I've been using version 6 for quite a while now and it only gets better and better! I don't even have Firefox installed anymore.

Yep, I got 6 and I use the Canary Build as well for testing.

Still got a copy of Firefox, Opera, Safari, IE for site testing but don't use it for anything else.

I still have FF for some things, but I won't allow IE on any of my machines :x

I'm loving the range of Extensions for Chrome, they just keep getting better and better imo. They need a good irc client thou :P

Yep, I'm sure they will come. Google recently just opened up more of their API which should allow for a lot more useful Extensions etc.

Still Chrome is 4th out of the majors but it's catching up. These are the last 30 days stats on the main site.

Firefox 1,535,478 (40%)
Internet Explorer 1,190,833 (31%)
Safari 514,889 (13%)
Chrome 421,726 (11%)
Opera 90,602 (2%)
Mobile 17,195 (<1%)
Jakarta Commons-HttpClient 12,665 (<1%)
OneRiot 3,490 (<1%)
Java 1,494 (<1%)
Flock 1,237 (<1%)

FYI: We hope in the next month to have a Firefox and Safari Extension for SpoilerTV :)

I'm not a fan, prefer X-Chat :P

I'm hoping so cos the few they have are next to useless, you may as well just use Mibbit directly if you want the chat in a browser :(
