taxlady, I just googled firefox vs. chrome and found this review. Google Chrome 10 vs. Firefox 4 vs. Internet Explorer 9: See Which Is Fastest

There were others I didn't read. According to this review, tests ranked the browsers as follows: FF #1, IE #2 and Chrome #3.

I dumped Chrome and am now running Firefox, enjoying it much more now.

I'm checking out the new FF. It's looking good. Looks like they learned a few things from Chrome

BTW, why did you dump Chrome?

It didn't act right from first use. I couldn't get anywhere with it, it kept telling me there was no data transfer and that was here at DC...I would reply to a post and have to resubmit it three or four times before it would take. Frustrating!

The keyboard key combination of "Control +" or "Control -" adjusts the overall magnification of the screen in I.E. or Firefox.

If you haven't yet, as others before me have already mentioned, for a performance boost I suggest you switch your browser to Firefox! It has addons that inhibit popups and nasties.

Sounds like I should give Firefox a try.
Does anyone here run a Google taskbar with Firefox? I imagine FF would let me install it since IE did...

Does the owner of this site own Firefox or something ;^)
Why would I all of a sudden get these ads squishing DC over to the side unless something changed here on DC? I would gladly pay to have my full screen back.
I have no plans to switch to FF.

Any site that does not work with IE is a site I do not need.
