MS has already said they’d issue a fix; may even be out by the time you read this.May 22, 2015 at 7:26 PM #3522
Yep, this is why they are called betas ? 🙂 Firefox…the king of updated browsers recently had to release an update for FF 38.0 (38.0.1) and one of the reasons why was that computers with a certain video card were causing the browser to crash.May 23, 2015 at 8:31 AM #3524
I prefer Firefox because the Flashplayer crashes on YouTube every other video, and I prefer Explorer because I have to reload the page for every other video as well.
Also, Firefox makes it super easy to remove cookies.
Oh wait…actually, it does not at all.
And Explorer has no search field in their bookmarks (Favorites) making that equally appealing. (Not at all appealing).
So I prefer the above inconveniences and annoyances over any of these new-fangled browsers that are likely to make my life even more difficult.
And forget Chrome; with whatever Goober does, like Facebook, they always want me to tie my social stuff into it like my name, phone number, birthdate, SS#, bank accounts, driver’s license, passport, tax records and sexual partners and practices, so that’s a no-go as well.
Happy Saturday morning.May 23, 2015 at 8:51 AM #3525
I am running Firefox 31.7 ESR version and I am experimenting with the latest version of Pale Moon. Neither one crashes on me and Flash runs fine, but on YouTube I am using the html5 player. I save cookies that I wish to save by using that feature in CCleaner. I object to the bloat that is becoming more and more problematic in Firefox as they add more features that I could care less about. Pale Moon could soon become my main browser of choice. Maybe as soon as during this weekend.May 23, 2015 at 12:22 PM #3526
The Eric Raymond version? 🙂
But really, how many browsers does that amount to? I don’t know too much more than Presto (which has been abandoned by Opera), Blink, Gecko, and WebKit. Maybe I’m under a false impression, but aren’t browsers just shells around these major engines?

- This reply was modified 2 years, 1 month ago by RChandra. Reason: clarify Presto may still be in use by saying specifically Opera abandoned Blink
RChandra’s right. Except for a few independents like Amaya and Dillo, most of them use one of a handful of engines.May 25, 2015 at 8:54 AM #3532
Some news this morning on the Edge browser….
Apparently the benchmark scores are pretty good for this new browser also.
For me, what it comes down to really is the ability to continue using the few extensions that I run in Firefox. One of which is called Social Fixer and is the best things that has come along in my opinion since sliced bread for those of us who spend any time at all on Facebook. So that, and the ability to block ads…I am currently running Adblock Edge…makes my internet time all that much better.
