Both Google and Apple should just give up on web browsers. Neither of them can beat Firefox (let alone IE) for market share, despite the fact that they give their browsers away for free. They been trying for years, but nobody gives a crap. Firefox serves the needs of anyone who doesn't like IE.
it also consistently manages to be the least secure browser on the planet.

i honestly hate google chrome, i find it to be so minimalistic that it circles back into just being obtuse

In my opinion it has a lot more useful intuitive default features than the competitors. When I sit down at IE or Firefox they feel so crowded and unwieldy. Favorite feature is definitely the type a few characters and hit tab to access search for the specified site.

In other menus chrome has a ridiculous amount of options and complexity. The included developer tools (inspect element on context) are especially impressive.

i'm one of like five people using opera, have been for years. i've always found it to strike the ideal balance between usable space and intuitive function. and, as usual, it paves the way for the other companies to march behind. tabbed browsing, mouse gestures and on and on.. i think most people think firefox "invented" these things.

Man slashdot really has gone downhill too. Their site design is abhorrent, many features don't work, comments and rating systems are nearly entirely bugged since the last "overhaul"

Same with Digg v4. Ugh! Blue's News site is still good.
