Firefox or Chrome

Recommended Posts

Today I switched browsers from Firefox to Chrome. Which one should I use. What are the recommendations for the browser I should have?

Thanks,

Comprev

I would go with Firefox, but using Script blocker addon. Haven't gotten any issues since I started using those two.

For me, between the two, the choice would be Firefox, hands down.

I primarily use Opera on my machine, though.

I love Chrome, but Firefox wins me over with NoScript and AdBlock.

Opera is still good though. :blink:

I personally use Firefox (Google keeps too much information for my liking), and the add-ons are more than awesome.

A lot of my friends use Chrome and in my experience, it performs well.

I personally don't like Chrome because of Google. SRWare Iron is a good chromium based replacement. :blink: Firefox and Opera are also good choices. :blink:

Firefox here. Using Firefox 4 x64 nightly in fact.

Chrome, looked at once, never again. Especially after that huge EULA mess they had with how if you use their browser to post anything (blog, news, forum post, etc.) they could use it and say it's their own. Forget it.

So I'm happily continuing with Firefox, using Adblock Plus paired with rick752's (RIP) EasyList* (whitelisting favorite/frequent sites), Tab Mix Plus, and DownThemAll (and a few other addons for website work like Firebug and Web Developer). I don't touch NoScript. I find it far too paranoid and annoying for my tastes.

*Avoid Fanboy's list, else you'll have tons of broken images on tons of websites.

@Conor55

Google Chrome has AdBlock and it's very easy to turn off the script in the settings menu.

:lol:

By the way, I don't want malware, so IE is no-go.

How would I get addons for Chrome?

Firefox.

Google's policies (and installation methods) are way too intrusive for my taste.

They want control rather than offering the end user those very options. That's a non-starter for me.

I have used both and prefer FF myself. I do like the addons as I used NoScript and AdBlock on all my systems. Just my .02 :unsure:

Firefox with ABP and NoScript here. I tried Chrome several times but I don't like it. I also use Lynx when I need to search for something real quick and can't wait for my overloaded Firefox to start up; I have a bad habit of overloading things. I bookmark 1 out of like 5 pages I visit. You can imagine what's going on behind the scenes when I enter something in the address bar... lol

This is one of the major reasons I like Chrome over Firefox.

If you should have a fake scan page attempt to download a file and lock

the tab or browser you can use the build in task manger to kill that tab.

Nice feature but certainly not worth switching over to it, but don't worry, if that feature does well then Firefox and IE will eventually use it too :P

Sorry but with the history of Google "accidentally" providing private indexed data out to the public and some of their other marketing practices I would never use a Google browser period.
