OK, I have a problem. I am using Chrome on Windows 7, but now I'm starting to think, since Chris drop-kicked Chrome to the sun, I might want to change to a different browser; does anybody have any ideas for alternatives?

Personally, I like Firefox on Windows. It's really improved since version 3.6 which we all have used.

I use over here besides IE, chrome, or safari. What about Opera as a alternate browser. I have used it before on windows, Linux, and on my wii console over here. It is another light weight web browser to work with when going onto the internet.

Opera is a bit...interesting.. It has a lot of great features and is fast and powerful but Chrome always just works for me. Opera is less demanding but also less popular meaning some sites don't display completely correct on Opera. I think if you went to Google actually, some of the links in the top black bar for Google would no longer be there. Or Microsoft and how they sometimes completely shut out Opera users.

Don't get me wrong its a great browser, but Firefox and Chrome just being more popular and more heavily supported, I would go with them...

I know jrdn it is just a matter of preferences as well. I am sure if we all dig deep enough there are other browsers out there that will do the same job. But might not be as popular as like firefox, google Chrome, IE or Safari.

I switch back and forth between Chrome and Firefox depending on what is faster and sometimes maybe Safari.

Whoa der. I actually like IE 10. IE 10 is pretty good though, haha. I wouldn't use it as my permanent browser but it's a good alternative.

IE10 is better, and its slowly moving in the correct path, but I still wouldn't use it... First of all, Microsoft doesn't update it enough to keep up with Google, Mozilla, or even Apple. IE10 still falls short on a lot of compatibility tests... IE is always the most insecure. IE is also, at least in my own usage, the most prone to crashing. So even if it did get better, still highly recommend NOT using IE.

Windows 8's version gets updated pretty frequently though...

@Jrdn, even though it says RTM, when I first installed 8 Pro, I got an update with everything else. I only use IE to run things that I just leave in the background, but none-the-less, it's a good alternative.

Yeah, I use something that looks like chrome so it's very convinient and easy to use. It's called torchbrowser and the reason that I'm using it is that it has a couple of cool built-in features so I can download music and movied completely free and super fast.
