I have also noticed that Chrome tends to be faster than Firefox, even WITH ad-blocker plus preventing the loading of all the advertisements. Somehow, I still prefer to avoid all the ads. Eventually if the speed difference was great enough I would give in and jump on Chrome, but it's nowhere near that point for me yet.
When is there going to be an Ad-Blocker Plus for Chrome??? Somehow I doubt this will happen, given how much Google makes from internet advertising.
OK, I may stand corrected.
Here is a link for blocking ads in Chrome
. I'll hafta test this out.
