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 am running Firefox 4.0beta6 on Linux now. It is very stable (no crashes yet), more so than the 3.0 stable release and it is significantly faster than 3.6.

I don't use Chrome all that much even though I keep the latest version on my system. I don't really feel at home with it. I have been using Firefox right back to the early Phoenix 0.3 days when it competed for me with Galeon then the fastest and best browser available. So I'll be sticking with Firefox as my primary browser.

AFAIK, Firefox 4.0beta6 did not include Jaegermonkey. It has only the improvements to Tracemonkey.

Firefox 4.0b7pre includes Jaegermonkey, but that version is not yet likely to be stable.

So ... more speed still yet to come later for you. Enjoy.

:D
