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.

Firefox still my preferred browser

The 'power user' term gets tossed around a lot when Google Chrome is mentioned but personally I find Chrome too locked down. Firefox has about:config and Opera has opera:config -- both will let me tweak any number of things Chrome won't. Also, Firefox's huge add-on environment is hard to compete with. I've read a number of references that Chrome's add-on farm is growing and growing but the last time I checked it was growing mostly for Windows. I run Linux, Windows, and OS X systems where I rarely run into add-on situations for all three, with Chrome the majority of add-ons are Windows only.
