    CP Cripples Chrome?


    Does anyone else find Google Chrome horribly slow on the CP compared to other browsers and to Chrome on Windows 7? Especially streaming video and interactive sites?

    No. It runs great for me on both XP Pro and Win8.

    Firefox crash, crash and then some more crashes for my brother about 2 years ago when playing those stupid Facebook games like Farmville, Mafia Wars. Found it was from Flash. Then I also found that its LSOs were causing it (a.k.a. super cookies that track you.)

    On Firefox, BetterPrivacy can delete them with each browser close or a timer. It's what I use and keeps Flash running great.

    Here is how you can clear Flash and it works for any and all browsers (system-wide clearing):

    AdobeClearFlash

    I'm half way through watching The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, so I'm gonna return to it now. Hope there is some hacking in the second half like imdb claims is in the movie.

    Ehhh the movie was fairly good but she had a damn Apple. What kinda hacker uses Apple? I was expecting to see Windows because of how mainstream it is, or even a Linux variant, well, because it's *nix.

    The movie didn't convince me that she could hack her way out of a wet paper bag but I suppose if we suspend our disbeliefs here and put them on pause for movie purposes, it told the story they wanted to tell. Not bad at all but could have been better and definitely should have been more technical.

    Perhaps it's just Microsoft exerting parental controls then Flashing not allowed!
    Anyway in Hollywood, the good guys always use Apples.

    No, it was Flash in Incognito windows - the plug-in wasn't being started properly.
