    Haha. I suppose I could also ramble on about it for a while, though. It's an easy topic to complain about, especially when my complaining takes place inside the program I'm complaining about... if I get lucky, it'll freeze while typing and pause the cursor so I get to wait for the text to show up

    I still prefer firefox over chrome, not because of it's rendering or speed or anything like that, of its ui. I find it much easier to use compared to chrome...
    What do you guys think of the ui's of each of them?

    I like the FF3 UI. I don't like the newer one. But now I must use it because my "FF3-look" plugin was disabled with the latest version update.
    I don't like the Chrome UI. I don't like the Safari UI. IE is overall ok but seems either outdated (earlier versions with bad graphics) or childish (new versions). Thus, Firefox. But now that it's moving toward Chrome, I may as well switch over at some point.


    For the record, FF is now better without the speed enhancement. Not much freezing.

    I'm still using the speed enhancement... Still the same problems I mentioned earlier... but I deal with it.
    IMHO Safari should be destroyed.... It is the worst browser out of the big 5 (In my opinion).
    <= IE8 were pretty bad. IE9 is actually pretty good!
    I only recently got Opera and I haven't used it enough to value it against the rest of the 5.

    I actually kind of like Firefox's UI asthetically...

    I don't hate Safari. But it seems kinda like a fake browser. It's like a lesser version of FF. On the other hand, it always is stable when I (rarely) use it. That's a plus, I guess. The UI is what I don't like; as a browser I guess it's fine.

    For me, I find that it's just incredibly slow.

    I have no idea about Safari on a PC and I see no reason to bother installing it (except for web developers to check compatibility). It's always pretty slow on the iPhone but that's just the iPhone compared to a computer. On my Mac, it's around as fast as FF I'd say.

    In answer to the ui question, I far prefer the ui of chrome.

    @daniel, they discontinued safari in windows, and in my opinion, it's pretty bad on both platforms.

    I used to prefer the UI of Firefox. But after all of its problems these days more or less forced me to get familiar with Chrome, I now prefer Chrome. That and the fact that the Firefox UI has in my opinion gone downhill lately, becoming more cumbersome with little or no added benefit.

    I completely agree, John, except that I haven't used Chrome enough to adjust to it. Would you still prefer the FF3 UI to Chrome's UI, or have you now been completely converted?
