I am presently writing this on Google Chrome.
I am Downloading 11.04 on Google Chrome
and it is much faster than on firefox,
Chrome seemed to pick up a local Mirror when Firefox started to download from Melbourne...
I am so used to ordering a CD till now.:D

Not sure the relevance of this... I find the torrents are faster than any browser you could hope to ever find. If you need maximum speed out of Firefox, you could use the addon DownloadThemAll and pull parts of each file from different mirrors which can be considered similar to how torrents work (multiple part download only without the upload/sharing).

Because, chrome using spdy.

Torrent could be gr8, but it exploits HDD too much.

BTW, your privacy belongs to google.

I am just using nightly 6.0a1 with no tracking mode.
When gigabit ethernet comes to us, it will be meaningless after all.
