Exactly. There's a few things, websites, etc. that I use EDGE for just so it doesn't skew my stuff that I care about.

I always find it interesting that ads follow me around. I wonder if cookies are used to do that on anonymous websites where there isn't a user login (e.g. not google, where they have a profile on you anyway)

There was actually someone that got really upset that Khan Academy's videos on Youtube had "inappropriate ads" on them a while back, right as Khan Academy was getting started. They made a fairly memorable scene about it, without realizing that the ads are selected based on their own internet activity. Tongue

Go figure, LOL. Finna

Chrome for me. I don't know why but Firefox feels really clunky to me so I often avoid it.

It has gotten much clunkier over the years. Though, I think it's a perception after using Chrome for so long.

I just use Firefox out of stubbornness atm. Can't adapt to Chrome at all. It indeed has gotten much clunkier over the years. Strangely, startup times are lesser now, though.

Me too! I've made about $20 from it so far. Tongue

Their last major update was a huge code cleanup that was specifically targeting startup times. That update did improve it considerably.

I'm doing it! I'm finally migrating things back over to Firefox. Firefox catching back up to Chrome, Chrome with its massive mis-utilization of system resources, and Google just being a world-controlling-behemoth, I've decided to make the switch again.

Here's to hoping Firefox doesn't fail me again.

I was actually just thinking about doing the same on my Linux based system. Microsoft Edge (ew, who uses it anyway... Finna) just switched to using Chrome's open source engine to render web pages. Basically, this means that Chrome and Microsoft are all rendering pages with the same underlying code. Only Firefox and Safari are left to offer alternatives to that engine.

It will be interesting to see how things pan out for web developers over the next few years as a result. My guess is that things will become a good bit simpler. Tongue

it's actually quite hilarious that microsoft is using open source code in more and more of their projects... they're going against the principles they defended just a decade ago.

as for firefox... I use some variant of it myself on my linux systems with chrome on my windows system, though I do use firefox on my XP box... because Firefox is the ONLY web browser that still supports the old system with a reasonably recent version.

In the poll, I voted Firefox, but that's not really true, because I use an independent fork of Firefox called Pale Moon. I also use Chrome as a PDF reader when I don't want to download the PDF I want to read. Tongue

Haven't seen that one in use. Any special features or benefits of it?

I've been using Firefox pretty exclusively since 2006 and don't plan on switching to anything else anytime soon. I've used Chrome in like six months spurts, but I haven't touched it full time since like 2012 at the latest. Firefox got pretty iffy for a bit there, but it's already made major strides in catching up to Chrome, and I think it's surpassed Chrome. The huge focus on privacy lately is awesome too.
