Todays World of Web Browsing
 
Fairly decent write up on three major browsers/their updated versions. For those wondering where the game is now, apparently things are evening out much more than some would expect.

I'm enjoying FF 4 at the moment. However, on a couple of my computers it seems to take longer to load up...not sure why.

switched to chrome a couple years ago after using firefox for the longest time and havent looked back since. Firefox had some plug-ins and extensions I liked, but chrome has some equals and the speed and simplicity has just won me over.

I've finally gotten used to chrome, I still use IE though for school my school message board though since it's not supported by chrome.

I recently saw a test where IE9 was more power efficient than the major browsers out there. I was a Firefox user for many years until Chrome came out. I just love it's simplicity, speed, and it doesn't take up much screen area.

Firefox 4 is almost visually identical to Chrome now. i stick with firefox for the same reason i stick to Android, spyders, etc: tweakability. the only thing i dont like is the possible placements of the bookmarks button.

Re: Todays World of Web Browsing
 
I've stuck with FF from the beginning and have grown dependent and certain add-ons (by now I'm sure Chrome has some sort of an answer to). Brand loyalty I suppose. Anyway, when I first got I was taken aback for an hour or so by the new sleeker layout akin to Chrome's. It has since grown on me (aside from the horrendous bookmark placements). It was noticeably peppier when I first got it, but now it feels the same. Dunno if it's because **** sucks or me taking it as normal now.

Anyway, I am a personal Firefox user who has always acknowledged other options and their respective strengths.

yeah, load times mean nothing to me when i have 1.5mbps internet :( and the big thing that deters me from chrome is lack of proper Adblock and NoScript support.

I moved back to FF4 after using Chrome since its introduction. Haven't looked back since discovering the side tab extension.

Eh, Firefox has been uber glitchy for me as of late, and it happens quite often. But it may just be my computers.

Anyways, it doesn't surprise me that things are evening out at all, really. After all, we have managed to weed out Netscape Navigator and the likes.
