Even if it's still in BETA i have to give it to google chrome, ever since i downloaded it i've never experienced any crashing or any slow downs, even if i open 5-6 tabs at the same time.

Firefox exclusively. If I must use IE for a site (we deal with a lot of government agencies, and a bunch of them require it), I can open a tab in Firefox that uses the IE rendering engine - IE within Firefox...

IE is ok, but Firefox is far superior in just about every way (IMHO). I'm not interested in Google Chrome because they're already too powerful and their secret plans for world domination frighten me.

Can you tell me how to get that rendering engine?

I'm very interested.

I heard recently that IE has more than a 50% market share. Not at my house, it doesn't... Firefox, Safari and Chrome for us.

Google is a very young company with a lot of money, a lot of influence and a very secret agenda. They may handle all of that responsibly, or they may pull a Microsoft and try to "take over the world"... Based on their age and their interest in the airwaves and the fiber, I'm leaning towards the latter. My personal belief is that their goal is for you to be forced to use one of their products or services every time you do anything on the Internet, and that is "taking over the world."
