The last thread about this is ancient, so...

I'm a little curious if Chrome is any less ubiquitous among this crowd than it would be around the average Internet crowd, so...

I use Firefox. I was using Chrome from like 2012-2017, but Quantum made me switch. I know a lot of people hate the Chromification of its layout, but Firefox was already pretty bad about that anyway — at least now its layout makes sense. Plus, I'm one of the tiny percentage of people who still likes flexible addons (i.e. uses addons that aren't just uBlock Origin or w/e). Also I kinda think Chrome looks aesthetically like a Mom browser that's used exclusively for Facebook. Also I like Google less than Mozilla.

Well enough about my stupid idiot crap. What browser does y'all like?

A lot more choice than the old poll too. I bet some people have migrated since too.

I used Chrome for a long time, but quit in favor or Pale Moon. the main issue I had with Chrome is the lag.

booting it took way too long, so unless I kept at least one tab open at all times I had to sit through the wait. be it when starting the browser for google, or clicking a link sent to me.
outside of boot, there was also some lag from having too many tabs open at once. it's a rare occurence, but erg.

I used to be an avid Firefox user, but a couple years ago fed up with how slow it was becoming, I jumped ship to Pale Moon.

When on Windows XP I use a fork of Pale Moon called New Moon which just has compatibility patches applied to make it run.

If I'm doing web design I'll use other browsers for compatibility testing, the most frequent browser I test with is Retrozilla (which is based on Firefox 2 I believe.)


When on Plan 9front I use Mothra, which is the ultimate web browser. :V

I use Firefox primarily; I think Mozilla is the best hope to avoid a Chromium monoculture, but it's not looking good :/

0 Chrome votes so far. Whoah.

That's actually pretty impressive.

I was using Chrome til I heard that Firefox is supposed to be faster now. I even thought about going back, but I got sick of how it tried to persuade me to integrate into the Google ecosystem, with the way it tethers the browser to your Gmail account and all.

Quantum has been a much needed update to Firefox, and I like it more now, but I still don't like using it as a default browser. I do have Firefox Developer Edition installed though. Also, I never liked Chrome.

Currently using Opera, though I do seem to be switching between it and Vivaldi every once in a while. I really want to fully switch to Vivaldi, but even after v2.1 launched, there's still some features missing or hidden compared to Opera. Not to mention, because of its heavily customized UI, opening and closing windows is a bit slower than I'm used to.

The line between them last time I checked was even more blurred.

It's part of why I jumped to Pale Moon. Firefox was just losing its own identity all the time, blending in with the Chromium crowd. Switching over, it's how I remember it. The old Firefox experience.

Else, I would have gone back to Internet Explorer.. but the site compatibility in it is just terrible.

what I remember of Internet Explorer is that it screws AJAX. so that's neat.
Edge being a cheap refurbished IE, you may have more luck with that if you nevermind it's a sinking boat.
it does fixes some stuff, but from what I recall it largely derps in the same way IE did. the new interfaces felt like unfitting gadget, not quite fully functional nor practical.

there's also these news. tldr; Edge is to be discontinued and replaced with a chrome-based browser.
shoutout to the ones saying that Chromium is being shoved down most mainstream browsers.
