In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Ive been on Firefox basically since it came out, but ive noticed recently, especially after I got a new laptop with Windows 8 pre-installed on it, that the ole fox seems to crash more than it needs to.

What are you guys using? Anyone else notice if Firefox has indeed, been getting shitter? Or is it just windows 8 (which sucks anyway)?

I'm using Chrome. It's pretty reliable, rarely if ever crashes, a lot less clutter than Firefox seems to have nowadays. Just a cleaner interface. An all around stable, nice, fast browser.

Chrome. Sync your browser between computer and mobile devices, log in to your browser anywhere.... etc.

Firefox crashes, IE sucks and Chrome is a resource hog. You take what you can get but I try to use Firefox since my laptop sucks and chrome really bogs me down.

Firefox, it's always been good to me and hardly ever crashes.

Your experience is not the same as everyone else's Razz.

I like the idea of Chrome having all my stuff across desktop and mobile, but I've tried the Chrome mobile browser and it sucks. Runs poorly, loads pages oddly, and has the buttons and features in locations I'm not used to.

I use Firefox on my PC and Safari on my mobile.

It's all about the Chrome. Although It is definitely not the open source lightweight browser it was originally loved for.

Firefox has more vulnerability than chrome. The FBI even used these known vulnerabilities to take over a Anonymous node and had it auto run a script that took advantages of these vulnerabilities and revealed the IPs and locations of reporters, whistleblowers, undercover agents, and other people trying to protect themselves through anonymity.

Firefox on my desktop, Chrome on my iPad.

Firefox is fast and reliable, but in all fairness, I haven't really given Chrome much of a chance on PC. Maybe I should, because Firefox won't open some files, like .swf and sometimes PDFs.

I prefer Chrome to Safari on my iPad, even though neither are really that good. Both of them like to crash on me, but Chrome is faster and can recover some things from a crash.

Also, hey look! piracer.

Yeah i use safari on my iphone - using chrome seems a little pointless for me on that.

I sometimes use chrome when certain websites or files dont seem to work on firefox.

I feel like this stability thing might be caused by Windows 8 then. I have a pretty new laptop with 16 gigs of RAM, that i cant blame it on the hardware...

And yes, me!
