When it comes to web browsers, it's nice to see these companies working to improve on their products my making them render web pages faster but in reality the difference in browser rendering speed between different browsers is hardly noticeable. I don't understand why people switch from browser to browser every time something new ships that may have a 1ms faster page rendering time. I stick with FF because it works on all my machines (WinXP/Win7/Linux) so I have a familar interface w/keyboard short cuts on each computer and it's massive library of add-ons. But I guess it's what ever floats people's boats.
Phatboe: People are switching because it is not about 1 ms. Try e.g. Firefox 3.0 and Google chrome in the same day for few hours. Difference is more than significant. Firefox has improved with version 3.5 where browsing experience (as compared with other browsers) is acceptable. Though, there is still plenty of space for improvements and Google Chrome basically works as a challenge for other browsers saying: It can be also another way. Much Faster.
I'd love to go back to FF. I was all about it in the 2.0 days. FF3 just didn't play well with my computers at work. Long startup times and occasional crashing. Chrome definitely has me happy with its pure speed and clean look, but it just doesn't have all the plug-ins like FlashBlock and it still has some trouble displaying websites. I'm still glad to see both FF and Chrome moving forward. More speed, more compatibility, more stability.
More stability in Windows 7 would be nice. Have never had problems with Firefox, however in Windows 7 it's the only piece of software I have temporary freeze ups with. Rest of the system stays active, but Firefox will stop responding for 3-7 seconds sometimes while it does.... whatever it's doing.
