For may weeks now I have been struggling with browser problems, I have used Chrome for many years but suddenly started experiencing problems causing me to look for alternatives

https://www.satellites.co.uk/forums/threads/maxthon.164234/

The final nail in the coffin is that Chrome no longer supports Silverlight and a warning message is now displayed when attempting to watch on Chrome, Silverlight being a requirement of Skygo and Maxthon has developed repetitive glitching when watching Skygo, I really fell out with Firefox some years back thus I am being forced to use IE to watch Skygo. Has anyone any idea why Chrome no longer supports Silverlight? Is this politics at work?

Yes, just got the message, hadn't used the browser to watch Sky Go for a while, I use the app on my tablet. Microsoft have probably made it too difficult for Chrome to incorporate it as an addon.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Try PaleMoon, it's firefox that's been made to work properly, and it does indeed work properly... :)

You having problems with Firefox? I've used it for years and rarely have any problems.

Or try the Chromium browser - open source but looks & feels just like the Chrome browser.
