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.

2.0 Beta Chrome On Windows, Chromium On Linux 258

AlienRancher writes "Google launched this morning a new beta version of Chrome 2.0: 'The best thing about this new beta is speed — it's 25% faster on our V8 benchmark and 35% faster on the Sunspider benchmark than the current stable channel version and almost twice as fast when compared to our original beta version.' Other enhancements include user script support (greasemonkey-like) and form auto-fill." And reader Lee Mathews adds news of the open source version, Chromium, on Linux: "Not only has Chromium gotten easier to take for a test drive thanks to the personal package archive for Ubuntu Chrome daily build team, but development on the browser is also progressing nicely. Despite being a very early build, Chromium on Linux feels solid and boasts the same blazing speed the Windows users have been enjoying for months."

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%.
