    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center

    Firefox rules. Chrome is terrible, from its inability to provide a Bookmarks pane to its disappearing in-page seach field to its inability to work right with various web sites. This was a year ago when I last tried Chrome.

    That wasn't specifically aimed at you.

    It was for adamf and Dave76 (and other forum viewers in general).

    It was an addition related to post #8.

    Windows 8.1 + StartIsBack + AeroGlass

    Firefox has been lagging behind Chrome for several years now in terms of performance and security. I still use it because text rendering is better, it's more customizable, and as a bonus, I'd rather use a product from Mozilla Foundation than one coming from Google. I'm still worried about their long-term sustainability though.
