Best browser for Windows 7 64-bit

What are your guy's opinions on the browser selection for Windows 7?

I'm currently running Firefox 3.5.3, but I'm not happy with its performance in 64-bit Windows. I get a lot of crashes while watching videos, and poor performance (some full screening some videos will result in lag).

Does anyone know if Chrome run better in 7?

I'm using Google Chrome. The best browser out there! Fast and reliable. I haven't given Opera 10 a shot yet, but it seems like it's got great support with Win 7.

I downloaded and now use the Minefield releases of Firefox. It's the latest build and they are running extremely fast for me on Win7 and I've had no issues to speak of. So, maybe you can just give this a try...rather than having to move completely away from Mozilla firefox.

I used to think so too. I've been on Mozilla's side since Fx 2.0. Changed my mind immediately when I used Chrome the first time! Firefox feels so cluttered and bulky compared to Chrome. But that's just personal taste.

sorry chrome is fine if you want a browser with almost no features.

Well, it has support for user-scripts, and will have an even bigger repository of them soon.

I think I'll try Fx Minefield the following days. Heard it's faster than Chrome. If it is, I'll go back to the furry fox

Microsoft could launch a completely new browser with Windows 10 | VentureBeat | Business | by Harrison Weber A lot of people think IE is slow. To me, the older the computer, the slower IE is. I am wondering if this new browser will be available for all versions of Windows. What do y'all think?
