Advantages and Disadvantages of Chrome
Speedtests between Firefox and Chrome
Dowload = 4873 kb / s
Upload = 491 kb / s
Download = 4961 kb /s
Upload = 488 kb / s
Note : Chrome loaded pages slightly quicker than firefox, and flash ran more smoothly on Chrome on my much older pc
Firefox also in multiple speed tests showed slightly faster upload speeds, but Chrome went over 5000 kb/s, which firefox never did at all during any tests
Advantages of Chrome
- nice simple GUI
- Faster than firefox (speed and start up time)
- Releases memory that was previously being used quicker than firefox
- Multiple tabs make new processes, which if using a decent computer, allow you to close a crashed tab without shutting down the whole browser, which makes it much more stable.
- easier to read address bar (highlights the main page address)
- more secure than firefox
- Non customizable GUI
- hogs more memory than firefox
-not great at offline page caching compared to Firefox
- not many add ons and toolbars
- still in early beta form, where as firefox has been out for a while
- Firefox has more community that uploads add ons and has better tech support
