I have satellite Internet, which isn’t the fastest broadband on the planet, anyway, but I’ve had all sorts of problems with Internet Explorer. If I open several tabs in Internet Explorer, eventually, I start getting tabs on which the pages don’t load. I also get some very quirky behavior when I try to author blog posts in WordPress; for example, I can’t use the mouse to move the insertion point, I have to use the arrow keys.
I tried Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Google Chrome, and based on my experience, Chrome is the winner, by a long shot. So if you’re having speed issues or are experiencing problems with Internet Explorer, give Chrome a try: Download Google Chrome.
