Have used Firefox for a long time, can't see myself using anything else, except maybe Opera if I get a new phone.
Let's embrace the point of no return.

I use Safari. Safari is fast, reliable and not very resource intensive. That plus its really the only decent iOS browser and since I use an iPad and iPhone, its just convenient for cross device syncing. I use IE when I occasionally use a PC (Chrome is a freaking diaster on the Mac, and even on the PC, I'm not fussed on the lack of privacy) Never really got into firefox though. Microsoft Edge is great, from the limited use I've give n it.

If, like me, you were seriously pissed off when Google disabled the backspace function in Chrome via their latest update [pressing backspace allowing you to skip back to a previous page] - then there is an extension you can download from Google themselves that turns the function back on!

Why the stupid morons decided to disable it to begin with is beyond me.

went from Chrome to Firefox to Opera, nothing to complain so far
Shame on me for changing...no, shame on you for staying the same

Edge great? LOL. Safari IS resource intensive. Old Opera was best until they went for Chromium/Blink engine. Vivaldi is a promising browser also.

I used to use Chrome for a long time but then switched to Firefox with the latest Chrome update. Some features bothered me, but now I am finding myself missing it and will probably switch back to it. I also read about its plans to make browsing even more secure by signalling unencrypted sites in this article, which sounds pretty good to me. Back to Chrome I go!
