Re: Google Chrome and jaws 14 beta

You're probably right, though in my case if it's a JAWS issue, it's a
recently grown one. IE 7 over here, latest JAWS 13. Firefox... Eh...
Probably up there in versions, but I'm not keen on fighting with it just to
get it to tell me.

I've used both Firefox and IE with the same application during a given day.
Firefox would lock up, or cause JAWS to crash after 20 minutes or so of
interaction. IE would usually run fine for three times as long.

I use Firefox because it does a better job working with all the forms and
elements than does IE. Reliability vs. Functionality.

I think it's JAWS, however that is just not happy with Firefox.

Firefox 15.0.1
IE 8.0.760
JFW 13.0.924

I don't believe Chrome is built on the Mozilla platform, but I also don't
pay much attention to Chrome as the few times I've fought with it, I ended
up just removing it and using something else. I've noticed, though, that
I've been needing to refresh the screen more frequently when pages update
while using either Firefox or IE on a 32-bit XP system running JAWS 13, so
I'm not entirely sure what the issue is.

Has anyone out there tried using Google Chrome with the Jaws 14 beta?
I've noticed that when going from one web page to another, I seem to need to
refresh the Screen to read the current page.
I also believe this might be happening with Firefox since it is my
understanding that both Chrome and Firefox are built on the Mozilla
I'm using the 64 bit edition of the beta on a vista machine.
