When you say 'slow' what exactly do you mean?? When I search my results are instant - if you are cribbing over a second or two then do you not think you might be getting a bit anal or spoilt - for want of a better word or two

In my experience, "slow" was Firefox taking upwards of 20 seconds to load any page I wanted to view.

Never happened to me, any issues I ever had was to do with my ISP, AOL, but that is a thing of the past since I moved to Virgin

You also have to understand that net-neutrality is a thing of the past and phone company's will favour themselves when it comes to internet access and will drop your connection when it suits them

You can make custom skins for Chrome too can't you? I swear I saw the option somewhere...

One thing I like about Chrome is that it barely has any skin.

I have never has a speed issue with FF. I have an Android phone and a Gmail account as my main email address so I think Google have enough. I did switch my default browser to Bing and can't say I have any complaints/ notice any difference in the results.

Have an old Fujitsu Amilo laptop with XP pro that I use for basic web browsing and Chrome had far too large a footprint for it. Ties the system in knots within a minute or two.

I started using Pale Moon as the main browser and it's a snappy little performer. I have adblock plus installed and it's a joy to use.

I prefer Chrome because you can drag the tabs around. Handy if you're switching between websites intermittedly but have lots of tabs open which for some reason you don't want to close (e.g. if a download is in progress).

You can drag tabs in Firefox too.

Didn't know that before. Just tested it now and you're right sorry.

One thing to keep in mind with FireFox and most other programs,
is that they run automatic updates in the background.
If you've had a version of the browser for some time it has had patch after patch after patch after patch after patch...
you get the drift. So the browser starts running slow or maybe a little glitchy.
Best solution is to do a fresh install.
But what about all your settings? Passwords? Bookmarks? How do you save all those?

There is an easy way to do it.

A utility named MozBackup will save everything for you.
Then you delete the old patchy version.
Do a fresh install of the latest version, then run MozBackup to restore your customization.

You can get MozBackup here:
