[citation][nom]steiner666[/nom]Pretty much all these add-ons already exist for FF, and the rest already existed under different names. It's like the south park ep "the simpsons already did it!".[/citation]
I should hope most of these exist for FF--Firefox has been around A LOT longer than Chrome. But some people like Chrome better--and they want to have all the same perks as Firefox. We wrote this article for those people.
[citation][nom]KAMLOTTON[/nom]I found all extentions links broken each time same message: "Item not found. This item may have been removed by its author."[/citation]
KAMLOTTON, it seems we've got a bug in the site that we're trying to work out. But if you want to see the extensions, you can click the link and remove the %20%20%20. That'll take you to the direct page, or just go to http/chrome.google.com/extensions/
Lovely, except I still in a long lasting and stable relationship with Firefox. Firefox is my favorite browsers since many years, I really can't break the habit of using it and I still find it to be the best overall, plus Firefox addons are still better...

I totally agree with you. However, I sometimes am amazed at how quickly Chrome has caught up in so many areas...and think about how long it took for FF to get that much cred....years and years. That's what you get when you're backed by Google and not an opensource grass-roots effort (at the time).
Youtube for music? Isn't that like radio quality?
[a quick search indicates that audio, despite the rate uploaded at, is transcoded to many bitrates and then played back depending on bandwith loads (both ends?), as far as I can tell.]
Regardless...and I'm a fan of many more eclectic bands, so...there are TONS of songs from my library that are simply not on Youtube. The ones that make it to the site are often user uploads of horrible audio quality...even noticeable on mediocre speakers.
That said, it is a convenient way to listen to a gigantic library of songs with a few clicks!
damn...just checked and three of the five 'obscure' bands had a bit of contend uploaded...and, they seemed to only sound crappy b/c my lame computer speakers. still take a little offense to keeping a music library, but part of my rebuttal seems on shaky ground.
Due to lack of support, Adblock for chrome actually doesn't prevent most ads from downloading, it just hides them as quickly as possible. You're actually not hurting most sites if you'd never click on ads anyway.
I like firefox, but it seems to be getting more and more bloated as newer versions come out, and doesnt seem as responsive as it used to be, especially after you start adding addons. I havent had that problem with chrome. I really hope FF4 turns things around when it is finally finished. As it stands Im noticing myself using Chrome more and more.
