Windows 10: WHY is Chrome such a pig these days?

    Further to my above post.
    I've now tried several different browsers. Chrome, Chrome Canary, Firefox, PaleMoon, and Opera.

    Both Chrome and Chrome Canary seem to work fine, but both have this scrambled text input, on Facebook, issue.
    Firefox and PaleMoon, will not log into Gmail. The error message suggests I may have cookies blocked, but I haven't.
    Opera works perfectly so far. I've been testing it for about an hour, and so far I'm really impressed.

    Hey ho :-)

    I haven't tried Chrome yet for the simple reason that I really resent the stealthy tactics that Google stoop to to get Chrome and their toolbar installed on my pc.

    Hi there

    Not wanting to be facetious but the best people to answer that question is GOOGLE. You wouldn't ask Microsoft about Apple's problems or Canon about Nikon cameras. !!!!!

    I doubt whether Ms gives a rats you know what's toss about chrome - it's not their product. It's up to GOOGLE to sort out problems (if any) on windows.

    I find Chrome OK on a mobile phone but I'm quite OK with IE 11 on Windows. Most of the problems with browser speeds etc are usually down to inefficient coding on the HOST site, how busy the Host site is and your own Internet connection quality and speed.

    I find the "Browser wars" over whether xxxx is a few milliseconds faster than yyyy one of the most BORING and pointless topics I've ever seen discussed on the Internet (and I've seen a few in my time).

    So long as a browser works is just fine for me -- the only difference isusuallly in the GUI they present to the user and that's got to be a PERSONAL preference. If they are riddled with toolbars and advertisements then that's another reason to avoid them - but that's all in the GUI presented to the user -- choose whatever one (or two or three etc) you like but as far as the OS is concerned it's a POINTLESS topic.

    I also think that the wretched things should work straight out of the box without endless plugin searches or mega configuration files (Firefox for example).

    Cheers

    Chrome is currently my number 1 browser. I'm using it in both Win 8 and Win 10 and only have 1 addon. I have had no issues with it as pointed out in this thread. I am having some display issues with IE in Windows 10, some pages are so large that they don't display in the browser correctly. I don't see this problem in Win 8.1.

    IMO, Chrome has been a resource pig for almost a year now, I used to use it as my main browser when IE was having loads of problems and slowly but surely every time they updated chrome it got to be more and more of a resource hog.

    I don't need a web browser that logs into my GMail ... or any site for that matter, I don't store passwords via my browser, too risky.

    These days I use Waterfox 64bit which has blazing speed, it's like using Firefox on steroids and it accepts Firefox plugins.

    It works best if you're using Chrome OS!

    It is better to use flash than HTML5 for videos, for example I use Disable Youtube™ HTML5 Player.

    Nah Firefox is the resource hog, it uses more ram than ANY browser it also lags when loading sites and is buggy too so Chrome is cool. And yeah Waterfox seems to be faster than firefox.
