Started using Chrome now as Firefox was driving me insane for various reasons lately.

However it seems to be negatively effecting my sound...whenever I close a tab or the entire window it makes any music/video I may be playing in the background stutter like crazy for a few seconds...it also randomly stutters when I'm just sitting here looking at something (can't definitely say Chrome has anything to do with the latter but since I discovered the first issue I'm starting to think it might).

In the long haul I'm probably going to keep it...I miss a few things about Firefox but not enough to want to switch back to it again....and if anyone knows why the hell Chrome is messing with my sound feel free to let me know. o.o

What sort of things are you missing? Because Chrome's extension support is just growing my a country mile each week.

Most of it's just stuff that sort of works but not as well as it did in Firefox...namely Flashblock which for whatever reason makes a number of videos not work properly (Youtube giving "Upgrade Adobe" type errors etc.)...I'm sure it'll work itself out after a while and it's not entirely important that I have it, I just like the ability to not even load videos on some sites (IGN or whatever it was constantly insisting on buffering trailers for things I wouldn't be interested in and then playing suddenly as I tab out and scaring the bejesus out of me).

Also the lack of the title bar thing takes some getting used to.

I think there was something else but I can't think of what it was for the bloody life of me right now.

I use both Chrome and Firefox. Sometimes I have problems with Firefox so I switch to Chrome. Yeah, I'm strange. xD I still prefer Firefox though.

I actually use Apple Safari on my Windows Vista computer. That may be seem weird but, I have never really liked Internet Explorer and Safari was the first browser I tried after getting my computer.

I love it, in fact using it right now. I learned of it when I initially downloaded iTunes to my computer.

I've only heard bad things about it... I probably won't bother, I actually download IE8 to my computer and now don't even know why since I don't use it.

Oh yeah, I forgot - I did because when I build websites I test them for appearance and alignment on IE, Safari, and AOL. IE usually shows me if my HTML code needs tweaking - so I guess I like it for that.

I think that opera, internet explorer, safarichrome, and firefox are the best web browsers there is.

I used all of them and all of them are about the same level. I like how opera creates a new tab for donwloads, which makes download management easy. opera has also speed dial. That is why i prefer opera the most. Firefox goes second place. then ie. then safari. They are all great but i think opera is the best.

xia kyoto. u use opera too?!! kool.
