overtakes chrome for speed and simplicity etc .Fact is thers a browser war on and the situation is constantly changing . Chrome is excellent but so is sr iron a derivative of chromium with none of the associated privacy concerns about google . Each to there own and right now i am using pc linux chrome to write this but i use firefox aswell . I have a mac which i use Safari and like its zoom feature as i am long sighted and it increases the size of the text at the click of a mouse .Try seamonkey and type in a search for say maplin electronics just type maplin and it takes you straight into the site itself chrome doesnt .Icould go on and on i recommend people try all the browsers maxthon etc there there on majorgeeks and use whatever your comfortable with . If internet explorer doesnt have decent alternatives then there would be no innovation .So who knows Adam might be saying chrome today but if firefox safari or internet explorer comes up better next month do we all switch to save how much of a second of a page change . Bottom line browser wars are all about advertising revenue or will be in the end . Each to there own . Good article though but better aimed at the developers of the different browsers . Personslly i havent yet found a browser that fits all my needs.Cheers
