    Stable Browser?

    Bit of a rant here.

    Sick of Chromium/Chrome "Aw Snap"
    Sick of random crashes with no reason in Firefox (nothing in about:crashes or in terminal)

    Is there a stable browser for 13.10 or do I have to look for an alternative OS (12.04 LTS?)?

    This is a bit of a showstopper

    I think the most common response will be that people don't have significant problems with their browsers in 13.10 and that you should try with new profiles.

    I have new profiles. This is a fresh install of Ubuntu 13.10. The only thing I've done is sync so I have all my bookmarks and passwords intact.

    I guess I need to find other reasons why this is happening.

    What kind of crashes are you getting?

    Descriptions of what is happening usually can be helpful to figure out why something is doing what it is doing.

    Alternatively, you might look into a lightweight browser, like midori.

    You must be brave to ask that question here.
    For most of us, LTS versions are more than enough and they tend to be more stable because they have a longer lifetime.
    On the other hand the latest versions of any OS have the most features. It's a trade-off. But I wouldn't blame Firefox. If you don't like that part of the trade-off choose the other way...
