I use Firefox. It's worked the best for me out of all others. MS Edge is wonky and has it's limits.

Didge Ancient_Hippy Dec 17, 2016

I've been using Firefox for many years. Love it. My daughter talked me into giving Chrome a try it seems good though it might prove to be another answerMug and I'll be back to the Fox again.

Google Chrome because i like it the best and i like how all of my bookmarks, passwords, extensions, notes, documents etc.. are synced to my account.. i like how snappy it feels too. i haven't used any other browser since the summer of 2010 and i dumped Windows for Chrome OS in 2012 when chromebooks finally came to Canada.  

Didge jnijnin Dec 18, 2016

Thanks, Skunky. I certainly don't want to drop Windows but Chrome is a very good browser. Whether it's as good as Firefox (my old favourite) I haven't decided yet, but figured it was time to try it out. So far it seems very good.

Chromebooks are getting android apps within the next couple of month (most already can run them in the Dev Channel) which means, you can run other browsers like Firefox, and will be able to use Microsoft Office and a million other apps (offline of course).  chrome os is transitioning into a traditional OS like Mac and Windows. Its my personal belief that there are no better or worse browser- its just about personal preference. every individual has a best for them (i'd never sit here and argue with a Firefox user over it). Originally, from the beginning of 2007 (when i bought my first computer) until the summer of 2010- Firefox was my fave browser.

I use Google Chrome mainly and Firefox is my back-up. Never much mess with the Edge as some sites don't support it well. Chrome works best for my Slitherine Forum and downloads beta-test games quicker than Firefox. But I still use Firefox here and there.

Didge Rooster Dec 18, 2016

Thanks, Rooster. I've been enjoying Chrome but have only used it for a couple of days. It's hard to beat the Fox and I might return to it but not till I've given Chrome a fair turn.

I use MS Edge, as I don't do much on the internet and when I got windows 10 it was there. Long ago I used Netscape, but lost it through the years and changes in computers.

Didge Korvo Dec 18, 2016

Edge has improved a lot but Microsoft got so far behind with their browser that it's still playing catch-up. It's not bad now but doesn't perform on some sites.

Netscape? Now that's a name I haven't heard in a long time. :) 

Korvo Korvo Dec 19, 2016

guess they ran into problems, AOL bought  them in 98, and quit supporting the netscape  naviagator in 2008

Marianne Dec 18, 2016

I am also using Firefox.

That was beautiful, Marianne and the forest is lovely. We don't have that kind of forest in Australia. Thanks for sharing.

Marianne Marianne Dec 19, 2016

You're very welcome, Didge.

I use Google because that's what is on my Galaxy and it's my only source of internet. It also has Chrome but I just never went through the process of setting it up. I never had any trouble with Google.
Didge Mountain Man Dec 18, 2016

I love the "Hey Google" function. Sometimes when I use it Mrs Didge's Galaxy pics up my voice as well and I get both phones answering in a duet. :)

LOL!

I primarily use Google Chrome on my PC. Every account I have is attached to Google in some way so it makes it so much more convenient to use a Google product. For my mobile device, I've been using Firefox. That's mostly because the Mobile Chrome doesn't work properly at the moment it seems.

Didge Corey The Goofyhawk Dec 18, 2016

Didn't know about the mobile problem. Thanks, Corey 

It's not any major problems just too many annoyances for me to want to use it as my primary.

TheOtherTink Dec 21, 2016

Firefox.
