Default IE vs Chrome

I've been using Internet Explorer for a long, long time. Now it gives me an error message on just about every site I go to .

DH says he's not used IE in a long time, but is using Chrome.

So, I've been using Google Chrome this evening. I haven't had any major problems, but I'm having to sign into everything again. Not fun, but hopefully productive!

I guess maybe I'm coming into this century??

What Internet Service Provider do you use? Are you happy with it? Would you recommend it?
Thanks,

I gave up on IE years ago and now use Chrome. Much happier with it. Takes a while to set it up the way you want it, but once done, it works really well.

I also use https://www.standsapp.org for ad blocker, which is great!! Stops all those ads you get.

And I also downloaded True Key to help with all the passwords, Love it!

Once I got used to Chrome, works fine and am now comfortable with it.

Thanks to you all! I'm still using Chrome and so far, except for having to re-sign in EVERYWHERE, it's okay.
Frankly, I can't remember everything I had set up on IE . I just expected it all to work for me!

I'd like to be able to see it just once more to see what I'm missing on Chrome.

My "search" option is now Norton Safe Search which is okay, but I know I had other options on IE.
