I tried chrome quite a while back and was not impressed. Maybe it's time for another look.

I like Firefox with addons that block ads and get rid of those hidden LSO cookies, plus Firefox itself gives me extended control over cookie settings that I haven't found on either IE or Chrome.

I agree Chrome has worked well for me also. Went from IE to mostly Firefox, then started having some issues with Firefox so went to Chrome, it was noticeably faster. However, I had a web site up with a javascript slideshow and for the longest time I couldn't figure out why it wasn't working on Chrome when it worked on every other browser I tried. Finally figured out something needed tweaked in the coding for it to work through Chrome. I am not as happy with how the Chrome browser works on my android phone though

An outdated (or even a current) browser can have security holes, which do get exploited a lot.

Anyway, I don't think chrome is lightweight at all (and it's not really made to be), for lightweight I strongly prefer Midori.

Chrome works for me. At least it doesn't hog up all the RAM like IE is so prone to do.

My answer to the topic is "Yes, Chrome is the best browser today."
Tried every browser, was using opera for a long time, but it came to an end.
Chrome fast, versatile, tiny and simple, that is what i want to see in browser

IMO Chrome is best - came to my rescue. Drive is great also.

I have been using Chrome exclusively and find it is the best for my use. Very quick and lightweight. I have only found one site that works with Firefox and not Chrome, but the site (Macy's) is horrible anyway. I like the way the tabs work, highlighting something, right-clicking and have the browser search Google.. etc.

Firefox is also an excellent browser. The only one i would not recommend is Microsoft IE.
