i might try opera. how is the privacy issue with chrome? did google allow people to disable the search feature on it that catalogs your local drive?

I can't comment on Chrome's privacy, or lack thereof. I never even looked into it; I have a Motorola Droid so Google already knows way too much about me.

Might I suggest Opera? Firefox has felt too slow for me for some time now, so I switched to Chrome. I used that for awhile, then gave Opera another whirl when 10.50 launched. It feels faster than Chrome and has some of the old favorite features that I've missed. I've been an Opera advocate for years, even if it hasn't always been my primary browser.

What helped me let go of Firefox was my decision to stop using ad blockers of any kind. Ad-block, flashblock and noscript really make Firefox, without a need for them I was left to try browsers again. Now if a site runs annoying ads, I just stop visiting it. This wasn't so hard to do once blue dropped IGN UGO, since I couldn't stand the ads and couldn't stand to stop visiting Blue's.
