You should email Google and ask them if they can splash MacDonalds adverts on the Chrome browser, and maybe a sponsorship for VLC from Nike.......its sure to go down very well.

Keep up the excellent suggestions

Let's hope that kf10 has a tough skin. Some of the replies are blunt to say the least.

I use Chrome on one website ( because Chrome does one thing (via a plug-in) that IE and Firefox do not do.

I'm not a big fan of build your own browser. I use too many different computers throughout the day. I need the browser to be/act that same on all of them... so IE it is (for the most part).

Firefox (the Pale Moon 64bit build) is what I use for this and other forums.

...not that anyone asked :-)

FF (whatever build) is a good choice, it's the most compatible with all the forum features.

The irony is, Chrome insists on downloading files that other browsers would just open in VLC if that is your default. The best you can do is set it to open in VLC after it downloads. You still have to manually delete the download. A Guy
