Browser
#1
I have just bought myself a netbook, after using my HTC Tytn2 to do most of my surfing for the last 18 months.  Thus this 10inch screen looks huge!

I have always used Firefox in the past, and Opera Mobile on my mobile, but does anybody here have a suggestion for a good quick browser that isnt going to eat my resources too much?

Cheers

Agreed. Ive used Firefox a lot. I just wondered if something else might be a little lighter... Opera or the Google browser for example.

Out of interest (and i'm expecting a barrage here) - why is Firefox better than IE?  OK so my IE runs pretty crap and slow but i assumed that was down to my modestly specced laptop and basic broadband connection.  I know we all hate Microsoft etc but i also i know there are technical reasons why it is better - just wondered what they were.

much faster and 20000000x more secure your literally offering your card details to criminals on a plate using IE ... i also like how much you can customize on it ... switch to it and be impressed Tongue

It just is.... It's always gettng updated, blocks sites and popups very well etc.

Was the first to introduce tabbed browsing which is awesome (although ie has it now)

There's a whole host of plugins for it, I've got one which allows you to download YouTube videos and other videos that stream online.
