Watching the browser wars unfold has been interesting. Mozilla Firefox was possibly the king only a few years ago, whereas now it seems Google Chrome has taken much of their market shares. For those who use Chrome it may have some bugs but ultimately runs much quicker and scales better than Firefox.
