Chrome? I personally like it actually. It's very easy to switch themes now. I use the gian smiley face.

Quit firefox. Chrome FTW.

Never liked the personas, some of them just didn't look right even though I liked the main banner. Ruined the experience for me.

The last time i tried Chrome it had some serious issues with flash videos. And since flash videos are all over the web i rolled back to Firefox.

I dunno, Firefox slowed down on me like crazy. Chrome is still blazing fast and I've had no problems with it at all. I want to sex it up.

Somewhat I have to agree. FireFox is fast, but in some ways (many tabs or playing flash) it becomes CPU hungry. While Chrome is faster, I prefer using FireFox because the huge database of plugins.

I've only ever seen my Firefox use up five hundred mb, but that's an extreme scenario for me, and it involved a lot of flash. Addons don't really use that much memory. In general, my Firefox peaks at 200 mb use, and I use a ****load of addons (awesome, awesome addons, which keep me from switching to Chrome or Opera, which are significantly faster browsers)

I don't care for personas though. It's like Firefox is trying to be something it's not (good looking).

To make it different than IE's "themes" I believe.

@fortnox:

Basically it's like this: The longer Firefox runs, the more you build up its memory consumption. It starts out with roughly 100 and builds as you keep opening tabs (particularly ones with flash, java and javascript in them). Me, I close down my Firefox so often I don't notice the memory consumption (I don't have 1000 mb for it to use, maybe it'd eat more if I had more ram?).

What the hell is the difference between a theme and persona then?

The theme changes the buttons and all while the persona changes only the background pic.

You know as well as I do that it's just a matter of time before the "personas" starts changing buttons too. And then the raptors will attack.

I use NASA nightlaunch, which is a really nice looking black theme, and it was only like...350kb large. So really, there is not much of a point to these persona's.
