I find it hard to believe anyone makes serious use of Chrome. It's not very compatible with the sites I go to and who in their right mind wants
Goggle to track any more of what you are doing online? I almoost never search via Google directly -- I use StartPage instead. I do love U3 Opera on
my U3 enabled 16Gb fast USB. It still leaves no trace on a public PC (as in hotels and lobbies).
!00% do concur, Opera is best on a PC and Opera Mini is by far the best on Android. I use AOL's browser in second place, and FireFox as 3rd best.
IE9 is very close to FireFox IMO. Chrome is dead last among my installed browsers as far as I'm concerned and I almost never use it any more. I
tried, and dumped, Safari and a few others. I'd use FireFox more often if it didn't start up so slowly and need updating so often. The updates play
havoc with my password vault usability.
I don't know why people overlook AOL, probably just cultural bias and flat out ignorance. AOL, as I understand, includes a streamlined IE9, it has a
well integrated email, AIM, video chat, large email can be sent and received, extremely large file transfers are permitted, and there are a host of
other features. It's filters are extremely good at reducing spam too. Plus, you can use dialup if you travel in an area without broadband -- some
still exist. Email can be stored on AOL and / or locally on your PC or Android for more sensitive documents. So, if you want, you can access a
decade old critical email saved on AOL from any device you happen to be using wherever you are whether you own the system or not. High risk, easy to
hack, cloud based storage is not needed and no extra steps are required. +if you prefer Outlook for email, you can hook it up with AOL. AOL is quite
Browser based email, all of them, is clunky in comparison to AOL and Outlook. They are like stepping back 20 years. So are the online calendars. I
will note though that I'd prefer (paid) Eudora for email if I was allowed to use it at work. I don't like the distraction of "unpaid" Eudora.
