    I use a outdated chrome based browser called SRWare Iron. And its version 4.0.280.
    I use this version because it works with all chrome plugins unlike the older versions. And it does not work with Google Instant which I do not like Google Instant. And it does not auto-fill in the address bar annoyingly like the newer versions do. This way I have a browser that does not annoy me, And is up to date enough to work with all websites. And it does not send back to Google at all like the newer versions of Iron do. So if you do not like Google instant and you do not want Google looking at your account numbers, You should try this browser too you can still get version 4 of Iron from filepig. Sometimes new does not mean good.

    • Google: file hippo.
      In file hippo’s search box type in: google chrome,
      then look at the right and you’ll see the latest version on top and all the older versions below it.
      If you go one step further at the bottom of that old version list,
      click on: view more
      This will bring you to a screen with all those old versions and when those version were first released.
      I recommend downloading FILE HIPPO – it will assist you in keeping your programs updated by sending you a notice when there is a newer version is out and can be downloaded. You’ll love it.
