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.

Perhaps, if one's not already being developed, Firefox could release a 'light' version of their browser with limited plugins/addons available, maximum performance upgrades - I'm sure everyday users don't require anything more than W3C standards [CSS+HTML4/5] and Javascript (as well as certain 'core' technologies such as Flash) for browsing websites.


Well if by chance you're using a mac then the answer is Camino. (Before anyone has a go at me: Yes, I know Camino isn't based on Firefox, but it is associated with the Mozilla Foundation, and does effectively act as a minimalist Firefox).

I've tried Camino, but it always seems to lag behind in terms of updates compared to Firefox.
