(Note: you may have already seen this -- I moved from another thread on Chrome's beta.)

Although Firefox is clearly the preferred browser of the two here on the site, a lot of my friends have been switching to Chrome. Lifehacker just posted an interesting article comparing them: Why I’ve Switched From Chrome to Firefox 4.

For those users who may have heard about the Google Chrome integrated adblocking service, it was of course too good to be true.

It was supposed to "strip out ads that provide bad experiences for users" (WSJ.com) but really it's just a way for "Google to crush its few remaining competitors by pre-installing an ad zapper that it controls to the most common web browser. That’s a great way for a monopoly to remain a monopoly."

To all/everyone following this post ... regarding Midas's comment above :

All customized settings (including extensions) get lost - on most chromium-based browsers - not only when You copy the potable browser to another PC, but also if You plan to use the potable browser directly from the USB stick on another PC (the moment you run the browser from the USB stick on another PC - the USB stick located customized settings are lost).

Multi-platform FOSS Alkasir (https://alkasir.com/) might be of interest to Chrome users, which it lists as a requirement...

    Alkasir allows users around the world to circumvent (bypass) censorship of URLs and simultaneously, helps keep track of patterns of URL blocking. It is predominantly used by persons in countries where there is censorship of political content such as news, opinion articles, blog entries, forum discussions, political videos, etc., but can also be used in any other country.

Alkasir latest 32 or 64-bit release for Windows (currently v0.4.7) can be downloaded from https://alkasir.com/en/index.html#download.
