Google Chrome is a HORRIBLE browser! I have a big family, and each one has one or the other Windows running on it (Windows XP, Windows 7, etc.) and
on each computer there is one problem or another with Google Chrome. My brother & I work with computers, him in a few areas and myself in other
areas, so between the 2 of us, there isn't anything we can't fix (not to sound full of ourselves, but to date we haven't had something we could not
fix, or pinpoint). With Google Chrome, there is a myriad of problems and conflicts.
Now, Firefox is different, but sucks in other ways. Chrome doesn't drain Private Working Set too much, but Firefox does. And if you have more than
1 Firefox window open, you'll be running 125,000k easily. Now top that with any add ons you have in Firefox and 2 open windows become 250,000k.--now
for example, I have 2 open windows in Firefox and 2 add ons and I'm running at 289,000k in Task Manager. Firefox is also notoriously bad at
conflicting with other software installed on your computer. It conflicts with a laundry list of software so long even Santa hasn't seen a list this
But, with all that in mind (and oh so much I haven't mentioned), I'd take Chrome or Firefox over Internet Explorer ANY DAY!
It's amazing how bad Microsoft's own browser is, I mean with ALL of the vast combined knowledge and experience they have, how many professional
programmers they have, you'd think they'd have a little better of a browser, but alas, this is not the case.
My advice is do a little research --which software conflicts, or is known or rumored to conflict with your Operating System, browser, or make or
computer, etc. Also, don't add on any browser add ons, or keep them to a bare minimum.
Also, download a free program called C Cleaner. It allows you to see all of the programs that Start Up when you turn on your computer. It also
allows you to disable any programs you don't need at Start Up. In all actuality, depending on your system, you only need a handful at Start Up. But
before you disable any programs from starting at Start Up, research them to make sure you don't need them at Start Up. Before you do anything, back
up, set a Restore Point and all that good stuff.
Good luck! I hope your browsing doesn't turn into snoozing.
