I used Firefox for years, but I prefer Chrome now. When Chrome first came out, I didn't like it because there weren't as many mods for it, but there are enough now that it's just fine.

Feels faster, though I can't say for sure. Definitely feels cleaner. I just prefer it I guess.

I was just about to make a thread about this. I use Firefox currently because I'm paranoid. :lol: I just don't like the idea of Google having all of my information. I'm under the impression that they log all your information and input. I use add-ons like No-Script and Ad-Block, but I'm pretty sure those are on Chrome now. The only add-on that's NOT on Chrome that I love is Cocoon. I love the sense of security from that.

My friend told me that with a google account, it can save your Chrome settings, so that if you ever reformat, you can reload them using your account. :eek:

Don't know how true that is.. but I'm always afraid of Google having hold of my information.

Firefox is awesome, but if you use any google services chrome works amazing with them (obviously).  Scripts work natively in chrome so some of the apps you needed in firefox you wont even need. 

The biggest draw back with chrome is that I haven't found an app that can control a media player.  but that stuff about all your bookmarks being backed up online is true, i just did that the other day.

This, but I still use Firefox out of habit. I used Chrome when it first came out but went back to Firefox because of the addons and mods and just never tried Chrome again. Now Chrome has caught up in those terms. Firefox is great, but then so is Chrome. I just don't wanna bother making the switch because I honestly don't feel Chrome is much better and I don't want to get used to the new browser.

Pretty much as long as you're not using IE you're good to go. :P

there are still some essential addons that are not up to the same caliber on chrome as they are on firefox. i simply cannot live without some of these.

the biggest one i can't live without is Pentadactyl. it makes firefox act like the vim text editor. there are alternatives on chrome (like vrome) but they are a far cry from the functionality of Pentadactyl.

Firefox was awesome when it first came out and then got really crappy around version 2 up till 3.x. Since the 4.0 release it has improved immensely. chrome is not that much faster anymore.

I've not tried chome for quite a while, but when it was much younger, I was not impressed.  It reminded me of the netscape days with clunky icons.  (In other words, I thought it looked ugly.)

Recently, I avoid chrome because Google seems to have made deals with everybody on the planet to include chrome in the download.  Need acroread from Adobe?  Guess what, if you aren't careful, you get Chome as well.  Probably not a big deal to you guys with fast internet, but when you live in the third world where dialup seems fast, waiting a few hours for Chome to download, when you really don't need it or want it, is a pisser.  When Google stops trying to force feed me their new browser, then I will take a look at it again.  Until then, firefox works just fine.

pretty much agree with all of this.

additionally, there is the philosophical argument about closed vs open source software. i generally do not use closed software. of course there is always Chromium but the above argument about it being clunky still applies.

I used to use Firefox, but it started to feel too heavy for an internet browser for me, so I switched over to Chrome. It's really light and powerful, and runs smoother.

When chrome was beta I described it to my clients and a startled gazelle :smile:It ran fast as lightning but tripped at hurdles! 

I read an interview with the chrome dev team at google and it was basically designed from the ground up to have speed as its number one priority, they wanted it not bogged down with addons :smile:

On that note its more stable now but still does not work for everything and I find it more responsive but I must admin I still fall back to firefox for half a dozen sites due to addons (like pinching streams) or compatibility. 

For instance I have not been on shroomery almost all year but I used to have to have firefox open to upload pics as it would not work in chrome.

Basically I use chrome with like zero addons, only the built-in bookmark sync setup for a quick, stable, general browser and fall back to firefox for the addons etc as its a bit slower but more compatible :laugh:

Chrome is faster than firefox on my PC...might just be me.  I also like the simplicity.

Flash crashes every once in a while in Chrome, however.  Not sure why..maybe I have too many tabs with flash open during those time?

I use internet explorer. I have never had any real issue with it so don't see a reason to install any third party browsers.

Majority of people say internet explorer is buggy. I ask them, what is buggy about it? They usually come back with some pretty piss poor answers.

Depends of or definition of of buggy I guess...

In my experience the inefficient clunky code that hogs memory and (ignoring the obvious targeting of M$) is exploited seems balanced by the fact that many software development companies first engaging in web-based applications jumped on the Microsoft bandwagon.

This means lots of sites/apps out that seem only to work on IE correctly due to propriety code in them written specifically for IE browsers.  Why you would choose that I don't know, seems to me the main benefit of web tech is inter-operable, cross-platform delivery... 

So on one hand it seems more compatible but try running a dozen windows with up to 10-20 tabs in each in IE and see what happens to your reliability and free system memory...  IE is good but in my experience does not scale well with high-end multitasking (such as when I am doing research) and its noticeably slower to me just generally browsing.

speaking of firefox, if you use a proxy server, and hack into a huge major corporation, the corporation doesn't have your proxy server right? but they have records of the i.p. transaction, and can probably go retrieve records at time of interaction at the proxy server right?? that proxy will have your public i.p. address for sure right?

am I wrong about all this? but these days the wpa keys cancel all that out anyway right??

The point to meditating is to feel the same when you are meditation as when you aren't. To be balanced inside and out. Difficult to do when being aware of breath and sensation. However, not impossible. Feeling ok about yourself at all times seems to be a great difficult skill to master. The concept so simple a snail could understand it. To practice it some of the greatest Albert Einstein type minds couldn't master it.

It's like the trick to human problems is to be even more human. Not less human but as human as possible, only understanding human nature.

Understanding subtleties is hard. What is subtle? Subtle is powerful. Atoms are subtle. Atoms make up everything we are. Understanding subtleties is one of the hardest parts of life.

Chrome for me, though the new version of Firefox is actually pretty good now that they fixed most of the memory issues Firefox is known for.  However, it loads pages slower for me than Chrome and Firefox still hasn't separated each tab into its own process.

as far as I know Chromium and SRware Iron are both freeware alternatives to chrome that offer the same browser, minus the spying on you all the time.

But people like being spied on. That's why I have a facebook account.

FYI: Adverts fuck me off. The only time I scream "FUCK OFF" is when I get someone ringing me up to find it's an advert on "this is an urgent message regarding your payment protection insurance."

Not really sure what you mean.  I think you might have it the wrong way around...

If you are using a proxy its effectively like a tunneling service.  When you access info via that proxy the other end will see the IP's etc in the packet headers as that of the proxy and send it back.

Once the proxy gets this is forwards it back to you.  So yeh the records on the proxy will show the content you have access (if its logged) and the 'corporation' will have records of things being accessed by the proxy server.  SO basically the proxy is acting on behalf of you, and doing the connection request etc for you.  Hence the name 'proxy' just like someone legally acting on your behalf if you ill etc.

This is in contrast the to NAT (network address translation) you might have on a home router where you (your computer) still make the connections etc but the NAT just updates the addresses/ports as requests transverse the link.

Also keep in mind that not all proxy servers are anonymous, its often assumed but not a definite.
