Windows 7: Is Your Browser Slow?

Is Your Browser Slow?

If you answered YES, then probably you are using Internet Explorer. I used IE for ten years or more. This past weekend the baseball site I frequent forced me to switch due to an overhaul of their site. I am now using Firefox 11 and it is much, much faster. If yours is slow, give Firefox a whirl. == Hopefully this will be a paid advertisement.

what i have noticed id there is so much rich text/content with HTML5 web pages containing so much more information etc to download before you get to read the website that if your internet connection is not to good with speed and the bandwidth is small this can be a factor of slow loading, plus it does your browser good to delete history, cookies, caches etc every once in a while.

For me either Firefox or chrome is faster and better then IE.

I'm a big fan of Opera... the only browser that i have found that matches the speed (in my personal experience) is Chrome but I'm not the biggest fan of the browser.

Opera Speed Dial and Mouse Gestures are used very frequently

I do feel sorry for opera, it's a little underrated in my opinion, i have known a few people that have never even heard of it but when i have shown them they have liked it a lot and switched over.
