Best browser for theStar ePaper

Are you a subscriber of theStar ePaper or theStar ePaper bundle which includes also the printed newspaper?

If you are, have you ever used the Google Chrome browser to read the ePaper? I have found that Chrome browser is not suitable for the ePaper.
1. There is no top left horizontal or top right horizontal menu bar
2. once logged in and reading the ePaper, there is no log out button (right menu bar)
3. without the top left horizontal menu bar you will not be able to access you the table of content for navigation or the calendar to access the past issues (left menu bar)
4. without these menu bars, you will only be able to view the main section and not the other sections like Metro or the Classifieds
5. there is no sign out button in the Chrome browser
6. if you first use the Chrome browser, then use the Firefox or IE browser to get the above, you will not be able to sign out in the Chrome browser so when you try to sign in the other browsers, you will not be allowed to as you are already signed in elsewhere

(Note: the way to overcome no. 5 & 6 is to keep pressing the back button till you get the sign in/out page and there you will find the button to sign out)

So my recommendations is to use the Firefox browser (preferred) or the less popular Internet Explorer. See screenshots below (click to enlarge):
