    I find myself switch back between Chrome and Safari. Chrome scrolling seems slower, and uses more CPU power. And of course there's the battery life, which isn't as good as Safari. Functionally, I prefer Chrome, but like Safari's efficiency and elegance...

    Chrome is our choice at work for its speed stability and huge inventory of highly useful Extensions. Personally the new MacBook I have also runs Chrome wonderfully. I've relied on Chrome for my 15" MBPr, 13" MBA and Mac Pro.

    Often when revised I try to like and use Safai, it's not bad but it pales in comparison to Chrome . If only Safari was more capable I'd use it

    I tend to use Safari for play and Chrome for work, keeping the two worlds separate. Safari doesn't do some of the work things I do quite as well as Chrome.

    Safari at home probably 80% of the time. If I'm at work I go back and forth depending upon what I need at the time.
