    Switched to Google Chrome


    Well after all these years of using IE, I give up. I've tried out chrome and I like it. Well I'll get used to it.
    Edge just leaves me missing a lot. Tried getting used to it, it just isn't going to work for me.
    So Chrome it is.

    I'm a Chrome user too.

    Really like the sign in feature. Bookmarks, extensions available across my devices, you control what gets sync'ed. Use it on my phone and tablet which are both iOS.

    Take the time to check out the settings. Lots of things you can easily customize. Quick feature to create a desktop shortcut and I've set my Home Button to open this forum. (and it can be set to anything.)

    Have you tried the new Firefox 58? I was a major Chrome user and never cared too much for Firefox but it has changed drastically both cosmetically and inside as well...it's good looking, fast, snappy and like Chrome you can set up an account so that in the future, anytime you install it (and log in to the account) it will remember all your passwords, settings, etc...

    Worth giving it a try! :)

    I've actually switched to using Firefox as my primary browser now...

    Well I'm just whining myself off IE Chrome seems ok and fits with other devices. I had used firefox years ago when they were first out with tabs. IE got tabs and it was just a better browser for me at the time.

    I don't use many add-ons in Firefox but one I've found useful is the Extension called New Tab Homepage. Clicking the + on the tabs bar takes one to their Homepage as set in Options, in my case the Search engine duckduckgo.com.

    Chrome has something like this, a Home Button. You can set to open generic new tab or a specific tab, mine is set to this forum and I set a number of clients to their mail.
