I've been a Firefox user for some time, but I finally moved to Google Chrome. While I know there are kinds of posts and in depth articles on the web about Chrome, I moved because Firefox could not handle my old Microsoft technology sites. I had heard that Chrome was the fastest browser, but why move from an open source friend like Firefox? After all, I had already left Microsoft's browser years ago.
In short, I.E. Tabs (a Firefox add-in) was not working with SharePoint. While basic SharePoint pages loaded, when I invoked advanced SharePoint functionality, crash. Obviously I tried upgrades of I.E. Tabs. No go.
Thus, I moved to Chrome for these reasons:
- It's extension for I.E. Tabs used in conjunction with SharePoint works
- Chrome is fast
- The user interface is logical and maximizes my viewable content
- I can easily synchronize bookmarks between many computers
Click upon the screenshot given below to maximize my Chrome annotations which gives an example of IE Tabs in use. Normally the address bar showing would not be present (I.E. Tabs would be turned off) While Firefox should do items 1 through 4, Chrome does it better.
More Google on my computer. I hope they "do no evil"
