I used Chromium for a few years but now I'm back to Firefox since version 57 aka Quantum. There are still some issues like the CPU consumption on Facebook (when scrolling down a lot) but it's my favourite right now.

This year my vote goes to Firefox. These guys got their act together at last.

Very good candidates among the list, though.

Note: rekonq hasn't seen a release in years. It's abandoned so I would suggest to take it off the list.

Last time I used PaleMoon, they had finally fixed the 64 bit segfaulting problem on Slackware, but they still hadn't fixed the gdk-pixbuf problem with the 32 bit version. Don't know if they current version finally fixes that, as the removal of the internal pdf viewew and the too-bad attitude of the devs annoyed me enough that I moved to waterfox. No segfault, no gdk-pixbuf issues, and it uses pfd.js, which seems to work quite well. YMMV... we gotta use what works for us

Yes, agreed, that is the most important consideration.

I like what the Otter-Browser project is trying to do, i.e., build a browser in qt that is similar to Opera-12.16, the last good version of Opera, imho, More power to them.

https://www.otter-browser.org/

I'm using it at the moment and so far, so good..... They are on the right track.

Have used Firefox on both $$ and Linux and like Thunderbird, it's part of the furniture in my mind.

Browser of the Year
and
Browser of my choice for reading LQ

may actually be two different catebories categories... Maybe change the introduction for the this year's campagin.

There is a chance for Chrom.*s to get in front of w3m. So I had to vote for w3m again. I am always delighted, when a complex Web-site (or “Web-application”) appears not only alright, but quite sensationally accessible and operable in a text-mode browser.

Then I am happy that it still exists.

W3M

I use Firefox-ESR. Chrome only when Firefox barfs on a web page.
