The Firefox developers have frustrated me several times in the past with their design choices, and they have similarly irritated a large number of add-on developers with their move to the WebExtensions API, but I'm still a Firefox user after all those years. It does what I need it to do and I approve of its attitudes towards privacy and open-source.

I voted for seamonkey, because I frequently try new browsers, but always come back to da' monkey. Presently, I also use google-chrome as well as giving the new firefox a try (the latest update seems to be a big improvement so far).

Palemoon, more lightweight than Firefox and Chrome and other full service browsers except for those using WebKit1 (Midori). More secure and works better on Facebook than browsers using WebKit1. A few sites that cater to Firefox/Chrome/Safari/IE/Edge don't run right using Pale Moon. If, those sites were coded better they would probably run well on Pale Moon.

There are many excellent candidates for this post, but the browser I find most congenial and which I've adopted as standard is Firefox Nightly, currently 59.0a1....

I’d really like to vote for Vivaldi, but it kind of feels like they spent the year mostly on fancy gimmicks rather than stuff that is actually useful (the kind that I liked about old Opera back in the day), while the people at Mozilla got a really big and generally amazing overhaul released. They really deserve the recognition they got, and now they got my vote here, too.

I never abandoned Firefox for Chrome, as many others have, but I have to say, I'm really happy about Firefox Quantum, despite some questionable actions by Mozilla lately. My backup is qutebrowser.

Firefox. Have been using it for many many years now. I prefer the ESR version.

After using Firefox since it's very early days, I have tried others since "quantum" was released. I'm now using "Opera" and an older version of Firefox on Linux, and the ESR version on Win 7.

Hmm, I got most of them installed. Plus some more

1. Opera-12.16 - I so much like the ability to define my own navigation and other shortcuts plus easy integration of custom local proxies
2. Opera-developer - My day-to-day browser
3. Chromium - because most websites just work
4. Vivaldi - because I can
5. Chrome-beta - Why not
-- Just for reference ...
6. Opera-beta
7. Opera-stable
8. Chrome-unstable - To compare
9. Chrome-stable - Seldom use it
A. Konqueror
B. Dillo
C. Epiphany
D. links/elinks
E. lynx
F. w3m
G. Midori
H. PaleMoon / NewMoon
I. Otter-browser - Why is that not on the list?
J. QupZilla
:
Z. Firefox - Too much a resource hog to be usable

One of the other felow Linux nuts I see around and I saw another and got chatting. He's one of those guys with a 0.7 ounce laptop running Arch. I commented on how Firefox is getting to be a bit bloated and clunky for my tastes, and my likely gradual migration to Chrome.

He told me about Quantum, and to hold on for a few months.

Now I'm helping my friends migrate to Firefox. Quantum saved my tradition!
