I voted Firefox, but only because of it's "extensions". (like one that I use for downloading youtube videos)

I know Chrome has them as well, but I'm just too lazy to find the right ones for it.

My main browser I use is Opera. the Main browser i use for email is chromium. When i need something that works and does it all like webassembly It just works . Firefox is no joke and is what the people need. Learn grow with the tool the rest follow Firefox such as Netscape navigator. That said down the street from me Mosaic was a good start. Firefox finished Chromium is just a copy cat.

Since Mozilla has effectively destroyed Firefox's reputation, I'm torn between Vivaldi, Firefox and qutebrowser. On my Linux machine, I have both qutebrowser and Firefox installed...

My vote goes to qutebrowser.

I'm not familiar with most of the browsers on the list. I use Firefox on desktop and elinks on terminal.
