    Default Which internet browser are you using?

    So i've been using Chrome for a while but recently it has become really slow, i did the usual Malwarebytes, Zemana, etc clean up to no avail, but in task manager Chrome was using so many resources my cpu was at 100% all the time, deleted Chrome and trying Opera, and up to now all good.

    Anyone else use Opera, or any other browsers you recommend?

    I've had the problem with chrome in the past too.

    Recently as it was only just added if you go to Chrome / Settings / Cleanup Computer / Find this often resolved it.

    Else uninstall Chrome / Run CCleaner / CleanSweep / and reinstall Chrome.

    I love Opera for the easy VPN.

    Thanks to JonEp

    Firefox on the PC and Chrome on the Mac
    I used to use FF on both but it just ate the battery on the laptop so switched.

    Default Re: Which internet browser are you using?

    I've noticed the trend with all the browsers and websites over the last few years - they have all turned shit in terms of resource usage, and things don't seem to be getting any better.

    It's a bit of a joke that I've lost count of the number of times a low powered mobile phone can render a webpage more quickly and accurately than a full blown PC.

    Thanks to Over Carl

    I've been on Opera all day and it feels much faster than Chrome, hopefully it stays that way.

    I find Chrome the worst browser by far atm. I use Firefox & Opera with Edge as a backup.
    Firefox is the first choice though.

    Same as that. Firefox went shit for a while but it got better. Was using chrome at work but it’s a greedy cunt.

    Edge seemed okay, I just never really adopted it.

    I used Chrome at home and Opera if I need to download anything, the VPN works really well.

    At work I use Edge for Office 365 stuff and Chrome for anything else.

    As much as I want to use Firefox, and I try and get others using it, I still use Chrome as my main browser. Not sure if it is just habit or there were some issues with Firefox when I tried to switch.

    It's been way better in the last 12 months though.

    I use Opera, it's got a great sidebar with Messenger and Whatsapp built in, plus it allows me to take screenshots of exact areas, pretty good.

    I used Comodo Dragon for a while. It is Chrome with all the shit cut out and was loads faster and lightweight.
    Not sure why I stopped using it tbh.

    Think it was just a reformat and never got round to reinstalling it for some reason.
