Does anyone use CHROME by Google as their internet browser? What do you think of it?

Im getting tired of all of the quirks with IE and am trying to decide which to move to.

I switched to Firefox by Mozilla. I am happy with it and it was recommended by a computer tech.

I have been using FireFox for several years now and happy with it. Not nearly the problems you get with IE.

Another resounding vote for FireFox --- I've been using it for several years and like it very much.

IMO Chrome is too new to judge very well. I have heard both good and bad things. Try reviewing the Chrome forum on Google.

I have used Firefox from the first day it was released. The program runs with no glitches and you can tailor it to your liking with super add-on's and features IE will never have.

I tried Google Chrome awhile back so I can't get a good current assessment. However, Chrome caused a number of problems at that time. Even uninstalling the browser did not resolve the problems which carried over to IE. I had to do a restore to a date prior to installing Chrome to get my computer working properly again.
I also have Firefox but I prefer the IE browser and continue to use it without incident.

I've been using Chrome since the first beta release. I also use FireFox and IE when necessary. I've come to prefer Chrome, which appears to be faster than FireFox.

Thanks for the Info. I may wait on CHROME until the bugs are worked out and switch to FireFox.

If you have not tried Fire Fox, you need to go ahead and make the download...it is FREE. I had one website a years or so back that would not open with FireFox, and I had to use IE. Not had a problem since.
