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.

makes extension developers dependent on Google to enable things like CS Lite, NoScript, UserAgent Switcher, Video DownloadHelper, an AdBlock Plus that prevents the ads from being loaded in the first place, etc


There is now adequate but not complete support in Chrome for "An Adblock Plus that does not download ads", but AFAIK there is no support in Chrome for, and hence no equivalent to, Video DownloadHelper.

Vim-style /-triggered find-as-you-type


This is a great feature of Firefox that I also enjoy in KDE's Okular (a PDF viewer). It beats the hell out of typing "Ctrl-f" leading to a dialog box.
