    You can install Chrome side-by-side with IE, so if you don't like simply uninstall it. It's not a reversion case !

    Opera is pretty stable.
    You can try it & uninstall it if you don't like it.
    Chrome & IE crashed on me too much.

    IE may not be the fastest browser, but why? I can't stop thinking that other browsers are faster because they have less tight security verification algorithms.

    Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 10 is better at blocking malware downloads than rivals Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera thanks to superior URL and application reputation technology, a new test by NSS Labs has found.

    Browser security has been getting more and more layered and complex. How it works and whether it works is probably a complete mystery to even the most attentive browser users but the NSS Labs study found marked and surprising differences between the most popular browsers.

    After testing the latest version of each of the five browsers against 754 malware-infected URLs over 28 days, IE10 (running on Windows 8) achieved a raw block rate of 99.9 percent, ahead of Chrome’s 83.1 percent, Firefox’s 10 percent, Safari’s 9.9 percent and Opera’s 1.8 percent.
