Reportedly both Chrome and Firefox top the list as far as popularity goes. When I was using Windows XP years ago I ran both, and was satisfied. Since graduating to Windows 10 I've used Edge and found it satisfactory. It has been greatly improved from its early beginnings according to recent reviews,
However, experimenter that I am, I decided to look into other not so famous browsers. I've recently settled on Brave and have made it my default browser. It appears to be doing everything it advertises, such as blocking trackers and loading websites quickly. I've found nothing not to like. Anyhow, that's my observation. What have been your observations?

I'm so used to FF that I find it hard to jump to a different browser, I'm tried Chrome for a week or so and it just didn't behave as I expected. Tried MS Edge which is now a Chrome clone and pretty much the same thing. Part of the problem is the suite of plugins I use.

They all seem to be fine use the one you like.

I'm using the new beta version of Edge. I like it. It's based on the Chromium platform which means it will accept many of the extensions that run on Chrome. I can use my VPN proxy extension and it runs very smoothly. It has many privacy protecting features and runs circles around the older MS browsers.
Brave is another good browser. Also based on Chromium. It has a good adblocker built in.

I run Chrome on Chromebooks. Oh there are options I could use but it's clean, fast, shares bookmark and some other things from CB-1 to CB-2 to Phone to Tablet to whatever I log in with. I can take a brand new chromebook out of the box as I tap the power button on my PC and be online browsing with my bookmarks file restored FASTER than the PC Posts... If they catch a virus I can basically do a full Factory Restore (Turn them into brand new) in less time than it took me to type this (Happened 2x so far) .. In short...... I love 'em.

Firefox!


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

I go between Chrome and Firefox.
We have Android phones and Chromebooks, and love the ease of moving between them. We even have a Chromebook that lives in the 5th wheel in case we forget to take one of ours with us. We just log in to it and all of our latest stuff is on it, even if it hasn't been on for months.

Since I've been googlephobic for many years, so I use nothing from them.
When I started using Firefox it was version .9, 1.0 came out later
I run PaleMoon most of the time now days.
Also run TOR Browser.
These browsers run on either a PuppyLinux OS or Windows.
All of my browsers are 'portable' versions, and have had all 3 browsers running on the same computer at the same time.

Rarely use windows so I just use the fault browse which is Edge. I mostly use “I” devices and Safari. Don’t and won’t use anything from Google.
