Voted the worlds fastest browser? Do you think Usain Bolt would have been voted the worlds fastest man if we VOTED on something quantifiable like speed?
Firefox is NOT the fastest browser unless you tweak it extensively. The most recent tests that I have seen put the "Fastest Browser" in contention between Opera 10.6 and Google Chrome 6. That doesn't mean that they are better browsers.
I prefer Chrome for typical surfing because in my experience it is the quickest, however for extensive web browsing i prefer Opera because it`s bookmark, history, download/torrent client, etc... are far more accessible than on Chrome, if they`re even available for Chrome. Lastly I use Firefox because man websites that I visit require that I use either IE or Firefox and IE has been a joke for about the last 8 years.
I don`t think that any are inherently superior to the other, they simply offer different solutions that more effectively accommodate different situations.
