Well it's been a while so I thought I'd load up Google Chrome and see if it is truly faster than the others.

I can't see a difference, can you?

Firefox is the most customizable and IE is best for compatibility.

IMO Firefox is top dog but I kinda like the Google Chrome. (sometimes simple feels better)

I tried Opera long ago when it first came out but everything they had that was awesome, was cloned over to everyone else and didn't stand out anymore.

What is your current favorite?

Chrome has been much faster for me using multiple tabs. But I prefer Firefox for the customization ability. FF has been pissing me off lately though. Lot's of crashes, most of which are due to my installed add-ons.

I voted Firefox. I don't know if that counts as favorite; it's just what I use most. I think I actually like IE better. I should go back and try Seamonkey again since I used to like Mozilla suite so much.

Ya one of the reasons I tried Google was because mouse guestures no longer worked with 3.5.

I found today a glitch with Google Chrome where I entered a site and it kept opening new emails....
With IE8 and FF no such issue.

Oh well back to FF.

Firefox uses a lot more memory and CPU than chrome (at least on my computer), which is kind of annoying.

I use Chrome on my netbook because it is much less resource intensive than Firefox and because I don't need my favourite plug-ins ... mouse gestures are useless on a touchpad.

I use Firefox on my desktop because resources are not an issue and because mouse gestures are my very best friend in the whole wide internets.
