I have been looking at Chrome and think I am going to pass it by (for now). While is seems to make sense for the "average" internet user who wants a faster experience, some enhanced privacy and something "new," I am so used to using Firefox with my Add-Ons, that I don't know if I could go back.

I enjoy the comfort of having AdBlock Plus, FlashBlock, No Script, Google toolbar (the Merriam-Webster link is great for writing), among others. The genius of FireFox has been, to me, its ability to be easily customized.

Without that aspect, I would not want to switch browsers.

Why does this baffle me and yet shock me a bit?

I've enjoyed Chrome the last week and have installed in two computers.

Main issues I've found doesn't do script menus well just yet. The text box has a glitch when your typing and everything else seems to pretty smooth. I think it might be a keeper.

It's faster than Firefox, but quite honestly the difference between three seconds and one-and-a-half second isn't a big deal to me. I also had problems running movies on Chrome. And I love my Firefox plug-ins, of course. I'm stickin' with Firefox.

I have no idea what you are trying to say.

One of my responsibilities at work is the corporate web page. I have to make sure it doesn't look like ass in all browsers.

If only it were that simple. Yes, GSM phones (AT&T, T-Mobile) use the same technology as 99% of the world. But they need to be unlocked in order to use the phone anywhere other than the USA.
