    Firefox is unreliable, recommend a good browser that works, withou issues with flashplayer. I need one that can save my open pages when I switch off so I can continue next day. Firefox has an add on but you need to remember to manually activate every session

    chrome has a lot of privacy issues - read the licence and they leave cookies to watch what you are doing and where you are going in other browsers. even when I tell chrome to delete cookies and hten I get out og it - it still has cookies.
    only thing I could get to get rid of them was c-cleaner after each use of chrome

    I've been trying Chrome after firefox, and apart from flash issues, I found Firefox handles the stupidly large number of windows I tend to run at a time better (in terms of speed/operatability. Need to figure out how to increase the min tab width in Chrome though). But chrome still crashes with bloody flash and still takes up lots of memory when you have a few youtube tabs open (though doesnt seem as much as internet exploder). Flash is crap no matter what browser its on :tired:
    All the extensions on firefox just work so well for me. Not sure if Chrome has the ones I like (havent looked a lot though).

    I really wish I could get a browser that dealt with memory better. I.e. no constant memory leaks on pages that arent updating. It even does that with the damn internet connection off! I would also like the option to chuck tabs to a scratch disk and stop them taking up RAM. They're sitting in the background for later reading/watching, so I dont want them chewing up RAM just sitting there. Bookmarking really doesnt work the same. Chrome and IE have separate processes in the windows task manager, so you can close the really memory hogging tabs/groups but I have no idea how to figure out which damn tabs they are to know if I can close them or not.

    I use session manager. I dont need to tell it to do anything to save. Stores last 10 sessions by default?

    Yep much the same here. Once you achieve perfection, you don't want to leave again.

    That said if I was forced to do so, Chrome.
