    Microsoft Edge is now Chromium-based, and the web hath frozen over. So, is the new Edge worth trying now, or is it all just a gimmick?

    After using Edgium for a 2 months and then switching back to og edge, even tho the new one has chromium and extensions... I still kind of prefer the old one. I hope they preserve the old one for people that wants to use it (tho I really doubt it)

    I use an alternative firefox to waterfox. Better security, special when I use an ssh tunnel, on my window. Plus waterfox removed of some telemetry settings. Downside it is only x64 browser.

    Thanks but I'll be sticking to Firefox. While Edge is definitely an improvement over Internet Exploder, it's still far less secure than Firefox or Chrome in my experience, and Chrome just can't compete with Firefox with the amount of customizations and addons that are available for Firefox. Not to mention, Firefox is much easier to use in my opinion.

    How much ram does it use up? Cause edge uses like half the amount of ram on my pc than chrome. I only have 4gb on my laptop and chrome is unusable after 3 or 4 tabs open.

    This could be the one browser to rule them all for IT admins that need to reduce how many browsers they have to support. It supports legacy IE standards, a modern Chrome experience that's compatible with the internet today, and tight enterprise security controls baked into the OS / GPO. At the moment many admins need to find ways to manage the settings and security of at least 3 of these browsers, and it becomes a real headache dealing with each one and it's little nuances.

    All browsers have virtually identical speed. Even larger performance differences are hardly noticeable by users. What ultimately matters is all round user experience.

    I tried them all.
    My personal favourite is Firefox.
    Edge is by far the worst. Might be the fastest here and there, but it sucks in so many ways...

    Speed and performance are not the only factors to compare browser. Firefox ALLOWS users to do tasks that cannot be done on other browsers especially Chrome.

    Wtf, Firefox? Lol
    You kids don’t even know what ur talking about, u can’t even describe any of its features, or specs.
    Try *brave browser.*
    The only good secure browser.
    Almost any feature is built in, *its fast its sleek, its sexy.*

  • TheFallenShadow
    TheFallenShadow 10 days ago

    *Brave is definitely the most secure, private and fastest browser.*
    Now I can just waffle away with it’s amazing features, but if ur actually interested and don’t think any Firefox rubbish is good then you should just look into it
