Its not just Chrome 6.0. Even Google Chrome 5.0xx did not play well with the post editing software here. I've been keeping two icons on my desktop for a long time now: one IE8 and one for Google Chrome that I use for everything I can. It is lighter/faster. +1 I had to go away from Firefox since many various websites I visit seem to become limited in unexpected ways.

You are not using the new Chrome Beta (6.0.x is really aswesome).

You can keep all browsers in your computer. Personally I used to use Firefox and I ditch it for Chrome, when I saw how fast it is comared to Firefox.
IE is installed by default, soI keep it there anyways.

Firefox is a huge resource hog...is Chrome less greedy with the memory? Have you noticed any glitches or drawbacks w/ Chrome so far?

LOL...


I use IE8, and like it!


If I ever think its getting slow (which I dont) I just upgrade my PC.


Com on guys, you really need and extra .005 second boost?


I run a quad core, Win7 64 bit and 8 gigs of ram. (nothing much now a days) and IE8 takes maybe 1 second to load and maybe 1 to 3 more seconds to log the user by cookieinto this page!


You guys need to check your boxes for bloatware, I keep my system clean and stable and IE8 has never given me a single problem in my system.

I read this in January and make me laugh when actual governments told you NOT to use IE. I really don't trust politicians, but for once they were actually right... I stopped using this browser long time ago. Just google it to find out why you should stay away from IE.

Read the article... The title is Should you stop using Internet Explorer?and their final answer was NO.


They are talking about a flaw using an UNPATCHED version of IE6!. UNPATHCED! and how they(govt.) assume this might extend to the later versions.

Microsoft improved security in IE8 by running the browser frame and tabs in separate processes and per-site ActiveX controls. Both IE 7 and 8 also include support for Data Execution Prevention (DEP) that prevents buffer overflow attacks.

LOL.. if you are running and UNPATCHED version of Internet Explorer 6at this time, you are a MORON! (not intended as an insult, unless you are running a version of IE6 and do not patch).I understand the the enterprise world might still be using IE6, but thats due to their own internal needs/lack of software upgrades due to costs, in no way does this imply that single home users out there would in any way benefit from using IE6. Windows 7 and IE8 combination is one of the MOST secure combinations in the MS world, way more secure than Win 7 and Firefox and chrome offers a similar sandbox experience but really not as separate from the kernel as IE8.

You have to remember there are a LOT of Microsoft haters out there and misinformation and pokes at it will continue forever.


If you are running IE8 and experience slow performance, this is usually due to addons/controls installed in your browser due to sloppy user maintenance/browser navigation, go to your "manage addons" and disable all and just keep stuff like Flash,iSpell (thats all I keep for now).


If you install every addons a web suggests like (facebook apps/web printing/file uploads/blah blah blah) your browser will have to load all of those making your web experience slow.


If you want to set your IE8 to as close to factory defaults and start over clean (addons/controls) go to your top menu and select "Tools/Internet Options/Advanced tab/RESET" ... clear all and start browsing again.


TO CONCLUDE:


The French Govt. saying to you should stop using IE7 and IE8 because of an exploit in a IE6 (unpatched) flawis like me stating that you should not buy any Ford car due to the Ford Pinto's flaw when hit from behind!


Yes! I'm comparing IE6 to a Ford Pinto! and so should you!

I believe from my past experience, is that your safari had problems loggin into this site because it has COOKIES DISABLED from its original state.


You must ENABLE cookies on safari and you shuld be fine after this.


Later versions of SAFARI might already have cookies enabled from its default state but im speculating at this point.
