Default What web browser do you use? PC

I've always used Chrome...however, I notice in task manager it will have 4 or 5 Chrome listed all taking up a good chunk of memory.

Really runs slow here on campus.

I just installed Firefox and it runs much quicker.

So, what do you use?

Firefox at work and Home, with a few extensions, samples below:

• Adblock+ - ad/script blocker
• DownloadHelper
• DownThemAll
• Flashblock - blocks auto-play youtube in various forums, as well as the annoying flash advertisements that tend to autoplay
• FlashGot - similar to the other download helpers - multiple options sometimes is helpful
• Ghostery - ad/script blocker
• IEView - sometimes IE is needed, if in a hurry can open a new tab and view IE encapsulated within firefox instead of opening a separate session
• NoScript - ad/script blocker
• PixlrGrabber <-- great for screen grabbing, or "printing" pages when they have various chicanery trying to prevent you from doing so
• StumbleUpon - yeah, sometimes a diversion is necessary - I use it also sometimes to "bookmark" useful sites so I can easily access them from elsewhere

Chrome very intentionally uses a process per tab to do its thing. This way if a tab crashes, the rest of the browser is still usable. With how much Flash crashes, this is quite useful.

With those add-ins it sounds like you got yourself a pretty robust porn browser.
