Boring question…whats the best internet browser?
To expand: minimal and keeps out of my way, but doing lots of synchronisation between devices (I use my phone, a laptop at home and five different desktops at work) and with useful plug-ins running in the background. Plus, Google web apps/services are optimised for it and I use them a lot.Posted 4 years agomogrimMember
Generally use Chrome as it syncs nicely with my Ubuntu home PC, work Windows 7 machine, my Android phone and tablet. But it does crash a fair bit, particularly on Windows when being woken up after hibernation.
Might have to try Firefox as a main browser for a while.
IE’s fine, despite its past reputation.Posted 4 years agoholsterMember
I have been using Opera for a while now on my laptop, and I like the speed dial page, and the shortcuts, but I am increasingly finding that some websites aren’t compatible with it, and I often have trouble printing webpages from it.
…So does anyone have any suggestions for an alternative?Posted 4 years agoz1ppyMember
I had the misfortune to use a computer with IE on yesterday for the 1st time in ages, it was so annoyingly clunky I gave up and installed chrome, so it would play nice.
I was never an IE hater, but converted to chrome when IE started using lots of resources on a unpowered computer I owned. Much much better overall & lots of useful options like easy AD blocking [LOL @ STW filter]Posted 4 years ago

Chrome is ace. really love it when you’ve been browsing on your laptop/desktop and it automatically appears as a ‘recently browsed’ on the phone. or even better when it is a location and i don’t need to search for it again when i open up maps to navigate there (so good in the car in a rush!)Posted 4 years agojohn_drummerMember
right now I’m using Safari. I switch between this & Firefox whenever one of them brings out some new features. like moving the “frequently visited” tab from the main toolbar to being buried three clicks deep. Or like having to type in my user ID & password every time I visit http://www.jimsbeerkit.co.uk/forumPosted 4 years ago
