Chrome vs. Lightning  
Google have come up with a brilliant advertisement for their Chrome browser based on footage shot at 2,700 FPS comparing the speed at which Chrome loads with three amusing set-ups including an electrical arc. Definitely worth a watch and, for what it's worth, it's worth giving Chrome a look. It may not yet have the same range of add-ons that Firefox does, but it's simple and lightweight, and the tab management is implemented really rather well.

I do actually notice the speed improvement, especially with Java stuff. Occasionally it doesn't work with some websites (ogame) but I use it most of the time. Especially useful for people using netbooks or anything with a small screen as it has much less clutter at the top.

Re: Chrome
Absolutely. The mini toolbars theme in Firefox is pretty decent, but Chrome is more lightweight and thus gains the edge for netbook use.
