Any suggestions for a faster and better web browser than Chrome? No firefox or IE

No Firefox or IE? I'm out. You're trying to figure out what's better than third place and you've eliminated first and second.

I have both of them right now and they're actually slower than Chrome....albeit they're a little less annoying.

What kind of computer? IE works faster for me.

Well, there's always Opera...

This is interesting, though, is IE making a comeback? Because, I clearly remember it sucking asss.

What's annoying about Chrome? Especially without any add-ins, it appears to be the lightest and fastest.

The new IE9 actually scored better in many tests than Chrome.

Wonder what you did to Chrome to make it annoying.
There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. " Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, which presents the difficulties.

IE can't even handle 10 tabs.

Whenever I try to watch a video it crashes and gives me the blue "aw snap" page.

I don't see a significant speed difference between Safari and Chrome. The new safari seems fast enough. Chrome is more customizable, though.

Safari has the best security.
It checks your downloads and sites you visit, asks before allowing sites to access your info, asks if you want to open programs downloaded form the internet, essentially doesn't get viruses on macs, new version blocks websites like google from tracking your online activities, etc.

Chrome does all that already...

Opera is better than Chrome. Better features, more expandability, more customization it's open source, I could go on. Although, it isn't faster.
When large numbers of otherwise-law abiding people break specific laws en masse, it's usually a fault that lies with the law. - Unknown
