    Hello,

    I have tried the mainstream browsers and these others which are fast:

    Maxthon
    Palemoon
    SlimBrowser


    Believe me, these ones are faster than the more popular ones. However, I have noticed that after using the browser for more than an hour, with tabs up to 6 or 7 open, they do occasionally hang/freeze.

    Can you pls tell me a browser that does not hang/freeze even after hours of use with many tabs open?

    (Pls do not recommend me to use Process Lasso, which is very good. I am after only the browser.)

    Thanks.

    Browser freezing can have many causes:
    heavy processor load.
    swap file usage.
    graphics problems.
    overall system load.
    plugin issues, often flash player.
    AVs.

    Some more info about your system would help, OS version, processor, RAM, what else is running. Have you used Process Explorer to see what the processor load is at the time, and for what process?

    In my case on XP "often" is not the right word, but more like always flash player problems. :)

    Really? Is it ok to download the portable version? Will the performance be the same as that of the common installation?

    IE11 recognizes my FlashPlayer, including Maxthon and everything using the Trident (IE) engine. But Chrome and Firefox does not. They tell me to install/update Flash Player.

    Thanks.

    OK.

    SO I have ran FRST and included the results on these files:

    http://share.cx.com/Q6bnyY
    http://share.cx.com/vtgqYd

    These files tell in great detail my system's specifications.

    I am using Maxthon portable as browser, on a Windows 8.1 Pro netbook, Intel Atom N455 with 2GB DDR3 RAM. Low specs.
