  3. That was a very insightful article. As the title explains,
    most of Windows users now use IE just for downloading Chrome or Firefox. However,
    now the situation is going to change with IE10. It’s fast and more secure....

  4. Lets keep our fingers crossed and hope IE 10 comes up with something valuable , as in the past IE has come up with very few updates but is evolving in right deirection and all those updates didn't help actually.

  5. Yeah Chrome is the Best Browser in all areas .

  6. Did someone pay you to write this article for Google? Kinda stating the obvious here, even though I prefer Firefox.

  7. Firefox is not good, its helps hackers to attack and in identity theft too. last week someone able to login my Wordpress site and cPanel account too, just coz i saved my passwords in Firefox. thats why I only prefer Google chrome as it is more secure.

  8. Pretty sure you messed up otherwise. Also, why are you saving your cPanel password to a browser? That's carelessness given how important server credentials are. I still prefer Firefox (I use Pale Moon, a customized version of Firefox). It's more stable than Chrome especially because I leave it running for weeks at a time. Chrome tends to get resource heavy and sluggish pretty quickly for me and I don't even use plugins.

  9. its an opinion., and i knw you also agree with that as you haven't come up with some advantage of IE .

  10. .I respect your thoughts but its an opinion., and i know you also agree with that as you haven't come up with some advantage of IE

  11. @facebook-1411876132:disqus Yeah Chrome is bit more secure than Mozilla Firefox . Chrome is totally against browser hijacking as chrome has announce no more silent extension install in chrome 25 . That's a very good news

  12. but sometimes Chrome can not display some elements of a website, so still need IE

  13. can you give some example please? I would like to see that .

  14. hhmm, let see like this from this web dropdown menu under "kata pencarian" doesn't work. Or just my chrome? work in Firefox and IE

  15. @devilpenakut:disqus : they are working fine , may be you are using too older version of chrome .

  16. I use 23.0.1271.97 m, too old? Or it disadvantage from chrome browser?

  17. Its working fine , there must be some issues on your side.

  18. i dont know, either i use windows or mac that issues still there

  19. Google Chrome seamless integration with Android and Google account.

  20. Yes, you were correct with the post! IE always says to download google chrome. i feel this the only microsoft applications that totally has become less used around the globe.
