I switched to Firefox from I.E. about a year or so ago and now it keeps freezing on me. So, anyone have Google Chrome? Is it going to make web browsing so much better? I'm tired of freeze ups but don't want to return to IE unless I have to.

I have IE. I loaded Firefox and Chrome at the same time. I have not used Firefox is probably well over a year. I actually deleted it. Firefox was much slower than Chrome for me. I love Chrome. Wish I could use it at work instead of IE.

I've heard Chrome can cause a lot of problems with certain websites and add ons. I switched from IE after a lot of issues with slow connections and freezing, but I've heard the new version is pretty good.
Where am I and what am I doing in this handbasket?
Firefox was not making me happy about a year ago, but whatever caused the issue, it seems to be resolved after the last few upgrades and I use it on my desktop.
I mostly use dolphin on my android, but I have firefox mobile as well. on my netbook that has no memory or hard drive to speak of, I have both chrome and firefox. Chrome loads and works faster, but the netbook is seriously without capacity, it's useful for internet access and email and that is about it.
I used Firefox for a very long time, but last summer it started having fits with my Hulu video. Froze all the time and made me very angry. Switched to Chrome.
I don't dislike Chrome, and it seems very lightweight and quick, but I miss Firefox. Perhaps one day I'll have the energy to make the three or four clicks required to get Firefox again, but right now, I just... can't... oof. So many clicks.
Been using Chrome. I've played with Fire Fox and don't yet "get it." It seems to have more "moving parts" that I have to set up. That's very flexible, but I'm not a "techie" and don't really want to be one.
Right now my IE is Alpha Fox Uniform. An update caused it to become corrupted. There is a "fix" but it's kind of complex and I'm not in the mood to fix something that I don't use anyway. My son IS a techie and I may let him fix it next time he comes to visit.
I use Chrome and really like it. Dolphin for my cell phone Internet, too. Excited for the ability to synch bookmarks and tabs with chrome, just haven't gotten around to moving onto that browser for my phone.
