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.

Why not:

Why not: Add-Ons. The amount of available Add-Ons and what you can actually do with an Add-On. You can pretty much change anything in Firefox. However, I wish Firefox had Chromes speed.

It will have, in a couple of months time.

If you want the speed of Chrome in Firefox right now, you have to run a pre-beta version, which is not recommended if you are also looking for stability.

I am running Firefox 4.0beta6 on Linux now. It is very stable (no crashes yet), more so than the 3.0 stable release and it is significantly faster than 3.6.

I don't use Chrome all that much even though I keep the latest version on my system. I don't really feel at home with it. I have been using Firefox right back to the early Phoenix 0.3 days when it competed for me with Galeon then the fastest and best browser available. So I'll be sticking with Firefox as my primary browser.
