I downloaded Chrome and I like it.

Should I now delete Internet Explorer?

Naw, there's no need to delete anything. I don't know what you use your browser for, but Chrome has its problems, too. I find that i switch back and forth.

@Setanta,
Have you managed to solve the constant "Shockwave Flash is not responding" problem, because I haven't.

I just go pour myself another cup of coffee.

Or do you have that problem with Chrome?

@Joe Nation,
Don't delete Internet Explorer. It's an integral (REALLY IMPORTANT) part of Windows.

@Joe Nation,
Yeah, i have that problem, which is why you want to hang on to IE. I use IE, Firefox and Chrome. FF sucks, but sometimes its the only option. IE sucks for different reasons. When it works, Chrome is great. The problem is Flash player--it will crash in any of those three browsers. It does seem to give Chrome more heartburn that it does the others.

@tsarstepan,
Agreed. It's not the same as deleting 3rd party software.

@Joe Nation,
I have Safari and Chrome. Sozlet likes Chrome better (they use it at school) and it's kind of a nice way to separate our stuff on the same computer. I use Chrome occasionally too though. The round compass icon of Safari and the round red/yellow/green/blue pinwheely icon of Chrome coexist happily on my desktop.

Disabling Flashplayer does the trick.

Crap.
Disabling Flash makes all kinds of other things happen.....like really slow or NO loading of Scrabble, no YouTube play, no loading of any more than two tabs at a time without "the following pages are not responding." showing up. Meh!

Double meh!!

pissed

Back to Internet Explorer. I'll keep Chrome around until I'm sure I can find a way to have Goggle Docs on my phone and this computer.

@Joe Nation,
I like Scrabble best on Firefox though on the days Chrome and Flash are feeling friendly (after a 20 minute load time), it's all right on Chrome.

I don't think I could stand to have another browser on this 10 year old computer.

And it only takes about ten minutes of use for Flash to start sit-down strike with Chrome.

WAIT A SEC!! Shocked Are you really trying to get these 2012 based browser to work on ... what? A Windows XP computer? Windows ME, (which would be worse)!? That's your problem. The latest IE isn't supposed to work on anything older then Vista and I bet that similar issues are involved with the latest Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Opera browsers as well.

You DON'T need a new browser. You need a NEW COMPUTER. Rolling Eyes

@tsarstepan,
My browsers all work on XP. They'll have to drag me kicking and screaming to upgrade past XP. I'll probably switch to a Mac before I use Vista or any of the other farcical Windows "upgrades."

I sympathise with JoeNation. I bought my splendid mac in early 2006. Apparently there has been a 'dump' on fostering older systems. This is, ah, too bad, not just for me, but for part of the rest of the world.
