What internet browser do you use? I honestly use Google Chrome and don't understand why you'd use otherwise, but what browser do you use? And explain why you like that browser! For instance I like Chrome because it's fast and it gives me the search results I want right away.

I use firefox, mainly for speed and because google chrome is very heavy on memory usage, along with duckduckgo.

Same. Chrome is basically a spy right now.

I am sorry if I broke your poll Wikimaster0, couldn't help myself.

Not trying to tell people what to do and can only say, that it is really worth it to read some articles about
internet privacy/tracking/security.

Privacy is not about hiding things; It is important for the development and individuality of a human being.

Firefox + DuckDuckGo search engine
Addons: uBlock Origin, NoScript + some other personal favourites.

I am not gonna let some generic algorithm decide for me what I like. I can find out for myself, there are too many possibilities to consider, you can't just program that.

If I use one-time searches, I don't want to be reminded of them for the rest of my life. There was this poor woman who lost her child, and everywhere she used her social media, she got spammed with baby-toys and everything about babies.

edit:
I feel strongly about this, hence the bashing intro.. It's just that I think those commercial companies have too much power and control, and we as individuals don't have the full control over our own internet usage. I personally prefer 'clean' web pages, without too many ads, and like PMC: value people's privacy.

How Google is building a browser monopoly

Chrome allows me to use media controls to pause audio/YouTube videos, even when the browser is minimized. Does anyone know of a browser that allows you to the same aside from Chrome? Firefox doesn't, and I've installed extensions, but it only works when Firefox is open.

If I'm listening to music through YouTube, Bandcamp, etc. while gaming, then I can pause/skip track without having to alt tab out of the game.

chrome tracks your search and other private informations, and can even sell them.

I know that. That's why I was asking for browser alternatives that allow media key use, even when minimized. Something tells me you didn't click that link, because it literally addressed that.

I use Mozilla Firefox because that's the one our family normally uses XD. I think that's for privacy reasons.

You know Microsoft Edge has problems when the "other" tab is more than three times as full.

Chrome. Used to use Firefox but for some reason there was an issue with it not loading webpages correctly so in the end I switched back to good ol' trusty Chrome.

Chrome ate my ram, and I don't like the design of Firefox.
We all know why I'm not using internet explorer or Microsoft edge *Cough* Too slow *Cough*

I love that Opera saves your tabs and has big old-lady buttons in the "new tab". Helps me open up PMC with insane speed! ;p

Well do you srsly think that Firefox doesn't watch what you do. There is no guarantee that any browser is 100% safe but still.

I use Chrome. I might be switching to Edge or Mozilla soon though, Chrome eats up far too many resources, and I've heard it has lots of tracking and such.
