    I always follow and test all the main browsers but I prefer a small fork of Chrome called CoolNovo, formerly ChromePlus.

    It's Chrome with extra functions really useful for me.

    For the rest, people who compare Internet Explorer to Chrome or Firefox are by definition using their browsers on a very basic mode and are probably not very advanced or heavy users.

    What makes Chrome the number one is the extensions, just like Firefox before. I couldn't even think of returning to the old days of a browser without extensions, such as IE.

    I'm one of those basic users, I just use IE to browse the net. Not quite sure what else you would do with it.

    I use firefox because it has an extension that allows you to download and save youtube videos. It creates a download button below the video where you can download videos in varies formats including mp4 1080p hd. Crome used to have this extension but for unknown reasons they pulled the extension which was a shame because I liked using crome.

    I saw you talk about coolnovo Kmint, does it use cromes extension store ?

    Yes, CoolNovo is just Chrome and uses Chrome's extensions.

    I have been using it since version 1 years ago and whenever I have tried other browsers I miss the unique extra features of CoolNovo that can't be got even through extensions.

    I think that is quite insulting really. I use browsers that 'do the job for me' not because I am a nerd user or anything else. I have 19-20 web sites and used to build my own pc's. And also, remember, that nobody knows the answer to anything until they are told it.

    And, as a user of both IE and Firefox, from way back when it was Netscape Navigator, I thought so, too.

    Also, I wonder which IE he's used, as I have several extensions and add-ins on my IE10.


    There are some quite patronising posters here, but I usually choose not to engage...

    You guys should check out Pale Moon/64 (Windows optimized version of Firefox).. It ran great on Win7, apart from the fact, that the initial load of the browser was a bit slow. But on Win8 it even loads fast and it is blazing fast and uses less ram than on 7 (I know because on one of the million and one extensions), even though I restored my old profile with 29 cookie blocking, https finding extensions.

    I haven't tried Opera64 yet, but I will check that out. IE10 is fine, but I guess once you get used to the massive amount of extensions, it is hard to settle for less.. I ditched Chrome a while ago. It doesn't feel as fast, as it used to do, but more importantly I just felt like the entire browser was one giant key logger, and frankly I'm not comfortable with Google Brother watching my every move.. Some times I use Chromium for development though..
