I myself have been using Opera and Vivaldi, now leaning toward Vivalidi as that was a branch off from the original Opera...but since then Opera has been sold to some Chinese company. But Vivaldi is kind of a side project of one of the co-producers of Opera or something like that who became unhappy with the direction of Opera.


So essentially Vivaldi is supposed to be like some earlier versions of Opera, before they made a bunch of changes and sold the rights to it. But yeah it is a pretty nice browser seems to have a lot less gunk than some other ones. Anyways what browsers do you guys use?

Have 4 browsers in this Windows 10 box. Primary is Firefox. Also have ie and Edge which it came with in October; and, have installed Chrome.
Think I have seen people say Firefox uses more memory than one would think, I don't know enough about computers to determine that for myself. What I do know is that it is the browser I feel most connected with and works in a way that seems natural to me.

Firefox daily, IE only whenever I must and never Edge.

If you still can, Sweetleaf, maybe add a poll to this thread...and here are some previous WP results:

Most secure = firefox (2014)
Fastest = safari
most stable = chrome
most supported (still) = IE

Mozilla Firefox 64% in 2007

Firefox 69% in 2008

I use Firefox on the PC.

And a little known browser called Midori on the raspberry pi.

I like Firefox, it's one of the most extensible and configurable browsers around.
And Midori, is nice, it does all the things you want a browser to do, no bloat, and runs really well on a raspberry pi.

That kinda makes sense, I don't think Safari is nearly as bad as Internet Explorer..which is the default on windows, it was because that one kept giving me issues I started looking for new browsers. My current computer has Microsoft Edge as its default which is basically just glorified internet explorer so I can't say I am interested in using it.

Interesting, what operating system has Firefox as its default? that would be a much better default than internet explorer.

Should have thought of that...well perhaps in the future when this thread gets buried in the depths I can do that, probably too late to make changes to this topic now.

Linux Mint has Firefox as the default as well as many other flavors of Linux. Never going to be anything but Internet Explorer or Edge on Windows since Microsoft owns them all. haha
