Silly question, though struggling with flash content not loading, scroll bars not being present - so am wondering, - which web browser offers the most functionality on a dated Windows XP platform?  :thinking:

I'm using XP.
Both Firefox and Chrome work, although it's slow - both slow.

You can also try UC Browser.
Firefox works fine and if your PC is fast, it should have no problem.

You should seriously consider dumping XP due to lack of security updates and support.

I agree.... connect an XP box online and its literally just a matter of time before its full of nasties... so many security flaws not patch at this point.

I use Chrome.

XP is great and lightweight for non-connected applications as it is stable and runs on old tin - I use it to power and arcade machine I built using MAME.

We used to use only Opera on XP.

Downloaded Chrome yesterday, it runs circles around Firefox ESR 52.8.0 & sorted the uploading bike pics out in a flash. >>  :2thumbs:
