    Need new browser


    I'm running Windows 10 on a Dell tablet. So far...Don't like Edge, uses too much memory. IE o.k. but freezes on certain web sites. Chrome, o.k. but having protocol problems.

    one web site I need will not run Chrome because of an rc4 protocol security problem. Is there someway to get rc4 to work in Chrome?

    Last option is Opera. I know nothing about it other than the rc4 security problem has been fixed in it.

    Any help?

    Isn't Firefox memory intensive? I only have 2 gigs on this tablet.

    See if you can fix the IE "freezes" issue........................

    1. Clear browser cache:
    Open IE11 > Tools > Internet Options > General tab > at Browsing history > click Delete > make sure the top 4 entries are checked > click Delete.

    2. Reset IE if unstable:
    Open IE11 > Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab at the top > near the bottom, click Reset > you will need to restart afterwards.

    Hopefully, IE11 will not freeze anymore.

    I use firefox as my main browser, as a web designer/admin it's the most compatible browser around - IE is the least!!!

    For starters install CleanMem Free, it was actually originally designed for memory leaks in Firefox.
    There are many interesting browsers to choose from: Comparison of web browsers - Wikipedia
    You might give a try: Maxthon Nitro - Midori A lightweight browser - The Pale Moon Project

    Hey milford-

    Isn't Firefox memory intensive? I only have 2 gigs on this tablet.
    I think it might be taxing on the memory, however it is my defaulted browser as well.

    HERE'S a list of Chrome alternatives, if you think you might want to stay with a 'Chrome-based' browser. I also saw that CleanMem was posted, which (IMHO) is a nice program to have as well. I've been using it for years and it does seem to work fine with Win-10.

    Safari. Only one, other than Edge that ignores/ allows for the rc4 security protocol.
