Why do all browsers suck?

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Flash support is buggy for internet explorer 9, and there are many sites that simply won't work because I'm forced to use the buggy 64-bit version.

Firefox feels slow and you depend on people to update extensions which they rarely do. There are 2 search bars which is annoying and you scroll through pages too fast. The extensions for smooth-scrolling are crap and make the browser run slow.

Google chrome is very simple and fast which is great, but again the smooth scrolling options are crap and it doesn't work for all sites, like quake live.

Opera is probably my fave. Its fast and simple, yet have many useful features. It just crashes too often, doesn't work every site and playing flash videos is buggy.

All I want is something fast, simple, stable, smooth scrolling like the one that's integrated in opera and that can most sites, especially quake live.

i LOVE my firefox.

i use only two addons, downloadstatusbar and adblock, both are pretty famous and updated right after every version, no problems at all.

give another shot to firefox

People expect way too much from browsers these days and that's the reason they become sluggish and slow. Chrome is simple, but it's just not my cup of tea. I prefer Waterfox, simple for the 64 bit qualities.

You could always use Safari

But seriously, I've accepted the fact that nothing is perfect. Just settle for the next best thing.
Chrome works for me, if I run into a problem I use something else to accomplish my work and go back to my Chrome.

I might do that as it seems to be the only browser that function well on all sites.

But can you tell me how remove 1 of the searchbars and a good addon for smooth scrolling?

Did cross my mind ,only way firefox is ever slow for me is if i move cache to a 7200rpm drive,otherwise its a quick as anyone could ever want,i spend hours every day using it and never have an issue,the only thing i changed was to disable hardware acceleration as it was buggy with flash vids.

@op,post your spec and lets see what your running your browsers on first
