    Chrome all the way. With a couple plugins. Adblocker Pro, MuteTab (does what it says on the tin) and Pushbullet. Seriously guys, pushbullet is great! Shows all your phone notifications on your screen so you aren't checking your phone constantly and lets you 'push' things from computer to phone, like web pages.

    Notifiers for google mail, calander, and G+. Google translate, AdBlock Plus, .torrent to Transmission, HTTPS Everywhere, and SwitchySharp for flipping between proxies/tor.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Which web browser plugins do you use?

    Firefox: AdBlockPlus and NoScript

    Chrome: Foxish live RSS, Sheet Music Direct and SPDY indicator.

    (on both Linux and Windows - I think the Windows version is also running McAfee SiteAdvisor. Don't care about IE)

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    None, as they drive me crazy in the most part I use a mixture of Chrome and IE11 depending on the website I am using, but make a point of keeping both of them streamlined. Keeps everything nice and quick - i've yet to find one thats genuinely useful and worth the performance hit/clutter.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Which web browser plugins do you use?

    I use so many... LastPass, Xmarks, Adblock Plus, Ghostery, SmartVideo For Youtube (prefer Youtube to TV), Zotero Connector, Evernote Web Clipper, Reddit Enhancement Suite, DuckDuckGo for Chrome, Googler Mail Checker and Google Dictionary. I think that is everything.

    I use Chrome because it has better sync abilities than the others and I've tried Firefox, Palemoon and Opera which I like to varying degrees but Chrome is the most usable at the moment. I keep Palemoon installed for NoScript and trackerless browsing when I want to use that and Opera is there to test if Chrome is displaying a page weirdly although I might as well get rid of it because it uses the same engine as Chrome now.

    Most the Extensions I have in Chrome are also on Palemoon but only the ones required to use the internet like LastPass for me is essential.

    Palemoon (Mozilla has lost the plot since the UI changes), used with Stylish & Greasemonkey (1&3 scripts respectively to block/change the junk Google keeps messing with), Download Status bar, Tab Mix Plus, and Ghostery.

    Firefox with HTTPS Everywhere, Gostery, Web of Trust & Adblock Plus - together make web use a bit easier, safer and less irksome.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Which web browser plugins do you use?

    Using both Firefox and Palemoon. Just tried counting, think I made it a total of 53 currently in use with another 10 or so disabled in each of the browsers.

    Security
    Adblock Plus, Adblock Plus Pop-up Addon, Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus, BetterPrivacy, Certificate Patrol, Disconnect, DoNotTrackMe: Online Privacy Protection, Ghostery, HTTPS-Everywhere, MaskMe, CookieCuller, FoxyProxy Standard, Private Tab, Redirect Cleaner, Searchonymous, Self-Destructing Cookies, User Agent Switcher, WOT,

    and of course LastPass, NoScript.

    The others are to make life easier, alter appearance, and just make the browsers my own.
    All-in-One Sidebar, Australis Small Icons, British English Dictionary, Clearly, CustomAppButton, DoubleClick Save Picture, DownloadHelper, DownThemAll!, Enhanced Steam, Evernote Web Clipper, GKeep Panel, Gmelius, GTasks Panel, IE Tab 2 (FF 3.6+), Image Lookup, Image Zoom, ImageHost Grabber, Lazarus: Form Recovery, Memory Fox, More Tools Menu, Personal Menu, Pocket, Session Manager, Tab Badge, Tab Grenade, Tab Mix Plus, Tabs Always In Titlebar and Thumbnail Zoom Plus, Ubiquity

    Greasemonkey
    Google Tracking-B-Gone, NoPicAds, Readly, Social Fixer and Youtube Auto Buffer & Auto HD
