I have read that Windows Edge won't support ad-blockers.  If this is right it can FRO.

Confusingly, there's a version of Adblock called Adblock Edge - now discontinued, apparently.

The browser I'm still most using is Pale Moon, though I'm not happy that it doesn't support all Firefox addons.  (It's based on Firefox, with the old look).

Firefox cos I use mac, linux, and Windows so I want to sync bookmarks. Chrome does that, but last time I tried it completely killed my MacBook. It's also very heavy in a virtual machine.

I hsve been forced to switch to Safari on the fondleslab because the most recent update to Chrome has rendered it unusable for reading the forum.

Currently Chrome,  although firefox is still an attractive option.

Back on Chrome on the fondleslab, though the latest update's penchant for "Aw, snap" errors on sites which used to work perfectly well may yet see me retreating to Dolphin or Opera Mini again.  FFS, Google, if it ain't broke....

On my own time, Safari, mostly iOS, but occasionally iMac. While at the clever factory (no, I don't know why I'm allowed here either) mostly Edge, but when that doesn't want to cooperate, IE11

I use Vivaldi.  It is chrome based and was created by the original authors of Opera which I used to use until it got simplified by the current owners.

Opera, the ad blocker was decent until the ad providers started detecting it :-(

Thanks for that, I hadn't heard of it's existence

That's me.
