Re: which browser you prefer

When a website tells me to use a different browser, I use a different website. If a website's tech help recommends Google Chrome, I impolitely tell them no way.

Re: which browser you prefer

For a few years I used WaterFox and loved it. Only problem is they don't send out updates fast enough and a lot of sites will tell you that you need to update your browser. This was the end of WaterFox with me :(

Re: which browser you prefer

I've tried many but I seem to go back to Firefox. Chrome is faster but I wonder about the security of it. Only thing I hate about FF is when they removed the 'Yellow' folders :evil:
