I think its odd that people act like you have to pick one or the other. Browsers are just tools, just because one works great for a certain task doesn't mean you have to use it for everything.

I'm with Tavish, there are just certain things that don't run right in Chrome that has to run in Firefox. Worse yet is if you run into something that only work well in IE6

I make my gf use a different browser on my computer so she won't log me out of everything. It's so logical...

Still, I use FF if I have a choice and any other only if I have to.

i have officially given up on chrome. maybe i just ask for too much from my browser. i have all kinds of scripts working. chrome did well at first, but the more i added to it, the slower it got, and then it started crashing too. it didn't even come close to the load i put on firefox.

so i reinstalled firefox, stripped it down to the basics, and you know what ....

it's faster than chrome. :-]
