    It just feels to me like we could be trading a bunch of monkeys for one 1000kg gorrilla.

    Well it looks like the first shots have been fired, straight at adobe and ms.

    Even if you're not a conspiracy theorist, there's no reason to use Chrome if you mainly relay on Google as your search engine. It's worrying enough that Google gives money to the Mozilla Foundation, ensuring even more people use their search engine. I mean, what's the next thing, the Google Operating System?

    IceCat isn't all too bad, though.

    All in all, I don't think speed was ever Firefox's greater appeal. If you're looking for speed, there are plenty of excellent browsers that deliver information quickly (e.g. elinks). But if you want to use Adblock, Flashblock, and numerous extensions that make browsing comfortable, nothing beats Firefox.
