Which ones are good?

For some weird reason Google Chrome doesn't seem to like Java and other common plugins (which seems dumb to me)...so lots of things aren't working as they once did.

Nah my computer is too basic and isn't compatible for it, so I'll have to stay crusty for a bit longer.

What computer do you have? :lol:

I'm still waiting for my notification to tell me that it's ready to download. Hope I won't have to wait for too long anymore.

Edge is great, but I can't live without ad block-extensions and I think those aren't available yet. Chrome eats ALL OF THE DAMN RAM!

Some very high official and strict sites with important content still asks the user to browse them with Internet Explorer as they claim their content is shown more correct with this specific browser.

I use Opera. It's a pretty good browser :D

I've gone through every major browser before settling on Opera. I don't like Chrome, cos it eats RAM like nobody's business. Firefox is eh and IE = hell no :lol:

Chrome was fantastic but aren't you guys having problem with java, shockwave, flash etc?

I tried Opera on my phone and it's good, I'll try that on my pc too.

Chrome is a bunch of crap for me and eats up RAM and memory, and I have no viruses at all, trust me. I scan my laptop everyday and it's clean. Chrome just doesn't like me :lol:

I'm cool with Opera anyway, it's a small, clean browser with no add-ons. I just added the ones I wanted myself!

Chrome has a few features that I enjoy. It does eat RAM true but that's OK, I only have the odd other program running when online.

Firefox is the king of browsers for me. It's improved a lot, it's the most customizable, it's not resource hog, it's secure and absolute leader for those concerned about privacy and I just like new interface introduced in v40 that fits windows 10 design perfectly.

I went from IE to Firefox to Chrome to Safari. IE was ugly, Firefox was buggy, Chrome is so slow nowadays and Safari works and looks just fine to me.

Same here. Safari is so convenient for cross-platform browsing on my iPhone / iPad / iMac. Damn, I'm becoming an Apple boy. :lol:

Firefox is my backup because there's some good add-ons for it. However, it doesn't seem as stable as it used to be to me.
