    Chrome
    You're not paid to think;
    A mindless worker is a happy worker,
    so shut up and do your job.

    Opera is the best with Chrome closely behind it.
    My comic suggestions: Ecchi, Martial Arts, Historical, Harem, Adventure!

    Re: The Web Browser Thread

    Anyone has any references on the torch browser? I found it a while back and I like that it has a torrent download feature included but how exactly does it compare to other browsers? Cnet would tell me its just adequate at the moment but first hand experiences are always helpful.

    Re: The Web Browser Thread

    I still use Firefox but it seems Chrome is more popular these days. Chrome seems to be the faster browser but Firefox is more stable, we actually had some problems with Chrome browsers on this site. I guess I'll stick to Firefox until major Chrome problems are fixed and I can fully customize it according to my needs.

    I stuck with Firefox for some many years until maybe just over a year ago? I slowly moved and adjusted to Chrome, mainly because of its browser speed like you say. Though I do miss Firefox's near endless customisability potential. It felt so weird having to adjust to Chrome after that, there were so many things that were different, especially when it came to this forum and posting.

    Chrome is no doubt faster, but I prefer Firefox because of customization.

    But Chrome gets a hi5 for giving Gary BSoD.

    Re: The Web Browser Thread

    My Firefox was acting up a while ago. I didn't know why but it often stopped loading/working for some minutes and then got normal again. That was the first since I used Firefox when I first knew internet. Never happened with Chrome, but I still prefer Firefox anyway. It's simple and easy. Not that Chrome isn't, but I'm just used to it already. :P

    Re: The Web Browser Thread

    Ever since I tried Opera I've been using it as my primary browser. It's fast and most of the tools I needed are already integrated into the browser (eg: mail client, notes, dragonfly). It doesn't have the same amount of addons like what Mozilla has but I can live with that.

    Of course I keep other browsers as well for testing purposes: chrome, firefox, safari and IE. It would seem chrome has replaced firefox as the top browser of choice now.

    Something similar has been happening to me. At random firefox would just stop working for a bit and then it would start up again. I almost changed to chrome for that but it seems like the problem has been kinda resolved.

    Re: The Web Browser Thread

    I used to be a long time Firefox user but I switched into Chrome around early last year. I did not customize my Firefox that much, so I always think that Chrome's simplicity is preferable for me personally. Besides, my personal experience says that Chrome is faster; it does not take a long time for the apps to open, and it rarely slows down when it opens a heavy-content website.

    Re: The Web Browser Thread

    I think most people would agree that Chrome is fast, faster than Minato even.

    Also, a picture that I thought was inappropriate for this thread.

    I wonder if it's because the update? This never happened before. I'm using Chrome right now but I hope it won't go strange again when I use it tomorrow. XD

    Honestly I don't know much about customization as well. Only thing I did was choosing a theme for my browsers. I barely installed any applications or such (except the basic standard ones like flash player maybe). Speed wise from my experience I don't really see difference between my Chrome and Firefox, but maybe also because I don't really open heavy-content websites or something like that.

    Chrome.

    But for the love of god, why is there still no disable gif animation function. Firefox had that since 3.0 (which I've been spoiled by). FFS, even Google's stock Android browser has the option to disable.

    Re: The Web Browser Thread

    I have been using Firefox for years now. For few months, I tried Chrome as well but I find Firefox somehow more complete. It must be more about being used to it. In terms of performance, I was playing few zynga games and Chrome was my primary source. However, it wasn't a good experience. Those games run better on Firefox. At least, Firefox showed more stability. Chrome crashed a number of times.
