In my Windoze days I moved from FF to Palemoon as it stuck with essentials rather than fluff and rapid "releases" with little new that FF implemented. Despite the "new" interface and nonsense like Hello and Pocket (or whatever it is called) that raise privacy issues, FF remains my go-to browser, especially with the classic theme restorer and its tools. I once had high hopes for Qupzilla, but I seem to experience more problems with it these days than in earlier releases.

Chrome is the fastest, but ever since it started loading htop with "AutoFillInCreditCardSignOn" crap I decided to remove it and go back to Firefox, which is slow almost like old dial-up, ugh... Another thing that stinks about Google Chrome is that it considers Firefox an "unsupported browser" so opens gmail with "limited disfunctionality".
"You have been redirected to the basic HTML version because this browser is not supported. To use standard view please upgrade to a supported browser."
Guess I'll be dumping my google account too.

Voted PaleMoon.

I'm mostly using Firefox because some plug-ins I use don't work in PaleMoon, but even on Firefox the "Classic Theme Restorer" add-on is one of my must-haves.

But recently I've had issues with YouTube, for example "See more" does not display on long comments in Firefox, so I'm using PaleMoon when browsing YouTube, which seems to partially fix the issue... sometimes. And it does seem faster than Firefox, so kudos to them.

Mosaic

Don't forget mosaic, the first browser with graphics from 1993.
