Blah, I hate Firefox. It has always loaded slower, not to mention I just prefer the feel of IE. Besides, IE8 is a good browser.

Chrome seems pretty decent, haven't found a site where I can actually notice the speed difference though.
I think I'll stick with FF3 it feels more stable and complete.

Wow, this looks really promising.

Will definitely keep an eye on it, javascript is super quick

FYI the Firefox 3.1 beta has some javascript speed enhancements if you enable them in about:config.

Seems about on par +/- to Chrome.

Yeah, I've read Firefox 3.1 will have an even faster javascript engine. But it's nice that this is spurring on competition. Maybe even Internet Explorer will get a faster javascript engine, it seems to be lost in the dust kicked up by Mozilla and Google right now :P

I'm fine with Firefox 3 at the moment, I might give Chrome a try though just to see how it is. I know I'm in the minority but I like clutter, well organised clutter. I have loads of icons on my desktop for example, but it speeds everything up for me cos I know where everything is. Same with Firefox, I have buttons spanning the whole 1680 pixels of the screen, speeds things up for me cos I can just shoot the cursor up to where I want it.

Something that sounds great about Chrome is the independent tab rendering, I like the idea of how individual tabs can crash without ballsing the whole browser window up.

I like Chrome, the url bar at the top is really intelligent...u type 'sc' and press enter and it goes to www.scirra.com if u've visited it before :P Firefox 3 requires u to click on the dropdown list. Also it seems to have google search built into the address bar. Like for instance, type in 'doppel', wait for about half a second, and google search results appear in the address bar as well as 'did u mean...' etc etc.

Also I like how the tabs appear in the title bar, it saves a lot of room.
