"Internet Explorer has stopped working"

When I click on an item to read on "Stuff", the article shows but almost immediately the above message comes up, also says Windows will close the programme & notify if a solution is found. Sometimes it just does it once and the article can be read-other times just goes in a loop and nothing can be opened, any advice from someone who knows? I am a total technophobe! Thanks

First question: Are you on Windows XP, or a newer Windows?

Or Firefox for its superiority, and if you don't like the evil Google.

FF with multiple tabs open takes less memory than Chrome.

You can have Google as a home page on any browser

It is still miles better than IE and safer

Internet explorer has stopped being developed for XP or Vista.

Nah not these days. Take a modern Ultrabook for example. Watching a Youtube video in Chrome gives you half the battery life as the same video in IE. Firefox is only about 75% as good as IE for battery.

Both Chrome and Firefox have become really slow and bloated, and use way too much CPU.

Interesting, for those who use batteries.
Anyone tried Vivaldi (is it out yet?)

"Internet Explorer has stopped working"

Can't help but think that's a plus. Plenty of other browsers available that will do the job better.

geek_namtak, Mar 13, 6:25 pm

yep certainly good news. Dump the bloody thing and get Firefox

For someone who is supposed to be a computer expert you dont know much about browsers do you.you can get Google on whatever browser you are using.

just maybe he was referring to the company?

geek_king1, Mar 16, 9:05 pm

Of course.
