I need a new browser

At least until I put Linux on this notebook. FireFox 21.0 is wierding out like IE6 on a lot of sites, including slashdot. I can't even change my sig.

What browser are you using?

All Firefox all the time (1)

GameboyRMH (1153867) | about a year ago | (#44187331)

Are you running a nightly build or a final release? I've gone through Firefox 21 recently on both Linux and Windows with no problems. Any plugins that could be causing it? (Firegloves makes a lot of sites "weird out")

Re:All Firefox all the time (1)

mcgrew (92797) | about a year ago | (#44193825)

No plugins at all. It's the release that FireFox pushes through.

Chromium (1)

Qzukk (229616) | about a year ago | (#44187603)

Chrome, without the excessively googly bits (if you don't trust that, there are several other builds of chromium that purport to do the same, though how much other crap they add differs).

As for

I can't even change my sig.

Given the history of this site, I wouldn't have jumped to the conclusion that it was my browser weirding out :)

As for me - FF & Chrome (1)

ancientt (569920) | about a year ago | (#44188619)

I'm using Firefox 22 on Linux Mint at the moment. As far as Extensions go: I have Adblock Plus, Flash-Aid, FoxyProxy, LastPass, Mint Search Enhancer (blek), and Stylish installed. As far as plugins go: Cinamon Integration, DivX Browser Plug-In, DivX Web Palyer, Google Talk Plugin, Google Talk Plugin Video Accelerator, Google Talk Plugin Video Renderer, IcedTea-Web Plugin, mplayerplug-in/gecko-mediaplayer, two QuickTimes, RealPlayer, Shockwave Flash 11,2,202,291, VLC Multimedia Plugin, Windows Media Player Plug-in and Windows Media Player Plug-in.

I'm also regularly using Google Chrome Version 28.0.1500.63.

Rarely used, I also have Arora, Opera and ELinks because sometimes I test things.

On my Windows installs, I typically use Chrome by preference with FF a close second. I have found IE10 to be pretty acceptable and use Opera for testing things from time to time.

Seamonkey (1)

fustakrakich (1673220) | about a year ago | (#44188641)

You can't go wrong with Seamonkey. More comfortable than a pair of old jeans. Accept no substitute.

Opera (1)

KGIII (973947) | about a year ago | (#44189541)

Opera... Seriously, they were once great then they kind of fell off the wagon for a bit but they're looking good again. They even support plugins now so you can get Greasemonkey and Ad-Block Plus. It's wonderful again. It's my second browser basically. I still rely on Firefox for most everything but I keep Opera around for when things get funky.

Shopping at the moment (1)

intermodal (534361) | about a year ago | (#44193869)

To be perfectly honest, I'm shopping for a browser myself. But I think I'm going to end up back on Firefox, since I've come to believe that it was a plugin or combination of plugins that was making it bad. I've been using Chromium at work for a while and am not overly impressed (on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS), Firefox and Chrome on my Windows 7 i686 desktop (it's going away today or Monday), installed Firefox 22 on the Gentoo box replacing it, and at home, I've used Firefox for everything except Tumblr, which is probably half my Firefox performance problem in the first place. Tumblr has been quarantined to Chromium.
