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.

RE: I switched, then switched back

Right on. Until Chrome has all the extensions I use on Firefox, I won't use it. The same can be said for a lot of power users (who tend to use a lot of extensions). We probably use overlapping but mostly different sets of extensions, so Chrome will really only win power users when it supports most extensions that power users use... which won't be happening any time soon, if ever.

Chrome vs. Firefox is like Macintosh vs. Linux: One of them has precisely what the average person wants most of the time, the other has precisely what I want (or I can change it till it does). Adequately average (and fast/easy) may be good enough for a lot of people but for those with exacting requirements the only killer feature is control.
