Love it or hate it but IE simply works. No it’s not as fast as the other browsers but it doesn’t crash, if it does it immediately reloads the page. People need to get past IE6-7, the worst browsers in History for security, since IE8 MS has done a great job of making it more secure and stable. Also MS has a 64 bit native browser, which is good because it can access more memory without it bogging down. Otherwise I use Chrome because its faster. I don’t care if they track my usage really, not like I am going to illegal sites or anything. Plus you can always go incognito if you are so worried.
To me FF has gone from good, but flawed, to just terrible. It doesnt render sites correctly, I have to use script stoppers because it will stop in it’s tracks, Adobe simply crashes alot in it..etc..It was good as an alternative when it came out, but its quickly turning into a has been.
In all my years of browsing, even with multiple tabs open, I have never had a browser's process come close to the 32-bit application limit of 2 GB. Of all the things that can benefit from a 64-bit address space, browsers aren't one of them.
