    New Internet Browser (Not Opera or IE)

    Hiya, been using Opera for a while and this new update of theirs is poo.** So im gonna attempt to switch to a different one. I'd like the mouse gestures and the blank page which has pictured links in them. Does Chrome do this? or could you recommend another browser which will work bug free? tried firefox but it doesnt have the link thing i use so much.

    ** Why is it poo? (1) occasionally cannot be compatible with Gmail for some reason, even though i use it everyday and most of the time is fine. (2) doesnt like Facebook too much or very java like web pages..!
    HOWEVER it does have this new function of auto spellcheck which is great! if there is that option ava. in another browser it'll be good.

    any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Unfortunatly FireFox doesnt have that image link thing on the blank page which Opera has. Isnt Safari from Macs?

    I love google chrome.....

    I can't wait for the google chrome operating system coming soon. Maybe that is why Win 7 is shipping for bargain prices...

    i use opera - i much prefer it over firefox

    horses for courses i suppose


    but

    if you do use firefox, you can use a loads of separate add-ons (google firefox add ons) including speed dial which i think is what you are referring to

    Yes but you can still download it to a microsoft pc

    Google Chrome is beautiful. As Chiptivo said, I cannot wait for OS!

    try using operas identify/mask as IE if you have problems..

    fifrefox - has mouse gestures and there is bound to be an add-on for image links

    Try Avant Browser. I use Firefox, but prefer Avant.

    You could try K-Meleon.

    I think its a new feature (or at least new to me...) on facebook, try it on IE but basically on your status or when your posting you can type "@" and a letter, it will suggest things for you to tag or link. E.G. "@John Smith profile pic is shocking" It will give you a link to the person/event/link you are talking about. But again thats just one of few examples in general that opera it seems cannot handle :-(

    I tried Masked or Identity as IE but no joy, :thinking: I d/l'd chrome and i have no idea how to add addons..! lol but i havent played aorund with it yet...

    google chrome is easily the best
