Question Time

Web browsers. Love them or hate them, we need them (unfortunately). They are described as being an essential tool to our internet habits, and I suppose I can't much disagree, though I wish I could.

So here is my question: which browser is the best to use?

I've used Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari, and Opera. Personally I enjoyed using Opera, once you got used to its UI (user interface), but I had to change as blogger kept stating my browser was not supported and I needed to change to one that was - enter Google Chrome once more... grrr!

Google Chrome boasts to be one of the fastest. And it is. For the first 24 hours, then it starts slowing down, and down, and down. It was the reason why I dumped it last time.

(Edit) I used Firefox in the past and found it to be very good, but security (at the time) was questionable, which led me to look elsewhere.

Internet Explorer has its quirks and eventually begins to feel 'buggy'. Safari, well, it's ok on the Mac, but doesn't translate well (to my mind) for the PC.

Is there ANY browser out there that actually works properly?

EDIT: here is a link to a 'Top Ten' review of web browsers - How could I have forgotten Firefox! It's very informative, so hopefully some of you might also find it helpful.

  1. I use Firefox despite their constant updates. I use Chrome on occasion too, but I gave up on IE. It was always freezing up. Hubby has Safari and Firefox on his Mac.

    Try loading a couple of them and see how you like them.

    1. I understand what you're saying - I just wish I didn't have to bloat my system with different browser software though. If I could have, I'd have stuck with Opera - lovely browser, yet not supported by Blogger *sigh*.

  2. You can always remove them if you don't like them. That's what I did.

  3. I've used Firefox for a while now and prefer it over Explorer or Chrome. Haven't tried the others. Explorer I seemed to have trouble with frequently. Chrome was the slowest browser I ever ran. Firefox seems to me, a non-knowledgeable computer/internet dude, the best for what I want to do.

    1. Tim, I'd have to agree with you onthose points - just installed Firefox once again.
