    IE9 has a vulnerability at the moment, if you choose to stick it out with IE9 at least get the thingy to fix the flaw that allows some strange virus now;)

    IE9 open random number of tabs and/or windows if you close tabs and/or windows.
    I am going to change my browser for sure.

    Been with Firefox pretty much as long as it's been available. Can't see myself switching to anything else. Not tried Chrome TBH but then I'm not keen on "Big Brother Google" being my browser provider.

    It's a personal preference. I'm not saying you should use both, I'm saying you should try both.

    None of them is "the best". It's a personal prefecerence, meaning use whatever the hell you feel like.

    I use firefox with no script and adblock, pretty much the best security there is.

    He said in the OP he tried it but didn't like it.

    I think a better question would be "Which browser do you use?"

    I used to use firefox till AMD drivers started causing it to crash all the time.

    Since AMD dont do monthly driver updates anymore, Ive been forced to use a different browser.

    Ive been using Chrome for a while now and its been pretty good, though there are certain FF plugins that I miss that arent made for chrome.

    I still have FF installed as all my bookmarks havent exactly completely transferred over

    chrome is good but at some point when you open many tabs it getting lag for a short time, chrome is good when you have better internet connection.
    ive used chrome for several months, before that i used FF. i switched to chrome after FF release too much update.

    I just sucked it up pushed thru. That was probably the first real "hiccup" I have had with Firefox and with AMD for that matter. Was certainly scary when it started to happen anyway.
    It's been sorted now at least. I am running HW Accel. again without issue.
