Back in the days when I ran Windows at home - seems ages ago now - I had a distinct preference for the Opera browser..

Since I've been using Ubuntu at home it's been nothing but Firefox...

I find the latest stable Firefox pretty good to be honest Will.

Any other advantages with the nightly?

What OS are you running it under?

I'm running win 7 64bit ultimate across my machines other than my lexia laptop but the. I barely use the net on it as it's too slow for anything but lexia :)

I find the biggest thing is that it is updated every night so any security stuff is popper straight into it :) it seems pretty snappy to me and hasn't given me any major issues over the last few years :)

Not necessarily Malcolm as cookies are handled slightly differently here on the FCF...

I'm building the new forum PPE/DEV Server here at the moment and will run some tests on it.

Can't do much else due to yet another does of non-specific lurgy and a right hand totally out of action due ongoing problems with wound that C2 inflicted on me the other week :evil:

For other reasons too the weekend so far has been a bit rotten. Hopefully today will be better [-o<

At least all the cars are OK :)

Better than Win 8 that's for sure :twisted:

That's fine Malcolm. Nothing fundamentally wrong with XP and FF. What version of FF are you using? Have you updated it recently?

Try not deleting your cookies and go for an automatic login each visit and see what that does...

You are blessed Mike :-D

Not only have you never had a problem removing a Xantia sphere but you've also never had an issue with Win 8. You must be the only one :rofl2:

How much did Bill pay you to say that :wink: :lol:

I must admit that as Bill's mob has rolled out the 8.1 and other (numerous) patches it is getting better.

Tell me, are you using the native Internet Exploder on it? That remains one of my biggest gripes and FF on Win 8 is a must for me.

It's fully patched to 8.1 and I use Chrome Jim. Never had a single problem.

I've no experience with Chrome at all but I hear good reports about it Mike...

I'm sticking with Unbuntu at home. Does me a treat.

I use Win 7 at work and also 2K8R2 (as well as a couple of favours of 'nix). I've not looked at Server 2012 yet but from what I hear your 'Grrr!!!' seems to sum up quite succinctly the general feeling Will..

I will reserve judgement until I bump headlong into it professionally...
