    I can do that too


    OT: Chrome because the UI is very minimalistic, and it's really fast on my computer, like blazing fast.

    Both of you are missing the point.

    First off, that image was taken after visiting MMO-Champion in Chrome (which is why the site rather than a Google search result is listed first).

    The address bar drop down menu is more polished in Firefox: more readable font color/size, more apparent text highlighting, better background object highlighting (not shown for Firefox), more address bar search results (6 on screen, 6 scrollable). Chrome address bar is full of Google search results rather than relevant history, paying homage to its Google roots.

    Chrome is a vehicle for Google revenue streams where as Firefox is developed solely as a browser.

    Only choose Chrome if compatibility issues and speed irritate you (Firefox has come a long way in this respect) or Google services and Android integration are very important.

    Long answer:

    Chrome is developed by Google with primary underlying goal of generating Google revenue via Google services, primarily Google search/advertisement which is why Google search results are shown first in the address bar drop down menu. The same reason is why Chrome works so well with other Google services (such as translation).

    Internet Explorer developed by Microsoft with two underlying goals: promotion of both Windows and Bing search (in competition with Google search).

    Of the three most popular browsers (Chrome, Firefox, and IE), Firefox is the only browser which is developed specifically as a browser, without competing underlying interests; this is why Firefox has such a great user interface. On the other hand, since Mozilla isn't a backed by a large company like Microsoft or Google so their funding isn't as robust which leads to slightly more issues with compatibility and slower speed. On the other hand, Firefox has come a long way with regards to compatibility issues, especially with Flash. Moreover, Firefox restores all tabs after a crash and even restores inputted content after a crash.

    Mozilla Waterfox mainly..... no idea why. Makes many tab browsing feel more responsive... the browser using 1.5gb ram and all.
    Chrome only for Battlelog.. (requireing 32 bit)

    Use both, Firefox as a main and Chrome as my work hub

    Prefer Firefox greatly for general browsing, and it works better as a program than Chrome imo
    Use Chrome for Gmail/Gdoc/Work YouTube/Gcalender, basically so I can log into two google accounts as the 'main' (certain systems don't work correctly with the switch user stuff)

    Biggest problem I have with Firefox, is that Facebook chat (the IM side bar part) causes it to snarl up after a few hours, but thats a problem with FB's awful coding rather than the browser, and its just less of a problem in Chrome because it just crashes the tab and lets that restart rather than the whole browser

    Chrome. I was a Firefox user for a long time, but Chrome is just too sleek and awesome, can't change from it, even if I tried to.

    I use IE10 because

    It's just as fast as the other browsers
    It's more secure than any other browsers(Look it up)
    It's included in Windows so you don't need to install anything else
    I don't like to use a browser made by an advertising company

    chrome ... when i switched to chrome IE was really slow and firefox was just the browser EVERYONE used ... i wanted to try something different.
    now i'm using chrome and i love it, dunno why ... the layout is nice, it is fast and everything works perfect.
    My signature was too big, so now I use this one.

    Where do I look it up? Usually it's the person claiming something that provides the evidence.

    Microsoft (IE) has no advertising?

    It's installing during OS installation so it's probably as much installation time as installing Chrome, FF etc.

    Compared to Chrome I'm missing profiles, synchronization, "paste and go", more options for apps/customization. They did make AddBlock compatible with IE so I guess that's a start . I don't really feel less or more secure than most other browser.

    Same here. Nothing to add.

    So, in short: the internet.

    Rockmelt, until they bloody stopped allowing it to work. Loved the side chat bar and how quick it was.

    Now Im on Chrome and it feels clunky as buggery and has stuffed up more in the last month than Rockmelt ever did.

    Same reason for me, plus Firefox has lots and lots of addons.

    Firefox just for the addons, nothing else keeps me using it. I'd switch to chrome if i had all my addons, or most of them.

    Chrome and IE 10. I use IE 10 only if for some reason Chrome doesn't wanna load a website or I need to have 10+ tabs opened at the same time, which Chrome sucks at (so does Firefox).

    Firefox for most stuff simply because of add-on support, Chrome for the rest.
