I prefer Waterfox/Firefox over Chrome.  When working an OTL log I like to look up IP addresses to make sure they are not in the Ukraine or China or other non local malware source.  With Waterfox/Firefox it's a simple highlight IP address, right click and "Search Google for".  With Chrome the "Search Google for" option disappears and your only option is to go to that IP address.  I have to copy the IP address, open a new google page and type it in there and then make sure I choose the non-default.  

 

I also don't like the way the search on the page works.  In W/F the search box (Ctrl + F) stays open when you change from one tab to the next and keeps your latest search showing.  I often open two copies of the same page so I can methodically go through a log on one page and search the other copy for other instances of a word or phrase.  It's a lot easier to highlight the word and hit CTRL + F then switch to the second tab and complete the search.  In Chrome you have to highlight and copy the word, CTRL + C,  then move to the other page,CTRL + F, paste it in CTRL +V.

 

I miss the search the web box too. If I need to alter the search a bit it is still there.  With Chrome I have to retype the whole thing.

 

Also I miss the ability to revisit my most common site by simply clicking the down arrow in the URL box.  With Chrome I have to waste space with a shortcut toolbar.  

 

Also like the about:config page.  Makes it easy to customize. 

 

PS Waterfox just offered me 34.0

 

PPS AdBlock Plus is available for both W/F, Chrome and even IE.  Won't use any browser without it.  http://adblockplus.org/

I was using strictly Chrome till recently. But I started to have open a lot of Tabs at a time, and Chrome is extremely memory eating. So i'm using some times Firefox.

Google Chrome 64-bits, because the 32-bits version on a 64-bits OS just eat up all your resources for nothing.

I use Google Chrome and Firefox. Both run okay, I feel tempted to try Waterfox.
