Tags: Browser
I thought it would be interesting to hear your views. Well, given that both Mozilla and Chrome are widely used. What browser do you use? Which browser do you think is the best?
I personally use Mozilla but maybe i am missing out because Chrome has some very good reviews and i have always thought of switching it up?

"Best" browser is very subjective...

different users have different needs. Shucks, I have different needs at different times of day, hehe. Anyway...I will say this, I WILL NOT TOUCH CHROME WITH A TEN-FOOT POLE! I'm sorry if this offends anyone but hey, that's the way this old guy rolls. FWIW...I no longer use Google for anything either.
As for "best"...I look back in my web usage history, and that covers more years than I care to divulge...the "best" browser I ever used...Arachne for DOS! For Windows and Linux, I still prefer Presto based Opera versions, but nowadays, I have to use Firefox (I use the ESR versions) to do some things on the net.

What is the main reason behind you not using Chrome?

Quick answer, lol, you wish!

by wizard57m-cnet Moderator In reply to Quick question.

I utterly despise the underhanded method by which Google attempts to foist Chrome onto users systems! Bundling Chrome into a browser plugin update installed (especially Flash) reeks of spyware, reminds me of the old "browser buddies" that many unwary users would have installed in their browsers, and wonder why it took so long for the browser to start.
This scheme turned me against Google for any service, I no longer use their search, I don't have gmail, and I don't really consider browsers that utilize Blink for the rendering engine as a viable browser FOR ME...including Chropera (the new Opera, but that is a whole "nother" discussion, lol).
It has even soured me toward Android phones...I don't want one, dont' have a smartphone...maybe someday but it probably won't be Android, nor iPhone.

More details..

If privacy is your main concern then what i do know is that all browsers offer a privacy-session option. You could always switch-on your internet connection to a private session? Private sessions prevent the storage of cookies, history and temporary internet files.
Anyway, on the issue of Chrome, Google has most recently made changes after it released Chrome Version 56 this year, meaning that Chrome's security levels are now a top-notch higher than before.
As for me? Well because of the different suggestions given, i think i will be downloading 4 browsers, test each of them out, learn their features before ultimately remaining with 2 that suit me the best.

I don't mean to speak for him, but...

by colin.mccann In reply to lol

...he probably doesn't think he's so special " that some one should spy over you", just that Google would have the underhanded audacity/temerity/balls to try and get as much information on you, any way they can, as often as they can, so they can use it for their own advantage.
For the record, I agree with him. I use Chrome when I need to, not when I want to.
