Tried using Firefox again when Chrome was bugging out (still is visually at times but I'm dealing lol) and it never stuck. I've grown so used to Chrome I can't use anything else. :-3 Though it's annoying when I click to view tweet threads and it starts flickering, same with some Facebook games. Not a deal-breaker though sure is something I wish I could fix. Seems like a common issue with some versions of OS X.

So far Firefox has pretty much all I want. I have a certain setup of addons and have not found anything similar on other browsers that came even remotely close.

    Ive tried them all over the years but keep coming back to Firefox.

    I was ready to dump it though due to some niggly performance issues but Firefox Quantum has cured those, it has been faultless since that release for me, it just works.

      Over the years, I've at some point considered IE, Netscape, Safari, Firefox, and now Chrome to be my preferred browser that is "better than anything else". They've all been my favourites, until they let me down some way or another (long time to load webpage, laggy streaming services, resource hogging, broken plugins, conflicts, etc.) or enticed me with new features (add-ons, extensions, Incognito, developer tools, etc.).

      I've been exclusively using Chrome for six years now, aside from using IE or Edge to re-install Chrome. On mobile, I appreciate having my E-mail, bookmarks, Google Docs, and stuff syncronized across multiple devices with a single sign-in secured with 2-step verification.

      I just took a HTML/CSS course last quarter. This thread has reminded me I should also be carrying Firefox/Opera for testing purposes. So thanks for reminding me to install them. I'm curious now how my old friend Firefox is doing.

          For sure, Chrome. But it's true thats there is some websites that works better in firefox, so it's good to have both. But Chrome as default browser always.

            I use Firefox ESR, solely because I hate it the least.

                I stay with good old Firefox, but Chromium on Lubuntu because it runs better for some reason.

                  I prefer Firefox. On my phone, I like using Opera MIni.

                  Firefox is still my main browser in my laptop. On the other hand, I've switched the mobile browser to Firefox Rocket in these few months.

                    I've been a heavy Chrome user for years across all devices, I originally made the switch from Firefox back in the day when it became too bogged down and slow. HOWEVER, I've recently jumped back to Firefox! It has amazing privacy settings, great addons, and is super zippy with the new quantum release.

                      Chrome. With a number of extensions within it.

                      For some reason even now I have an SSD and 16GB RAM, The newest version of Firefox is slow. I keep it as backup though.
