2x faster than Firefox, and more simple.

What are your experiences?

:heartpump: Firefox.

The plug-ins and set-up just feel like home.

Never tried the google browser, however.

with firefox, I click and there is about a 5 second delay before the page loads, and it loads in sections.  Chrome, I click on a link and it takes about 1  second and the page loads in a blink as 1 whole section.
 
  I feel that google also utilizes window frame and UI much better.

Always Firefox. The variety and tools and add-ons cannot be beat.

I'm unimpressed with chrome, first I dont like the feel, the way it opens
tabs, how it handles downloads and it's speed is around the same as I get
with firefox

Tried it.

I thought it was incredibly boring, bland, and "plain" looking relative to firefox.  I didn't notice a significant speed differenece either.

I agree with the downloads part... that's the only downside with it I've encountered.

Chrome is DEFINITELY faster than Firefox.  I've tried it on many different computers, and it has always been about twice as fast if not more.

Main reason I DON'T use it: there were a couple sites that Chrome can't load a couple of sites - Firefox loads almost anything.

I also don't like the fashion in which the downloads are done, however I would use it anyways if it were just that.

Tried it in beta, was not impressed, went back to Firefox.
If it's significantly better I'd try it again..
My firefox is plenty fast though, I don't know what you people are talking about.
I'm running 2 windows and like 30 tabs open right now and pages are still loading instantly

i like chrome because it supports flash in 64 bit while firefox 64 bit has a problem loading a lot of videos. i also like the the commands that chrome has like double click control on your desktop to bring up a google search bar without opening the browser. overall though i prefer firefox and only use chrome on my netbook.

Chrome is WAY lighter.  Like you say, on a netbook, you would see a huge difference in the time it takes to open the program (the first time especially, not while it's stored in RAM).

Not the size of the program.  The speed.  Size does not equal speed.
