I still think Firefox is wwaaaaaay better than Chrome anyway. Chrome always made my computer freeze when watching YouTube videos and I know where all the debugging tools are in Firefox already.

Chrome until they fix their buggy problems and become useful it will be their own demise not FireFox that will do them in. Firefox for me will always be better then Chrome and now that we know about Google tracking user login in or not this will start to make people leave Chrome even more. Here’s a small quote

[B]What do Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari web browsers have in common?[/B]

They all had the sensibility to ad here to the Do Not Track web standard.“Do Not Track is a technology that enables users to opt out of third-party web tracking, including behavioral advertising. At present a user cannot opt out of many of the hundreds of tracking services and advertising networks; those that do allow opting out each require setting (and not deleting!) an opt-out cookie. Much like the popular Do Not Call registry, Do Not Track provides users with a single, persistent setting to opt out of web tracking.”

The biggest abuser of user data is third-party behavioral advertising. These advertising networks massively distribute their ad programs across the web and you unknowingly cross their path many times a month.

As Google Chrome grows in popularity? According to IT reports I’ve read, Chrome is actually declining in popularity.

According to a recent slashdot article, chrome users have, on average, higher IQ than mozilla firefox users & IE users, in that order.

I’m curious whether google had anything to do with that submission.

With the googles recent announcement that privacy it’s dead, out seems like google is the new facebook for privacy violations.

I’m surprised google chrome has any users at all.

I’ll be upfront with you guys . . . I have played with Chrome, but from what I can see, it can’t come close to holding a candle to Firefox (in my humble opinion). I’ve been a Firefox advocate for years, and I do not see anyone outdoing them at their own game

Same here but I won’t go as far as to advocate that FF is the only browser to use but for those wanting to pass on their private browsing info please do use Chrome as they will collect your precious private browsing and spam you until you stop using Chrome. Chrome remember is part of Google that is trying to watch your browsing activities and use that to sell to third parties you may disagree with that but remember once you use their browser you already agreed to their terms of usage regardless of what you may think. FF on the other hand is not tied to what IE or Chrome is tied to their sponsors or advertising money directly. FF will get advertisements but not tied to their sponsors as much as IE and Chrome is. So Chrome users browse away and be sure to sigh up for their I got Chromed domed…
