Don,

I use Chrome which is fast. But I do have IE 64bit and Firefox installed so why restrict yourself to just one browser.... ;D

Firefox fan here,IE lags in download loading of websites for me.Chrome leave remnants of visiting sites,when closed Firefox no trail left.Flash is a cpu consumer for me from web sites.The useful thing about Firefox and Chrome both have add-on,extensions to block or control flash.I found that there no escape from IE at times some times have revert to it.Try all three and see which works well for you at your end.

Hello Don,

One other choice might be "Comodo Dragon".  I dropped all the others and went to "Opera", and tried  Comodo Dragon just to see what it was like.  So far it has been stellar.   My wife has a 64 bit system and firefox and chrome were giving her fits.  Suggested she try Dragon, and she has been delighted.  If your using Comodo firewall and AV, it works very smoothly.

Regards,
Ron

Do you have personal preference.

Do you drive a Chevy or a Ford?...I use Chrome for it's simplistic design. I used Firefox in the past but it seems to have grown slow and bloated over the years. I still use their Thunderbird E-mail.

I would suggest Opera.
Been using it since you could buy it.
Now it's free.  No complaints. Regularly updated. User friendly etc.

Thanks you all for taking the time to comment. I'm going to give Firefox and Chrome a trial first...and take it from there.

Thanks again
