  • Ray Musgrave: Firefox on PC. Firefox and Vivaldi on Android. I might stop using Firefox mobile though because they disabled about:config.

  • Pranav: Edge on my PC and chrome for android
  • Shubham: Vivaldi on PC due to good tab management with tab split and stack. Ice raven (Firefox fork) on mobile due to good performance and adblock.
  • eszklar: Firefox for PC. Vanadium on Mobile (GrapheneOS default browser).
  • Bojan Tomic: Chrome is still the most useful and the most convenient. Everything just synchronizes without any hassle, all your passwords are just there, etc. I don’t see me switching anytime soon. I tried using other browsers on the list, but they’re just years and years behind.
