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 did not switch to Chrome, I have it installed I sometimes use it.

But I came to the following conclusions:

- Chrome is more buggy then Firefox, even Firefox with lots of extensions. It has more problems rendering pages, as a webdeveloper I tend to notice it.

- I like the advantages of Chrome, tab-process-seperation and speed

- Yes, maybe I don't want to help Google, I do want to help Mozilla though. Just browsing with Firefox helps Mozilla. If ever, I would be using Chromium instead of Google Chrome.

I would love to see the advantages of Chrome to be added to Firefox. :-)

I do also think, competition is good, it keeps vendors/projects honest. Just look at the big effort the IEW developers are putting in right now.
