    Opera has much smaller market share compared to Firefox and Chrome but it has the most number of votes here. How come is it possible?

    Clearly Opera. better ssl-certificate handling and private tabs can be used in one browser window with normal tabs.

    Opera hands down, it's just not popular. can't believe people vote for IE

    I can't say it any better than Jamnar already has, and it bears repeating, with a few comments.

    "Funny but I just can't wrap my head around the idea of using a browser put out by a company that's notorious for privacy issues. Chrome's out for me.

    "Firefox has been the most useful to me with extensions that I need in particular, especially noscript. Unfortunately it can't be left running for hours unattended without having it gobble up an unreasonable share of system memory. AMEN!

    "With Microsoft placing more emphasis than ever on developing better privacy and security in Internet Explorer things are looking up for that browser, however it's still the primary target of malware authors and still has no where near the browser extensions that others have.

    "Safari - well I just can't bring myself to trust Apple anymore than I can Google.

    "That leaves Opera. Multiplatform and much more stable than others listed here. Having always been the underdog, much effort has been made over the years to make this a browser worth using and I think it shows in the final product."

    My only problem with Opera is that it hasn't gained the traction Firefox has after all these years, and there is some benefit to not straying too far from the mainstream. Firefox is more likely to be the second browser on almost any Windows PC, and there are far more users for each of its many extensions, which means I'm rarely the first to run into an issue, so they usually get fixed before I'm even affected by them.

    I am starting to see the effects of bloat because of my many extensions, so I'm trying to group them into functional profiles where each particular combo is most useful. Hopefully, I can extend the amount of time before Firefox bogs down, if I login with different profiles, depending upon what I need for a given session.

    I would much prefer that extensions could be loaded/unloaded on the fly, without a restart. If an extension could be created to enable this, it would be the most valuable of all.

    I hate having Google's tracking churn cycles with all calling home every hour. If it was not so chatty, I would run it.

    use chrome because of the extensions. I would like to go back to ie but I hate the dang toolbars.

    Comodo Dragon, basically Chrome without all annoying sniffing of my personal information that's just not Googles f**king business. I'm not sure if Dragon has any code modifications that increase security compared to Chromium.

    NotScripts, Adblock Plus and KB SSL Enforcer for using HTTPS always when possible.

    IE - I do not like changes unless I have to do it. It has been OK over the years.

  • Russ Martinson - 8 years ago

    I have been using Firefox since 2.1. I have not had a breach yet. Of course I make sure my Virus programs are up to date and Install all applicable updates. Do a full offline scan (MStools64) once a month. MSE once a week.

    When I voted Firefox, I meant Pale Moon x64 with only the plugins x64 Flash, x64 Java (currently disabled, yeah :) and AdBlock. This configuration proves to the fastest I've seen yet (Pale Moon = Firefox minus support for obsolete systems and stuff I don't need, like Parental Control and Accessability).

    It is as secure as Firefox (same code minus some) however I have to admit the updates don't come as often as Firefox, they're usually a little behind the main FF updates.

    Chrome beacus I experience some problems with mail in microsoft.

  • chris - 8 years ago

    I actually use both Firefox and Chrome - Firefox with Java disabled, and Chrome for use with apps which require Java. I've always found very little difference between the two on security issues, and prefer Firefox for the look.

    Why firefox? Because of NoScript...
