Re: The best internet browser to use with JAWS.

I’m guessing you could take it and all your bookmarks to any computer.  But Chrome does that anyway, even if it isn’t portable.


I could sign in on any computer and have all my settings there.


All the best

Just curious, but what advantage is there in running this portable version over one you install?

Hi Liz!

The best browser to use with JAWS, for me, has been a browser called:


It was developed in 2012, and it is a spin off of Firefox, but it works tons better.

It can use all of the classic Firefox plugins, and it is so very fast.

JAWS never messes up in Waterfox. It is kept up to date, and it is very secure. A new update just came out.

Water fox has an interface that is almost like the old Firefox.

It has a spell check built in and everything.

It has a reading mode where you can get the clutter off the page, and read the article.

The reading mode is built in.

You just press:

Alt+CTRL+R to put a web site into reading mode.

With JAWS, I would say that Waterfox is my favorite browser.

You can just do a Google search for Waterfox.

What I like as well, is the ability to download a portable version of Waterfox.

I love running a portable version, that I keep on the computer, because you do not have to install it on the computer. Also, if you keep the portable version on the computer, you can create a short cut on the desktop just like you can with installed programs.

I hope this helps.

Take care, Liz.

I am going to be receiving some in depth computer training in preparation for vocational training services. Since Internet Explorer is no longer secure, what is the best browser out there that is JAWS friendly? I have used fire fox in the past, but as of late I have heard mixed views about fire fox.
