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 use, IE, FF, Chrome and safari; I test compat and useability.

Chrome may be faster, but the others are catching up fast. and chromes bookmark handling is abysmal.

tho, I like things about chrome, the no sidebar, poor bookmark handling and GUID tracking are to much.

Yes, and for delicious users, the Firefox plugin is far, far superior to the Chrome versions I've found thus far. And nothing comes close to the flexibility of the Firefox TabMixPlus plugin for making tabs behave how *I* want them to behave!

That said, I do use Chrome quite a bit anyway. It "feels" faster and more elegant even on non-Javascript pages, and just gets out of the way of accessing web information and apps. I hope Firefox 4 can capture this user experience - that would be the best of both worlds!
