Hey I'm a Microsoftie, but I've been using Chrome for months now and it's the best from a performance standpoint and the UI is nothing but clean. Sure it doesn't have a plug-in architecture that I'm aware of, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. You can host Silverlight apps if you want a rich UI experience.

No kidding. I was tired of Firefox bloat and I haven't looked back! I only use Firefox for Netflix instant viewing since they haven't implemented Silverlight to work inside Chrome. Which is really strange because I've gotten my own Silverlight apps working inside Chrome no problem.

Apple fan-bois routinely tell me that Apple is on the "bleeding edge" of innovation at all times and no one else is compared to them. I guess it's mostly marketing hype. I mean heck, when I was shopping for an MP3 player I looked at the iPod Nano and saw what they were charging for accessories like battery chargers and slipcases. Apple has always marked up their products like 500%.
