I also tried Chrome, but that put x3 instances of usage on the task manager, ended up using more than fifefox!
Maybe I try Thunderbird? And keep Firefox?
Yeah this 1 doesn't have that feature, and I'm not sure if any of this major ones do. unless there is any kind of plugin/add-on. I'll keep on researching and see what I can come up with. As of Thunderbird I never personally used it.

Personally i use firefox but for slower computers i like Opera 10.
its light weight and nice looking. alot of people think google chrome is the best lightweight browser but its just too glitchy right now, maybe in future releases.

so my recommendation is opera 10.

This is totally depends on you which browser is best for you.

The most common three browsers are Internet Explorer 9, Firefox and Google Chrome.

Internet Explorer 9 : A best well integrated browser in windows 7. Fast and the GUI feels like chrome. I love the pin sites function offered by IE 9.

Firefox : Another browser. If you love add-ons like me then give Firefox a try. Thousands of add-ons, themes make Firefox a customizable browser. Yes it sometimes eats too much RAM, but it still beats IE 9 and chrome in terms of addons.

Chrome : What to say about this browser! It is a extremely lightweight browser with awesome lighting speed. This is my favorite browser!

The above opinions are my personal. Feel free to choose among this three browsers which suits you best!:)

If you want to use Internet Explorer, then one of the adoption of IE would be Maxthon 2.5.18. I find it to be easy to use and enhances the functionality of IE. I have been using this browser for more than 6 years and very happy with the performance.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

I totally love Opera browser. I have been using for over 10 years and find it has everything I need (including email) andis fast, fast, fast.

Never really had any problems and always got answer on the Opera Forum. But, with the Opera 47 release the download buttons on You tube are gone and I can only download by pasting the URL into Nuclear Coffee and using that.

I got an answer on the forum and he said that it is because You Tube is not renewing licenses to software companies who made the extensions. He suggested asking the company that made the extension to give updates or going back to old version of Opera. I went back to 36 and still no change. Could not contact any extension companies.

If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate them. Thanks in advance.

But bare in mind that if you want an efficient browser capable of opening pages and playing videos then it needs RAM.
I also tried Opera but the old one before the original developer left which was very good but the one you get now got problems, same thing for Opera mobile.
I suggest you either try SRWare Iron or Cent Browser (both using Chrome engine), they are very good!

Hope this browser works for you.

I've attached the latest version of this web browser below

Heres a review of the beta, which is very close to the final release I posted above:
Cool . i am using the Google Opera , it's nice, but it also takes up some memory , it's inevitable
