    It's lightweight with a very minimal UI.

    Whenever I use Firefox / IE now I can't help but think that the UI is too large.

    I can't believe how long it feels like those are loading a page compared to Chrome. :S

    Startup speed is great! Especially since I have a slow system! Other than that, there is so much screen real estate (to the point that I ALMOST don't want tool strip extensions. ALMOST! ) It looks good, especially w/ Stamga's Aero Theme. Overall though, the speed is a selling point for me.

    I'm there with you too. I love the start up speed, Firefox takes FOREVER!
    And also the screen space, Firefox is covered with toolbars and what not! And the speed is AMAZING!!!

    Firefox can start faster with the Firefox Preloader, but it's not part of Firefox.

    Yes, I tried this when using Firefox, but I seemed to me that Mozilla missed out what people really wanted, a shame when you use the browser with the most extensions available is that you must use an extension (kind of) to speed up the basics (i.e. loading)
