Ahh, I see what you mean.
But I just click it and go back, literally like 1 second worth of time

Annoying rating = 3/100 for me at least....

But yeah.
I feel FireFox is lacking in actual features and addons are the only thing that is keeping it alive.

Would anyone use FF without addons?
Didn't think so.

Hate me for saying this but: good point.

But why does WinMatrix take forever to load in Chrome? I still use Firefox though.

Like I said before, Chrome needs to have add-ons and be fully compatible with WindowBlinds skins before I'll start really using it...

Considering google makes a good amount of money from ads, I doubt they'd allow an ad blocking extension for their browser.

This is actually a plus point for Firefox that it's not bloated with tons of features. It includes some essential features which everybody uses, rest of the features can be added through add-ons.

I'm just waiting for the add-ons for Chrome, till then Firefox is the browser for me.

Firefox never gives me memory leaks and Chrome takes up about 95k with 3 tabs and freezes alot, while Firefox with 3 tabs uses around 95-100k with mroe functionality and never crashes for me. 5k of ram isn't that much for a way better browser.

Chrome has never crashed on me on the Beta releases.
On the developer ones, yes I admit they do crash.

Besides, it is in beta.
Its unfair still.

I honestly believe a bare bones FireFox 3 (no addons) is not as good as a Chrome 0.3

That really says something.

True it is in beta, but im using Minefield 3.1 beta (ffx 3.1) and I haven't crashed once.
Firefox 3.1 with no addons has everything chrome has except
*The URL highlight, i.e http://www.winmatrix.com/forums/
*The Task Manager
*Google Gears Intergration
*Ability to search with Navigation bar

Chrome doesn't have (besides addon support):
*NATIVE theme support
*Session restore on startup (with or without crash)
*A good bookmark manager
*A fullscreen mode
*Market Share :P

Correct me if i'm wrong about something, I probably am.

Still that is not a good comparision,

A 0.3 Beta vs a 3.1 beta? -.-

*NATIVE theme support - Seriously, who cares, bloatware. (IMO)
*Session restore on startup (with or without crash) yes it does.
*A good bookmark manager - It does on the Developer 0.4, besides who actually uses bookmarks?
*A fullscreen mode - Who actually uses this?
*Market Share - doesn't that mean its safer? less exploits? etc..

You'd be surprised how many people use bookmarks and fullscreen mode.

Even though less market share means safer, it still has more exploits, just less people targeting it.

Chrome is new, and become easily popular.
Market share may mean lower people using it, but remember: it is growing.
Hackers do not read market share, besides, does firefox get some exploits?

It has a good future but I use Firefox because of some good features, my favorite extensions and stability.
