Firefox 3.6 Released, But I'm Not Switching From Chrome

Mozilla today released Firefox 3.6, which, as I reported back in November when the popular open-source browser was released in beta, sports improved performance, personas (the ability to easily switch between different skins for your browser), and updated support for web standards, including for the Web Open Font Format (WOFF). You can download it now from Mozilla for Windows, Mac and Linux.

As much as I like Firefox, I have to say that on my Mac it’s been relegated to second choice behind my new favorite: Google Chrome. Even though Firefox 3.6 is pretty quick, Chrome has blistering speed, and I love the fact that in Chrome a crash in one tab does not kill the entire browser. Chrome doesn’t yet have the massive extension ecosystem that makes Firefox so useful (and is the reason why I will probably never uninstall it), but it’s going to take a lot of improvement to the speed and stability of Firefox to get me to switch back and make it my primary browser again.

How about you? Do you still use Firefox, or have you switched to Chrome?
