Switched to Google Chrome a few months ago due to problems with IE. Now having problems with Google Chrome (long wait time). Cleared cache and history, but still no good.

I've heard of a few others out there like "Firefox" Seeking recommendations.

Cheers!

Hello PO2 McNeilly, Please go through my guide for fixing IE, this will also fix Google Chrome. http://milcac.us/tweaks Firefox can also work, but you have to have ActivClient installed and configured for Firefox to work with your CAC. I have instructions located on http://militarycac.com/firefox.htm

I use Safari or Chrome up until the point where I have to use my CAC to log in to something. I can only ever get it to work with IE and a PC.

I wouldn't recommend Firefox... I'd uninstall and redownload Chrome first.

Agree, Chrome works the best for me.

Most military programs still utilize .aspx programming and IE works the best for that.

Lynx.

Seriously though, Firefox is my browser of choice. I have no issue with CAC login, and it has better features than any other browser I've used.

Chrome (well, Chromium on my machine) is good, but gives me trouble with flash and tends to crash frequently. It is much faster than any graphical browser I've used.

I only used IE for those few sites the Army designed that don't work properly on real browsers.
