The best browser for you ...

In reply to: 1 more thing

is the one you prefer to use. So for you it seems to be slim browser (never heard of it, personally).

A minimum requirement should be that it correctly shows the webpages you regularly visit (including pictures, movies, sound, stylesheets and executing the scripts it contains).

Other requirements could be speed, ad- and popup-stopping, use of tabs, customizability and availability of add-ons, user-friendlyness (shortcut keys, clear and useful icons), print capabilities, security (like the different zones in Internet Explorer), presence of parental control, way it cooperates with security programs, price (free or paid), etc. That's all up to you.

You might like to work through the currently 73 posts in (currently a few threads below this one).

Hope this helps,

The topic of which browser is best is actually an ongoing discussion, which you can have a look at by clicking here. Instead of having two discussions on the same topic I'll lock this one so that the other may continue.

You tried almost all of the major ones except for Seamonkey (a full suite from Mozilla) and AOL Explorer (AOL's new stand-alone browser). If you want to try out some of the lesser-known browsers, which for the most part aren't as good, click here. Since you like Slim Browser, why not stick with it? After all, the 'best' browser is the one that you like.

Just a thought.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
