I had mostly been using the Apple Safari browser up until recently, when I got tired of the constant crashing. I started using Firefox, which seemed better. When I sent out a tweet about my decision, I got a bunch of rapid fire responses from tech-savvy folks urging me to try the Google Chrome browser. I got the same suggestion from a few folks at TechShow.
I finally decided to try the Google browser a whirl. It took me awhile to get the hang of it (mostly because it's so simple) but I now find myself getting completely hooked. The only downside for me is that my favorite password manager (1Password) doesn't work yet with Chrome. So I'll just use Firefox for sites that need a password, and hope that the 1Password developers can get their plug-in to work with Chrome.
Don't ever accuse me of being an 'Apple fanboy' because I'll happily point out when Apple fails to deliver. If you are using Safari and experiencing excessive problems, try Chrome. Or get a crash helmet.
