Firefox, my browser of choice for some time, had been acting up in recent months–it was hogging all of the RAM on my laptop and running slowly. A reboot of Firefox would fix the issue, but having to reboot several times a day was an annoyance.
During all of this, I heard that Google Chrome topped IE as the most popular browser, so I thought I’d give it a try (again–as I tried it when it first came out, but didn’t care for it). Well, I am converted this time. In general there’s not anything I don’t like about it–it has a clean interface and is super fast. The only negative is that one of the toolbars I use, the Web Developer toolbar, is missing some features that I need. So, I still need to use Firefox when I want to access these tools. I still see no need for IE beyond testing websites to make sure they render correctly in it (which I something I do at work, not as a hobby).
