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.

Yeah, welcome to last week. Fortunately, none of the Norton stuff is affected so (hopefully) most of the people who ARE affected are also smart enough to keep their updates updated. http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/security/Content/2006.05.25.html
