I actually like firefox in Linux better then the Windows version.


If it really is faster than Firefox, and it is just as functional as IE7, I won't need much more convincing to switch.

I prefer firefox in linux as well .. much more stable and less of a memory hog.

Chrome functions as a 'just a browser'. They haven't added any new functionality and in that sense I completely agree with you .. why change to something new if there are no new features.

However, the architecture and design of the browser leads me to believe (I can't know because they don't have a linux version yet) that Chrome will drastically outperform current browsers within a couple of iterations. As they work out the bugs, this browser should fly and it should be much more robust.

Only time will tell .. I'm enjoying reading the comments in this thread but i'm also a bit envious of those who are able to put the browser to the test.

Google .. hurry up and finish your linux port already!

I'll give it a shot.


I love it! I just feel it needs Adblock Plus and StumbleUpon.

I only use it for internet radio. That way, I keep that window on a seperate browser to avoid opening it by mistake all the time. I usually have at least 10 Firefox or IE windows open at a time.

Anyone tried Opera 10? It's insanely fast and with a great design. It has all of the functionality you'll ever need without having to install extensions.

First, you resurrected a thread that was dormant for a year.

Then you posted in this zombie thread to discuss a different browser .. for which a new topic has already been started.

Please review the rules for this forum so I don't have to lock any more threads.
