    Foul!!!! IE9 was still running the maze app when Chrome was started. Chrome may be slower, but it will be even slower if another browser is competing for the same metal!

    I'm still sticking with chrome because: -It's use thumb drive friendly (Internet explorer as we all know is integrated into the os, you can't even remove IE fully) -Chrome is open source friendly, the real way ! Not the microsoft way, as in contribute to open source community only for economical reasons. (ex. linux Hyper-V support) -Chrome supports open source video formats (microsoft bought a h264 license, suckers ) -Chrome follows the standards 100% (Sorry in advance, c9 will most likely mess up the text formatting, blame microsoft for their crappy software)
