Going Chrome

After a long love affair with Firefox, I think I've finally switched to Chrome.

I say "I think" because, well, like my Twitter apps, I generally use whatever works best for me and am not terribly concerned with brand loyalty with free Internet apps. But for now, Chrome is my default browser.

For many years, Firefox worked best for me as a browser. But starting with FF 4.0, it began hanging more often than it used to, and some of the extensions were becoming unstable because they weren't catching up (or updating at all, leaving me with broken extensions). Firefox 5 was having the same issues. At the same time, Google Chrome became more mature and its list of add-ons and extensions got to the point where I can set up Chrome almost exactly the way I have my Firefox customized. Plus, I like Chrome's downloadable web apps like TweetDeck and Angry Birds, and that's helped push me more into the Chrome camp.

The only major extension that I'm missing on Chrome is Download Helper. So if you know of a Chrome extension that has the same usability, please leave a note in the comments.
