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 browser.
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.
