Default Goodbye Chrome

After crashing three times in the last few days whilst posting on the forum and losing everything, I'm saying goodbye to Chrome and sticking with Firefox which has never given me problems. Chrome does have some nice features but it's not worth the agro.

I gave up on Chrome after 2 days. Some sites didn't look right or it would crash. Tried Opera, Avant, and Maxthon and went back to Firefox. Stable for the most part and I like the add-ons.

I tried it Harry for about 2 hours and got rid of it. Kept crashing and couldn't navigate to well on it. So I went back to IE now on fire fox the best move I've made yet.

I've just installed it Maurice. First impressions are that it may be a little faster than Firefox, I haven't figured out how to transfer my favorites list from Firefox, some help here will be appreciated.

Mark, it's SAFARI that I'm now playing with and all that I've read say to go to "File>Import Bookmarks" the trouble is I can't find such a thing on the home page!

Did you export the bookmarks in FF?

Thanks a heap Mike, once I saw a screen shot of the home page, I realized that I had no menu bar! playing with it for a while finally got me a menu bar, from then on the instructions made sense.

Yeah they have it here at the motel. It wants to take over everything. I think that is the problem with the laptop.
