    I'm still using SR Iron as my main browser though it's been over a year since they stopped supporting XP with updates. Also have Firefox, but, as your link stated, after September, no more updates for XP either. Just check Lunascape (never heard of that one). Might be my future browser so long as they continue to support XP, but I did say might. So long as I still have no issues with SR Iron, I'll keep using SR Iron, but I do know that that won't be an option forever.

    Surprised at what I am reading here. I went from IE to MFF which is just as bad as IE. It crashes all the time. I was thinking of going from MFF to Google Chrome.

    Chrome no longer supports XP so you may want to consider one of those from that linked article.

    On an old Windows XP computer that serves as a backup I installed Opera, the second browser on the list, and it's working well. I first downloaded the installation file using a newer computer and that didn't work. You have to use the computer you will install the browser on to download the file because they need to detect your operating system and send you the correct installation file. I limped over to opera.com with Internet Explorer 8 to download the correct file.

    I tried Slimjet, near the bottom of the list, last year on a newer computer and thought it was a good browser. So, if you like Chromium based browsers, that's one to consider. I left Slimjet to return to Google Chrome, but for just minor reasons.

    I seldom browse the web from my Windows XP machines anymore, but when I do browse from any of them I'm running Opera version 12.18 (for years now).
    (They also have AdBlock Plus installed.)

    Out of my 20 PC's, I still have a few that run ONLY XP. For a browser I prefer Firefox, just like with all my other OS's.

    The only thing about Firefox, is that you have to stay with a version below 43.0 and disable auto upgrades.
    Then, it works just fine.
