Default Best Browser Versions

Hi,

Seems that I freeze alot in Galaxy gates now and I want to start doing the gate again without the possibility of dying... So I contacted support and asked. They told me that my browser may not be best for me. After careful examinations and advise from players from this thread. I have edited this to be a guide.

Just would like to let people know here that yes, the type of browser you use does matter.

Some people overlook the reasons why. Some people believe that one browser that works best for them will work for everyone else equally.

Every computer handles a browser differently.

Just would like to list a few browsers that may be best for your computer and Darkorbit.

The Current browser I use is "SRWare Iron".

Its a great browser I love to use for all Bigpoint games I play.

I used to play On Chrome and firefox but I tend to freeze up alot and crash.

Other people don't though and that is ok. Some people enjoy Opera or IE.

If you are one of those people who freeze or lag alot ingame and need a a solution. Check out one of these browsers.
  • SRWare Iron
  • Flock
  • WaterFox (64 Bit only)

Here are some popular browsers you may like as well if your system is right for it:
  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Opera
  • Safari
  • Internet Explorer

If you are looking for a browser. These recommendations may help.

Vintage

Don't use Google chrome as it is almost as bugged as Dark Orbit

Using Iron Browser (Chromium based) no privacy concerns and no Google rubbish ,Uses bit more RAM then Chrome but well Worth it

Gave up on Firefox long time ago

Using Waterfox instead ..better than FF

Also using best browser ever made

Flock version 2.5.6- not supported by developers but who cares


If it is made by Google it is Data mining product,if made by Apple it is for fanboys ,if made by Satansoft it is rubbish

Ill try waterfox. I use Opera, FF, and Chrome and each has it own type of freezing XD

EDIT: It is not letting me install waterfox for some reason.

"This installation package is not supported by this processor type. Contact your vendor"

I am guessing waterfox is 64bit only

agree about flock , a great little browser . normally use that or Opera. new version seems ok .

but like pecanin said flock is no longer supported/updated . so they cannot mess it up .

Ill try flock some other time. Iron works perfect. I do get occasional normal DO caused freezes once in a while but compared to what I used to get every 2 seconds, its liveable.

Ohh a very interesting list of browsers, thank you for this information, I will also try a few of these out.

On another note, how is it possible to use older versions of browsers if you have a newer version? Because whenever there is an update it usually informs me or updates it without my permission after a while.

In settings of each browser you can disable auto update
