I also use Chrome, but be careful Doug, when you enter your passwords - http://www.theverge.com/2013/8/7/4597018/google-chrome-saved-browser-passwords

While I'm not particularly a 'Chrome' fan, it must be a significant improvement over 'Internet Explorer'  !  Crazy
I'm happy with 'Firefox' with Adblock Plus  Cool
@kdoug007 - I would recommend installing Adblock Plus for Chrome  Wink

I've used Chrome for years, it's never been a problem.
Just change your privacy settings, and your fine.

Re: changed my browser to chrome..

Talking of updates my seamonkey just forcefully auto updated itself wiping out my settings for flashplayer not to be automatically loaded.
Why must they do this? It's bad enough that flash keeps causing the browser to lock up but to have my setting changed by a forced update is simply nasty.
To make it worse, they've also removed that particular setting that allowed me to disable flash  Angry
Mozilla are turning into PI Steakers.
