Speed is good

That was my main reason for looking into Chrome, is that i'm tired of certain instances where Firefox is pretty laggy. Even with FasterFox Lite sometimes it's like ugh... load already. I dunno, YMMV.

Why the speed boost, is it being built off a newer codebase or something?

I use FF over Chrome because the former has color management, adblock and noscript.

I use firefox. I like it, but I mainly use it because it is what I have used forever. I have been using it pretty much since I started using the internet, which is when it came out. I have recently been thinking about trying out chrome though.

Firefox. Because its fast, reliable and some extension that I need is there. Tried Chrome but I don't like it

FF 3.6b5 for everyday browsing, and IE8 for my WAP and UPS since neither like the FF beta for whatever reason.

Ah, the joys of wide-gamut displays...

I use Opera and Firefox daily. Why 2? I have no idea.

The BEST thing about Firefox is noscript. Can't tell you how much I love it.

IE8. I refuse to use Safari, past that I've tried them all. Opera didn't feel right to me, same with Chrome. I used Firefox for a LONG time (since it was called Firebird) through 3.0, when it just got too freaking slow for me. At that point I switched to IE8 and haven't looked back - it has the tabbed browsing features I need, renders standards-compliant stuff as good as I need, and just works everywhere.

Firefox.

Reason: adblock. Fireftp is nice too.

IE8 is faster, actually.
