Firefox or Chrome?

#1 Post by BikerGran » Mon Jul 01, 2013 7:16 pm

My new pooter came with Internet Express which I've been using quite happily but today I uploaded some photos to my Flickr and having problems organising them which is apparently due to my browser.

I'm inclined to go for Firefox cos that's what I had before - but just wanted some opinions. Is there any way in which Chrome is better than Firefox? 64bit Win7.

Oh and while I'm on the subject, I'm using Outlook for my email cos Win7 doesn't do OE - and I don't like it! Are there alternatives?

Don't want to do that - unless someone convinces me Chrome is better I'll just go for Firefox.

if u like firefox, and are used to it - use it

i have tried many different browsers but - i still have my preferred choice and just use it


Let's face it, you wouldn't go to a nurse to get good advice on a problem with a Falco - you'd choose an Engineer or a mechanic...

Chrome all the way.

Its mega quick thanks to its cleaver caching and page rendering.

And it also stores and synchronizes browsing history and tabs over many devices.

FF copies less of your life :smt001
chrome tends to take the PC with it when it does crash and comes across sites that it just doesn't like to play with

that said I do usew it and it did just kill one of my puters

Outlook is total shite, dont do it !
I updated and instantly regretted, no obvious way of forwarding emails, just un useable

I lied - just keeping you alert.

It came with Outlook, rather than Outlook Express.
