Finally ditched this browser. Just too many veried problems..search yields mega adds, can't use Lastpass, just one thing after another. Now using Firefos. I was less than thrilled with it in the past. But better than Google. I still have a ChromeBook which is decent but I would not buy it again.

Interesting, Google Chrome used to be to go-to to get away from Microsoft Explorer. So you're saying Google Chrome has run its course?

Chrome is the browser web applications are developed on. Other browsers are tested on.

Keep it around.

Yea..I am not ditching it but right now Firefox works better (for me). And as far as ChromeBook it is(for me) counter intuitive with respect to file structure and overall layout. The good thing it does not seem susceptable to hacking. And that is why I abandoned Windows and went to Ubuntu

I dumped both Chrome and Firefox and went to Edge (Chromium engine). Very impressed with the speed and lower resource use and since the Chrome plug-ins/add-ins work with it, the transition for me was easy.

I use chrome for the auto translate feature when I’m reading the foreign press. That’s all.

Firefox and Firefox close cousin Comodo Dragon for me these days.
The new Microsoft Edge I downloaded last week and immediately disliked finally allowed me to uninstall it...... Yipee!!!

All the years Edge has been on the market, we never could uninstall it........ until now.

I mainly use Firefox but sometimes use Chromium, the open-source version of Chrome without Google's secret sauce.

I ditched Chrome a few years ago for Opera. Never looked back.

Been using Firefox since its inception. It was one of the first if not the first to enable you the opportunity to completely block pop-up ads. I don't trust Chrome as I feel like I am allowing a Google trojan into the PC. Bad enough that I use gmail and Google for searches. Happy with Firefox so far.
