lordargent: And for the record, I'm firmly in the Firefox camp.Every time I try chrome, it can't handle the abuse I throw at it, it fails my acid test (opening hundreds of tabs at once). Firefox (once tweaked to hell and back) handles things fine.[lordargent.com image 466x137]The way my system is set up, Firefox is more stable, I did spend a lot of time tweaking Firefox though.Chrome IS faster than Firefox when you only open a few tabs, but I use TONS of tabs and I end up seeing this far too often[lordargent.com image 748x565]// the last full acid test I did was back in 2010, so when I have a chance I need to do an updated one (maybe when I get back this evening). 201 tabs in chrome vs 201 tabs in firefox.http://lordargent.com/temp/tech/chrome_firefox_201_tabs.png// I don't care for the chrome UI so even if the browsers were equivalent performance wise, I would still be in the Firefox camp. Chrome would have to be several steps above to make up for the discordant UI.
1000Monkeys: Yeah, but why Firefox? They don't seem to care about Chrome and it's already at 25 despite being half the age of Firefox.

I love the integration from my laptop to my phone, and it doesn't crash on me a few times a week like FireFox.
