Chrome is just so much quicker and snappier, especially on my low-end netbook and even more so on my high end x64 dell laptop.
I find that with FireFox 3.6, much of the speed gap has been closed between FF and Chrome.

FF 3.6 did speed things up but chrome is still noticably quicker and snappier on my systems.

Chrome is slower with more extensions.

For some reason it's not rendering my chess games at chess.com.
FF does fine but chrome will show the site but not the pieces on the board.
Must have something to do with images, cause that's what the chess pieces are, images.
I have Java and Flash, does Chrome block java?....I don't know.

If anyone wants to look at it, I imagine you would have to register and start a game.
It is free, and also has membership services to pay for.
But to play there is no cost.

Firefox is slower with more extensions...The more you load on top of your browser, generally, the slower it becomes. This is not a chrome unique problem.

If you use AdBlock or Flashblock for Chrome, I've found it to be very aggressive. I have to either whitelist the site or turn it off to pay bills, or play games.

Yes, Zaine, it was the adblock extension.
Disabled it and the page is fine now.

Funny, I have adblock+ on FF and it does not interfere.
Thanks for your input.

Roboform has apparently decided to stop waiting for opera to implement a decent API and as such has a pre-alpha build of RF which "works" with opera. It works, but I have yet to fully test functionality. See here:

Apple has just outed a press release for Safari 5, which curiously didn't get a mention during the company's WWDC10 keynote, but should be ready to download any minute now. Safari Reader is making its debut, as we'd heard it might, alongside a claimed 30 percent performance improvement over Safari 4 and -- mirroring the iPhone 4 -- Bing as one of the preloaded search engine options. Google and Yahoo are still around, don't freak out. Apple is also adding in Extensions (think Firefox's Add-Ons) to the browser, allowing devs to use HTML5, CSS and JavaScript to pretty up the browsing experience.

Opera is now the only MAJOR browser to NOT support extensions. I guess all that innovating with such useful features as: Built-in torrent support, opera unite, opera turbo, and the ever-so-updated wand are just preventing them from implementing something as frivolous as extensions.

God dammit, Safari, you were supposed to act as the scapegoat for Opera shortcomings. Who are we going to put the blame on for now on? Lynx?

And what's this, Apple? What happened with your closed ecosystem? Did you crumble under the pressure of the open source commies? You can't trust anybody these days.

So, yeah, as I said before in the thread, the only thing holding Opera Software for implementing an extension system is themselves.

maybe you should write to them but praise them instead for not including extensions support. it'll be a case of reverse reverse-psychology.
