Seamonkey!

(61 posts and not a single Seamonkey user out there? How sad.)

Seamonkey is a noble browser suite, tracing its history directly back to the original Netscape Navigator and Netscape Communicator.

Oh, I have to check that out. Maybe I think I'm happy with Firefox? I have missed Netscape on many occasions. Thank you.

Firefox used to be good. Now it is a pile of bloat. Have you ever looked at the memory footprint for it? It also crashes constantly when there is flash content on a page. Chome is essentially spyware.

I really don't get the hatred for IE 10, it actually has a very fast rendering engine and short load times, but many people haven't used it in a couple of generations and are still basing their opinions on that.

The memory footprint is large - BUT I suspect this is partially a result of the memory being available - i.e. the OS has plenty of RAM and thus Firefox will use plenty of RAM.
As to Flash: If your Firefox crashes regularly, that is most likely you issue/a flash issue.
Flash is perfectly fine in Firefox for me - both on Windows 7 and 8.1. (Incidentally, I had issues in - is IE11 the newest? - with Flash streaming radio via the web on Windows 8.1...)

Chrome for more than few years. Since 1996-7 (?), I was stuck with horrible AOL browser as my family was AOL dial-up subscriber at that time then next couple of years on IE... In mid 2000's, Mozilla with extensions was super until I decided to go with Chrome as default, possibly forever, even though Google's privacy policy is always concerning, something to worry about, but I tried not to let it to get to me. So Chrome browser is awesome, making my life easier. IE is the worst, nearly killed PC more than twice, thrice, I'd think.

So why not use Chromium? Or SRWare Iron? Or Opera Next?
-> All chromium based without the problem of google's presence.

As to IE "killing" your PC. No, just no. No software can kill a PC.
(Disclaimer: If you wrote malware that could override thermal throttling and shutdown do to overheating on the mainboard you could - but that would be very specialised.)

SRWare Iron is pretty darn good, and I find that its actually a little bit more responsive than stock chrome from google as well.

AdblockPlus, what else? Does tracking blocking as well nowadays - Ghostery is otherwise good against trackers.
