    I like having everything under same account, even phone and added my brothers phone to it. Everything is nicely synced across all devices that way.

    I suggest you try Vivaldi, it's a really great browser created by the inventor of Opera. You can customize almost everything. Plus you can install chrome addons.

    I really like it, if it wasn't for 2 details it would long have replaced Firefox:

    - No possibility to restrict bandwidth of downloads
    - No "No-Script" addon

    But I don't know if these are important to you. Probably not since you like IE 11 which offers nothing like that.

    I have Vivaldi installed but not using it much. FF is still the king for me.

    I would try Vivaldi, but as its chrome based it probably has the same problem that I have with emails and chrome. If I get an email with information on for my research (hobby) - Chrome cuts the text out AND the background behind the text so I have to put it into word or notepad then cut it again to paste into my webs. Sample:

    Well it's based on Chrome but it's not exactly Chrome. So giving it a try cannot hurt.

    I give up!! IE11 has gone stupid. Opened up pc today and IE11 has removed all my saved passes, and does not even recognise my recently changed ones as valid. Back on Chrome for now until blood pressure subsides. so will now have a look at Vivaldi (its russian isnt it??)

    Well, I have defaulted Vivaldi, after a lot of work and the removal of quite a few ad cookies embedded. Vivaldi is fast, I like the home screen as well as speed dial, changed search to google, I don't like being told what to do eg: bing. Running quite well, but not tried the cut and paste problem that is prevalent in Chrome. Imagine its probably here too. Nice browser all the same.

    Struggling with setting up bookmarks

    Nope, they are from Oslo, Norway.

    Glad you like it, it's really a nice browser, I like software that offers lot's of settings, gives me the chance to adapt it to my preferences. Currently I'm switching back and forth between Firefox and Vivaldi, Firefox still being the default browser. But if Vivaldi keeps evolving this might change soon.

    The browser comes from Oslo, Norway, the company that develops it is located there (take a look at their website). I know Vivaldi was a musician in Italy. But we are not talking about the musician here, we are talking about the browser which is called Vivaldi.

    According to the website, that's their address:
    Norway
    c/o Det Lille AS
    P.O. Box 7008 Majorstuen
    0306 Oslo
