Moving To Google Chrome

I’m a big fan of Mozilla Firefox, but I finally have made the decision to use Google Chrome as my default browser. I did it for just one reason. Speed. Everything just seems faster in Chrome. It’s just not my perception either.  Benchmarks after benchmarks have indicated that Chrome is the just fastest browser in the planet.

So, when Mozilla came out today with Firefox 4 Beta 7, I was a bit hopeful, but my hope was quickly dashed when it reported that Firefox 4 is still slower than Chrome. Don’t get me wrong, Firefox 4 is still considerably faster than it’s current offering, but just not fast enough compared to the current Chome release.

To help me with my decision, I was able to download my favorite plugin called Web Developer Tools to work in Google Chrome. I love this plugin. If you’re a web developer, it’s a must have. Unless something dramatic changes in the browser world, I’ll be on Google Chrome for a while.

  1. Totally agree. I’ve been using ever since it came out. It’s just so fast, it leaves IE standing. Don’t know about the other browsers though.
    The other thing I like is that fact that wherever you have a text input field, the spell checker is always on and it is so easy to switch from one language to another.

  2. I followed a link the other day and it lead me to a blog written in Japanese. The translate feature is pretty awesome. It’s not perfect, but you get the gist of the message.
