Thank you FreewheelinFrank  ;) for arguments and sound reasoning and for passionate involment in the question. It simply took off any doubts about FIREFOX 3.5 being the fastest and most secure and universal browser for the moment and it is certainly the most adapted to my PC habits. Long live Firefox 8)

I have most browsers available to me.
I've been using Google Chrome as my default for quite some time.
Firefox has become my second choice simply because there isn't any speed comparison between the 3.
Chrome wins hands down.

I have Opera 10 & Iron on my XP Sp3 machine.  My tests show Opera is fastest.

On my new Vista 64bit laptop I have both IE 32bit & IE 64bit and Opera 10.  IE 64bit launches & loads faster than IE 32bit, but Opera launches & loads faster than IE 64bit.  (There is no 64bit Opera.)

Chrome may be fast, but function wise, it's totally useless. It only has the most basic features and no support for any kind of extensions what so ever. I just can't use it, because it has no bookmarks sync, no mouse gestures, hel, they even don't integrate their OWN GMail notifier. Lame.
Your right, no gestures but it still works fine for me. ( To each their own poison.  ;D )

Maybe not the time or place to say the finial of Opera 10 is pretty nice?
Not that I have given it default browser status over Firefox 3.5.2,
but I have downloaded it,and given it its own sandbox!

Just for info but there is Chrome Plus, a Chromium-based browser with 5 extra-features, which includes Mouse Gestures.  Personally, I'll stick to Iron Browser and Firefox, though.

PS  I've been busy lately, which is not necessary a bad thing.

Very nice!

Just got the Opera repository working in Ubuntu and posting from 10 now.

Inline spelling check is a big plus for me- absence of such was a show-stopper for me with the previous version.

FreewheelinFrank :

 Agreed. I had tried a Opera 10 Beta,and the 9 version and I just could not
get the "feel" for it.
This is much better.
The small resource use is really amazing.

Browser Speed Tests: Chrome 4.0 and Opera 10 Take On All Challengers
Put on your boxing gloves.  ;D ;D
Actually, those who are fighting each other are developers of these browsers and I admire their efforts.  Also, Lifehacker did a good job on the analysis, which is very convincing to me in a way that it matches my own personal experience with some of the products (I haven't tested all).  It makes a good model to prove that keeping "healthy" competition in the market sharpen the services/products.

As for the original topic, at least, Secunia won't agree with that IE 8 is the safest browser...(Try PSI)
