Chrome works fine, as does it's (chinese) offspring CoolNovo (has sidebar option).
    I agree that Firefox works quite well. As for Metro....to be honest I don't use it at all on my non touchscreen desktop. The biggest reason why I upgraded to 8 is performance, not touchscreen support.

    I prefer Palemoon 64 bit, but, that is what it boils down to "personal preference" does it not? The difference in "speed" of all
    the browsers comes down to a few seconds. Firefox and it's cousins ( palemoon, nightly,etc) does enjoy an advantage when
    it comes to ad-ons. imho

    I have found that Google Chrome 'Aw snaps' more often than I eat cook dinners!

    As said above it's personal preference. I prefer google chrome because I usually have 10-20 tabs open, and it handles them well despite the high RAM usage.

    Windows 8

    UIWindows mode


    I have read through a lot of forums and plenty of tests and none seem to mention that Chrome and IE 10 can also be launched in UIWindows mode. How?


    Chrome:
    Click menu button
    click "Relaunch Chrome in Windows 8 mode"
    To undo:
    click chrome menu button
    click "Relaunch Chrome on the desktop"

    IE10:
    Set as default browser.

    Most of my Linux builds are older ones (pre-2006) so I've just finished installing Mint 14 'Cinnamon' into Virtual-Box. I haven't
    had much of a chance to play with it yet, but, so far, I definitely like what I see.

    I'll explore it a bit more tomorrow.

    Wenda.
