    safari usually for general browsing, chrome for ad intensive sites such as streaming and sites i don't want pop up mania occurring, safari is not really a preference just default browser on osx, does have its limitations though, nothing major for most websites

    Firefox for me... IE11 is good, but Firefox feels sturdier... and I bet chrome is leading 'cause every crap you download on the internet "offers" to install Chrome for a "faster web experience"... I dont find it fast or very good overall... interface is not to my liking... too "child's toy" looking for my taste!

    Pale Moon x32. For the original classic FireFox look without the bloat of FireFox. It's also easier to manage updates and customizeability. Using SRware Iron(Chrome clone with privacy enabled, for the most part) as secondary in case of website compability issues. Used Comodo Dragon browser briefly, but seemed same as Iron.

    I used to browse with Firefox, that was until Chrome showed up.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Which is the best desktop web browser?

    I recently just switched from chrome to icedragon (based on firefox)as I was getting concerned about the security of chrome.

    All in all its not quiet as fast as chrome and i'm finding the icon placement confusing still but it seems to do the job just fine.

    EDIT: I'm now going to try palemoon x64 after reading their website info.

    Firefox here, I won't go near chrome due to data mining and its annoying trying to force installs on the back of other programs.

    IE doesn't upset me too much just got everything in sync with firefox now.

    I've used all the big 4 at some point; IE when I didn't know better (or at work), then FF until it started to go downhill. Used Safari for a while after that but it's bloated. Been with Chrome for about 3 years now and wouldn't go back.

    For everyone who wont use chrome because of googles tracking, there are plenty of other browsers based on the chromium engine without googles proprietary features.

    I use IE 11 as my everyday browser, but use Firefox for my RSS feeds.

    Chrome for me. However, I do use Opera on my iPad as I find it nicer to use and faster than safari which does crash a lot on iPad Mini 2 if you're trying to load pictures. No such problem with Opera though

    Firefox - It's infinitely customisable with a huge number of add-ons available that let me do what I want when I want. I'd never use chrome because it's always packaged with something else that you have to untick the check box to stop it being installed and set as the default browser - a nasty pernicious way of getting it installed without the user noticing. It's also Google and they data-mine everything. IE? Not even installed.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Which is the best desktop web browser?

    Im using chrome. It has annoyed me recently with bugs and questionable design decisions but i couldn't get on with firefox or opera so just decides to just put up with them. What always confuses me about browsers is why, in a world of widescreen monitors, noone has put navigation/bookmarks/tabs down a single side of the screen instead of across the top. Loads of websites have huge white/black bars down each side and it seems like an obvious thing to include.
