I have Firefox, and Internet Explorer. I have problems with both. I’m using Vista and 7, on 2 different computers. I always have a problem, no matter which way I go.

Its always a minor problem, just enough to annoy me.

Just wondering…

What is the problem? Or does that change?

I use Google Chrome with Windows 7. Its quick and reasonably bullet proof.

Google Chrome for a couple of years now I think.
Not on vista yet though, XP.

Runs fairly solid but not without its occasional crashes just like IE.

The phishing and malware detection work well as well as the pop up blocker.

I’ve ditched Firefox, then Chrome, and am now using SeaMonkey—so far, with great results !

I have been using Chrome for a while, with both XP and 7. Not a lot of frills, but far faster than anything else I’ve used.

Its stupid problems. With Firefox and Vista, when I look at the projects page, the projects on the far right are covered by the banner ads. With IE and vista, I can’t “jump to forum”, and I can’t zoom project pics.

Sea Monkey? That’s a new one to me, but I don’t get out much.

I’ll try it. Thanks!!!

Chrome was recently found to be the most difficult browser to “hack into”. As Charlie said- not a lot of frills but it does what you need.

I just downloaded Chrome as a result of the above comments. Wow – I can’t believe how much faster it runs. Even imported my favorites from IE.

I have found Goggle Chrome to be better than Firefox. Although it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of Firefox, I’ve had very few problems using it with Vista.

I’m on Chrome and love it. I’ve used it on Windows 7 and Vista 64bit and it works well on both. I use IE at work and its much slower and has more issues than Chrome. Firefox is also a decent browser though.

When you say you have problems with it can you please elaborate? Is it speed issues? Are you having issues with errors on individual web pages? Sometimes pages themselves could have javascript or other bugs in it. Also, Firefox and IE use different slightly different code so developers must code for both for them to render correctly on both. Not all do though.

I use it and I wish I has switched to Chrome sooner. Chrome is very fast and very stable. I really like how bookmarks work in Chrome.
