    I use Panda Crazy and Mturk Suite, have done a couple of years.

    But I found browsers constantly let me down. Firefox is a memory leaking mess. Chrome work sometimes, but I had terrible problems with it running TamperMonkey and crashing.

    Been using Vivaldi quite successfully for a year, but just upgraded to 3.0 (Windows) and it's completely killed Panda Crazy

    What's a stable browser set up for you guys?

    cheers

    I think both Netscape Navigator and AOL Explorer are solid choices. While you'll probably not be able to load any modern website, they do have great RAM management.


    P.S. But seriously though, Chrome is king, Firefox is also fine.

    I'm just kidding about the IQ thing. But popularity =/= quality. I prefer Firefox in general (despite what many say, in my hands, FF has always been way faster than Chrome). I also very much prefer my privacy.

    I'll have you know that I tested my IQ and I'm well below 100, so I'm not sure why you underlined that 90-109 range. Stop insulting my inleligence please.
