    Which browser is the best?

    Ok this is for my pc. Little background, my beloved wife can be slightly technotarded ( i am going to trade mark that work). I need a browser for the pc that is similar in operation to IE7, and much better so lets have the poll tell us all. I am adding 3 choices I konw of if I miss any let me know.

    You can choose more than one and its public, PLEASE TELL ME WHY YOU CHOSE WHAT YOU DO, AND IF YOU CHOOSE OTHER TELL ME WHAT OTHER.

    Fire fox 3.5 has been outstanding for me. I used Chrome for all but I missed the add ons with Firefox plus Chrome was buggy at time at least for me.

    Oh yeah she should be able to go from IE7 with no issues, my wife did and loves it. 3.5 is still fairly new so a lot of the add ons don't work yet but that is changing daily so that is another feature she will like. My wife runs a pink theme on hers and loves it.

    Ditto. I have tried to get myself to switch to Chrome. But between bugs and my favorite add ons missing, I can't make the switch.

    Your the reason I tired it :lmao: and I did like it the lack of add ons was tough but easily over looked with the speed of chrome. My issue was the bugs would just show up after time, causing me to delete and re download. My biggest beef was the password keeper would just stop functioning after awhile :angryfire: but I will say it is fast a ton faster than the IE7 and just a tad faster than the new 3.5 FF

    I think the issues I was observing were related to the developer stuff I was trying to use. For just browsing, and absolutely nothing else, it works. But I was trying to use the JS debugger and other dev tools in Chrome and it kept locking up on me.

    OK, so I decided to give FF 3.5 a try. I found a Chrome theme so it doesn't feel a lot different from what I'm used to.

    But I notice that FF doesn't render BBOS as good as Chrome. Actually it's not even close.

    Here is a screen cap from Chrome



    And here is the same screen in Firefox 3.5. There is a rendering problem with the tab highlights where it drops it down a bit.
    And another problem with the Online store tab.






    I think I'm gonna stick with Chrome. It just renders pages so beautifully. Sorry FF

    I think I can explain away your rendering issues, to a degree. You are right about the gap in the online store tab. As I noted in the forums tab thread, there is an error in the CSS that is causing the issue with there being a gap on the tab for online stores. That I believe can be corrected if the CSS is updated with the fix I provided.

    The second rendering issue you are observing doesn't happen on any of my computers running FF 3.5. You could be seeing that because of the theme you are using to make FF look like Chrome.



    BTW, please don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be a fan boy or bash your opinion. I am just reporting that I don't have the second issue.

    No problem Sun. I didn't even think about the theme causing it.
