One day after the initial release of Chrome, Google's new browser is one of the hot topics on the Web. As usual when Google releases something new, you can hear many voices hail out loud, that the world is going to be a better place from now on.
Fortunately, there are also critical voices from people who dig a little deeper and don't believe that Google does everything out of pure altruism. Labeling them as conspiracy theorists may be fun for Google employees, but it shows how serious they are taking their users' privacy concerns.

Firefox is a great Web browser. It offers good Web standards support and is open source. As a Web developer who regularly creates templates/themes based on Photoshop designs, Web standards compliance is a very important aspect and one of the reasons I hate Internet Explorer. As a person who believes in the spirit of open source, it is also important that Firefox is open source software.
The speed of Web page rendering is not the biggest strength of Firefox, there are other browsers that render pages more quickly, but the most important aspect, that makes Firefox incomparably useful are the free extensions available.
