Been using I.E for some time but finding it slow.
I was told to try Google Chrome as an alternative, does anyone know if this is a better option? or should I maybe look at Firefox or any other alternatives?

Firefox is the choice of most - including myself.

Is google chrome quite safe? Spyware/Malware etc?

Another vote for Google Chrome, it is more secure than Internet explorer and a lot faster. I tried Firefox a while back but it never ever worked properly.

Chrome, Firefox, Opera click here , K-Melion click here Slimbrowser click here , Flock click here , TheWorld click here & Safari click here are all safe, it's just a case of trying them until you decide on a favourite.

I keep coming back to Firefox.

I have been using Chrome for some months, due to it's speed.

But now I've tried Firfox 3.5 beta, I've switched back to Firefox. It's more flexible, and the new version is as speedy as Chrome - and seems entirely stable to date.

Sorry about the double post.

Chrome has a few rough edges too - when typing right here into the message box, the standard font is a little odd - and pasting links in is not quite right either.
