Artificial benchmarks mean nothing in the real world... How a app performs on your system is what matters. My connection is 100MBs and IE is not slow in general. there are of course times when the site or internet is slow for a certain website but in general I don't see much difference in my web experience. IE will crash more than Chrome but that is a coding issue IE has with modern sites. MS is still adding support to IE so it is still viable when Chromium Edge  doesn't do what I need.

Bottom line is we need IE, Chromium and other web browsers to get the most out of the internet. smiley face

I don't think how fast IE is has anything to do with how fast your system is. It may have a bit to do with whether you have a 6 Mbps down/1 Mbps up ADSL connection or a 250 MBPS down/50 MBPS up fiber connection, but believe me, I also have some relatively fast systems and I have older slower ones and IE is equally slow on all of them. When they talk about fast web browsers and do tests where they set whatever benchmarks are being used I am sure there is a reason why Chrome is always performing much higher than IE or why, for that matter, pretty much most modern chromium based browsers do.

I dont notice it being slow. But I run very fast systems.

What frustrates me each time I try to use IE for whatever reason (extremely rare now) is how slow it is.

Amen to that. I still use IE. I have Chrome as my default, but, when that frustrates me, I got back to ol' IE.

Don't give up on IE yet. It will occasionally work when others wont do what you need them too. The truth is you need multiple browsers because each will work in a situation where the others wont. the new Chromium based Edge is pretty good. I use it as my default browser and use IE and Firefox on occasion. There will never be a single work on every webpage browser for us.

Vivaldi is not nearly as easy to use as advertised and I haven't tried water fox or Brave but I will be after reading this.

Hi all:

Please post your recommendations of what you think is the best web browser to use with the latest version of JAWS. I seem to go back and forth on this and would like to settle down and really learn using what folks think is best.
