I haven't had IE crash on Lumia and chrome crashed once on my Gnex, but IE is absolutely horrendous. I don't surf the web at all on my Lumia, just cause IE is so bad. I couldn't get to my PC and I had to do a bank transfer on my phone and the submit buttons at the bottom of the page would not show up at all. It also does this weird thing to text which makes it unreadable. Chrome is miles better than IE in every way.
