    Default Browsers are becoming a pain in the rear!!!
    I switched many years ago to FF because IE was just a mess and ran slow. Recently I TRIED to switch to Chrome but it seems I run into issues all the time with pages not functioning correctly or it just doesn't display all the content of the page at times. So I now find myself TRYING to go back to FF but it's becoming a joke. Seems like there is a update to install almost once a week.

    What do you think? What browser do you use?

    I use the dev version of Chrome, which is great for both seeing new features before the others and testing if my sites will work the same in the future.
    I dunno what went wrong with your Chrome, but I've never had any rendering problems since I first used version 2 (not dev version) in 2008.

    I have issues with movies loading. Youtube alone takes longer to stream. I've tested this on my windows desktop, macbook, work computer. Same results. Another thing for example is the submit button on Pizza Huts website when I try to place a order does not respond in Chrome.

    Just some examples that I can think of off hand.

    @Cer0

    Do you use Safari because you are a Apple user only? Just curious.

    Because it has been the best to use for me on my Mac. I use IE at work because we have too, otherwise I would use FF.

    Opera was pretty good to, haven't used it for a while though.

    For YouTube, it seems to be faster for me when the HTML5 player is enabled: YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
    But otherwise, I haven't seen Chrome be slow when loading videos, except for on really slow computers, which I've noticed to start “not responding” every now and then.

    I am using Chrome and have not had the problems you are talking about. I love it myself and what I like best about it is you can do a search in the address bar!

    I still rock FF, though I don't understand how they've gone through five major revisions in as many months...

    -shrug- Ah well.

    yup I love that feature as well. Matter fact I installed a addon on FF for that because I rely on it now!

    Since I switched to a MacBook, I started using Safari, and was like, hmm this isn't so bad. Then 5.0 came out with the Reading List feature, which syncs with iCloud (and my Mac) and it made it much betta. Lol. Before all of this, I was a diehard FF user, tweaked out to my liking, and loved it. I have tried FF on my Mac, not impressed, especially the fact that there is no browser that can sync my FF bookmarks and/or tabs.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    Did you try Xmarks? Firefox and IE versions are good, haven't tried it in Safari, but the Chrome version seems to always make duplicates of my bookmarks.

    A lot of them are used for things like mathematical modelling of climate change, objects in space moving around another etc.

    I love Xmarks, it worked so well between my EEE PC 900 and my wife's Lappy. Their "iOS support" is a web app- not impressed. At least Firefox home offered a way to sync bookmarks and open tabs between devices, but again, it is not what I want... I know I am too picky, but Apple actually came through for me on this one.
