FF has become slow as ****. It got to the point where I really couldn't care less what they have to offer.

I've been loyal to FF for as long as I can remember. But admittedly the browser has become terrible. Its slow, it constantly crashes, its a resources hog and it keeps shitting updates on users every week and nothing gets fixed.

Three weeks ago I installed Chrome and I have seen the light. Its blazing fast compared to FF and way more stable and optimized. Granted there are a couple of FF features I miss but they wouldn't ever justify sticking with or going back to FF at this point.

Definitely too slow, and eats enough vram to make a difference on a 1GB card while gaming

I run both Adblock and NoScript, so this makes no difference to me.

@helwa1988: You know that Google Chrome has Adblock right?
