Best Internet Browser
« on: October 03, 2013, 11:40:39 PM »
Google Chrome is today the most popular browser it's fast and good, every time I use Internet Explorer it makes me explode do you feel the same? Why are people still using Internet Explorer?

Because that's what shipped with their operating system.

I find that periodically when I fill out a form or such, at "enter" it wont go through on Chrome and when I do it over on IE, it does.

Best is a matter of preference. I've found that Chrome is faster and better at memory management, but Firefox has better add-ons and tab management, which for me is more important. As for IE, if you just do basic browsing, I'm not sure it's any worse; it's gotten much better over the years.

+1 Although I agree with the OP that Chrome (and as AU said, Firefox...and I'll add Opera) are all superior to IE, for a normal, non-techie user, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

For some reason lately I'm having issues with Firefox, while watching videos (YouTube, Vimeo etc.) they get really choppy. The issue is only on Firefox, it's gotten to a point where I'll usually just copy/paste the link into Chrome to watch. Anyone else experiencing this?

add extension called "open with"
Won't solve your problem but you won't have to copy paste

Thanks. Though of course I'd rather fix the underlying problem. Any ideas what could be slowing down my browser?

There's a firefox extension that will tell you how much memory each of your addons is using.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
