Best browser IMO.
>>
>>52338270
Firefox. It's starting to become shitty, but it's still more flexible than all the other modern browser.
>>
>>52338270
Opera, low memory usage and it just works
>>
>>52338284
Pretty much this.

honestly theres no reason not to use internet explorer. why do you want your shit botnet crap with chrum or firefucks?
>muh open source
nobody gives a shit if you can see what theyre doing, you arent stopping them from monitoring your shit.

if 'homosexual' is its biggest flaw, sign me up. I don't even know how a browser can be that

qutebrowser because muh vim-like keybindings

Lightning

Too bad it's only for Android.
>>
Chromium is what I'm using right now. I love how firefox at least tries to give you muh freedumz and muh privacy, but good god the browser runs slower than a fat bitch with diabetes.

I want to use Safari, but it can't show webm's.


The fact that you have to apply a custom CSS to set a default zoom is also a bit unorthodox in 2016.
>>
>>52338270
IE11.
Maybe I'll like Edge once it gets a lot of plugins, including a modern adblock with element hiding & statistics, mouse gestures, and userscripts.

To be honest all browsers suck shit, but for some odd reason IE seems to suck the least. It just needs a healthy addon ecosystem.
>>
Seamonkey, it's like what Firefox never should've stopped being. Low memory usage, high customization, shit that's bundled with it is actually useful, and it's not a retarded Chrome clone.

Waterfox

>1:1 lookalike of SJWFox, doesn't have its "artistic liberties" when it comes to design and interface like that huge menu button of Pale Moon

Cyberfox.

Torch

>>52338284
This as well. I used to get upset about the changes they made, now I just kinda put up with them. I've been using it since before version 1.0 came out, it's so hard for me to adopt something else.
>>
>>52338284
This. I am not a freetard or anything but Firefox has been my go to browser for 10 years. It still runs fine on my Pentium II laptop, can you say the same about Chrome, Edge, or Safari?

>>52338284

this

version 43 hangs and crashes like there's no tomorrow with only 10+ tabs

meanwhile chrome can do 200+tabs and still use less memory and not hang and crash

And all browsers are run by SJW so it's pick your poison really

Palemoon
Crazy low RAM usage, never crashed and is compatible with most Firefox plugins I use

All you fags should try palemoon, it's probably the best browser or out there, just try once and you might not want to leave
>>
Opera, am I missing out on anything? Tried Firefox in the past, what a colossal piece of shit that is. Heard Chrome is good.

Does it have 60fps Youtube?

two questions

can I watch jewtube at 2x speed in it?
can I use firefox plugins with it?

actually third question, do you have some hard figures on memory usage? I got told midori was lightweight, and when I tried to use it the fucker was pushing 3gb
>>
>>52340907
>can I watch jewtube at 2x speed in it?
Nope
>can I use firefox plugins with it?
Most of them
>>
>>52340915
>Nope
beyond trash
>>
>>52340907
Approximately 30 tabs on palemoon are 475-500 MB of RAM
>>
>>52340821
Have you even tried Lightning?

Same no bullshit philosophy as naked, just looks a little nicer and smoother

Not naked small but <5mb small

Bredy good user experience m8, you might like it

Seamonkey (FF without the BS) and Otter Browser (light, fast, and similar to Opera)
>>
Opera is the least worst browser on the mobile. The choice is a little tougher on the PCs but I still use it for synchronization and chrome's extensions.
>>
Chrome

it just werks

Edge when they get Ad block. Pale moon until then. Fuck people who say this is meme shit. These are legit the best browsers.
>>
By the image's logic, the only one that doesn't put you at a significant disadvantage is Safari.

But really though, Firefox
>>
>>52341684
Why does 0% market share put you in a disadvantage?
>>
>>52338284
for me its already too fucked up

had to switch to Chrome
>>
>>52341592
yeah but im using an Android phone anyways so im fucked automatically
>>
>>52341720
Because then I won't be homosexual anymore.
>>
This thread has made me seriously consider installing Pale Moon. I like how it has the menu button that Firefox killed off on their never ending quest to make their browser look more like Chrome too.
>>
>>52341825
it's not worth it, since most extensions are buggy as all get out and the speed increase looks like a placebo

so i'd stick with firefox
>>
>>52340393
What's different with waterfox then?
