I feel Google Chrome is much better when it comes to browsing speed but have to be extra careful with Google Chrome since it tries to understand and interprete the user's clicks, thereby getting to know what the user wants and present him with line of similar ads later on.

Values define human and organizational culture, and a core set of values can become a team culture that guides the behavior of all members. To become a culture, the team must celebrate people who exemplify the group's values, inculcate new members with these values, and actively resist deviations from these tenets.
