    "Fast but dull. Reasonable first attempt.could do better"

    September 2, 2008  |   By Mike7p

    Pros

    Lightening fast to both, launch browser and web pages. Outstrips all others browsers I've ever used. Uses little memory.

    Cons

    Dull and boring looking UI. No add ons.
    Very few user changeable features. Can't even customise toolbar. No statusbar.

    Summary

    I will continue using Firefox 3 even though it is slower simply because there are lots more useful features. If a feature isn't already built in you are likely to find an extension to do the task you want. Also, if after a few months you get bored with the appearance of it, you can always find a new theme for it.
    To be fair I will take another look at Chrome again in a few months to see if there are any of its shortcomings the have been addressed.
