I keep halting in Google crome when I use LJ, it seems to work fine in my old IE, why?

Keeps getting this window saying ‘page not answering’....

HELP!

That’s weird, I use Crome and have had no problems.

I went and tried Winders Exploder and could tell no difference.

I’ve switched to Mozilla on my phone for similar reasons.

I use Google Chrome exclusively and have no problems. Are you using the most up-to-date version?

I have had problems with Chrome too. And it crashes the computer.
BuTTTTT it loads way faster than Firefox. So for now, I am continuing with Chrome.
I have only been using chrome for 3 or 4 months. I rejected it earlier for too many issues.

In the FWIW department, you should ask your friendly computer repair man their opinion of chrome. The way I understand it, it is one of the more hazardous browsers to use. I would explain why, but I didn’t memorize any of the computer jargon. Bottom line, I quit and its better. Chrome exports your info and puts their own little “virus” of sorts on your machine. At least that’s how I understood it.

I concur with John2005’s concerns.

I use Seamonkey. I don’t expect you to, because it’s weird.

I also run no-script which nixes Javascripts on all pages unless I
give them permission to run.

Opera is pretty cool. Check it out.

Don’t be a hater. Just stick with IE. ;-)

Seriously, I have found that if you keep those blasted self downloading toolbars off of IE (Bing, Google, Ask etc.), then it is a very stable browser. That is not just my opinion either. It has been independently verified. I can’t find the link right now so you’ll just have to trust me on that.. ha ha!

I found that Chrome worked better on XP than IE though. And it’s definitely better than Firefox for speed. Unfortunately XP will be unplugged by the end of next week. It’s the end of an era.

I did find a link that suggests IE11 is probably the most secure browser ever:

And before that.. IE9:

I solved the problem, the I had no video in youtube, then reinstalled Flash, had a problem with conflict, uninstalled flash only from the crome dir and now it seems to rum…
Lovely and simple!
I am sometimes really worried we trust computers to run this world.

Underdog, good for you.. you can use IE.. Me I am not a MS fan. IE the most secure? Not a chance. I don’t care what the reviewers on ZDNET say.

IE has been nothing but trouble. I like Firefox, but appreciate the speed that chrome has brought.
