Really I use firefox, Chrome, IE8 and Opera.  I have reasons to use them all.  I realized this season there is a compatablity issue with my college and firefox - so over to IE8 I went.  Need a multi tool browser with weather updates on the frontend it's my firefox.  Want to speed dial websites, to be able to see if any site has had an update you haven't checked out - Opera is the one.  Now, don't get me wrong I would love to have one Icon to rule them all, but it's not going to happen in my life time.  There's to much coding out on the web to update to make one browser work for everything.  So we'll all have to continue to use every browser that is availible.

I use Chrome at work and at home.  funny... I'm currenly in FF.  haha.  normally I use Chrome exclusively, except for IE at work for Share Point and other IE only friendly sites.

 I loved Chrome in Beta, I hate the current release cause it seems slow and chunky, but I now started using the beta again and it seems quicker.

 I don't use extensions, I guess I'm not as much of a geek as I thought I am.  The ones I have used seemed to have some kind of "fall out".  slowed the browser down, browser crashed more frequently... Just figured it wasn't worth the hassle.

 Anyway I got nothing against FF, I just seem to like the speed (betas) & minimalistic layout of Chrome.

When FF 4.0 is released and it's using independent tab processes, Chrome is rendered pretty much pointless considering that's the only actual advantage Chrome had over FF to begin with.

Chrome is a little faster and easier to use too. Not that I use either chrome or ff.

Adblock is first and foremost, the rest I can live w/o:

Easy DragToGo

Gestures

Tab Mix Plus (I prefer new tabs to be adjacent to current on right side, and closing tab goes to left adjacent tab next)

Xmarks (or any other bookmark manager that stores online)

It depends on what add-ons show up.  If/when No-Script, AdBlock, and TabMixPlus (or equivelant programs) show up I'd give Chrome a shot at being my prefered browser.

What he said.

 Otherwise, its just an oversexed IE

I've been an Opera user since somewhere around version 1.2.  But, Opera became my secondary browser when I started depending on Mozilla and now Firefox extensions.  While I still love Opera, it just doesn't have as many tools and personal customizations as Firefox has. 

So, while Opera performance is stellar, its functionality just hasn't been able to keep up.  I can only imagine how Google Chrome will fair in the same market (and I see no hope for IE).

I use both.  I use Chrome for several intranet sites that I use daily at my job, and Firefox for all my normal Internet use which requires additional functionality provided by my extensions.

Still searching for a compelling reason to switch from Firefox. Not finding it.

Switched to Chrome the day it came out. Not looking back anytime soon.

If two of those Chrome extensions are NoScript and Adblock Plus, I'll try it out; otherwise, fuggedaboudit.
