    Chromium vs Firefox

    I have read on numerous ocassions that the Chromium browser is better than Firefox. Well i have tried it an cant for the life of me see why. Its slower to load. Unable to open some pages. I know they say personal choice but there is no comparason. Or is it just me

    Just you probably...i run Google Chrome...it's my favorite browser and it's fast and snappy...pages load in quite normally here...and it has the latest flash which firefox doesn't have...sounds like you are having a problem there though i can't imagine what it would be...

    Chrome != Chromium and now with both dropping plugins they are pretty crippled feature wise. In addition Chromium is buggy and poorly maintained.

    I have Chrome, Chromium, and Firefox but only use FF and Chrome. Chromium is only here as a backup if needed. Perhaps Chromium makes a bad backup. I wonder what else I could use..........

    Have you tried Opera lately? Also Midori, Maxthon, Epiphany and Flock.

    It's not feature matter for me.
    Which is faster or which has more add-ons is not critical issue.
    They are almost same.
    Who is behind or related with specific browser...It's very important.
    FF is with real open source community. So I love it.

    Re: Chromium vs Firefox

    The common complaint about Firefox has been that it's slower. At one time that may have been true, i don't know that it's true any longer. I've been using Netscape/Firefox since I.E. 5 so familiarity enters into it I'm sure. Chrome does have the benefit of current version flash if that matters - it doesn't to me. Firefox' add-ons is worth more to me than Chrome's benefits. Different strokes for different folks and all that.
