I saw too much browser freezing when I had the 8 extensions installed. These 3 have been stable for me. What absolutely made Chrome unusable was when I installed the Google Drive extensions for Excel/documents. If your browser is freezing, disable your extensions and try it again. What is amazing is that Chrome works as well as it does. Every now and then I try other browsers like Safari and it just doesn’t have the stability and speed that Chrome does. I stopped using Firefox once Chrome was out. Safari would be nice if it were more stable. It just doesn’t integrate well with third-party extensions.
As you may have noticed I like to look at StumbleUpon and they have a browser plugin to help you share to other internet services. So in Chrome it works easily, but in Safari the function is hidden and often is slow to respond. I tried using it for a couple weeks but I was less productive. At the end of the day we have to be able to do our jobs right?
