I must clear something up. I do not advocate dumping
one browser for another. Actually, I use IE 11, Firefox,
and Google Chrome. Each browser is best for certain web
sites and also what you use the browser for. For example,
I like using the mobile Facebook site on IE 11 better than
the other two browsers. However, when I play YouTube
videos, I like Chrome much better, because the video never
pauses or stops altogether. I use Firefox for my banking
site. It is good to have two or three browsers, because a
web site may act totally different in one browser than in
another. On both of my computers running win10, Chrome
loads most web pages at least 20 seconds faster than in
Firefox and 30 seconds faster than IE 11. It could be my
laptops and set up as well. My advise is to have as many
tools at your disposal as possible so you can do as many
jobs as you can. Take care, and have a great one.
Yes, if you want to spend
an unreasonable amount to solve captchas. Rumola is
much much cheaper and Webvisum can still be used with
earlier versions of NVDA. If you put a portable
version of Firefox on your machine that is version 43
or lower, you can still use Webvisum on sites that
require captchas to be solved and you can use the
current version of Firefox on all other sites. It may
be that for someone who solves many captchas, this
might not be as good a solution but for many, it may
be a reasonable one.
I keep seeing, David,
your claim that Chrome is faster. How many machines
have you compared Fire fox with Chrome? I doubt that
there is any meaningful difference. I like the
Firefox interface more and Firefox has many more
popular add ons. I am very skeptical that dumping
firefox is necessarily a good idea and without
meaningful comparisons, I shall remain skeptical that
there is a meaningful difference in speed.
I have Chrome on my
computers because there are sites, now and then, where
I get better access with it. I use Firefox as my main
And as far as streaming
is concerned, the browser doesn't stream. Whatever
player is used streams. I am, again, very skeptical
that Chrome is any better at streaming.
