I honestly have to say the awards go to mozilla, because of thousands of add ons and tor. Google chrome is honestly the best for downloading mozilla.

Since some years Mozilla Firefox, in old times Internet Explorer and Chrome don't like.

You know that there's an on-demand Tor routing plugin for Google Chrome called Cupcake don't you?

I used to enjoy Mozilla for more features, however Chrome has caught up well, it's also faster, i've also stopped using pretty much anything beyond the bare basics so I don't need mozilla slowing me down, Chrome's minimalist design is nicer.

Chrome may have a more simplistic design and be faster, but just look at the Processes tab in the Task Manager. Every single add-on uses a different Chrome process, so Firefox isn't the only one using loads of memory wink.gif I still use Chrome anyway tounge.gif

Both stock browsers feel the same to me. At college I'll use Chrome, while at home I'll use Nightly 64 which is based on Firefox. I have Chrome installed too at home because some browser based games like Warface only like Chrome. IE is for when family use the computer.

I meant slowing down browsing, Chrome loads pages faster.

I didn't know Chrome used more memory though, interesting information to have.

I used to use Firefox all the time. Then I discovered Chrome and I haven't looked back since. I can't remember the last time I used IE for something other than downloading other browsers.

I'm not great with internet browsers, but I have a sneaking suspicion that part of that might be because Nightly is a beta release made for testing.

e: f*ck me, I'm making assumptions. I prefer Firefox for the add-ons that are harder to find with chrome, and that's about it really. I've also taken a disliking to google lately, they're becoming too something, so I've been doing my best to avoid their services when I can. Not doing too well. confused.gif

I didn't bother to try other browsers other than Internet Explorer until like two years ago I think. I used Firefox the first time back then, and I realized how much better it is. Someone told me to test Chrome since it's allegedly faster, and I started to use it around 3-4 months ago. It's definitely the best browser I have used so far. It loads pages a lot faster than Firefox and IE, and I like the simplistic design of it.

The only thing I like about Internet Explorer is that you could pin websites to your task bar. But the Cons outweigh the Pros any day so I just use Chrome. By far the fastest browser I have used. I've heard IE 10 improved and I gave it a shot but I getting the Blue Screen of Death. I heard it's not really designed for Windows 7, that may be why.

No, but I do for fun sometimes. GTAforums is a lot easier to browse on lynx than some other sites because it doesn't rely on images for navigation. Instead of using a mouse you use the arrow keys and basically tab around the page to get around, it's not at all hard to use.

I use Firefox, but if for some reason you like Metro, which I hope you don't, you can try Poseidon or Omicron.

Chrome is a piece of sh*t. It uses Aero-alike theme regardless of you PC's settings, has hardly understandable UI, and worst of all, Google can track you with this waaay more than Firefox

Right, that's why it's the fastest growing mainstream browser in the world.

With chrome they can track virtually everything, even addresses you didn't even want to connect to. However I estimate they can track 80% what you do on other browsers too. There are a lot of sites that connect to google for apis, fonts, captcha's and they usually have google's syndication scripts on them as well (including gtaf).

Anyway I prefer firefox because of it's customisability. I can change the look of the browser as I wish and there are many plugins and extensions available. I can also easily do things as keeping the cache in RAM.

EDIT:
@sivispacem
It's the fastest growing browser because there are ads everywhere of chrome. I don't know how it's in other countries, but there even are chrome commercials on big Dutch television channels.

The lack of UI for Chrome is part of why it's so good, very bare-bones, very fast. Less interface to load up, making load times a lot faster, Not to mention you see more of the page you're trying to view.

Faster load times???!! Since when? Firefox has always been the same for me, if not faster. If you need something resource-lighter, you can use Seamonkey.
On the tracking part, there are various plugins for firefox, that allow tracker blocking, like gPrivacy and Ghostery. I've never seen those on Chrome (okay, maybe Ghostery) .
Plus I just hate Google.
And again, the Aero ripoff doesn't look well on XP, or even 7 with Classic theme.

EDIT: for Chrome likers, there was this SRWare Iron or something. Probably I should take a deeper look into that.

I think overall Chrome is on par with Firefox, but I primarily use Firefox. The interface on Chrome is too simplistic for my taste, even the settings menu doesn't offer much. It doesn't seem to freeze as much as Firefox, though I have had some bad experiences with it. I guess I'm so used to Firefox I won't give it up unless it becomes really crappy.

Since forever. Chrome has consistently had the fastest rendering times of the major browsers. It's also much resource-lighter than Firefox.

Sorry but by what measure is Seamonkey lighter than Chrome? It's a continuation of the Mozilla Application Suite, which is more resource-intensive than Chromium. It adds various elements as part of the package- proprietary browser-based email and news feeds, which are both resource intensive, and as far as I can tell is more feature-rich than both Firefox and Chrome. So could you please quantify how on earth it can use less resources given the fact the source code on which it is based uses more? You've clearly got no idea what you're on about.

There are numerous plugins that perform the same role on Chrome. Plus Chrome has the Cupcake implementation of Tor which, unlike the Firefox 17-based Tor browser, wasn't subject to a zero-day exploit recently which compromised the entire basis of the anonymity network utilising the Firefox-based browser.

Ahh, now we come down to your real issue. If you'd just said "I prefer Firefox because I hate Google", instead of making up loads of utter bullsh*t to try and substantiate a point that isn't factually true, then that would be fine. Stupid, but fine.

Well, that was obviously a screw up of Mozilla. However the tor browser bundle contains noscript, which blocks the exploit. Also as mentioned earlier, Chrome sends all the sites you visit to Google by default. And since Google helped with prism and the browser is proprietary software there's no way you can say that Chrome does a better job at keeping you anonymous than the tor browser bundle.
