This may sound really silly and a bit noob-ish but I'm forever finding an issue with at least one browser! I really like Internet Explorer 11 but for some reason it won't work with EduGeek and various other websites at all (it may have something to do with me using the 64bit version) though I prefer 64bit IE as it's a lot snappier at loading web pages, 32bit. Meh not so much. I also use Chrome but that gets tedious and will have some weird issues sometimes when refreshing a page, plus I actually think IE 64bit is faster than Chrome.
All I want is a lightweight browser that is quick and works properly with no fuss. It obviously has to be free and has to incorporate flash, java and silver light. I do very much like to use Safari on the Mac but I want something as good as on Windows... I should also point out I don't like Firefox and I don't like Oprah!
Do me proud

I use Avant a lot, as it's tri core (IE, FF and Chrome), it can be anything you tell it to be at the click of a button and does lots of other things besides and is regularly updated.
Midori · A lightweight, fast, and free web browser
Can't get much more lightweight than that unless you go for an all text browser like Lynx: Lynx Information
Not sure about Silverlight on Midori, Flash and Java should be fine though. Lynx is text only so it goes without saying there are no content plugins for that...
@LosOjos, after looking into Midori I found this http://elementaryos.org/ I'm amazed they got away with this it's extremely close to the look and feel of a Macintosh!

I must admit, Chrome isn't the fastest mainstream browser any more IMO, I think Firefox wins that one, but overall I find Chrome the most pleasant to use.
Anything is better than IE.
All my schools use chrome and its very fast and has zero issues for us.
EDIT: watched more of the video and there are more than a few similarities to OSX to be fair; Apple mustn't have managed to patent window layouts yet!

Personally I'm using Maxthon as a good alternative to IE and Google Chrome both the latter have been a pain in one way or the other. In particular Chrome has been right odd of late; completely refusing to open some sites. Across the school though IE is the default and of late IE11 has been rolling out on updates - that said there have been a few incidents of the proxy not getting picked up by it.
Completely remove chrome and re install it freshly ?
Whats wrong with firefox ?
