Can you have more than one internet browser on your lap top? Which browser works best with Hubpages?
I have internet explorer but I'm unable to leave comments and photos don't display well on my laptop. I'm wondering if I can use a web browser that works well for hubpages, but I still need to retain my internet explorer. Can I download another browser and not have it replace or over-ride my original?
I think Google Chrome is by far the better browser. Free download Yes, You can have several browsers. Doesn't hurt one bit.
Yes, you can have many browsers on your computer, and each has advantages and disadvantages. I prefer Mozilla Firefox, (also a free download) but will occasionally use Internet Explorer for one or two applications that work better there.
When my wife was teaching on-line classes I think she had 3 or 4 on her computer so she could see what her students were seeing.
When you install the new browser it will ask if you want it to be your default browser. See which one you like best before clicking yes. The help files should explain how to set the default browser.
yes, first thing you may want to do is upgrade your internet explorer, and the next thing is to download a copy of firefox, which works wonderfully, has a smaller footprint on your hard drive, and is customizable.

I have always used Internet Explorer and have just dealt with all of its little 'quirks' but I can't take it anymore! I can't even open capsules now or delete any to work on a hub. So how do I change to something different? And what should I change it to? Fairly computer illiterate here so simple...

For anyone who upgraded to Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11 came with it and you may have noticed that you can enter links in your hubs through this browser.It still works in Firefox 25, but just a heads up!

Is Google Chrome, or Firefox, better than Internet Explorer?I'm wondering if I'm going to run into problems with these. Has anyone compared these search engines? Which is the best one to use with Windows 7 ?

Anyone else having problems with IE 8? When I try to navigate to http://hubpages.com/ I get:Internet Explorer cannot display the webpageand a list of possible problems, all generic. Same thing when I try to browse to http://hubpages.com/my/hubsHubPages through FireFox works fine on this machine.

Just noticed that the facebook like button is not showing in Firefox, although it shows up fine in Chrome when I looked.
