    I like firefox. But recently firefox crashes frequently, think to move chrome. I like firefox because it has the huge number of plugins which are really helpful for my business.

    i detest firefox. while it has a lot of usefull plug-ins, it becomes top-heavy for every plug-in you add. and there is such a thing as browser signature too..
    i use https://www.epicbrowser.com/privacy/intro.html nowadays.fools`paradise. i quote from some review, forgot the source.. sorry..

    Now comes the bad part, I noticed that even when I am not running the Epic privacy browser there is a process in my Task manager called EpicUpdate.exe, this takes away memory resources and it really should not be there when the browser is not open. I decided to investigate a little further while the prowser was still closed and looking at the folders located in AppData/Local/EpicPrivacy Browser/User Data/Local Storage I found various files named chrome-extension_(cryptic).localstorage, one of the files was over 100Kb in size so I decided to open it up, it appears that the right way to do this is a SQL viewer but I used Notepad and inside I found a list of the websites that I had visited the day before, so much for privacy!
    there is no privacy with browsers with us-based servers, imho. especially since they gave isps a free hand to sell userdata for adds.. [what good does that do? the usual anti-terrorist excuse does not apply. but the usual money excuse does...] the morale of this all.. better the known [epic]devil than the unknown devil. just my 2 eurocents.

    Like Tiger said, I'm also sure there are many threads on this, and probably there will be just as many to come. But it doesn't hurt to refresh views every now and then.

    As they all spy on you, you might as well choose the one that suits you best in the other criteria. And for me, it has always been Opera. It's quick, functonal and secure. As for being spied upon, for what little I care, I actually prefer that its the Chinese that spy on me rather than my own government and people.

    Main browser Firefox, secondary browser also Firefox (portable) because
    Chrome=spyware with some extra web browsing capability
    IE and Edge=downloader for Firefox
    Opera=Chrome
    Safari=Worst one in top tier.

    Among second tier browsers only interesting one is Maxthon.

    I use Seamonkey which is more or less Firefox with Thunderbird(mail).
    I also have been trying Vivaldi out but it still needs a bit of fine tuning.

    Firefox, before that it was Mozilla and I didn't want Firefox at first but things do change. Thank you Tiger-1 for the tips to add more processors. Trying it out right now

    By far, firefox is best browser for me. But from sometime it started creating many problems like stopped working, browser crash but still it is better from its counterparts. For mobile devices Opera is still the best option.
