Chrome vs. Firefox

Difference Between Chrome And Firefox

It’s getting some browsers on the market the other day, so what would you choose?

The most common web browsers today are Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera and now Google Chrome.

The differences are perhaps not so great between them, but they are very much present. Some show the content better than others. Some are simply too large and uses more system resources than strictly necessary. Internet Explorer for its part has long been entirely in a poor class, but even if the latest version is applicable under any doubt that there is no respect for web designers who use it.

However, what has been a favorite in the geek world for a while is Mozilla Firefox. The explanation is that Firefox is stable; it displays web pages in a good way. It is convenient to use and it can be configured so it is desirable for users with special needs. Unfortunately, Firefox has been a little big and clumsy, it uses little bit much with system resources and it is cluttered design. The advantage over Wave, however, has been that it was not possible to install additional packages or extensions for Chrome. Additional packages have included been what got me to wear with Firefox as long as I have done. They are practical because they  let you remove advertising from web pages, check your mail for you, let you download media content from websites without a lot of hassle, etc.

Despite this, I opted for a little while back to go over to Google Chrome. Jag was mainly tired of Firefox was eating up my memory when I was up many tabs at once. And the whole idea of tabs is that you should be able to have several websites up at once.

The installation of Chrome was painless and Chrome imported all history and bookmarks from Firefox. It also includes the bookmarks menu at the top. That story is imported makes, for example, that when I open facebook.com, Then the facebook as suggestions as I begin to write. Thus, I press “arrow down” and “enter,” and I open my facebook with four or five keystrokes. This works fairly similar in the two browsers .

Disadvantages of Chrome:

Those who have used Firefox for a while know that if you type a keyword into the address field, then open Firefox the page as it is most likely that you requested. If there are not any obvious side you are looking for, open google.com instead.

Chrome does not have this feature. When you type a word in the address bar without http:// or. Com el so Google Chrome instead. However, it is very easy to add the same functionality as Firefox. Just press the shift key at the top right corner, choose options, and press ma (button next to the “default search”). Then add a search with address.

And then change the default search to this, so Chrome will give you the most relevant hit on par with Firefox. But in addition to this you can add other search engines as you want, as long as you have the address as needed, adding to% s where the keywords should be placed.

When you change or add search engines for Chrome, you can select “keyword.” The genius here is that if you have the keyword “wiki” on Wikipedia, then Chrome searching on Wikipedia if you write the wiki (and space). Address field works, thus:

The clear-cut benefit of this is that you only need a text field in the internet browser.

Next disadvantage for Chrome is that with extensions. On the other hand, Chrome built-in “Developer tools”. This means we do not have extensions like Firebug, etc. Outside of that there are extensions of the way, and they are already available for Chrome Beta (as it is already possible to use extensions with Chrome, even though the selection is smaller, and the services are not fully developed)

Much more negative about Chrome, I can not think of. We can either go to positive:

1. Chrome is minimalist and simple design. It looks like someone has emptied a soup of words and objects beyond the screen. (I say not necessarily that FF do it, though) Anyway, Chrome powerful and functional.

2. Each tab runs as own process. There have been asked this in various tech blogs, but even I learned a positive effect of this. I do not know how it works, but the result is that the tab you have open appear faster than it would in Firefox. However, you may find that it takes some time to open a tab that you have not used in a while. Whatever the result is Chrome doer significantly better than Firefox on netbooks and even older computing systems.
