Taking the Dive with Google Chrome

Submitted by on January 10, 2011 – 6:42 am

So, for those who kept up with my Facebook or on IRC would know that I’ve gotten new parts and built a new system to replace my old and very out dated system. But what I also did was switched from Firefox to Google Chrome just to test it (still went and gotten Firefox installed) but something’s wrong… I’ve actually gotten a custom to Google Chrome. I’m a hardcore Firefox fan, I tried Google Chrome when it first came out in 2008 and didn’t like it because it reminded me too much of Internet Explorer and tried Opera but didn’t had the ad blocking filters that I’m looking for. Since I reinstalled the OS and having to do everything from the beginning I decided to go ahead and try Google Chrome again (with one of there beta releases) and was just blown away with how far they’ve gotten within the couple years.

First off, it doesn’t remind me of Internet Explorer anymore, which is very good, second, the ad blocking software that I know and love on Firefox (AdBlock Plus) has a similar add-on for Chrome which made this jump to the top of the list. What’s also great about Google Chrome is how fast it is. Mind you that I’m using a pretty slow hard drive (in fact, my hard drive is what’s current keeping my system getting at a perfect 7.3 as the lowest rating, my hard drive is at 5.3 while processor/ram is at 7.5 and graphic (both gaming and general) is at 7.3) and a click of the shortcut for Chrome opened in a blink of an eye.

Firefox will still have a place in my heart but my new love is now will always be forever Google Chrome now~.
