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.

I didn't switch

I didn't switch to chrome. There are several reasons for this. Firstly, I just used to firefox. I began to use much earlier than it became part of mozilla (it was called phoenix at that time if I remember correctly). Secondly, I didn't like chrome interface. I simplified my firefox interface too (small buttons on one toolbar with menu so it takes less space on top than chrome). It feels much more simple to me. What is more, it wasn't feature rich when I tried it several times (not just less number of plug-ins). The speed? I quite satisfied with firefox speed. It is not that slow on modern computers especially in Linux, BSDs. So I don't think that I'll switch in the near future.

I use a lot google web products (gmail, docs, picasaweb, picasa and so on) so ethically I am not against them but I just don't like their web browser (alternatively I used safari and opera more than it).
