"A real Browser?/"


          

You guys have been my go to for many years, So I have to ask. Is there a real Good fast browser out there? Chrome crashes constantly (updated, install, uninstalled, etc, Nothing changes. Ie is slightly better. I don't like Edge. Just got my De;; 5567 Back from dell ( the one with the startup issues). Seems a 6 mo. old PC needed a new MB, SSD, Power cord!It is fine but it just seems whatever I use for a browser is just not satisfactory! No malware, I use SAS paid, and Malewarebytes. I use Windows defender security suite for my Av ( yes I know there is a battle as to if it is or not an AV, But it works for me. So,,,, Suggestions??

I have started using Cent Browser and really like it.
There is a portable version if you want to try it.

Well, as every time I try to download it, from any browser it says 2 hours.... and takes forever to even load, I am not sure about that.

I see what you mean, I just tried it, same here.
I think it must be a temporary hitch, I hope so!
I can assure you I had no trouble when I initially downloaded it and of course the browser itself is great imho.

It must have been a temporary glitch. It just took me all of 10 seconds to download it.

Windows did throw up a warning window that the software is unknown when I started to install it. I allowed it to install, and made a few minor tweaks to the settings - it's not going to be my default browser, for example - and it installed smoothly.

I have no need for another browser so I will uninstall it. It seems very similar to another browser I downloaded awhile back named "Secure Browser" - not too imaginative a name. https://www.securebrowser.com/

Jim.

So who are they?
They also seem to be "https://www.safer.com/", but I'm unable to "connect" to them?

How do you download the browser (not that I actually want to)?
I'm seeing no "download" button?

Newegg.com's new image gallery layout sucks in the hugest way imaginable too !
And now they're using JavaScript to "turn" pages to boot ! SUCKS

There's a big orange button on the home page plus a link for the portable version.

EDIT:
Sorry therube, I thought you were replying to my post

Well, before I got to do anything, my newly fixed pc , returned by dell 12 days ago had a total meltdown. So , i finally reinstalled again, and for now I am Not touching anything,lol. So, I will use edge and be a happy camper as sometimes my "tweaking" gets me into trouble.

You probably like Internet Explorer 11 less than Edge, but if not, it's still included with Win 10.

There's even free Edge blocking software to keep Edge from ever showing its face again.

And, while customizing your computer can indeed get you into trouble, is life without tweaking really worth living?

Jim

Oh Jim, that is my problem! It is not worth living without tweaking.....lol. I have never liked IE. I took my first pc apart in 2000 using you guys always for guidance always,,, so you have all read some of my "oops" I did it again. But at this point it is running and starting fast, so until my 500 SSD comes in this week, I will leave it alone. I have fumbled my way thru replacing ssd and got it to work. Thanks guys for not calling me a dumb kitten....

I just googled for a download location as I too see no link on the Secure Browser page I posted.

https://en.softonic.com/download/secure-browser/windows/post-download?sl=1#

I had to click on the "Click here" link as the download didn't start
automatically.

I'm not saying it's anything special - just that it seemed similar to the Cent browser.

Jim.

Try Chrome Canary, or for something different, try the new Opera browser.

FWIW I have recently switched to Opera after many years of Firefox, and I'm liking it.

Normally it runs well. After the latest win 10 big upgrade, it was slow, and glitchy. I uninstalled, Reinstalled, etc. It is fine now.It has always been my fav.
