Well, neither are that fast. If you use 64 bit, waterfox would probably be faster than both of them. Since its 64 bit, and these are 32 bit browsers

Why don't you look for reviews which do just these comparisons instead of wasting our time?

I got to like Chrome until I discovered how invasive it was. For a start it doesn't allow you to install it anywhere else than the User folders. Another thing is that you can not access the Tabs or other buttons in full page mode, a real pain!

I prefer Firefox because you can access everything in full page mode, and you can install it anywhere you like. The speed is controlled by the quality of your Broadband.

It makes me laugh when people go on about the speed of the browser when in most cases it is that broadband connection that is holding things up.

Firefox still leads for me, although just put Opera on the Tablet to have a play

I just stick with IE9 myself but http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/chrome-17-firefox-10-ubuntu,3129.html gives the windows award to FF with Chrome a very close 2nd. This article comes out every few months and the winner changes almost every time so whatever you chose it won't be the fastest at some point.To me though, I've used several and they all do the same job at much the same speed. I see no clear advantages for my personal usage so I no longer bother.

Chrome all the way. Clean, sharp and fast and best browser to code for

and best browser to code for
Considering even IE pretty much abides by the standards I don't know why you say that. You should be coding for the standards and not a particular browser.

I never said I only code for Chrome. I just said it's the best one to code for as it's the highest standards for CSS3 and HTML5. :)

IE is HORRIBLE to code for. But like you said it's industry standard. :)

Opera. The only two problems i have with it are a, in gmail the default text size is too small, and b,I still can't get it to play flash games. Other than than that it's really good.

Firefox rules by far.....Just see how long it takes ccleaner to clean out Chrome's cache & bits when you have closed it...That says it all for me.+1 for Waterfox also which is far faster as speedy said..

Disappointing to see a "Senior Member" being so blatantly negative, I know I come here because I trust feed back from those like Speedy over anything any other site tells me. Also you get suggestions like Speedy's about a browser I haven't heard of before. I guess there are those that are negative and could say "Why don't you look for reviews..." about just about anything .....anyway who lives in Plimmerton ? Ohh is that me being negative, sorry.

It is amazing the amount of crap that gets automatically installed in firefox & slows it down. I think that is the main reason Chrome is faster for most people

Using Chrome after reading a earlier thread from this forum. Finding it faster for multi-media heavy web sites. But bit lacking in certain extensions.
