You Should Be Using Opera Instead Of Chrome, And Other Facts – Digg

It’s difficult to tear yourself away from Google. Even if you don’t use an Android phone, there’s a good chance you use Google search, Gmail, Google Docs and the like. And also Chrome. And if you use Chrome, there’s a good chance that you hate it, because Chrome is a massive resource hog that slows your computer down to a standstill just because you dared to have two YouTube videos open at once.

But it doesn’t have to be like this. As Motherboard’s Jason Koebler writes, there is a better way, and that way is Opera, a browser that blends the openness of Chrome (you can still have extensions!) with the not-eating-all-your-RAM part of other browsers. Half the Digg office switched to Opera this week and yeah, we’re all happier.
