I am using IE <spit> at the moment. For some peculiar reason, yacf (& nothing else) was flaky on FF & BT.
I gave up with FF after I could not reply to a thread after >60 min and tweeting Dez.
Please forgive...

I'm in the "if your browser doesn't support proper standards don't moan about my webapp because i ahve more important things to do than making it work for broken browsers, just get a proper browser mkay?" camp. IE8 or higher. FF or one of the various webkit browsers such as Chrome or Safari.

I don't like FF 10 after two days of use. 3.6 was great but we are all expected forced to change to FF 10 in the near future.

What is the best alternative Browser as I'm ready for a probable change?

What's wrong with it - it seems much the same as any other version of Firefox.

Chrome.

Also - and I'm probably alone in this - I like IE with XP because it gives the option to use Cleartype for HTML even when Cleartype is otherwise turned off.

Well, I don't like the Office black look. There are no alternatives to choose at present.
Since FF5 all versions freeze my computer and FF 10 is still annoyingly the same. I have never had that problem with 3.6.
There are no colourful tabs available for FF 10. I like them because of  eyesight issues.
It slows my computer down  terribly compared to 3.6 which was always very fast. I have loads of memory and disk space.

I use Ubuntu which has now adopted FF 10 as it's standard - buggar.

So I'll look at chrome for starters and ???

So I discovered that Chromium is the Chrome Browser for Ubuntu.

Started trying it and identified that it doesn't have a menu bar or coloured tabs. However when I pin my main website pages, the tabs get shortened and are in the colour of the website which is OK for my poor eyesight. The bookmarks were also a new learning curve which still needs some more improvement from me.

Otherwise I think I will stick with Chromium as it hasn't frozen my computer like FF 10 was doing.

I was 100% FireFox until recently.  Then I started to use am under powered laptop and switched to chrome.  Chrome used less RAM.
Now,  I am often reading yacf on the train using the HTC phone browser

I use Chrome and love it.  It seems to encourage FB chat to behave better, whereas it was constantly freezing the whole browser experience with FF.

I keep FF on my computer for the occasional website that won't support Chrome...mostly horsey ones (notoriously low-tech in general) and oddly the Royal Opera House's ticketing software!   :facepalm:

I'm loving the Add-Ons available for Firefox.  I spent a solid couple of hours last night trying new ones.

I think I'll delete White on Black, though.

I think I'm about to ditch Firefox.  Just finding it a bit quirky now.  e.g. tonight lovefilm instant not working on FF (no yellow play triangle), but this works fine on Chrome...

Same here. On the home computer, I've been using Firefox for most purposes (including browsing yacf), for a few years but recently I've been getting messages warning me that it no longer supports my OS (OS X 10.5.8) and occasionally behaves in a slightly flaky fashion so I'm probably going to have to change one or the other.

To answer the OP, I mostly use Tapatalk so I checked "other", but I guess that as an iPhone app, it's technically some kind of shell based on Safari, right?

I've just realised that none of the devices I use regularly to access the web even have IE installed. And I've never once missed it. (Admittedly, all the devices I use regularly are Steveware, so maybe it's not really that surprising.)

Just binned FF 20 and gone back to Chromium. Browsing vastly improved as a result :thumbsup:
