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 switched to Epiphany on Gnome as my default browser a while ago but Firefox is a fantastic web development platform and I use it daily. I have chromium on my machine but I don't really use it for anything other than testing web pages. I haven't found a reason to switch yet. Firefox has all the extensions I could ever want or need and Epiphany is lightweight and well integrated into my DE. Firefox would have to screw up tremendously or Chrome/chromium would have to have a killer feature for me to switch and as of yet there is nothing Chrome/chromium does that I feel is a killer feature. The only benefits seem to be JS performance and tabs as a seperate process which are both short term advantages as FF is catching up in those areas.
