I have been using Chrome and Chromium and like windoze it gets slower over time. Maintenance of my browser really isn't something high on my list. Also it has a lot of compatibility issues for a fair few popular sites such as ebay.

I have to admit that firefox is definitely second fastest to the google troop but at the end of the day, I don't want google to have any more of my details.

I have to agree .. Firefox is just more compatible, and behaves the way I expect .. Though I love the speed of Chromium/Chrome, even on this forum if I treble-tap on the text in a (code) box, Firefox highlights the text, chrome highlights the text and space after the text, so if you then copy/paste into a terminal it acts like you've also hit enter (to run the command) which I don't always want to do.

I know that's nothing major, just an inconvenience that's easy to work round .. but it's those little inconveniences that are stopping me switching to Chrome full time.

I want Firefox with Chrome's speed :)

Mmm, I can't remember the last time I used Firefox seriously ... I know there are occasional glitches, but one thing I can't get past is the speed difference .. sometimes you may not notice, but for many things Chrome is 2,3,4,5x faster than Firefox, at the very least in terms of my perception.
[although it has to be said much of what I do is Javascript / HTML5...]

If you've not already seen this take a look at;


At the very least for pure entertainment ... or look at the video about making the video, for reasons why you might want to work for Google ..  :)

Firefox here, all the way. After all it did save me from MS ;D
Tried Chrome and Cromium for couple of months and found them seriously lacking something.
Never noticed any speed improvements over Firefox.

this proves my point that "the best " is so subjective that it's one of the plus side of linux the choice and to me (imho) it's firefox since i stopped using opera  ;)
