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.

Tried Chrome and switched.

I've been a long term Firefox fan and user, still am sometimes but a couple of months ago I tried Chrome because I hated how bloated and sluggish firefox became. Long startup delay's, crashes etc.

I tried Chrome for fun a couple of times but then I noticed I began to start it as my default browser. The only time when I would start Firefox is when I wanted to browse videosites, because Firefox Adblock Plus can't still be beaten by Chrome (Or should I say Adthwart can't beat it yet).

Couple of weeks ago I bought a brand new Corei7 PC and told myself I would switch back to firefox but I didn't. It took 1 day before I installed Chrome with it and now I'm only using that. I think not even Firefox 4 can make me switch back, although we'll see about that later.

So yeah I really love Chrome but I used Firefox for years so I won't forget about that browser either.
