I’d really be most interested to hear why you personally prefer Chrome to
Firefox and why you seem not to use IE 9. I’m an oldie, just reverted to Firefox
again, and I’m quite happy with it after a year or so with Chrome. I’m asking
simply for my own edification.
In this excerpt from
Answercast #53, I look at the current state of the top three browsers: IE9,
Chrome, and Firefox.

I’ve used all three. Today, in all honesty, use whichever one is most
comfortable for you:
Chrome, Firefox, and IE 9 I now consider to be all roughly equivalent when it
comes to things like security and functionality. There are pros and cons to
each. They’re minor nits.
I personally find Chrome a little bit more streamlined. A little bit faster
on some sites.
I didn’t use IE for many years because to be honest, IE 7 and IE 8 both
had a long way to go with respect to security.
Firefox definitely overtook them for a long time. My experience with Firefox
right now is that it’s tending to get a little bit slow, a little bloated.
Google being the new one on the block seems to be, for now at least,
somewhat more streamlined, somewhat faster.
Use what you like
It all really does boil down to personal preference. Like I said, today I
really have no problems with people using any of the big three: IE 9 (making
sure it’s version 9), Firefox, or Google Chrome.
