5. Internet Explorer 10

I don’t normally prefer using internet Explorer because it is very slow when compared to any other web browser mentioned above. There is famous Joke on internet about IE β€œInternet explorer is the best browser to download other Browsers”. There are many jokes floating on internet explorer as it get even hangs sometimes while using it. Though Microsoft it updating it frequently none can stop it from getting crashed.

  1. You can also add the Torch browser to your list. It's chromium-based, works great on windows 8, and has a couple of built in features that are really handy for most people (video downloader, torrent client, etc.)

  2. Lol.. U kid go home! U say IE10 as worst and hangs??
    May be u havent used it or u still hung up with p3 xp with ie5

  3. Hey bro,

    I don't mean that.You must be a Fan of IE πŸ™‚
    i mean to say that, Other browsers that I've mentioned works better than than Internet Explorer.

    More over i prefer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome because. They comes out with many features which are not provided in Internet explorer.

    Even if we take security issues into consideration, none will prefer it..Have you heard about the Vulnerability in IE 8, which will let the hackers to hack your PC,when you just click on their link from Internet Explorer ??

    considering all these things, I've mentioned it in 5th place πŸ™‚

  4. I've gotten a lot of pop ups in google chrome lately and I had to switch to mozilla firefox but it is much slower than google chrome and sometimes things just don't load up at all. I go back to google chrome and it's annoying because I get all of the pop up as soon as I load any page. The pop ups are also happening with IE…why is this happening all of the sudden?

  5. Hey,

    Those Pop-ups and adds that you are seeing on your Google chrome browser are because of Ad-wares that are installed on your PC. Recently you must have installed some software on your PC from Non-trusted sources and that might resulted you in this.

    and the solution for this is, Just install a Anti-adware or Anti mall-ware on your PC. It will solve you problem for sure. Search in Google for a application called "adwcleaner" and run in it. I've tested it and it works great !

  6. IE10 way quickest in all performance tests and least crashes. Also now better privacy settings by default. Chrome and Firefox still better for HTML5 compliance. Just installed latest Chrome on Tablet with Windows 8.1 preview and touch won't work properly. Used to prefer Chrome but switched to IE as a result…

  7. One of the reason i dont i prefer IE is just because, many of the latest HTML and CSS codes wont get displayed on IE. That is why i prefer Chrome.

    Yes IE 10 is fine. I 've checked it too πŸ™‚

  8. idk y idiots just don't admit it IE 10 is way better than google chrome… and btw chrome crashes the most out of all these browsers mentioned…

  9. I crashed Windows 8 6 times trying to install the proper version of Firefox – which was supposed to be at last ' Nithtly ' not good either –
    The problem lies with the Adobe Flash Player plugin that does not work on Firefox right now – I brought it to tech at last and he said don't install any Firefox anymore … now – maybe it had to do with other setup of Samsung ??

  10. totally agree with you….Google chrome crashes all the time in Windows 8. On the other hand IE has improved a lot in the past few months. I was a huge fan of Chrome but now i have switched to IE

  11. Are you serious? Chrome actually uses the highest amount of memory. It just runs multiple processes in task manager so you won't get the exact amount.

  12. Just installed Torch, as usual I did read before clicking next because I only want torch, after install completed I saw 4-5 additional desktop links "youtube,amazon,eba…) if they have to sneak stuff in under my radar what else are dumping on my pc?

  13. try Maxthon its too good on windows8……. also torch n dragon (Firefox based)…….. checked because dragon get less crash than Firefox while playing online flash games……

  14. when i first installed torch it worked just fine but a few weeks later it crashed a bit then a lot then messed up my laptop . then i got to know about maxthon it was sooo cool but i still miss my video grabber from torch.

  15. Firefox is not working properly. When you search something on google and click on the results the pages don't load. I've reinstalled so many times but same results. Why?


  17. I love Opera, Opera if fast, reliable and doesn't crash, my opinion, Opera is the best for windows 8, our laptop is a family laptop, Opera saves all of our passwords to Facebook, Gmail, on like Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer is junk now, its slow, and it doesn't save passwords, I highly recommend Opera!!!

  18. Hey its really help full! There are lots of many other browsers are in the internet,but they are not secure and not trust able browser. i think my experience is the best browser is Firefox.

  19. Fire Fox and Chrome has proven it does not operate right with Windows 8 or 8.1. I found this to be true the minute I upgraded to 8.1. So your info is incorrect. Internet is full of customers complaining about that too. Not just me.
