Firefox 29: Looks Just Like Chrome Now

Firefox 29

I just upgraded to Firefox 29, the latest version. Well, it’s more like it upgraded itself. Although I like the newer cleaner look, it’s harder and harder to tell the difference between it and Chrome, except the latter is still seemingly snappier.

Today, that climb continues and has some tech observers wondering whether Chrome could do the unthinkable and topple perennial leader Internet Explorer from atop the browser rankings.

Senh: I think as long as Internet Explorer comes with Windows, it's hard to beat.
