I used to use PaleMoon, but they removed the internal PDF viewer a while ago, and I've had too many compatibility problems since. I switched to WaterFox, another FireFox branch. Not sure how popular it is, I don't see it on the list above, but it has been working quite well for me.

Firefox - because mature open source project.

However, forced to shift Firefox ESR after Quantum released. I'd like to see these two browser versions as separate choices in the survey.

I use (the newest) Firefox because of its addons against ads (uBlock and uMatrix in particular). Since it lately likes to freeze for some seconds from time to time I am considering to move to chromium -- where I could get the addons too AFAIK. Since FF anyhow got the most votes up to now I'll vote chromium to help making things more interesting .

I voted for the sensible and simple seamonkey.

Palemoon I have been trying found it clunky but am hoping they will do better.

Firefox seems to suck more with every "improvement".

I prefer Firefox ESR because I can keep using all of my favorite extensions.

In the end I voted for Chrome. Why? I'm currently developing web based apps. I used to use FireFox, switched to PaleMoon, but PaleMoon has developed too many problems. So I switched to WaterFox, which I now use in development. But if the end user is having problems, I tell them to try it in Chrome or I can't help them. Everything works in Chrome. Everything. I can't say the same for FireFox, and MSIE is a joke. I detect Internet Explorer at app startup and give them a big red warning in advance that they are likely to have problems if they don't switch to FireFox or Chrome.

I vote Firefox because of it being a great browser for a wide variety of uses while being open source and very compatible.

Couldn't vote on this one because the new Firefox sucks since they redesigned the interface a few months ago. So currently I'm hanging on with an out-of-date browser and not sure what to do when I need to upgrade again.

Now this is a difficult one for me for two reasons. I ran Opera from 2004 but this is the first year since owning my own computer that I have moved browser. Opera just does not work that well in Linux. I moved over to Chromium on the desktop which works excellently - it's quick, configurable, great with streaming media and extensions and looks great.

However, I've also been impressed with QupZilla on the netbook. It also looks good, is conveniently fast for low-power computers and is reminiscent of the old Opera. The version in the Debian repos - 1.8.9 - is a little buggy, but the latest stable version on Slackware - 2.0.1 - looks and works great. I also like the built-in ad blocker. Since I feel that it's important to support small developers, I'll go with QupZilla, though both browsers are great.

My experience has been just the opposite. Pale Moon has improved with each release. The current version, 27.7.1, and the previously two releases have worked flawless at every web site I've visited,
except Netflix. For that I use Firefox.
