So guys, what do you use?  I use Chrome because it seems to seamlessly integrate with my Google account. On the IE9 fish test, I also got a higher FPS rate than on Firefox and IE9.

I see arguments coming very soon.

This isn't really meant for arguments, just a poll.

I personally used Firefox, it is simple and has everything I need. I've never been a huge chrome fan. I like SRWare Iron more than Chrome.

firefox has more features and allows more customization and i more battle hardened in terms of security.

google chrome is faster (allows for load balancing across multiple CPU cores)

A way to see a night and day difference between the performance of firefox and google chrome is to try to quickly load 50 or so tabs, they will load significantly faster and you will see that every CPU core will max out.

Even though the overall functioning of the browser is single threaded, each tab has it's own process and it attempts to equally distribute the tabs across multiple cores.

(a evolutionary step from this to have resource based distribution so if some tabs are very CPU intensive, they can have fewer competing tabs on their cores, and ultimately bringing about true multithreading for the entire browser as a whole)

Firefox is my favorite browser as it offers the functionality that I want (and chrome fails to provide)

Safari!<br /><br />Just kidding.  Out of the two choices, I'd choose Chrome any day.  I use RockMelt daily which is based off of Chrome.

I love Firefox, ever since first time I used Ubuntu. Opera is cool too. I only use chrome if no other browser will load a page, and usually if they won't load it, Chrome won't either. Firefox is my primary whether I'm on my Mac or Windows7.
