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

    I'm using either Firefox or Pale Moon (varies between PC's).

    One reason is that I always keep tons of tabs open (hundreds typically), and a combination of Tab Mix Plus and TabGroups Manager keeps them in check. No other browser lets me do this.

    Another reason is that Firefox (/ Pale Moon) is easily controllable. It's one process, and I can know exactly how much RAM it takes, and kill it if there's a problem. Other browsers open up tons of processes which take over the task manager and are impossible to track.

    Finally, Firefox takes less RAM than other browsers. I once saw Chrome take about 1GB for a single tab.

    (On the down side, it's not the most peppy of browsers.)

    Chrome is the best, however I use Firefox as its second best.

    My wife uses chrome and I use Firefox so we can have our own browsers.

    Firefox has always been my number 1 choice. However, with the way it's progressing and after having a look at the Australis UI, I may need to find another browser.

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

    After reading about Pale Moon I've decided to give it a try. So far so good, seems like the right fit for me considering I liked the add-ons Firefox offered but didn't use half the features that were included with the browser.

    Nifty drag, drop and search function as well as better built in privacy.

    Pale Moon (I knew of it but kept forgetting about it)and trust me you'll be more than happy with it, all the old plugins work and arguably it's slightly faster than firefox in my opinion... you can even import your firefox settings/plugins via a simple tool. I just changed because firefox was 'annoying me'...

    It's basically the way firefox was before they started changing it into a chrome clone

    Firefox Primarily.

    I felt uncomfortable being so Google centric - so I stopped with Chrome - but have to use it at work! Also Iron on one laptop. I'm tempted to give Pale Moon a try too...
