    Which PC browser do you prefer

    OK so I thought I would start a thread on which browser for the PC you prefer (jlevy and his mac need not post:banana. As some of you know I recently bought a netbook for my everyday use and to have a quick and easy place that has all my Blackberry stuff stored on it. So when I got this bad boy set up I immediately set up Firefox (my preferred choice), and had no issues in the beginning. Now I like FF for all the plug ins and themes that I can use with it. But since the new site switchover it started running very slow so I thought I would test out some different ones. I downloaded Chrome and love how fast and minimal it is ( I do miss the plug ins and themes). Will then the other night is stopped saving passwords so I deleted it in anger. So next on my list was Opera, now this one I liked a lot. Loved the look and all around set up. Super fast (not as fast as chrome) but quicker then FF. It also has a password keeper and personal info auto fill which I really liked. But this morning I found out no spell check! So out went opera (can't operate without spell check). I thought about IE 8 but I haven't been a fan of IE for so many years, I just can't bring myself to do it LOL. So I reinstalled Chrome and so far it is saving all my passwords and I am happy, but I am curious as to what browsers you prefer and why?


    I also tried Safari but it did not run nice on the netbook, but I did love it for the PC.

    Firefox. Can't live without the web development extensions and ad blocker. The only thing is I wish FF was as fast as Chrome. I've got other extensions that make FF virtually fullscreen all the time.

    I can't help but wonder if it has anything to do with the amount of RAM.
