    Most of you use Chrome as a browser, and good news arrives as Google implemented a serious performance enhancement. Starting with revision 91 you'll be able to benefit from an increase of 23 percent ...

    Great stuff, looking forward to the changes getting applied across the board to all other Chromium-based projects.

    I think Chrome could be even snappier, if it would be not so busy collect so much data and invade one's browsing habits.
    But hey, that's wishful thinking.

    No thank you. Firefox forever.
    Chrome/Chromium is a plague that killed almost all alternatives outside of Firefox and its forks.

    Wrong thread buddy.

    I'm still happily sticking to Firefox, although I also use Edge for some very specific stuff.

    Maybe I'm little bit paranoid but hate google spying on me. Been using Brave browser and it's great.

    Agree, although I still use Vivaldi (after ditching Opera some years ago), I use Firefox in a daily basis due to the lack of other options

    Chrome is fast....I like the bookmark bar too.

    I just noticed a reading list tab in the top-right corner?...new?

    I've never been a fan of Chrome to be honest.
    However, I like their experimental features most.

    The fact that I can use a DCI-P3 profile for my wide gamut monitor is really great, basically the only way to simulate the same colors I see on my macbook pro (for web production purposes).

    Also the HDR simulation is interesting, running youtube HDR videos on my non HDR monitor.

    Then use Chromium.

    De-googled Chromium could show Chrome some tricks, y'all know?

    I use a lot of not mainstream browsers for different purposes.
    And some even other web protocols, Gopher or Gemini.
    Not everyone and everything is https and JavaScript and images ...plain text still is used to show information, in the fastest way possible without any bloat.

    Thanks Chrome, just 2 days that I switched to Edge. We should just end this monopoly before it's too late

    I've tried Chrome as a browser a number of times and within days, sometimes hours I've experienced massive issues with the most basic use... actual browsing. In the past I've spent hours and days trying all sorts of updates and plugins to 'fix' issues that shouldn't be issues and every time I've reverted back to FF.
    While FF isn't perfect by all means, for me, it just works 99% of the time and does what I need and want it to.

    While better performance is always welcome I, as one of the earlier adopters of Chrome, would prefer if Google spent some time and effort to not continuously worsen the UI.
    Still on Chrome on my desktop but I finally got annoyed enough to move to Firefox on my Android phone. It wasn't even the lack of ad-blockers or such, just the inability to stop tab grouping with the newer updates that made browsing unbearable.
