I know.

Too little too late on Mozilla's part tho'. I've switched to Chrome and have managed to find addon replacements from my old Firefox profile so really - why change back? Chrome installs updates automatically in the background which includes Adobe's Flash player & it offers syncing tools...

Chrome offers the fastest startup speed & browser rendering while Firefox still lags if you have addons, so...I did try the first RC, but couldn't turn from Chrome.

But, hey...I tried.

Maybe if I got a SSD...

Same. I've turned to Chrome. I love how you can sync your profile and log into another computer with chrome and all of my addons/themes/bookmarks***/etc come with me. But I was impressed with IE9's speed so I'll have to try Firefox 4. Thanks

I'm liking Firefox 4, and will happily stick with it! At least it's not wandering around in zombie-beta land. :lol:

Word on the street is that Google Chrome BETA 11 will have speech-to-text support as well as gpu accelerated 3D CSS :o.

IE is like the Umbrella Corp.
Chrome is mass zombies.
Firefail is like.....uhh....a fox?

Theres been about 276 Resident Evils and the zombies are still winning lol.

I like firefox. Been using it for a long time when I got tired of IE's yuckiness. I just never found any reason or inclination to try chrome. I don't know how fast or slow any of the different browser load, but if it's only by a few milliseconds, I'm not going to notice anyway.

Chrome:

* speech-to-text support (useful for what?) BTW, Windows Vista and 7 already have built-in speech-to-text support...
* GPU accelerated 3D CSS (now this actually holds some water)
