I recently updated to Firefox3 and have had some serious lag and other issues as well. So I went back to using 2 and everything has been working fine, but my understanding is that I won't be able to use it come December.

 

Should I switch to Google Chrome?

 

feedback anyone?

I downloaded chrome earlier today and I have to say that is a pretty good browser. Once the full version comes out, I will probably switch over to that, but until then I am gonna stick with FF3.

I'm diggin' it... the forums alone is loading faster with this browser... all the banners and such.

 

I'll mess around with it for a bit.

I downloaded chrome yesterday and it is great because it is fast and doesnt seem as cluttered. There is a lot of error messages when viewing flash files though i did notice but it is still in its beta stage. so for now i still stick with firefox 2. I like how ff2 works better than ff3. just my opinion.

im dling it now. i just got firefox a couple days ago.

 

i never really thought much of what browser i used. IE works fine and i didnt know there was much of a difference. everyone says that firefox is faster but i really dont notice a difference. but the reason i got firefox is because my friend just showed me all the cool add ons and stuff. like the cooliris thing, you can scroll though images like how it is on the iphone. theres a lot of other cool stuff too.

MF3 and Chrome are obvious winners of the fashion contest :P

if anybody knows how to customize chrome, pl0x tell me :P

and if you can have multiple tabs open on startup for mf3, pl0x tell me that too :P

 

EDIT:

 

rofl! IE8 beta has just come out, it has ability to use addons, but is still slow liek ie7 :/ (i think it just came out :/)

EDIT AGAIN:

 

wow, IE8 is the exact same as IE7 but with a bookmarks toolbar, and its SLOWER! (for me atleast)

i have to wait a minute for the page to load before i can scroll down and read posts :angry:

 

if you love IE7 and wont take MF3 or GC a chance, dont upgrade to IE8 unless you REALLY want a bookmarks toolbar and addons.

Yea, Firefox 3 can have multiple start up pages. I personally like Chrome, BUT the scrolling is screwed :\

Have the pages that you want to have as start pages open. Then go to the place where you usually change your start page. And click "Use current pages" I believe :P
