i have been using chrome for sweepstakestoday for a heck of a long time.  but the last week or so, it has continually bogged down with chrome.  works fine/quick with firefox.  not sure what the problem is, but just wanted to throw it out there to see if other chrome users also experienced slowdowns.

What a Great Day!

My problem is just the opposite.  I've always used Firefox and find it increasingly slow and often bogged down, when entering sweeps.  I'm using IE more and more, finding it faster.

I use Chrome and it's business as usual, no problems at all.

SweepstakesToday.com is not using HTTPS and my version of Firefox will only open occasionally. This site has become basiclly useless.

There are other Browsers available. 


Vivaldi is an open source Browser that has been developed by the Norweigem developers of Opera after they sold Opers to a Chinese Consortium.


Thee are other Browsers also - Google - - list of Browsers - - and you'll find them

Chrome has been giving me network errors since the beginning of the new year.  I thought it might be my router connection but I've talked to others having the same problem using Chrome.

I've been using Opera for a couple of years when Chrome started to slow down my PC. Haven't had any issues. It has great reviews. Let me know if anyone has heard anything bad about it. I have IE, Chrome, and Firefox loaded on my PC but only using Opera

I'm partial to FireFox and rarely have problems with it.

I use FF most of the time and have had no problems except that videos do not run smoothly. The videos run best on IE. Ocasionally a sweeps will not fully load on FF and I use Chrome. Currently only one of the forty or so sweeps I'm entering daily needs Chrome.
