Default Browser Wars!!!


I know that there are already 2 threads dedicated to this, but they are old and feeble. So I now ask, which web browser do you prefer, and why?

[ EDIT: I tried to add a poll, but it timed out on me, so no dice. Come on mods! ]

Opera
Internet Explorer
Firefox
TOR
Chrome
Edge
Safari
Netscape
Maxthon
SeaMonkey
Vivaldi
Torch
UC Browser
Brave
TORCH
Midori
Other [Please specify below]

Firefox and Chrome. IE is garbage and I did use Opera once a long time ago, but only to toy with it. Seemed fine, really.

I use Firefox 99.9% of the time at home. Chrome at work.

Got all my plugins and stuff in Firefox and I just like the menu layout and various shortcuts and functions, some of which Chrome lacks.

I use IE (IE6 to be exact) along with an IE add-on called MyIE2 (Best IE wrapper I have ever found)

I use Opera most of the time. I like the layout and the built-in VPN. I use FireFox for downloads though, because it seems to be the fastest on my PC. I use TOR [and its clone, RoTOR] to access the dark web.

Other than IE and Edge which are ancient and terrible, I find the difference to be usually negligible between the major browsers. I use Chrome out of habit/familiarity but I have no complaints using Firefox or Opera. Chrome also is mass installed on all devices at work so obviously I use it a lot there

Chrome is perhaps the easiest browser to get used to. I don't use any other browsers anymore. It's plain and simple. Nothing extra.

Started using Firefox back when it was cool and hip to not use IE, "'cause tabs, bro." Have been using it ever since. Each time they change their layout I don't like it, then I get used to it and it's like secondhand to me.
