I couldn't find anywhere the flexibility and the configurability of Firefox extensions...

i don't care if they made ie 20, opera 20.5,or safari OX 100 there's nothing that is going to compare or beat the big bad FOX.just deal with it ,live with it ,just handle the damn truth!!!!!!!!! it's all about firefox plain an simple .....

You get exactly the same effect as if you put a collar on horse's head. It is not plain and simple as you think it is and Firefox is not the best browser out there.

I couldn't find anywhere the flexibility and the configurability of Firefox extensions...

Of course you can not get them, yet. Google Chrome is in early beta stage, what to expect at this point? Let give it some time and I am almost 100% sure developers will start working on it just like they swarmed around firefox. No question, Chrome is The Fastest browser out there. Not safe enough ? Well, maybe that's true, but just find me one that's 100% safe. There is no safe browser and it will never be, you have to live with it. When IE 8 comes out, I am  positive, the very next day someone will come up with dozen of links saying about all vulnerabilities and security holes they have discovered. This is becoming so boring. Yawn!

I'm not married with Firefox... I wish Chrome get better and better... maybe I drop Firefox.
Right now, it's far away from the best point. What I can say from a lot of other Google tools is that configurability and flexibility aren't their better. They make simple (and very good) products, not flexible ones.

While there isn't a browser that's 100% safe, I think Opera is the safest browser. :)

Opera is the friendliest, easiest browser to use.  It's a delight to surf with Opera.

I've never used Chrome, but Opera is the fastest browser I've used.  K-Meleon is very fast, but suffers from many of FF's short comings.

Of all the browsers I've used, the one I liked the least was Safari.

The Linux browser I liked best is Konqueror.  (I was never able to try Opera on Linux.)

I used to use Opera, very fast browser. But I remember it had a memory leak in the Mac version and thats why I quit using it at the time. Maybe time to download it again.

As for the safest browser, I think pretty much all the major browsers (apart from IE) are Safe to use. Afterall browsing habits have a big impact on security, if you visit questionable sites you will eventually get exploited/infected no matter what the browser is since all have vulnerabilities.

That's nothing more than being a "Fan Boy"
With that attitude, you'll never discover anything new.
Chrome is much faster than Firefox. Easy to use and I've found it very stable even if it's still a beta release.
(Oh, I forgot, it's from Google and most of their stuff is still beta.....)
It's currently running as my default browser.  :)

everyone is different in everything
that's why there are so many choices out there in everything
just go to the grocery store and look at all the cereal's
you have your choices-eat what you like
same as browsers-use what you like
I admit Chrome is fast- but so is Garfield-but i'm still using Firefox and Opera ;)
page 6 on this thread coming soon :o

I suggest you do some serious research next time before you say something like that. If you haven't already, check their comic about how Chrome is engineered and why it's fast as it is. Then maybe, you will come to realise why it really is the fastest browser out there. "Two days" what the hell are you talking about?!! How many days do you need to realise how fast it renders everything? Three?! Do some research as I said.

Like FF for it's extensions but I can't install any right now and I don't like it. Are they so safe after all? Reliable? We rely a lot on NoScript, for example, what if it became corrupt. I've uninstalled Threatfire, I also ran a registry clean up with MVRegClean that is in depht and Advance Window Care and Glary and it just won't install, any of them. I read a thread on the Threatfire forum on PCTools about it but so far the software is gone. Weird. Just to say I am less secure than I was with FF 3.0.1 than I was 1 week ago. But do we have a choice (those who care about security) than surfing with the great FOX?     ??? Note:CHROME IS BETA and all my extension problems started after I downloaded it, but I have no proof. :-\
