    I use chrome because in chromium they took themes out of the extensions page so now I cant just click reload to see my tweaks to the theme.

    I use Iron. I guess we're all privacy hounds who don't like posting in public forums.

    But, really, I use Firefox. I find it renders more pages without problems than Chrome or Iron, and it has two things I use all the time, hotkeys/keywords and "/" (rather than ctrl-F) to search in a page.

    I'm perfectly willing to switch to the next great thing, but I don't think Chrome is it.

    For those being paranoid that Iron sends data to SRWare just like Chrome does, that is plain wrong. SRWare Iron is open source and it is like claiming Linux is spying on you like Windows does. You won't claim such a foolish thing, will ya?

    I have used Iron over a year now. I don't know why people say Iron users are privacy fanatic or paranoid. Its not about that it is the fact of someone looking at my info, account info, ect. I am sure google may not steal my account info, but I still feel it is none of there business. Browsers in the past used to always be like Iron. Thats what I like a old fashioned Browser. Why do we remove spyware from our computers? Because we like our info to be private. Having google chrome in my opinion is no different then having spyware.

    And as far as the crash information not being sent to google making Iron useless is completly false. Any crash or problem with Iron Browser is reported in the forum or by clicking a button on there website. I know its not automatic and annoying to lazy people, but you have to break a few eggs to have a good omelet

    Honestly I never had a problem with Iron crashing or any bugs with it, It has always worked without problems. I was a firefox user until they ruined it. When I got tired of Firefox crashing and its other problems. I was so glad to find a chrome based browser like Firefox that cares about privacy and protection. To me it is the new Firefox.

    I use SRWare Iron. Google (or anyone) doesn't need to be getting any info about my web activities, no matter how inconsequential it may be.

    I don't have cookies enabled either. I use exceptions for sites I want to be able to set a cookie only. I keep Firefox handy with cookies enabled for brief usage when a site that I want to view the content of once requires cookies be set.

    If this makes me "paranoid", so be it... but I choose what data goes in and out of my LAN, not anyone else.

    edit:
    I also run non-spyware-ish operating systems, such as Linux, on most systems... and any Windows boxes I am in control of run application-based 2-way firewalls, preventing any unrequested home phoning.

    Iron is the best and the fastest. Love Iron it replaced firefox for me too and I was also a die hard firefoxer. I love not having the annoying update run in the background too. All you do to update is just go to the Iron website. A browser should always let you update manual if you want to. But google always seems to want you to do what they want anymore. Google instant is a good example thats why I switched to Bing too.

    Iron is the fastest of the 3 and I like the extra privacy. You can't go wrong with Iron its unobtrusive and just a great little Browser.
