Abandoning Firefox for this?

So far, I'll see where it goes and see if this suits me better overall than FF did.

Never. FireFox is just too good.

Okay, so I haven't actually used Google Chrome, but FireFox is top notch nonetheless.

You get just get the stealth mode add-on for firefox. Its basically the same thing.

Why would you ever use incognito mode unless you were browsing for porn anyways? It doesn't make you any safer from viruses or trojans.

._.;

edit: the only good thing about chrome is that it uses up slightly less memory

Firefox 3.1b blows chrome out of the water anyway. So much for the "drag tab out to make new instance" lol.

I know what incognito does and doesn't do. I'm using it because I can. It's not like I'm just going around into unfamiliar territory anyway. What did you think I was expecting?

And every unwelcome DNS I've blocked with FF, there are other means of taking care of.

This is all just experimental. I haven't removed and abandoned FF completely.

All they have to do right now is fix that nasty habit of launching chrome.exe in the background with no browser window coming up.

1 point for instability. Back to FF I go, for now.

I think private browsing is included in their FireFox 3.1 beta, tho.

I would suggest Opera web browser, but it doesn't have add-ons yet.

Eh, personally, the best browser out there.
Customizable, fast, and also comes with a lot of features that you can use or not use: mouse gestures, full keyboard navigation, and more...
