I tried it, didn't like it.

There's loads of bugs with it, it is hard to copy and paste, to insert links on here, and in emails, and you can't use it to watch online, such as 4OD.

There's also the fact of googles questionable privacy protection, and storing of user data which I don't like.

I'd recommend you try firefox mozilla, it's the best by far. And also free.

Thanks for that TDWP, I've not had any probs so far, I inserted that link without a hitch. But I will look out for it. I have tried Firefox mozilla before, a couple of years ago and found it had a similar speed to IE, has it improved greatly of late? Also can you use Firefox for 4OD, I thought it had to be IE?
Also I wasn't aware of the Google's controversial privacy protection and the storing of user data, could you fill me in on that one? I've tried having a look online but there's pages of stuff...could use a summary! thanks

There are lots of issues.

This is a start

Firefox is great, download the new version, and then download updates whenever available. There is an add on now that lets you watch 4od.

thanks for that, yes a tad scary - even though I only use one pc, this one at home that only my family have access too but still get you on the data sharing, thanks for the tip off, downloading firefox as I type! smile

Didn't like it either.
Will stick to what I know.
