Her favorite color is Chrome.

After almost six years as a faithful Firefox user, I have become a turncoat.

No. Don't worry. I didn't go back to Internet Explorer. I'd subject myself to just about any kind of torture before I'd go back to Internet Explorer.

I made the move to Google Chrome.

I tried it for the first time a few months ago and have highly recommended it for people who would mostly consider themselves as the average internet user. It's super-fast and secure and doesn't have the startup lag time that Firefox does (sidenote: the reason Firefox is slow to load is because it checks for updates at startup so that the software and plugins are always up-to-date, which is why Firefox is more secure than Internet Explorer. If there's a security issue, they fix it and the next time you open the browser that fix is detected and installed.)

The thing that held me back from switching is that Firefox spoiled me to some of my plugins.

Namely my Xmarks plugin (formerly Foxmarks). With this plugin my bookmarks are synchronized between my work computer and my home computer (or any other computer I log into xmarks on).

Now Xmarks has added an extension for Chrome, which means that I can synchronize between multiple computers AND multiple browsers.

Now that Chrome has all but one of my 3 most frequently used plugins, I've made the switch.
