    Really, Chrome has become quite buggy, unstable and insecure in recent builds. Alot of people are expressing more interest in Firefox and Explorer again because they simpley work.

    You and I must be using two completely different browsers both called Chrome then... IE its usual unexciting self and Firefox has more bugs than the Insect house at London Zoo. Chrome meanwhile is rock solid and fast.

    Have to disagree my 70 year old Mum and Dad use Chrome due to its simplicity and conformation to standards.

    I've been using it for years and it just keeps getting better.

    Every-time I load up IE9, which I have to in work every now and then as some sites use proprietary functionality (activex etc), it sends a shudder down my spine.
