You could always use Safari
Just tried waterfox and its seems much faster than firefox

the only problem is that it doesn't work for http://www.quakelive.com

That website loads fine for me. Just make sure you have the 64-bit version of Flash (11 RC) and 64-bit Java installed.

Seems like firefox does have smooth scrolling that can be enabled and that you can infact remove the search bar

I just have to live with it being a bit slower than the other browsers

Firefox feels slow and you depend on people to update extensions which they rarely do. Theres 2 search bars which is annoying and you scroll through pages too fast. The extensions for smoothscrolling are crap and make the brower 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 every site like quakelive

Opera is probally 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 thats integrated in opera and that can most sites, especially quakelive
If you think all of that is bad, then why don't you find a download of Netscape Navigator V1.0 and then lets see if you still think they all suck.

Appreciate what you have been given.

For smoother scrolling, go to Control Panel->Mouse->Wheel Tab and decrease the number of lines to scroll when you scroll your mouse wheel.

As a firefox user I do have some tips for you on the Firefox side of things. Ensure you are using newer versions of Firefox, which are much faster and more memory optimized than before; you may want to consider a beta or alpha version of Firefox, as well as the 3rd-party Waterfox (see the thread in my sig: 64-bit firefox). If you are using an extension that "smoothens" the scrolling, be sure to set a framerate limiter to 60FPS or you will see increased CPU or GPU usage. There are addons to disable the search bar so you can search only from the primary awesomebar; I usually prefer that a search-bar be separate, to allow for variable splitting of functions. Might also want to ensure that the LATEST flash version is installed.
