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.

Webvisum doesn't work on Chrome... How do you solve captchas on

have it, but when you click on it nothing happens?

Rumola... It never worked here, so I would avoid it.
