    Chrome is based on Chromium, and Mozilla isn't exactly a beacon of light either

    Chromium is what I use in Linux generally. Don't get me wrong I have nothing against google but I think Firefox just has higher moral standards

    But doesn't Chrome track your every move. Or has that been fixed?

    So ultimately, which browser would you use?

    I use both Firefox and Chrome. I would say Chrome feels slightly faster, and I usually recommend chrome to less "techie" people (parents, etc..) because it has its own built in flash that updates itself, so I don't have to worry about them needing to constantly update adobe flash. Plus Chrome is nice because it has a built in PDF reader.

    Why do you use both?

    I used to be a hardcore "Firefox only" user, because it had the extensions and add-ons I liked. Plus up until about 2 years ago, Chrome didn't render perfectly on some sites, so I only used Firefox (and some IE) for HTML coding. Now I use Firefox for my main / trusted sites and manage those cookies carefully. I use Chrome for everything else and just wipe the cookies after each browsing session. I guess I'm cookie paranoid.

    I use Firefox. It doesn't feel slow to me nor do I have crash issues. I do have Flash disabled so maybe that's why.
