I am a Firefox user since the early days. It's simply the best browser out there for all platforms :) Version 15.0.1 is very fast and stable. No problems at all. Users who complain about high CPU probably need to review/update some of their add-ons.

Btw, try the new "click-to-play" feature (available since v14). It's incredible how the net can be really fast without those crappy flashes and other plugins enabled by default. And with Adblock installed, browsing the net is... awesome :P

Used to have Sophos AV installed but the latest versions were giving my Macbook some slowdowns, specially while browsing the net and copying files. So, I've decided to try Avira again. Must say that this version is working pretty well. Very light and stable. No issues so far. Seems they've really improved since their first releases.

And yes, Mac users need an AV. There are no viruses but there are trojans, rootkits, java exploits and other kind of malware that affects ALL operating systems. It's wise to have some extra protection.

I can't see any difference between this distro and the official Chrome stable release from Google. Both have Adobe Flash Plugin and Chrome PDF Viewer. The only thing missing is the Google Software Update Agent. Or is there anything else I might not be seeing?

The Google Software Update Agent is a background service that automatically updates Chrome. In this version of Chromium, there is a menu option that checks for updates (as it is said in the FreeSMUG website, they've added Sparkle framework to check for updates) but it's not an agent/service.

Anyway, guess it's the only relevant difference...
