Wheels, I had trouble with Explorer hanging up, then I tried Chrome. Chrome had the same problems. They both usually time out searching for an advertisements.

I now use Mozilla Firefox. It runs faster and smoother. It appears to have its house in order.

Wheels,

I like both Firefox and Chrome, don't think you would go wrong with either. Plus there are utilities like Ad Blocker and Ad Blocker Plus that you can download which will block most of the annoying ads on your screen.

Wheels, I think DADES is right about Firefox and Chrome. They do offer better protection than IE9. Chrome does stumble sometimes. I definitely like Firefox.

Wheels just push any button and hold on because it will change direction tomorrow, just like facebook those kids tinker with these networks every day they cannot leave nothing alone. If it is not broke don't fix it leave it alone. Now, I understand Internet Explorer had a dispute with Google and ATT had a dispute with Live Mail which is owned by Microsoft hell they all were in to it there for a while I had to go to Yahoo mail which is part of ATT because ATT stopped everybody Live Mail one morning it was a mess. Turf battles in the cyber world.

swampeastmissouri;

I'm all the time being told to push any button to make certain things happen. I've looked all over that darn keyboard and can't find an "any" button on it!

Keys on keyboard how is that Data48. No button, key's.

The slowest thing on my computer is me.

Took me two years to figure out what a browser is. In five year old terms, so far so good with chrome and 7. The big problem I have is the back key on these forums. If only you all knew what brilliant posts you have missed because my back arrow ate them! :)
