Firefox vs Chrome

I've moved. Firefox was doing my head in. Too slow, always breaking, and never quite ready to go.

So I downloaded Chrome (after my husbands pestering, and of course he's right) and will try out Google's offering for a web browser. So far, so good. Much alike between the two, but already, there is a speed about how Chrome works. It's zippy. I nearly threw my laptop out of the window today, all I was trying to do was purchase chocolate for mother's day, and every move of boxes, firefox would go into 'not responding' mode and be there for about 15 seconds. I'm pretty patient, but I like to work efficiently. Waiting 15 seconds for something, every 10 seconds, is rubbish.

Right now, Chrome is working really well. I don't like ANY of the themes, it'll take a while to get used to, but I can cope with that more than getting totally impatient about a simple purchase.

Does everything you normally do work?
My last experience of Chrome was that anything Java based didn't work (or not properly) - long time ago.

Everything, including java, works fine.

In my place, both Mozilla or Chrome are the same. I mean, both are slow, because the Internet connection at my place is not maximized. But I prefer Mozilla. Chrome is indeed fast, but it 'eat' more memory than other browsers. If we are not diligent in cleaning the cache, the computer will slow down as we use to other things.
I just stop by and read your writings. It is important for me to add my insight and refreshing mind. Best regards!.
