What browser do you use?

Bored & was testing a proof-of-concept for Nexus/local-javascript crossover. Surprisingly not too difficult. However, I only use Chrome.

Wondering what people use as their browser to get a feel of what may be the client population. @Tecton probably has the answer for current Nexus users.

The Nexus code that allows this currently if you're interested:

/*  Subversion v0.01    */
subv = (function() { var log  = console.log  var root = 'file:///bla/bla/bla'     // https://stackoverflow.com/a/10612311     root = 'chrome-extension://cffbdnelaahmhckckpgmdjjfekonhojn/subv.main.js' var c    = {}  var exy  = function(what) { if (typeof what != 'undefined') { return true }; return false }   var init = function() {   // enslave Nexus   if (exy(Nexus)) { subv.c = Nexus; c = subv.c }   // inject external   inject(root, 'script') }  var inject = function(datum, type, cb) {  if (type == 'script') {    var head = document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0]    var elem = document.createElement('script')        elem.src = datum        elem.onload = function() { log('Completed loading.') }    head.appendChild(elem)  }  if (type == 'css') {    $('body').append('<div class="subv-rule">&shy;<style>' + rule + '</style></div>')  } }     return {   c     : c,   init  : init,   inject: inject, }})()
subv.init()

    I've never seen another reason to use anything other than Chrome.

    Firefox ordinarily. Been testing out Brave with friends recently, though. Seems to be pretty good so far.

    I don't like the sheer number of processes that Chrome spawns, so don't use it on my tablet. Edge came preinstalled with Windows 10 and does what I need.

    Can't edit post now, but yeah... Noticing a significant performance improvement over both Firefox and Chrome, having used them both on this computer before... Seems to run pretty nicely on my phone and tablet, too. Even on gif/image-heavy sites/page.

    Don't think I'll be going back.

    I use Chrome, Firefox, and TOR depending on the task. Internet Explorer only exists when people only optimize their testware/courseware with Internet Explorer.

    Firefox for me. I was using Chrome at one point, but I had a bad experience with it. It felt like a whole bunch of processes running, some of them wouldn't even shut down properly. So after a couple of days of coming home to discover my computer was still running in a hot room in a tropical climate, I decided to go back to Firefox.

    Firefox
    I used Chrome for a little while when it came out and was excellent, but I switched back after a while since it feels like it’s just gotten worse as firefox has gotten better. I like chrome better on underpowered machines like my laptop though. My little brother has been testing brave and likes it so I may give it a try.

    I mostly use Chrome; however, there are some times when applications/systems run better in another browser so I will switch to whatever platform is best, depending on what I'm doing.

    Chrome
    I used Chrome. I was gonna switch to FireFox because on my old potato processor opening chrome would have it sit there at 100% for a few minutes while it came up. After I got my new processor tho it only takes up ~10% which I'm good with, so I'm sticking with it due to sheer laziness

    Firefox on my end. Used to use chrome but too much stuff. So I moved to a derivative of it. Same issues. Now on firefox!

    On desktop I mostly use Pale Moon, with Chrome just for access to certain browser extensions (Enhanced Steam, for example). On Android, I've tried a lot of browsers but I've never found one I really like, I'm using Firefox for now but I'm not really satisfied with it.

    Chrome
    I use Chrome at home, and FF at work. I've been meaning to switch to FF for everything since Chrome is a greedy memory goblin, but I keep forgetting (or being lazy and just not doing it).
