Anybody using Google "Chrome?"

With a majority of our research coming from Google, are there any advantages/disadvantages to using Google Chrome?

yeah I have it installed but don't use it much. I use Firefox 99% of the time, FF has so many useful plugins it is an essential tool for me.

Chrome is fast, and its designed so that if a web page stops responding it doesn't hang the whole browser, which can happen in FF and Internet Explorer. Not sure if FF has taken on board this design recently, but I'm still sticking with FF.

I use chrome only for one thing, to check my google related accounts. For everything else I have firefox. This way Google can't spy on me or the sites I visit.

I too use firefox and chrome occasionally, when too many tabs open and slowing down my pc on firefox. Firefox is the best browser in terms of net neutrality (it´s a part of the Mozilla organization, that is non-profit oriented) unlike google or Apple with safari and of course MS Explorer. Moreover, it´s got a lot of useful plugins for us IM´s and also private user. The founder is a great guy who wants to provide value, selection and does a lot of philontropy.
There a lot of ways in looking into this. Commercially, technically, democratically, aesthetically and so on. It´s your choice, I choose to use firefox for the above reasons and chrome when and then on a diet. The choice is yours.

For me, a disadvantage of using chrome is that I am not familiar with it and it would slow me down as I work.

I had it installed on my computer at one time, fairly recently. But I have gotten so used to my beloved firefox that I kept going back to it and used chrome only for comparisons on how websites look like on different browsers. There wasn't that much difference so I eventually uninstalled chrome.

And I agree with Bill about the firefox plugins. I couldn't get the same on chrome so I went back to firefox.

I use chrome most of the time.
The main drawback for me is that I haven't figured out how to use it's bookmarking system.
FF's bookmarking is easier to use.

I use FF when I'm doing web development.

I don´t like the google built in data collection / spy functionality built in most of their tools. I actually try to stay away from google tools as much as i possible can even if most of them are among or best on the market. Chrome or chromium is a open source project from where Chrome is developed. there is a good open souce version of chrome browser at http://www.chromeplus.org/ . Its more less identical to chrome just the difference is that the google data collection/spy functionality is removed.

Personally I don´t trust that google collected data won´t be used against you when trying to rank sites....

I switched from Firefox to Chrome recently and I love it. The bookmarking abilities, the flexibility when adding tabs, new windows, the plugins, etc. The biggest advantage is the speed compare to any other browser. Great one!!!

I used Google chrome before because it's fast but I switched back to FF because of the plugins.

I'm using Google Chrome every now and then but most of the time I use Firefox for navigating multiple websites. While I agree that Google Chrome is fast, my computer slows down if I use it with 10 or more tabs open. Unlike Firefox which allows me to have even up to 20 tabs open at a time without affecting my PC's performance. And of course Firefox supports a lot of plugins that I use often. e.g. Affilorama SEO toolbar: http://www.affilorama.com/blog/firefox-seo-toolbar

I just found out that there are Chrome extensions for Web developers which I wasn't aware of before. Check out this post on Search Engine Journal:

I've tried different browsers from IE to FF, to Opera, but the one I like best and am currently using is google chrome. Sure, it doesn't have the add-ons and the functionality of firefox, but it is no nonsense and the speed is incomparable. But if you want a balance between speed and functionality, I would recommend using Opera.

I've tried Google Chrome, FireFox, Safari and Internet Explorer. I like firefox the best but right now am using IE only because I haven't figured out some things I would like Chrome or FF to do like IE. Chrome is fast though, I use that one at work. Anywho, hope that helps.

Fast forward to 4 years later.

I have always used Chrome and thought it's cool, but I wish I have discovered--and experienced--Firefox waaay earlier.

It's only now I realize why it's #1.

Hello add-ons. Hello Affilorama SEO Toolbar. Hello Firefox!

I'm still a fan of Firefox because of the plug-ins and extensions but, as others have mentioned, Chrome is doing a pretty good job of catching up in that respect.
