    I don't know what Google has been doing with Chrome with the last couple of updates, but it's glitchier and slower than ever. If I open up task manager, the CPU usage seems also on the high side. It has come to the point to where it actually annoys me, and I tried switching to Microsoft Edge to see what it's like. Pleasantly surprised so far. Chrome feels bloated and heavy compared to it. Who woulda thought. MS has been getting their shit together lately. Still behind with extensions and stuff, but the browsing experience is good... dark theme looks slick, too.

    I use IE as a default and then, if there's something I can't do, I'll open up Chrome.

    I thought it was me. Cleaned a bunch of shit off and tried to keep number of windows at a minimum, still slow.

    Internet Explorer isn't nearly as shitty as people are still making it out to be. The last couple of versions have been decent.

    I still default to Google... but Bing isn't that bad anymore either. Especially their image search.

    Enormous battery hog, too, even if it's just running in the background. You really start to notice heavy/bloated programs when you're on a laptop.

    the copy/paste is usually part of the manufacturer software. Like a clipbook instead of clipboard. What kind of phone?

    I have noticed no problems with Chrome at all. Maybe lay off the free porn sites.
