Using Web-browser to load the X10 web-interface

Was having so many issues with clicking buttons on my tablet and computer via the web-interface until i tested the web browsers below.
I begun to blame the firmware, but PHP/apache scripts literally works on all browsers and can't be the X10.
After all the code is available to edit...since the interaction is just with the server (X10).

For me the best is Opera Browser, even though i use googles chrome a lot.
This was done wirelessly (laptop/tablet) but the X10 was wired to the router.

->Opera browser - works great with the web interface and all buttons respond well too, especially with virtual playlists from the albums via the web interface. Sometimes you want to add many tracks through the album tab sections (by clicking as many albums as possible). :)

->Chrome browser - Sometimes loads without the "SAVE" button, this means you have to refresh to load all the buttons or check for the "SAVE" button.
If you have spent sometime making changes to your collection, this could mean you lose them all if the "SAVE" buttons wasn't uploaded.
Also sometimes the webinterface loads without the Page numbers 1, 2, >>....some buttons were not sending the commands to the X10 or were rather slow...

Firefox browser - Good but can be very slow and response is not good either, script commands to X10 is not reliable.

Safari - works well like Opera, but i find the browser a bit heavy, when loading or refreshing - clean looking.

Internet Explorer - Much better than firefox, but some text display on the dialogue boxes were overlapping and seem to be on top of others.
The volume control at the top had moved slightly to the mini remote covering 2 buttons.
This could be an update issue with the browser (IE 64 bit ver), but response was good.

Obviously any of the browsers could function differently depending on updates - always good to have at least 3 browsers.... :)

thanks very much for the help. I'll try Opera and as long as I remember to check whether "Save" is visible before I make all the amends to the track listing that classical music inevitably requires, I should be O.K.
