Yep, Chrome is way faster then the rest. That's why I use it also. Don't really care if it eats some of my 4GB RAM, it's not like I play games and browse the internet simultaneously!

Figures taken after all tabs were closed at end.
It looks like Chrome has some vicious memory spikes when there are a lot of pages open. They should look into fixing that.
Personally, it doesn't really bother me... I mean, I've got 4GB of RAM in total - 3GB of it is sitting free when I'm browsing the internet. If it wants to use it, it's not like it's got anything better to do. I'm not going to be playing Crysis when I'm looking at pr0n.
But Chrome is too rudimentary for me. I've got used to too many FF addons.
Yeah thats one thing they need.
Thing is, i dont think chrome will ever support a flash blocker. How do you think google makes all of its money? flash adverts. It seems contrary to their whole profit motive to include a flash blocker in their own browser
Chrome ftw. Excuse my noobness but what advantage does add-ons give FF over Chrome? So you're able to customize your browser in a million in one ways but does it make it a more effective web browser which is what essentially you do with a browser. Chrome is simple, uncomplicated, uncluttered and efficient. I need nothing else from a browser..
Mind you just finished browsing the FF add-ons list and it's pretty impressive...
