Browsers?

Hey people. I was just wondering what sorta browser you people use to access the forum? I have Firefox on my laptop and somehow this site is always super slow. And no it's not my internet because everything else loads up just fine. On my phone I have Safari, and it technically works fine. But the floating ads and clickbaits are super annoying. I wonder if this site is more compatible with one browser compared to the other? Thanks!

I use Firefox as well. For me, this site is unusable without some sort of ad blocker. The load times and the resulting pop ups are ridiculous without one. As much as I'd like to support a website, when the ads gets to the point where I can't *use* it...

Ooh yes I have Adblock Plus on my laptop! Can I install that on a mobile device?

Ads and pop up blocker is useful with any browser. Otherwise internet could be very frustrating.

Firefox needs more memory compared to chrome (not sure about other browsers). Perhaps this slows it down, especially when you have limited memory (RAM) but use many applications or tabs at one given time.

BTW, I use Firefox as well, simply because I'm used to it. Others in the family prefer chrome.

used Firefox for years ,(with adblock and noscript), just updated to the new 64bit version and it's a nice improvement for speed and memory.

I have 16 GiB of ram use Firefox with add block plus popup blocker no script, my internet speed is 19 mbs down and quite often the site loads slow, and when I say slow I mean it takes up to 15 seconds to load the page.

Oh yes I also use Linux.

I use Chrome, and was able to disable all those adds by clicking on them.
