What is your default browser?

Post by danielson on Thu Dec 22, 2016 11:56 am

Firefox used to be my default, but things have changed alot since Australis...
Now i find myself hopping from one to another and just like Linux distros, i just can't make up my mind anymore.

chrome on most of my machines, except for a few Linux machines that have the default as firefox. and MicroShaft Internet Exploder on the windows 8.1.

The only good thing about Windows is that it never gives you any terminal illnesses.
Needless to say, Terminal illnesses are the only problem with Linux.

not really, but chrome has better touch screen integration as well as a few extra features. I really hate chrome's bookmark manager and tab manager though.

For a long time i enjoyed Firefox which is "backed-up" by its extensive set of extensions. This combination makes me feel more in control of the browser, something akin to driving a standard as opposed to an automatic car.

Chrome is fun for speed and easy backup/restore of profile etc. and more and more extensions that you may not necessarily find for Firefox.

Too bad they abandoned Opera 12 - it was a promising browser!

Firefox exclusively for me with the addition of "ghostery" add-on.

Google anything does not sit well with me, that said, for my mobile phone I begrudgingly put up with android. When will linux gets its mobile phone os act together, they are falling farther and farther behind which is so dissapointing.

Firefox beta does well on my Android (Nexus 2013).
In fact, just like the desktop version, i find there has been an improvement on both sides. Wink

Firefox for most things, Google Chrome just for running Netflix.
Netflix seems to run smoother on Chrome.
