Web browser

Ok I'm going to be re installing windows on my laptop and I will need a good web browser but I've been having problems with them all the time with Firefox and google chrome with them always not responding and crashing ... So what browser do you think I should use ?

I'd recommend you install IE9 for contingencies, such as pages reliant on Silverlight...

But otherwise Opera, which really flies...

Your web browser uses other component like Adobe Flash, Java, etc.
Make sure that's it all updated. Firefox 10, 10.1 and 10.2 have been quite stable.
I haven't had a single Firefox crash. So if Google and Firefox are both crashing, more than likely it's not the browsers.

Install all the browsers for a week & give them all a workout before deciding which one to keep.
Open help from each browser & try & learn a little about them.

Agree with Sardonicus about the browsers not being the cause , type device manager into the Start search box & see if you have any problems.

My recommendation Opera.

Which browser should I use?
In my START MENU, there are two entries for Internet Explorer. One says just Internet Explorer and the other says Internet Explorer (64-bit). My Dell is a 64-bit -- should I be using that one rather than the "plain" IE??? Thanks for your help. Windsorlady
