I still use Firefox. Everytime I try to move to Chrome I end up being disappointed. Usually w/ the lack of comparable extensions. Sure it takes a couple of hundred of MB of ram, but when you have 8/16GB, does it really matter? Plus Chrome isn't exactly memory efficient either.

im not a big fan of IE, Use to have to deal with a lot of malware/trojan issues for friends and family and it left a sour taste in my mouth. As far as my preference between firefox or chrome, I'm neither here nor there. the only extensions i like to use are compatible with both browsers, i suppose the only reason why I've been using Firefox is that I'm just too lazy to change haha. However, I find that (especially now more then ever for some reason) Firefox does eat up a lot of my ram, i think though its an issue with flash player having memory leaks (i could be very wrong in this statement, haven't exactly looked into it too much).

I use FF and barely brake 1 mb of memory I have 65 tabs open at any given time and I use ghostery and then the typical plugins like ESN/ flash/Java /Google earth . I've used FF for as long as I have used a PC other then Netscape back in the day and it has been solid for me other then the odd time I decided to play with waterfox or Palemoon
