    Bad Browsers IMO.

    Opera Stable ---
    Version: 15.0.1147.153

    gives me no problems at all.

    I saw in the survey he was talking about Opera 12.
    I did have some issues with version 12.

    Since upgrading to version 15, I'm as happy as a hog eating warm mash.
    Since I had problems with IE 10 & Chrome maybe whatever caused the crashes has been fixed.
    Just like The problems with Opera 12 were addressed in Opera 15.
    Browsers are constantly changing.
    Very true.

    Opera v12.... is the last version using the Presto engine. This version has been very stable.
    Opera 15 and above are using the Chromium engine, seems to be stable for me, just hope they get back more of the Opera 12 features in the new versions. They are working on them.

    Also use IE10/11 occasionally, haven't had any crashes, yet.

    No stats on FF...

    Superfly, 99% of websites don't need javascript at all but they are all full of it. And there is no norm or reference about javascript. That's the problem. And it's too late to establish norm now because most of the websites are bloated with huge scripts that nobody is able to modify or improve.

    I've used IE with Win 95, 98, 2000 and XP. My problem started with IE7 on XP. It carried over to IE8. EVERY webpage I hit IE gave me script errors. Reinstalling IE didn't help.

    I said FU IE and installed Firefox. Haven't looked back since. Firefox has given me far fewer problems than 1 version of IE.

    I use both Firefox and Chrome. They both crash or fail to update once every blue moon. The best two browsers for performance and reliability. Opera isn't bad when I did try it years ago.
