With firefox becoming more slow and more of a target I may be moving over to chrome. There is little holding me back from staying with firefox. I assume a lot of people have made the transition any good reason to stay with firefox anymore?

Tried Chrome, thought it was pretty good, but lack of a good ad blocker made me go back to Firefox. I also think when you add FasterFox to firefox it blows chrome away.

Firefox is still secure, btw. Heck most browsers if kept up-to-date and have decent security/cookies/script settings are secure.

Been using chrome for quite a while now.

Its adblocker works, but imo is flawed in the fact that it briefly pops up the ad before killing it. Not sure why it does that.

I occasionally miss my extensions, but not enough to put up with a slow-ass browser.

Yes, I've got fasterfox installed. Doesn't help.

While I always loved the speed of Chrome, I initially stuck with Firefox because of the extensions. As soon as Chrome allowed extensions, I've found I only use Firefox every once in a while when certain sites I manage websites for required Firefox or IE.

Just curious what you chose in the options? If you're still willing to give it a shot, go with "Turbo Charged" or manually change settings. I can notice a pretty big difference, tbh. I'm typing this right now on Firefox 4 beta, with faster fox.

You should use Chromium or SRWare Iron instead. Those do not feature Google's tracking spyware that tracks every website you manually enter.

Regarding the Chromium browser, I really like it's speed but I do not like it's lack of options. It's a very plain and simple browser without much configuration at all.
