What else can I do?? IT'S ******* IRITATING!!!

Thanks, i wil see if it works

What would you suggest?

I've been using Google Chrome for the past years and I love it.

Chrome is starting to do the same - ads that eat up your memory with always running videos - hate it but it seems to be the best one around
