Windows 7: Latest Browser Stats

12 Nov 2010   #21

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit Build 7600 / Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3

Well... I always use FF, just because I can use Download Status bar (very useful to monitor multiple downloads)... Is sad that IE has no extentions like this, or no one is interested on developing for this browser... Although, is my second option and very reliable (by now I'm with IE8, I don't like to test beta software that is critical for system stability).

BTW, just for a lil' statement, IE will always be faster than any other browser (at least on startup and some stuff) because is integarted with Windows, In other words, there are libraries and system files that are already loaded in memory when you boot into windows, then, IE can be loaded faster because part of its core is already loaded (the OS alredy uses that for explorer.exe functions)

I guess that, just by now, the challenge is still between IE and FF...

See ya!!!

I installed and uninstalled Chrome several times (early versions and back when I was XP Pro32), when IE was getting slower and slower loading several popular sites on a recommendation I reinstalled Chrome and now I use it almost exclusively. I'm curious to see if IE will improve and I can jump back again.
