    For me, the lack of smooth scrolling. Without smooth scrolling, it's very confusing to read which line you already are!

    I switched from IE to FF when it was the big FF 3.0 download day stuff.
    I'm now used to FF and I don't have a right feeling with google, so I'll stick with FF.

    Went from Chrome to IE9 because of the integration with Windows 7.
    Its like point over the browser icon and seeing all open tabs. :)

    I stopped using Chrome because it has lots of bugs with some sites, it's overall fast but I preferred Mozilla, especially the nighties with daily updates :D

    Because I like the add-ons for Firefox. Various ones in combination give me the exact results I want. I tried Chrome but felt like I was reinventing the wheel.

    I use opera because of the built in popup blocker. Chrome can block all popups only with a buggy addon, same for firefox.

    Same here! Have been using FF3.6, will go for FF4.0 when all my addons are compliant with FF4.0, however did not like the removal of the Ctrl+E shortcut.

    Google Chrome is probably has the most beautiful/simplest interface (compared to IE9 & FF4).

    But the lack of Smooth scrolling and Download manager is preventing me from making it my default browser o_O

    there's nothing i find to stop using chrome.
    it must be the safest browser for windows cause of its sandbox technology.

    Take a look at SRWare Iron (sorry, can't post a link - not enough posts yet).

    It's pretty much the same as Chrome but without any of it's privacy issues.

    Settings, have it ask where you want to save it and you can also rename it (im sure of)

    I tried it while FF x64 is in limbo development-wise but didn't like it. Use IE9 and FF minefield x64.
