    Chrome performs better than Firefox and IE 8. However, Firefox has all of add-ons which are great if you need them.

    The only problem I have with Chrome and Firebox is that you cannot rename the downloaded file.

    How can you tell what the files or version if it;s a generic name, such as setup.exe

    Ummm,, I don't have that problem.

    Or maybe elaborate Reghakr?

    When I go to save a file in Firefox,, I have the ability to name it anything i want before I save it. Possible that you need to check the download settings in options.

    In Firefox

    Tools / Options / Main / Download

    Always Ask Me Where to Save Files

    But can you change the name of the downloaded file, for example Paint.Net 3.53 beta.zip

    Can you update it and download it as paint.Net 3.355beta,zip
