The page rendering is *so* popping
that on the full-screen pron pages
I can't even turn-off my motor-boaters...

(Or the more grammer-gnat-zee correct "motors-boater")

FYI : new Firefox has a fatal security flaw;
slobber, snot and whisker-burn
all over your LCD screens.

(Or the more grammer-gnat-zee correct "LCDs-screen")

HTH.

What am I going to be impressed with? Is it noticeably speedier? Has its
format and design changed to such an extent that it's going to a pain in the
ass to get used to?

I've been using Chrome a lot recently --- per speedtest.net, Chrome is
averaging 2.5 Mb/s download but Firefox (3.5.5) averages about 1.5Mb/s. Is
there an improvement with 3.6.9?

Well, let's see if I can make it any simpler for you:
-accessing http://speedtest.net/ via firefox, download speed is rated at
1.5Mb/s.
-accessing http://speedtest.net/ via chrome, download speed is rated at
2.5Mb/s.
WTF is so hard to understand?

LOL. The dope seems to think that his bandwidth is dependent on his
browser.

This dope is always ready to learn. Please explain to this dope why the
download speedtests are consistently higher in chrome than in firefox.

If Aardvark is unable to explain it, perhaps someone else can? Thanks.

I can't think of a reason other than the Flash process involved in the
test being better suited in Chrome. Why not use the latest FF and Flash
OCX?

You may be right ---- I tried two other speedtest sites (2wire.com &
speakeasy) and there was no difference at all between chrome and firefox.
Speedtest.net consistently low measurements via Firefox may be due to how
the site itself handles Flash . . .
