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.

No real power user would use just one browser ;-)

Anyway, I switched fairly recently to Chrome as my day-to-day browser because it's fast and because it has the extensions I need (basically: adblock). It also has a lot of interface niceties I like (like being able to close a lot of tabs in succession without the close buttons jumping around).

As a web developer though, I still do most of my development in Firefox with Firebug. Chrome's dev tools are much improved, but still aren't nearly as good as Firefox+Firebug.

Of course, after the bulk of the development is done, I start firing up the site in everything else and polish it up...but while I'm developing, I'm switching back and forth between code and Firefox.
