    By "increasingly popular", I hope you mean "seeing users leave in droves to go back to their old browsers".

    What user-tracking nonsense is present in Chrome that isn't on every single website on the net already with Google Analytics?

    Does every website use Google Analytics, though?

    ...

    Still not gonna tempt me away from Firefox, I'm afraid. Although it does negate some of my dislikes of Chrome.

    Chrome versus Firefox is kinda like VI versus EMACS - One is just a web browser (or file editor), the other could be its own operating system, with all the add-ons and features installed.

    I like Chrome - then again, I also like programming with Notepad and the command prompt. Your Preferences May Vary.

    Any website with a competent administrator has some sort of analytics on it (most often Google as it's free, but there are a number of other services), and they all keep server logs.

    Aye, I know the first bit. It's good to be able to keep track of hits and so on. ;)

    Didn't realise the Google version was free, though. :)

    THis is going to end up like linux distros where there are an infinate number of flavors for those who prefer something different.

    This is a good thing

    This is good. I like Chrome, but I'm not willing to do my banking with it, and I'm not going to keep multiple browsers around for different tasks. I'll have to play with Iron to see if it fits the bill (no pun intended).

    I use chrome for a few things. Mainly for the Uni website as it crashes Firefox.

    I've reverted back to Firefox 3 after giving Chrome a serious work out.

    Chrome has too many show stopping bugs (not too many niggling bugs though) and not enough features to streamline my internets.
