    Huzzah! I used Google Chrome for a while and loved it, it's great for multi-monitor systems. However, I got tired of all the ads and switched back to trusty Firefox with Adblock+. Can't wait to switch back.

    If I could have Mouse Gestures, and be able to open groups of bookmarks with a single click, I'd use Chrome full time ... at least at home.

    At work I'll stick with Opera. It gives me the flexibility turn off images at the click of an icon and also switch the Style to 'high contrast' which has the happy side-effect of making most web pages monochrome, therefore reducing the visibility of web pages at a distance... so it's less obvious to passing managers when I'm taking a break ;)

    If you like chrome but miss adblock, look up Privoxy. Its not a plugin but filters ads just the same. After using chrome+privoxy I hate going back to FF as its so slow and heavy.

    Disappointed with Chrome. Crashes all the time - after the millionth "aw, snap" message on YouTube or Google Maps or some PDF, I uninstalled with prejudice. Is fast, though. Also, don't like it's bookmarking system at all - not sure I've seen any browser that does it well, though even IE8 and Opera do it better. Agree with earlier poster about FF getting heavy...

    Amacieli, judging by your IE8, are you on windows 7? Try it on another OS, chrome on windows 7 is epic fail.
