I started using Firefox at version 2.0. I have been using Chrome for a month now and I am hooked.

If you are like me, you saw Google’s original Chrome announcement, downloaded it, and played with it for a while. It was nice, but it wasn’t Firefox. It had some novel ideas, but Chrome didn’t have my favorite extensions.

All of that has changed with the latest version of Chrome. You can have the vast majority of the extension you have in Firefox on Chrome.  The major one I cared about was AdBlock. Its there now and removes those pesky ads.

If you haven’t already, update or download the latest version of Chrome and load up your favorite extensions. Its speed will amaze you.

I should point out that I can have only used Chrome on Windows.
