I need some help finding a light browser for Windows 7. I've been using IE but it takes up too much of the CPU and RAM. is there a lighter one I can use? (Google doesn't help, Reboot. I need reccommendations.)

Have you tried Firefox? Isn't there a Safari version for Windows? Opera?

I prefer Firefox here on my Macs. It will eat RAM and CPU if you're hitting a lot of Flash or JAVA based sites at once, though.

Did you see my last link there? That one seems to be the best one as it shows all the browsers with download links.

I never read your crap John. wink

I'm guilty of reading the first post and replying before reading the whole thread. I did see it, but it shows IE as first so I figured it might be biased since it's a developers site.

I still can't decide which one I should use, but I'm using Safari now, and it's better...
