    I just love Google Chrome so much. Its seriously the best web browser out there IMO. Firefox was the best until Chrome came along with its superior speed and usability and now that it has ad-ons its even better. Here is a list of the ad-ons that I use.



    AdBlock

    AdBlock + Element Hiding Helper

    Autopager

    Facebook Photo Zoom - enlarges facebook photos when you hover the mouse over a photo.

    FastestChrome - when you highlight text it gives a small popup of buttons that I have set to search the text in google or youtube. makes searching so much faster.

    Forecastfox Weather

    Google Mail Checker Plus - gives a little icon in the toolbar that lets you know when you have gmail.

    Lockerz Organization & Redemption Checker - alerts me when the lockerz site changes like when a redemption begins.

    Smooth Scroll

    Stop Autoplay For YoutTube - makes youtube vids pause at the first second so I can let them buffer before I watch them.






    If you have an ad-on that you would like to share go ahead and post it!

    Defiantly the best browser, I've used it since the first day of the beta back in 2008.

    The extensions I use are

    Google Tasks - Use it with Geetaks for iPhone
    Facebook for Google Chrome
    Google Mail Checker - Very useful
    Quick Tab - I usually have loads of tabs open
    Chrome TV Planner
    Adblock
    Docs PDF/PowerPoint Viewer - No need to install Adobe's bloatware
    Facebook photo zoom

    (Disclaimer: I made tv planner and quick tab)

    I'd use anything, except Internet Explorer, over Firefox.

    Nothing is worse than Internet Explorer. It's the slowest, It's the least standard compliant, and it's had the most security issues.

    EDIT: Also I'm not a Firefox hater.

    Just because you don't like a browser doesn't mean it's the worst browser in existence.
