I never got chrome, back when it first came out people were talking about everything you do is "monitored" (I use that term loosely) for usage statistics.

Life is normally too short to purposely seek out things you hate, but apparently that rule doesn't apply on the Xbox One board.

I enjoy the extra screen real estate that Chrome has.

Chrome dev tools beg to differ. Firebug is a beast in itself but is an ugly beast compared to the sexy, cool Chrome counterparts.

As far as regular browsing goes.Chrome still wins by default. What I would like to see is a head to head with the plugins.

When compared to Firefox 29, there isn't a huge difference.

Firefox on the left, Chrome on the right. You can see the area used to display the webpage is only a tiny little bit bigger in Chrome. Just saying :)

Hm, nice.

Though the real reason I switched from Firefox to Chrome was because my Firefox started having issues with Flash, and would crash my computer if I tried to load a Youtube video. I couldn't fix it, and Chrome worked, so I switched. This was back in...2010, I think.

EDIT: Also, does Firefox still use a crap ton of memory compared to Chrome?

Both browsers use a crap ton of memory, Firefox just has it all in one process while Chrome spreads it out across a bunch of processes (one per tab and then extensions add some processes as well).
Currently on my computer Firefox is using 996 MB while all the Chrome processes add up at least to 1.1 GB (I stopped adding up after it went beyond what Firefox is using).

I switch between the two every 6 months or so. Never notice a difference in terms of browsing experience.

I beg to differ. Unless Pale moon uses a different type of memory management than FIrfox does. Although Pale moon is on the same structure as FF is... With PM I can have like 30 tabs open and use less than a gig of RAM. With Chrome 3-5 tabs equals like 1.6+GB of RAM. So Chrome uses at least 2x the amount of RAM than FF does. Unless in the later versions they decided to increase the memory usage for whatever stupid reason.

I opened up the first 50 topics on this board with their own tabs in Chrome. It took 1.561 GB.
