    I like Edge for it's speed, but it is still missing some things. So I am currently using IE on windows 10. Tried them all, always went back to IE for some reason or another.

    Vivaldi. Some software I use at work is web based and requires the Java plugin and for that I use IE.

    Edge/IE
    Firefox

    Chrome is rather pathetic... i really am confused why so many people use it considering it's sad state.

    I like Firefox but it crashes like no other.
    At this point in time, Opera is my favorite.

    Edge is my preferred browser, previously were IE.

    Any of the others Firefox/waterfox opera or chrome never needed to use.. besides I never liked the way my favourites were stored..

    ... and you like the way Favorites are stored in Edge? Have you looked for them? Buried deep they are! Another issue with favorites in Edge, is the way they look when you pull them up in the browser, I'm not liking the two lines of info, makes for far too much scrolling. Plus if you have to log into sites that require "credentials" (like my seedbox), they are not stored and you have to input username and password every time (and for me that is not functional, the PW for my seedbox cannot be changed and is very hard to remember).... there was a couple of other things that turned me back to IE, but can't think of them right now.

    I don't have an issue with edge at all, and when I'm referring to my favourites under firefox its to do with news on HH.. I need more than one to be open at most times and just find that I had to do to many button clicks to get to where I need to be.

    The way they are stored on edge I know where they are. Plus Firefox needed to many plug-ins to get it to work properly for my use. But I cant say for the newer versions as I never bothered to keep up with it.

    Firefox. I'm completely used to it and works flawlessly.
    I've had flings with Opera and IE but it never worked out.

    Chrome.

    I used to use Firefox, but I've had issues time and again with plugins. Every time they release a new version 90% of my plugins would stop working, and only 80% of that would get updated to work on the new version. It's gotten to the point that only a fraction of my plugins work now. With Chrome, the only one I continually have a problem with is IDM. Everything else just works, version after version.

    Chrome. I've been using it for years and I've never had to look for another.

    I’ve always used Mozilla. This is the most secure web browser created by a human. What is more, it offers various add-ons that simplify web browsing, such as add-block or cleanlinks app. One way or another, I give my preference to Mozilla Firefox.

    Recently switched from Firefox to Vivaldi on my work PC. Firefox is just too sluggish, and the Kickstarter site takes 100% of a CPU core for some reason.

    I've been a Firefox user for years now. The only thing that seems to cause any issues at all is with each update, Adobe Flash has to also be updated. (And, yes, when will that be sent to the dung pile???)

    As for keeping my own favorites: I simply created a LIST category and simply place anything I want to retain for future quick links, it goes there.

    Never did have a favourite, but now I have to say it is Waterfox hands down.

    Firefox = steaming pile of poo. They would update it, and none of the pluggins I was using would work anymore.
    Chrome = resource hog. Over time it gets slower and slower. Stream music from it, and you find the system resources just disappear after a while. Video streaming... same thing, but I get a lot of buffering.

    Opera has been really good, and I use the portable version at work, but at home, it's getting no love from Intel's True Key, or Bell's Webmail service, so I can't use it for everything.
