    Re: QOTW: Which web browser do you prefer?

    Since Mozilla willfully destroyed Firefox it's Waterfox for me. I do have Chrome installed, but I avoid it whenever I can. I just don't like it and there are some long standing annoyances they just seem unwilling to fix. That, and Google's snooping. Oh, and I almost forgot, I don't surf on anything but a desktop computer.

    Re: QOTW: Which web browser do you prefer?

    Chrome as it does the job nicely for me and its inspection and developer tools assist me greatly in Network Security

    I have Mozilla installed for testing and IE for corporate stuff.

    I don't generally like making life difficult for myself so I tend to stick to mainstream flavours rather than farting about with some back alley browser.

    Firefox. I seem to be one of the quiet ones who likes the updates quantum brought.

    I use a combination of homing pigeon and smoke signals.

    Re: QOTW: Which web browser do you prefer?

    I did used to use Opera until they changed up the way it looked and worked, just became extremely confusing so I started using Firefox and haven't looked back. Liking the way they have changed it and it is quick, only gripe is the scrolling bookmarks where it used to be once you got so far down it flicked open to the right with the next bookmarks, got used to it though.

    On my iPhone I have Dolphin (which is what I used on my Android before I went to iPhone) so I am used to it, I just didn't like Safari at all and was wanting something similar to desktop Firefox. I do have Firefox installed also which syncs my bookmarks so can be handy if I am on the move and need to look something up but it isn't my preferred browser.

    Firefox mainly as it's setup for me just how I like it. Chrome on mobile along with the Samsung browser which is actually pretty good

    Re: QOTW: Which web browser do you prefer?

    Chrome atm, love Vivaldi, but the lack of an Android version (for syncing) puts me off moving permanently. May take a look at Opera, certainly trying to get away from Google a little bit.
