You on commission? There is no such thing as 'perfect'. It's good and it's the one I use but it would be an outright lie to say it's never failed me or indeed that Google hasn't got some things horribly wrong in past versions (and will no doubt do so again!)

Chrome sucks badly for me.

For some reason, it lags the crap out of my computer after an hour or so. And that's coming from a quad core PC with 8GBs of ram. Firefox on the other hand, takes up to 1GB of ram sometimes but my computer is smooth as hell.

I agree with this, I use Firefox on my PC and it's fine. Chrome would lag when I'm doing intensive programs.

Yeah but Firefox is still a good alternative to Chrome... Especially when Chrome doesn't seem to agree with every site I try to access for some reason.

Perfect? Chrome is not perfect. Ever notice that there are updates to Chrome?...

And yes, I do use Chrome as my main web browser.

I do not understand why updates are a problem. Are you trying to say not many features come in to play, as often as Firefox.

Updates serve two primary purposes:
Fixing bugs and
adding features.

Bugs will always be around, therefore no web browser is perfect.

I tried Chrome before but for me it seems to be slower and all add blockers I tried did not work (I tried several). So when I did a clean install I did not even bother reinstalling it.

PS: It was not slower because of any settings, programs, insufficient specs, over utilized system, bad networking equipment and/or virus since I first tried it on a freshly installed system and several different networks.

Some people just love to use other browsers I suppose. I know for my older Mac Mini I won't be able to use it. But Opera will work on that one since it is a light version in comparison to Safari. And not to put Safari down either since it was included with OSX.

I agree that chrome is a great browser; however, I do argue the fact that it is "perfect". For example saved passwords are not encrypted which is a huge flaw!

But why don't you ask people who use non chrome browsers...

Not sure that's a 'flaw' as such. It doesn't really make a whole bunch of difference whether saved passwords are encrypted. If someone has access to the account on which you use the browser then they have access to your saved passwords whether they're encrypted or not - that's kinda the point! If you have any security issues and you have to save passwords then you should be using an independent 'safe' to store them in.

I have Chrome installed on my Mac but I rarely use it. I love Safari. It has the sleekest interface, and it's fast.

Eh, Chrome isn't really perfect. It has almost no customization (I'm talking about REAL customization, not just fancy skins and crap) and it's laggy and takes up way to many CPU resources.

I use Firefox, which is fast, powerful, reliable and has extensive customization not just with add-ons and themes but with its about:config features, too.
