Hello. I am new to iMac 21.5. I am not happy with the Safari browser, so I added Firefox, which I previously used on my PC. I was having difficulty with Optimum Online's web site. I went to Apple's Live Chat. The agent told me he uses Google Chrome for Mac and is very pleased with it. Is Google Chrome for Mac safe? Reliable? Smooth running? Easy to use? I will await answers before making a decision to install or not. By the way, my product is iMac 21.5 OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4), but the community listings below do not go up that high, so I will use the closest one.) Thank you.
Thank you, ds store, for being very helpful. I feel really good about Firefox, and I'm sticking with it. I was having problems with the Optimum Online website - very slow to load up, sometimes freezing, making me use the Stop/Refresh keys - especially when viewing e-mail or trying to see information about TV listings. I answered their survey and told them the problem happens often, and it was suggested to me to use the Chrome browser for Mac. I didn't even like the browser that came with the iMac (Safari?), so I downloaded Firefox for Mac, which works well, but I can't seem to personalize it with the themes I like. I'm glad I didn't jump at the Live Chat agent's suggestion about Chrome. Thank you again for helping me make a very good decision.
