Google Chrome is becoming such a crap browser - slow and unresponsive - that it's time to move on onto something that doesn't act like a bloatware.
Any serious alternatives?
If you're worried about bloat I believe FFox uses a lot less memory than Chrome these days.
Delete all traces of it and then reinstall
there are really only a few contenders out there and they all have their own issues.
I hear Microsoft's got a snazzy new browser. Anyone using it?
FF is a dog, but I am still using it. Chrome has always been a struggle for me (where's that damn drop down for recent/most visited sites?!)
- It seems fine but For some reason I feel even more paranoid using it than with Google alone. Microsoft really upped their big brother game with Windows 10monospaced
- I am more concerned about the inevitable hack. It's like someday we'll all know someone that's been hacked/lost their identity/etc.formed
- How is FF a dog? You sure it's not being held down by some poorly-made plug in?detritus
- Have been playing a bit with Edge on my DAW. It is snappy. Loads fast...suspect they're keeping it in memory to achieve that.sublocked
I'm testing vivaldi now - very fast load times but some issue splaying videos.
so... unless i'm wrong the Vivaldi browser ain't that great after all.
Vimeo videos don't work and you can't drag and drop tab to open up a new window.
I really don't get why everyone's so antipathetic towards Firefox - sure, about 5 years ago it spent a few months as a memory hog, but those days are long gone.
Conversely, I don't get why everyone's so keen to add another blanket vector for fucking Google to spy on EVERYTHING they do online. And Chrome looks Fisher-Price.
