Is it any good?

Firefox is pissing me off and I want a change.

IE can get lost so its Chrome or nothing

Gents?

Chrome is fine Rob, very lightweight, loads quickly and can do just about anything the other two do. I like it.

I know this may be a bit unreasonable, but I tend to shy away from Google software installed on my computer. They have a well-deserved (and not so good) reputation for mining data any way they can. Having their software actually on my hard drive, and not restricted by things like the Java "sandbox" frankly makes me a tad nervous. This is of course not to say that Firefox isn't doing the same thing, just that I haven't heard such pervasive reports about it. Yet.

Is it?

Thanks for the tip - I will be uninstalling Google Chrome immediately in that case!

Any chance of "Pastry" letting you in on what brands of beer, cigarettes, bread etc are favoured by 'homosexuals' - so that we can all avoid them too?

The problem I have with Firefox is I cant access functions with my mouse on the top third of my screen. For example, right now I have a pm but I cant open it as when I place my mouse over my name, the cursor does not change from the arrow to the hand.

Its bloody annoying!

Apparently Google are discontinuing their search engine within Firefox. That really pisses me off as I am now forced to move to Chrome or navigate to Google´s homepage every time I want to search for something. Bastards :<_<:

Edit: It's not final yet, just speculation.

I have been getting a search engine called (i think but cant remember 100%) Babalon with Firefox for the last 3 weeks and that's another reason why Im looking else where. I'm running Google chrome on another computer and its looks good initially

Used chrome a while back but couldn't open attacents from hotmail directly, had to save them to disc first. Pissed me of eventually and reverted to IE. Not sure if it's still the same ?
