Im happy with comodo dragon browser
not really impressed with the rc. chrome is faster imo
I like IE9 and have had good luck with it with streaming movies. I've had too many crashes with Firefox. Chrome isn't too bad, I use that sometimes. Honestly most of the problems I've experience on the web were from Flash crashing video drivers, but I think that's been resolved.
Probably because I have plugins and tweaks done in FireFox to make it faster.
Chrome on average loads a page in 1.5s, while FireFox's current, of the same page, is 0.5s
Not really a huge deal, as it's still mostly instant, but I'm happy with FireFox, and it's faster...so why change to the new "hip" kid, Chrome. I feel like alot of people are using it just to try to feel like they're using the latest and greatest software.
To me, Chrome is like a iPhone.
Man, Firefox fans are like Apple fans; deny everything else.
But hey, at least I'm not trying to say Chrome is perfect and godly. It's just a damn browser with extensions and good speed, Firefox is very fast as well. Hell, even IE9 is very fast and has full hardware acceleration.
IE9 thread so I will speak freely !
I messed with FF when it was cool and leet to use it back in early 2000's, now its bloated and slow.
IE has less add ons which is bad on one hand but why its secure on the other hand as part of the core OS.
I miss some of the functions that no longer work in IE7PRO with IE9 (most worked with IE8) but the spell checker works and there is 1 or 2 alternatives for spell checking that I have checked out (I'm pretty sure IE7PRO spell checker did not work in the IE9 Beta but does on the RC).
IE9 works with nearly EVERY site I use as if a site does not work but worked in older IE you simply click the Compatibility Button up top, simple !
At the end of the say its not RTM yet and sites will update to work with it.
Im loving the IE9 RC except for one thing that kinda bothers, I cant delete my history.....not matter what I do, wipe the history in IE9 or CCleaner. I got to the url to type and everything pops up like I never cleared the history at all. Drives me nuts. Anyone else have this problem?
Sound like a glitch with some stuck files.
This old App will clean it all out no problem !
I used it a few times when before CCleaner was update to do it properly in Win7, in fact I bet you could run all the normal clean up methods and that old App would still find and clean some left over !
IE4.....IE5....IE6....IE7...... Even I was less excited about those releases... I'm so excited about IE9, that I almost care about it's official release...
Ironic that you call FF fans like Apple fans. That's exactly how I feel about Chrome fans, they're new "OMG< I HAVE TO HAVE THE LATEST iProduct"
Regardless, in my experience, FF has been faster to tests I conducted on my own, and that's all that matters.
Chrome is undoubtedly the faster browser, it looks cleaner, uses less resources than FF even a vanilla install. All these tweaks and add-ons and plug-ins you claim just bloat the browser down. My friend still uses FF and has tons of plugins and add-ons installed and his FF browser looks like a bombs hit it. Chrome has a much cleaner look to it. Plus in that recent test where a group of hackers tried to find vulnerabilities within the different browsers Chrome came on top beating all the other browsers.
Also you claim that Chrome is like Apple and its "i" products. Well I use Chrome as my main and only browser, and I f2king hate Apple and their "i" products. If you think Chrome is the same, then the same can be said for FF back when it was new too, maybe your just jealous that something better, faster, cleaner, and more secure has come along and now your the one "sad" kid without the "cool" browser any more
If my auntie had a penis she'd be my uncle.
One thing that i love about chrome is the bookmarks and saves them to your gmail, also fast!!
Cant wiat for IE 9 though.
brool story co
I will wait for Firefox 4 I dont trust IE
Yes, that's why there is iGoogle, iSearch, iGmail
Right, Google totally isn't doing the whole Apple thing.
That's just a HTML 5 computability test. Most of those tags aren't used anyway.
The HTML 5 standard is not final yet, that's why none of the browsers score a perfect 400.
So this score won't have an impact on your browsing experience!
So I installed the latest Chrome.
Takes more RAM than FireFox does, even with all the plugins. Also, it runs like...10 chromes?
I don't know how to explain it, but in my process manager, there are like 10 Chrome processes, Firefox only has one. It's also using way more of my CPU, random spikes of 30% CPU usage, Firefox only ever used 5% spikes.
I've never seen Chrome use more then 1% of my cpu.
I get like 5-6 chromes when surfing in processes, not that I care since its fast.
