I am a FF 4.0 user, but the guy has sound arguments.
Interesting article and some good points made but no mention of IE's long and repeated history of security vulnerabilities? The frequency of issuing updates and versatility of multiple platform applicability to me does not mean jack shit if I know I am vulnerable to attacks and cyber fraud. I simply refuse to take the chance.

yea... google is willing to pay anyone who cracks chrome $20k and probably a nice paying job too.

this is from 2009 but i think its still relevant.

Before with FF I had issues with video skipping and stuttering, and no matter where I put the mouse cursor, a stupid box would appear right below it. Drove me crazy, so I switched to GC. I love GC and have been using it for a year now. Sometimes it has compatibility issues, but I also have FF and IE on standby just in case. I only usually used FF for its YouTube video downloader add-on for ripping videos off websites.

I gave FF4 a try, I like it a lot and might revert back to it. GC is a hard browser to beat, so it seems like IE9 and FF4 went with the GC-look for their browsers.

All I know is that chrome gave me a virus on a porn site that I am 100% fine and safe with when using Firefox, Opera, AND IE. I don't like that at all.

Firefox is great (especially the 135i theme I got on it ), but it's annoying because it keeps asking me to submit my data and I really don't want to. I know it's a beta but leave me alone! I can opt into automatically sending it without asking me, why can't I opt out without it always bugging me?

At least in the early betas it was an add-on, that you could delete. Check your add ons. I deleted mine and it never asked me to submit data.
