Is this still the preferred browser of choice by many? Starting to find it rather buggy and unstable of late. Anyone else having issues with it?

Cheers.

Yeah it can be a bit buggy at times. But most of the time it's the better browser. Try a reinstall, usually works for me.

Getting a lot of killed pages recently, doesn't seem to be as stable as it used to be.

0 |

how many tabs have you open at a time? might need to close some and free some resources.

i use chrome on a couple of different OS' & mac/pc and its probably still the quickest and most stable.

0 |

Still better than explorer or firefucks.

0 |

yeah, I've usually got a ridiculous amount of tabs open.

Reinstall should fix that killed pages thing, chrome has been super stable for me and completely syncs with my phone too...awesomeness

the iphone mobile version is the business too

They sorted out chrome for android then? Was rubbish last time I tried it

Using Mac version. It's dead buggy.

Open up new tab. Start to type. Multi-coloured spinny wheel for 2 mins.

here your the drum and bass head, someone put up a track on here the other day and it was amazing. do you have anymore stuff like it? here it is

aye limewax is cool... very very hard stuff, mostly. similar artists would be people like current value, counterstrike... maybe even people like Hive and Gridlok and the west coast USA Violence Recordings

spor would be my favourite in that sort of heavy style tbh.

Anyone else been having absolutely horrendous performance issues with it recently? I've had to go back to Firefox as it had pretty much become unusable!

0 |

works fine (and faster than FF) over here

0 |

still good for me. firefox still a nightmare with performance. I would try limiting tabs and uninstall as many extensions as you can.

0 |

It's definitely an issue as there are loads complaining about it on the Google discussion forums. I love Chrome, but it's just fucked at the minute.

0 |

any web designers notice how googles own web fonts, look like shit in google chrome.

The missus gave a tech guy in work her laptop to put movies and shit on. He put on loads of software and things she doesn't need. Her laptop is not even 6 months old and has been a nightmare since this stuff went on it.
Chrome wouldn't allow a wireless connection last night. Had to uninstall and use ff.

I'm gonna see about doing a factory reset if i can. Am i right in thinking this is the thing to do if i can get windows from somewhere?

0 |

Re-install windows?

0 |

uninstall the programs?

if they won't uninstall do a factory reset or reinstall windows from scratch.

0 |

if u are going to do a complete reinstall u really need to know what u are at...factory reset is usually a better option, depending on the pc manufacturer

i would always try to fix the system before reloading windows and wiping the pc

Can't stand Chrome now. I notice no performance difference between it and Firefox on my current laptop, and Firefox's address bar is light years ahead, so I'm using Firefox.

0 |

I un-installed the programs. The thing is still acting the dick. The laptop is lenovo. Factory reset it is then. Thanks.

0 |

did you just use program manager to uninstall the programs? This can leave loads of little bits of the programs behind, and still cause problems.

Try using Revo uninstaller, that hunts through the computer to find all the wee left over bits.

Chances are the applications may have fired on some malware. Before doing a factory restore, run a spyware program like the built in windows defender. Also run a virus scan and download a program called CCleaner and use it to clear up the registry. Then do a restart and see how it goes.

I replaced my macbook the other day as it was on its way out with a new windows 8 machine. Significantly more performance than the cheapest 1k macbook for half the price. I love macs but I just couldnt bring myself to drop that much money when i saw the spec on this one.

Got ccleaner and advanced system care on the go. I'll try revo installer. Ddn't know that Ceri.

download both rkill and mbam (anti-malware bytes) and run them in that order. Rkill will stop all alware that is currently running ang MBA is a great app for getting rid of them

I stopped using Chrome about 6 months ago, it's nearly as slow as IE now and is always crashing - that's on my laptop and work PC.

Back to FF and it works great!

0 |

For some reason I have to minimise, then maximise my window to get it working.

0 |

Strange, it seems fine today after I installed Firefox.

0 |

mine has never had an issue, maybe it my amazy laptop :D
it loads much quicker than FF when initially clicked on. FF maybe faster at certain elements of browsing but then again IE has advantages

0 |

I think chrome/chromium is much better with regards syncing. Does firefox still require you to enter pairing keys etc?

0 |

There was an update to Chrome last night which could be why it works now.

0 |

:)

ahh, hopefully they've fixed it this time.

Sorry, I meant on Windows 7. Not mobile.. it may have been the same, though it was fine on my Android phone.

In general i'm experiencing general dissatisfaction with Chrome and the internets. First Chrome starts acting like a spanner and then Facebook continues it's trend of acting like a cunt by deciding to make you wait fifteen seconds to open an image, but by that time you've already touched the screen so as it lags whilst opening your image it closes it almost instantly after opening.

Anyway...hope alls well ;;;';

Been using chrome more on android. Dolphin has been glitchy. Still waiting on jelly bean update fs.

0 |

Chrome seemed to have sorted itself out there, but seems to be slowing down again. Found this and gave it a try and it definitely seems to have helped...
