At least you have the comfort of knowing that IE users are stupid
Chorme is STABLE if one page hangs, only that tab is affected. Firefox on the other hand, if one page hangs entire browser needs restart. However, chorme lacks:
- no print preview
- no work offline
- no turn off update (especially v12, GoogleUpdate.exe starts with your OS, can't block it nor prevent it loading, even after uninstall google update folder & content still exist)
- no NoSquint equivalent, NoSquint segment page zoom individually, eg. If i zoom up bit-tech.com to 120% all pages / tab from bit-tech.com is 120%, while others tabs i open eg. cnn.com is not effected. Default 100% 120% 144% too big a jump & affect all pages.
- Download speed indicator also not honest, speed shown are always higher than what they actually is. Firefox get it right though, maybe its the snapshot period they take.
- no Firebug equivalent, "Inspect Element" not enough details.
- no Noscript equivalent, extensions like adblock prevents signing into websites even after removing it.
I do love the speed of chrome but I'm just so used to firefox that I don't want to change ...yet
I do have all the browsers installed, though (ie,chrome,firefox, opera)
Switching to G+ has finally pushed me to Chrome. All the good G+ extensions are only on Chrome, along with a lot of great Google-made extensions for various products. For someone who spends half their time on Google services anyway, it makes sense (I even use Google Reader to skim the articles here before I come)
Can't say I really miss Firefox much, but I generally keep a clean OS and a clean browser, so I didn't have that many FF add ons to miss. If you are a FF addon whore, switching may be more difficult.
I tried putting Chrome on my work pc, but sadly none of my clients web sites and applications will work on Chrome (half don't actually work on FF either, but I use IE Tab to view them from within FF)
modify headers, downthemall, better adblock, better noscript, more customisable, open source, and a few other minor reasons all keep me on firefox. I tried chrome out and really dont get the love.
trying chrome right now and I cringe about once every minute because of features that I would like to use but don't exist (in chrome)
I use chrome on my slow laptop, its a bit faster, but on my main PC its Firefox all the way.
Really? is there any need for that?
IE9 is an excellent browser. I use Chrome myself.
i get it now, hadn't seen that report, i am not adverse to change, but i do have preferences, was the iq test a reliable one, many that are done online are not.
Also related; interesting browser upgrade paths:
In Firefox more users with 3.6 than 4.0. No idea why.
According to my stat logs only 11% of my website visitors in 2011 are using Internet Explorer. IE hasn't been the majority browser to my site since 2006. I seriously doubt the accuracy of the data in this article and was wondering if bit-tech can back it up with their own web stat data? It is just too big of a discrepancy to easily explain away.
I've used opera at home for years and I use chrome in work. Opera has been pissing me off since version 10 though. Still sticking with it but it's getting harder.
Found Chrome runs and loads so much quicker than FF and IE, so have stuck with it. No probs since
What has been annoying you with opera?
Found it started crashing for a while, but doesn't any longer, tis running perfectly
Every single UI change starting with the settings moving in the top left hand corner to the latest speed-dial. I dislike every single one of them. Especially the latest one which removed the dropdown box in the URL bar by default. Easily fixed after 10 mins in the forums.
Also flash used to crash it constantly on some sites, like PC gamer but that has long been cured.
Chrome rules, sync is awesome.
Yep. Sync is awesome, I use it on Firefox.
