    I wasn't sure where this topic fit so here it is.

    I need to know if this is just me or is the behavior typical for everyone.

    Lately, whenever I start/open Chrome browser, there is a lag in response, then the screen goes mostly white for a few seconds, then all of my task-bar icons flash, disappear, and then reappear, and then Chrome finally opens.

    Once it is finally up and running, it works as well as ever.

    In comparison, I can click the PaleMoon icon and flash/bam there it is, ready and raring to go, even when there are several more tabs open.

    As it is quicker and more efficient, and a whole lot less intrusive, I do find myself using PaleMoon more and more; however, there are a few features it still lacks that are standard issue in Chrome, and I have many hundreds of bookmarks in Chrome that I can't find a way to migrate to PaleMoon, so Chrome is still a necessary evil.

    Thanks for reading and all help is appreciated.

    I'd not used pale moon before but after reading your post I downloaded it to try.If bookmarks are your problem then from chrome settings you export the bookmarks to html and from pale moon you can import those bookmarks.

    I use PM 26.5.0 which lets me use addons that are not available in newer versions.Been using Pale Moon for years now,good browser.

    I was going to recommend saving Chrome bookmarks as html then importing them into PM,I have do so many times in the past for various reasons,then I was beaten to the punch by Lozzy-loz.

    Thanks to you both; I will try that.
