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.

Font control

Firefox still has (more or less) absolute minimum font size control, but Chrome doesn't. It would not have mattered to me about 10 years ago, but now I prefer to be able to override font settings no matter what the page designer wanted. As a former newspaper editor, I know I'm missing out on overall design stuff, but hey, you gotta be able to read it.

Same goes for the browser: it doesn't matter if it loads faster if you have to zoom in before you can comfortably read the page.

Content is king, not design. So I'm still on Firefox, and still happy.

Right. Absolutely.

I can't read the Flyspeck 3 that so many websites want to force on me.

I really want Use My Fonts, with my own minimum size-control.
