    I like chrome more. It uses less space on screen and I work faster with it.

    Worse and worse for IE from version 8? How do you assume that, or support this statement you have? Have you not seen any benchmarks? Have you ever used IE 9 or IE 10 in comparison to 8?

    Firefox version 11 really ought to be called version 4.7 as they really haven't done anything major in the way of changes since version 4. It os only because Chrome is updating version numbers really quickly like that for every little change that Firefox started doing the same. Presumably it is part of their attempt to slow the rate at which Chrome is overtaking Firefox as the second most popular browser. Perhaps they'll give up on this by the end of the year when Chrome is the most popular browser with Firefox and IE fighting it out for second spot (in the same way they are currently competing for worst browser - with Firefox gradually winning that contest)

    Why are you talking about Firefox 11 when 19.0.2 is the latest release on their Release channel?

    Firefox would do themselves a huge favor if they were to solve their memory sink issue. If they were to adapt some of Chrome's technology to increase its speed while maintaining core fundamentals, they would probably get a good edge. Everyone will always have browser preference so it's not unlikely that a few people will stay but it's getting to the point where Firefox will be similar to IE without all of the issues. It's not hip, it's not up-to-date... it's not sleek enough or well broadcast...

    Kind of hard to compete with Google's marketing as well.

    I personally like FX, it's been faithful to me and I love my modifications. The tree style tabs, the look and feel, it's just what I'm used to I suppose.
