Decent Bowser

Have been using Firefox for a long time but finding it takes up more and more resources to load.

Anybody got ideas of a decent alternate................Anything from Microgle isn't on list.

Chrome is by far the best if you ask me.

Try Pale Moon it's faster than FF, or SRWare Iron which is Chrome with all of Google's nasty privacy invasions removed.

Seconded for SRWare Iron provided you don't want frills.

The Range, I did not say that. What I said was "with all of Google's nasty privacy invasions removed." they are:

RLZ identifier, an encoded string sent together with all queries to Google or once every 24 hours.
Google search access on startup for users with Google as default search
A unique ID ("clientID") for identifying the user in logs.
A timestamp of when the browser was installed.
Google-hosted error pages when a server is not present
Google Updater automatic installation.
DNS pre-fetching, because it could potentially be used by spammers.
Automatic address bar search suggestions.
Bug tracking system, sends information about crashes or errors.

Plus tracking information.


how do you know that SRWare Iron is free from privacy invasions?
Since SRWare Iron is an open source project you download the source code and check it.
