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.

About speed, I'll give you my rates at Bubble Bobble at:
http://benfirshman.com/projects/jsnes/
Firefox 4 Beta 6: 15 FPS. Chromium 6: 60 FPS. Opera: 10.62: 60 FPS.

About features, I think browser market share trends are a strong indicator of features demand/satisfaction. In this field, Chrome is growing exponentially while Firefox has converged at 25%. This tells me that, compared with Chrome, Firefox has no more features relevant to the average user.

Firefox 4 will still be slower than Chrome for sunspider and v8bench, and has not more relevant features for the average user than Chrome. Which is what I was trying to communicate with the first message.
