    Hey everyone first time using a mac machine. I recently bought a Retina Macbook Pro and installed El Capitan.

    In regards to flash (seem to need it for changing quality of Twitch.tv and for Hulu, etc)

    I have currently downloaded google crome, as i use to use it on my windows desktop.

    Do others here use crome if a website needs flash? or do they install flash and use sarafi?

    Thanks

    I absolutely don't trust Google for web browsing, so Im using Safari.
    Cant see a single good reason to use Chrome on a Mac (unless you have an Android tablet/smartphone and want to keep them sync)

    I use Safari without Flash installed as my main browser. Then I have Chrome installed and use that only if a site requires Flash. Works our perfectly for me and I don't have to fuss around updating Flash.

    As above... If I ever need to use flash (ie a dodgy sports-stream) I'll go to Chrome, otherwise it is Safari and Firefox for me.

    I don't trust Google anymore. I use Safari all the time.

    Thanks for the tips. I have no reason to use crome over then for flash
