    cornemuse, how do you mean sluggish?? I have 3 addons installed and it may take 10 or 15 seconds for firefox to start, but that is also because I have yahoo as my homepage, if I leave it at the default it always starts up right away. :)

    5 seconds to load a page with 3 tabs already open, sometimes it is longer especially for microsoft webpages, takes almost one minute to load my onedrive page. :)

    Firefox is of course the first alternative to consider if you want to replace Chrome, but Mozilla announced Firefox 52 will be the last version supporting XP and Vista. Security updates will be released until September 2017.
    Opera, which is Chromium-based, announced that the last version for XP will be Opera 36, but support will continue with security and crash fixes. This is probably the best choice if you want to migrate from Chrome with few hassles and no radical changes.
    Midori is a lightweight web browser based on Webkit engine. It's the default browser for Raspbian distribution, but it works great with Windows XP too.

    EthanStark: I tried both, midori would not even install, opera installed but it would not play videos on facebook so I uninstalled both. might have to go back to opera if FF will not perform after september 2017. :)

    Actually there are many others that work with XP. For example, I am currently 'test driving' Cometbird, QtWeb, Slimboat, and Whitehat Aviator. All the legacy versions of Firefox work, so far as I know. I installed Firefox 3.5 for couple days, but had to get rid of it. I had a legacy version of Opera too, but it got threw out with the Firefox. The myriad portable versions of exotic browsers look interesting...unfortunately I only had my first home PC for less than a week. My skill level has not caught up to doing portable stuff yet, but I will be test-driving every one I find eventually. So far I am not impressed with any I've tried.

    Midori has been dead since 2015 in terms of stable releases. Surprised no one has mentioned Advanced Chrome, which is a Chromium-based browser with bits of code from mostly 51, 54 and 58 and user agent string reporting from the current dev channel (meaning browser version access deny is bypassed), which was last updated in March of this year. Everything seem to be working fine with this browser.

    Ran across two other browsers for XP yesterday. Unfortunately, the first one required .NET, so looks like I did not bother to put it in my notes. I do have the second one recorded: Otter Browser 0.9.92.
