    On my computer,

    Internet explorer crashes with Flash installed (and have read that IE has security issues)
    Safari has slightly fuzzy text which is hard on the eyes
    Firefox aligns to the right of screen.

    Please advise which is best browser to use & if any of the above can be rectified

      Have you tried Chrome? What's your computer like, anyway?

      Well, I think Google Chrome is better, at least it will not crash by any flash problems, it has the better support of html5, so plugin is not needed while dispaying flash.

    Mine has Vista, and I use IE and Firefox. They're what I've always used, and I haven't had any problems.  I wonder if there's the chance your problem with browsers has nothing to do with Vista at all? I know Vista (especially when someone upgraded to it) has "a reputation", but I've really had no problems whatsoever with it.  Anyway, I was just wondering if, maybe, the reputation is what has you thinking Vista's the issue (when maybe it isn't).  hmm  (My two grown kids have also had Vista (theirs are laptops), and they haven't problems with it either.)

      do you have flash downloaded (to view videos)?  We figured out that was what was making the IE on our computer crash all the time

    Chrome and Firefox work will with Vista.  I used Firefox on Vista with little problems until I upgraded to 7.  I now use a combination of Chrome, Firefox and IE depending on what I'm doing.  If you customize Chrome or Firefox, they can go above and beyond what IE offers.

    Opera runs fine on Vista. Makes all other browsers seem like kindergarten, if you can figure it out.
