As I understood IE is the new Netscape, Safari is the new IE, Firefox is the new Safari, Edge takes Firefox's place and Chrome keeps its top position as Chrome.
It's all quite confusing.
Meanwhile we had to tell a customer we agreed to not support IE7 because they standardized on IE8 and would now standardize on IE10 just last Friday
That is running on a slightly older laptop (yes, a weaker CPU, limited RAM). Chrome runs like a pig and sucks the batter dry in no time. And the "solution" from them, remove/disable your add-ons and don't open more then a few tabs at once, or IN OTHER WORDS run it in simpleton ugly mode that makes it perhaps all of 0.001% better then say, Edge.
Once upon a time MS would make their on-going software releases always ever more power hungry, necessitating buying better-new equipment to support each new version. MS have grown out of that phase (only by a little bit). Seems the kiddies at chrome central are just reaching their puberty and it's them that get turned on by the need for speed and power.
Firefox works everywhere WITH add-ons that make a browser truly useful,
chrome: mega-fails and sucks (in both senses of 'suck'),
edge: Answer: "who the f* knows", Question "WTF is edge supposed to be?",
and safari: - left the room how many years ago? (Just behind Elvis from memory.)
Sin tack ear lol

I really wish they would revert to the XP functionality for searching for files on your computer using Windows Explorer. Even with indexing on and tweaked, there are times where you just cannot find the files you are looking for even though that worked in Windows XP.

Yep, they broke that completely, replacing it with that crappy 'content:' argument, which never f***ing works anyway.
Not to mention the sh*tty networking on windows 7, private, home and network! The number of times when I reboot and lose my network I have to jiggle around with this crap to get it to work! And then the 'opening a folder in explorer and it takes 20 seconds to find a few files'. Just WTF did they screw up there?
And the footprint of the OS compared to XP. 90 MB compared to over a gig. Not to mention junk like defender, smartfetch and the other 'we know better than you do' crap they load it with.
