Default Chrome - the best browser?

Has anyone else slowly come to the conclusion that Chrome may very well be the best, most lightweight, most compliant, most trouble-free browser out there?

It may be (a little) faster but I'll stay with Firefox.
Not sure what you mean by most compliant.

It took Google a while to get competitive with its browser. Or maybe it took us a while to warm up to it. In any case, I think it's there.

It is by far my favorite for web development. It has nice tools.

For general browsing I prefer Firefox with Adblock and NoScript.
For Flickr and a couple of others I upload to, I have to use Chrome as they won't work with FF.

I moved over to Chrome (from Firefox) on most of my Windows PC's about a year ago. Now that its also available for Linux and Macintosh I have switched to it there as well.

Yep, I made the move as well away from Firefox about 6-8 months ago. Very happy with the results! Faster, smoother, and easier access to all of the Google portfolio. I am an Android user, so I have lots of connections to Google (Gmail, Google Calendar, etc.).
