    New automatically downloaded version of Firefox if as slow as 14,400 BPS, what else is out there that's worth checking out? I'm using Chrome right now but I'm not too fond of it.

    There's always yahoo yes?
    Opera?
    Safari?

    I.E. we no C.

    I like Chrome, it's better than Eye E and faster than Fox. So much for Firefox wanting to be Better than Chrome or I-Yi-E.

    Firefox was GOOD but now It's Firegone? It has not "updated" on my laptop, so I guess it's still a fast little quad.

    Thanks Mate!!

    i tried so many others. they are all bloated with stuff that slows down things.

    i ended up with Chrome as my primary, IE as my back up, as no one can delete IE.

    I see IE down there on the tool bar but haven't run that since it was the only kid on the block.

    it's really not that bad. it has some speed to it. then too, chrome has a way of crashing with the java and flash player, as chrome has it's own version.

    I had Safari on my mac,but a foreign hacker called Mac Keeper struck it down & locked up my computer.
    So I switched to Firefox which is a lot slower.
    Takes a long time to load sites,but so far so good keeping my computer running

    I use safari on my iPhone and it works fine, never tried it on my laptop. I thought that the Apple stuff was immune to hackers.

    There are always Bugs in every application, process, etcetera.

    MANY websites have peculiar apps installed that slow down load times.
    I'm on Firefox on the Upgraded or 56 platform and it appears faster on some sites and a wee bit faster here at TB, so, as usual online, it's a tossup.

    CHEERS!! :)

    There is NO known system that is "immune" to hackers.
    ANYTHING can be hacked as we've seen over the years and will see.

    I’m not sure but I believe Apple actively searches for hacks, bugs, and viruses while Microsoft expects you to buy software. I don’t know if you can find antivirus, malware, type software for Apple products. BUT!!!!! I’ve been married three times. You can’t use my judgement.

    I've had this mac since 2008 & it was bug free till that Mac Keeper showed up & shut me down on Safari.
    Now Safari is locked & I can no longer use it on my computer.
    That is the reason I]m on Firefox now.

    Thanks other trucker2001,however I couldn't do anything with that stupid site filling my screen.
    After shutting down & rebooting it was still there.

    So I had to stop using safari,& had to start signing on with firefox,which is better than nothing.

    Try uninstalling safari, restart, reinstall safari. I’ve had to do this with google several times.
