    I did a search here on google chrome and couldn't find anything.

    How does Chrome match-up to Firefox?

    It's significantly faster than Firefox. I like it quite a bit, though Firefox is more feature-rich and expandable.

    I use it the majority of the time now that it's come out in beta for OS X. I generally only use FireFox when I need to use the FTP client or the Web Developer plugins.

    What didn't you like about it? I don't want to argue, don't worry. Genuinely curious.

    I could never stand firefox and the rabid uberfans it had (almost as bad as mac owners)



    So finally I moved from IE to Chrome and love it.

    I wonder if Google saves your entire internet activity indefinitely like they do when you use their search?

    I've been using Chrome on all of our computers for more than a year. No frills, but faster than IE.

    In all fairness, though, I've not tried Firefox.

    I'm torn...I'm all in favor of using a superior product. On the other hand, I am starting to dislike Google as a company and hesitant to give them more of my business. I guess I should just give Chrome a try and decide if it's worth dumping my principles. :supergrin:

    Google is known for their data mining, but you know their motto:

    "Don't Be EVIL"

    Right.
