So I did a re-install of Windows on my laptop as it had just been a bastard for the last couple of months, laggy, corrupted, couldn't back up or update.

So now I've got a bit of a blank canvas. It's running Windows 7 Home Premium, which naturally has IE install. So I'm wondering what is going to be the best way to go with browser and Office-type programs. Previously I was using Chrome and Office so could easily go back to that but thought I'd see if anyone had any other opinions. Are any of the Open Source processors (ie. LibreOffice) a good replacement or should I just stick with Office.

Stick with office, then you're compatible with almost everyone.

Yeah the more I think about it, that seems to be the defining thing.

So Chrome vs Firefox then....

I like Chrome but use IE because running a web site I need to see what most other people are seeing, if it wasn't for that it would be Chrome, I think it's faster.

I stand corrected, I haven't looked for a while, definitely Chrome.

I find Chrome to be much much faster than IE. Made the switch about 18 months ago and never looked back

I don't have much experience with Firefox but Chrome is pretty user-friendly so I'd choose that
