I was very happy to see that Chrome usage is starting to pick up… Firefox slightly dropped (presumably some users switching to Chrome), and that Internet Explorer was the lowest usage among the top 3 browsers.

I have to really say that I love and recommend Chrome. It is a sleek/fast browser with a great user experience. Every time I get someone to switch to it from Internet Explorer they are very happy with the speed in which pages load in comparison. Firefox is still great, don’t get me wrong, but as of today… I am a Chrome guy, and I love to recommend it to others.  Chrome does have a bit of a minimalist type design, which can be nice, but confusing at first, for those that are looking for the typical File | Edit | View types of buttons, but you can quickly get used to it. It just takes a little getting used to, to figure out where all the options/menus are.

If you’re a web designer or developer, I do prefer Firefox’s firebug plugin over Chrome’s version of it, so I tend to still do my debugging, and CSS manipulation with Firefox, but for all other browsing I go with Chrome.

That’s just my 2 cents on browser choice 🙂 Hopefully Chrome will continue to keep climbing in popularity!

What My Clients Say

Karin - Hope and Future

Brent has always been very prompt and generally exceeds our expectations with his work. His maintenance fee is very reasonable. I strongly recommend him!  We get many compliments on our beautiful web site!


I contacted Krueger Web Design and Brent did everything.  He setup a test site with the changes so we could verify everything was correct before we transferred from my old hosting provider.  During the setup and conversion Brent was extremely professional and responsive. He responded to any issues the same day.
