Google Chrome

Just starting using this browser but it doesn't seem very secure. Is there any way to encrypt your saved passwords? If you click "option' then "show saved passwords" and then "show passwords", anyone using or hacking your computer/laptop can see all of them. Not cool. Master password? Might be returning back to Firefox...

I've been using it for a few months now. I don't save passwords for stuff that's actually meaningful. Firefox was using up to much RAM for my liking, and every time I'd try and open a PDF within the browser it'd crash

I prefer Chrome to Firefox, personally. I think it runs way smoother than the rest.

does google chrome support open development and add-ons like firefox? I have so many useful add-ons on firefox that i prob wouldn't be able to live without if chrome didn't have them like NoScript (prevents all scripting without your consent such as keylogging, unauthorized downloading, bypassing ads, etc ) , theme add-ons, plugins, etc

I used firefox for the past 3 years.. I put chrome on my work PC about 2 months ago, but still had FF on my personal computer.. I finally made the switch entirely to chrome

I work in IT so this may have something to do with my preference.. but chrome>firefox

Been using Chrome for over a year now, starting with Chromium. Ditched Firefox immediately after that.

Been using chrome for more than a year now. Love how simplistic it looks yet just as if not more powerful than firefox, also seems faster too IMO.

Early versions of Chrome kept crashing my computer and McAfee anti-virus kept saying it was a virus.

Has Chrome gotten any better ??

Too many chrome users were abusing that feature due to your fap thread so they got rid of it
