Long ago, I was a pretty big advocate for Firefox. I even had the t-shirt to prove it! After Chrome came out however, it eventually won me over. It's been so long I can barely even remember the key reasons, but I'm pretty sure it had to do with streamlined UI and better performance.

Lately though, Chrome's performance is starting to annoy me and this recent update to Firefox is pretty intriguing... Any of you still prefer Firefox? Have any feedback on the new update?

I'm actually pretty pleased with Edge...the only thing I don't like about it is how it handles Favorites on the Favorites Bar.  It opens a side bar instead of expanding the folders in place.  They keep fixing stuff like that, though.... so I'll probably stick with it.

I am currently using the 64 bit version of the current Firefox which is a huge improvement over the 32 bit default install you get from the website. The 32 bit used to crash on me once or twice every couple of days, I usually keep my browser open for a few days without restarts. Its worth the look into to try it out for yourself.

@Lucas - Gotta wonder if Google will start to run afoul of some of the anti-trust / monopoly issues that hit Microsoft in the late 90's/early 00's. Definitely seeing some similarities here... They could potentially have a strong enough browser monopoly to stop other ad provider systems. But then again, I don't think Chrome has a strong enough position to really be considered a monopoly the way that Windows was.
