Edge usually. Unless I need to use Cisco VPN in which case I have to use IE.
TOR (Firefox) if I'm feeling secretive.
Safari on OSX.
Chrome, no. All these secretive guys on this forum have put me off it
Not another Browser comparison -- it's getting MEGA BORING.
Sometimes you have to use a particular browser because the alternatives don't have the functionality -- for instance SKY GO for SKY TV subscribers needs Silverlight which isn't supported in Edge and is "Iffy" ib Chrome.
Others prefer Menus or other ways a browsers interface looks. As for Speed etc there are so many things that ALSO have to be taken into account that the whole concept becomes impossible to quantify.
1) If your Internet connection is poor then it doesn't matter what you use --results will be frustratingly slow.
2) If the TARGET website is overloaded then your response will also be poor.
3) If the website you are using (Google is particularly bad at this) starts collecting hidden stats over what sites you've been to or how you phrase your searches then the extra code in this will cause added delays in response time. --Edge is particularly prone to yielding up the users browsing habits especially when the user is using Google.
4) Target website has poorly written code then you will also get poor response time.
Browser comparison on SPEED is probably pointless these days until you can debug waht's actually going on.
Edge because of the benefits Cortana and Bing give, but have to use IE when watching SKY GO, as not supported in Edge, but Edge makes the changeover.
backup for this statement?
I was laboring under the illusion Edge was somehow more secure (if limited) than other browsers due to being sandboxed and whatnot.

I can't answer the question.
I only use Firefox. I have only used Firefox. (Well, I must have used IE2).
It does everything I want. It is familiar. I can configure it in my sleep. Never had a problem (that couldn't be fixed in the configuration file).
