So far, I have sampled three browsers; Google Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge. Firefox is good except for frequent crash issues whereas I do not like edge's interface. What are your preferences and are there any other ones that you can recommend?

Between Opera and Chrome.......it's a toss-up. Firefox has been crashing a lot lately so I don't use it much anymore. Opera though has been good for me lately, so I use that one the most.

Is there a web version of Opera? I think I will try it out soon. Chrome is still my preferred choice because of its stability. Can you sync your data with the other browsers?

I am a long time user of Firefox (decades) and it has almost never crashed. I can't remember the last time. It is on all 4 of my PCs. One problem might be the add ons and plug ins you use. There were problems with Adobe Flash a few months back. It was Adobe's issue not Firefox. Be sure you are using the latest versions of everything as well.

Good Listening

Personally, I had no idea that this had anything to do with Adobe; everybody seemed to be heaping the blame on Firefox. I will try going back to this browser then see how everything goes.

I like Opera the best with FF coming in at a close second. Chrome is just too "busy" for my taste. I like my system simple and streamlined and Opera is perfect for me in that regard.

I finally settled on Google Chrome and it's been a smooth sail so far. I have not had any luck with downloading Opera but it if I succeed, it will have to be my second best option.
