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

The browser is aimed at staunch technologists, heavy Internet users, and previous Opera web browser users disgruntled by Opera's transition from the Presto layout engine to the Blink layout engine, which removed many popular features

That's me.

I wondered if the forum stats are actually correct; they show almost no IE use at all.

IE is really pretty crap (pigeons would be quicker) and even the EDGE is not that much better.
I am using Google Chrome and have been doing so for some y years but have recently changed from Windows 7 onto Windows 10 with an SSD upgrade on my hard wired PC.
The SSD (Solid State Drive) was money well spent at my local Computer Fix.

Old thread so likely not the same now.
