I used Firefox for years. It got too slow. Chrome is my browser. Missing a few bells and whistles, but I want browsing speed.

+1 on this. I've given up on Firefox - too bloated and slow.

I've been using Chrome (on Mac) for about a month or so. And while it's still in beta (hence, no extension support - you still see adds) just the fact that it's much cleaner and faster than Firefox is enough for me to keep using it.

Google Chrome here...no bing. As a general rant, it drives me nuts just looking at that name too. You can tell what they're trying to do there. One measure of success and ubiquity is when people turn the product name into a verb, as in, "Google it" or "Wiki it" or "xeorox" that. In the same spirit, they want us all to "bing it". It just seems so forced though...nice try Microsoft, but it ain't gonna happen.

I agree, although the Bing image search is pretty decent, IMHO.

Google chrome is definitely becoming a great browser, we've been installing it on all of our machines here and its completely changed how some of the people I work with browse the Internet (usually because they're machines are so old).

I've never used Bing image search.
How does it do with "wild naked tit ties on the beach"?

Bing is actually great for porn. You can roll over video and it shows you a preview.

But I still use google. It is just cleaner. Oh, and I love Chrome now.
