Anyone that has used both of them, do you notice a speed difference in NO with Chrome? I know Chrome uses the V8 js engine, and it's supposed to be a lot faster. I have noticed periodic slowdowns, and cpu usage spikes in Firefox.

I use Firefox 2 & 3 as well as Iron, the non-Google reporting version of Chrome and I don't see much of a difference, if any in speed.

I love Firefox but think I'll likely switch to Chrome once we have add-ons such as bookmark synching.
I'm also using it for Nile online because not only does it seem a little faster but it definitely doesn't mess up the pull-downs on the market as Firefox 3 has been doing for me.

yes sure google Chrome is the best browser, when i first downloaded it, my internet was running at a lighting speed, i even checked my speed ( http://www.ip-details.com/internet-speed-test/ ) and it was normal too, hitherto i used firefox which chocked my browsing capabilities .
But the only one advantage with firefox is that it has more add ons, which makes things much easier

I use IE8 & have no problems at all. OK, I also have a gaming SuperComputer now. ;)

I use IE 8 on my laptop with chrome in reserve
On my gaming machine I use Mozilla with chrome in reserve.
The only differences I see are load times..
On the laptop
IE8 takes longest to load but with browsing there seems to be little difference except in secure browsing where IE wins hands down. Seems Chrome or Mozilla can not handle some secure websites (banking, stock trading etc..) and actually just does not work in some cases.
On the gaming machine I use Mozilla because of the scripts for NO. When I load chrome I notice google searching seems a touch faster and has better search suggestions (as expected from something tied to google).
As for browsing speeds or downloading (outside of Java apps/scripts) the three browsers seem to perform basically the same. In my experience IE seems to handle java apps/scripting better than the others and has the most compatibility.
I used to prefer Chrome because they had the first private browsing but now Mozilla and IE both have the feature.
