Chrome 9 is extremely fast

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Firefox 4.b11 beta shapes up
Google recently introduced its Chrome 9 browser and even if you are loyal Firefox or IE user, its worth looking into.

Chrome 9 is very fast and it feels like the fastest browser around. We especially liked the fact that the address bar and search bar are now unified and it is easier than ever to google things up.

Firefox 4 got to beta 11, which also works quite well, but general impression is that Chrome 9 is faster. We have to admit that you won't go wrong with any of those, and even the release candidate of Internet Explorer 9 shaped up to be a quite nice browser.

We hope to see the final version of Internet Explorer and Firefox shortly but even in their beta / release candidate phase they work quite nice. The next generation of browsers definitely offers a wind of change.

firefox is way better in terms of options and customization, it has a lot of things , thus not the fastes , chrome is extremely light-weight.

Firefox Setup.exe is 8 Megabytes , while chrome is 550 Kilobytes

Still Opera is my favorite and fastest browser in my opinion too, FF is the best for its extensions...

I believe that is the web installer only which downloads more parts during installation.

Anyway, nice to see more competition.

What kind of FUD is that? Hasn't that been a function since Chrome 3?

Not sure since how far back but I've been on Chrome since about 6 and that feature was there all along.

IE9 RC is faster than Chrome 9 in SunSpider on my machine by 10%. FF 4 catches up a bit but it's the addons that keep me with FF, Chrome just doesn't have a competitive enough plugin architecture.

Chrome is a large download and FF is the smallest of the big name browsers out there.

Rendering wise, maybe?... Opera does the best job there. But then again, I'm not going to base my preference on a few milliseconds difference while sacrificing functionality. Each have pros and cons.

Did you rediscover America? Chrome has been from the beginning the fastest browser (lately tied with Opera). And it always had the address bar and the search bar unified. I've been using it since it was in its early beta and that hasn't changed. But it's good that you, being an IT editor, have just found out about this!
