    I dislike the fonts in Opera but I like the speed, my personal preference IE10.

    EDIT: Waterfox 18 works fine.

    Actually, your original subject implies the question, "What's the best browser for Windows 8?" which is quite subjective. And the question in your post asks what browser "... does the job". In order to answer the latter, I'd need to know what "the job" is. If you're asking what people currently use or prefer, I use and like Firefox. But that probably doesn't help with your situation.

    Not meaning to interrogate. Just looking for information that might guide toward providing a helpful answer.
    Its ok. Maybe I am being a perfectionist. I want/expect a browser that does not let me dowm. Does not freeze, integrates with Win 8 perfectly and causes zero hassle? I tried waterfox but Kaspesky reported malware content. I do not use any toolbars except for whats on it, and do not allow downloads with 'other software. Just noticed something though with landscape 6.8. Win 8 reports that 'You are using a version of Firefox which Gmail no longer supports. Some features may not work correctly. Upgrade to a modern browser, such asG oogle Chrome. Dismiss', ouch!

    Well goodbye Lunarscape. I closed the browser, went to make a drink ,came back and opened something else except it didn't. Lunarscape is still closing down, please wait. Bugger! This was the same fault as with firefox and why I binned it. Ah well, Maxthon, your next.

    Maxthon binned - way too slow to open.

    Pale Moon x64 - get the x86 version if you use plugins that do not support x64 browsers (extensions work fine).
