    Firefox is the best browser around. I use ot for both browsing and web work. It offers many addon’s, extensions, plugin’s and themes. I use many of them including the web developer tools. There are very few scripts that don’t work in Firefox also unlike IE which I feel has missed the boat. I like Google Chrome, it’s light but doesn’t do much. ID just sucks!!!

  • Hi John

    I haven’t checked out the newer browsers (like Chrome) but I have observed that Firefox does not display tables or selected page formatting very well, and I have used tables extensively in the sections I maintain. This chart looks impressive, but when you’re talking about the difference between 300 and 600 milliseconds (3 tenths vs. 6 tenths of one second) I don’t think the micro-increase in speed is worth the tradeoff for loss of control over graphic or formatting (layout) presentation.

  • I have been using Chrome a lot recently and, although the speed differences may look small they are definitely noticeable. It just feels snappier and also starts much more quickly than Firefox. Chrome also supports extensions and themes and just makes Firefox look a bit old and tired. Unfortunately, Chrome does not support toolbars and so, one of my favorite extensions, Stumbleupon, has an unusable interface in Chrome. I’m afraid I don’t notice any display problems with Firefox although some sites don’t seem to work properly.

  • I’ve recently started to use google chrome and I don’t think I like it as much as Firefox. It always takes time to adjust to new things.

  • I had no idea that there was such a difference in browsers. I am going to try Chrome first.
