    I tried google chrome at work for a month. I've decided I don't like it. It's supposed to be faster and more stable. Relative to firefox, I found neither of these. Chrome crashes more often than firefox used to, and tabs take a long time to come back if I've not seen them in a while. I think this is because they're getting swapped out. Which is windows' fault, but I don't care. Firefox doesn't swap part of itself out the same way, so I'm switching back.
