Well with a month gone by with no new updates, and for some reason chrome still goes slower than firefox I am going back. I have officially made firefox my defualt again.

-Opening and closing tabs goes sluggish
-Spell checker stinks
-Scroll wheel!
-No Extensions or add ons
-I just got Ant toolbar for Firefox and can now download and save flash videos lightning fast
-Also it just seems to work better

Im surprised chrome has yet to see a new update yet.

Wow...you just got Firefox? Welcome to Heaven :)

Chrome...is too beta for me. I recommend, if you want something Chrome-ish, Minefield. Is the beta version of the next Firefox, and apparently is 10% faster than Chrome.

:lol: They forced me too, and I'm glad. Chrome is meh. I don't like the layout, it's too simple. I love Firefox now, and hate IE7 [never thought I'd say that] :thumbup:

Wow.... chrome is really fast.
I just got it a couple seconds ago, and it's working fine for me (scrolling is fine). And it's freaking fast.

In my opinion, it isn't worth, yet. Still, it holds much potential-

I can't really say the differences between IE7 and Firefox...as I have used Firefox for the last two years, and no IE.

Yeah... I can't believe I used to use IE. Now I use chrome and firefox.

It's true, Chrome doesn't quite match up with FF yet b/c of addons and a few remaining glitches. But it's good when I'm just surfing and like to get my web pages fast :)

For some reason when I use google chrome I can't type a new message in hotmail - I can go to the 'compose mail' page, but it won't let me type...
Oh and on this site if I press the center scroll wheel on my mouse to open a page in a new tab, for some reason the current tab I'm on also switches to that page. It doesn't happen on any other site so far, though... :S
