I love Chrome, but like all tech, it has bugs. It seems to have memory leaks like FF. If I am on it all day, on a brand new I5 puter, it start to hang.

The worst part is some websites don't work. For example, it hanged, I cleared cach, hist, etc, and it will not work with Oracle's website yet FF does. I have seen about 10 websites over the last 2 months that chrome won't but FF will what gives?

I use chrome exclusively and I haven't come across a site it isn't compatible with. Not to say there aren't any, but I haven't seen them. Oracle's site works fine.

Chrome uses a new process per tab and per plugin, so if you're experiencing mem leaks take a look into what plugins you're using. I use a couple but don't have leak issues.

I think you called it. Adblock plus full enabled on chrome not ff.

Once in a while Chrome doesn't open sites. For example, I visited Crucial's website for memory upgrade and after running the memory scanner, I didn't get the results page. Could be my settings or a coincidence but I had to run it through IE.

Still, I prefer Chrome and FF simply because Adblock Plus easily integrates with them.

On my computer Chrome will not work unless I disable Adblock Plus. So I don't use Chrome for that reason I use Firefox. Is there a fix for this Chrome problem?

FireFox is the best browser so far, try firefox and share your opinion so others will also know about the firefox.
