    Edge, Firefox or Chrome...which is best.


    I'm having issues with both Firefox and MS Edge and I'm wondering if Chrome would be a better choice and if so would I be able to import my FF Favorites to Chrome? Thanks in advance for your help.

    I have grown to like Edge especially with some of the recent updates. Browser choice continues to be a very personal and emotive subject so I will refrain from saying one is better than another since there are circumstances when some websites will not work well in Edge but work in IE etc.

    What you are doing is great - try them out and ask for help if one does not appear to do what you want - someone will step in and show you a way if it is possible.

    I was a diei hard Firefox user but what they are going to do starting with Fx57 is nuts. I now use CyberFox 52.1 it has not crashed yet.

    Question is what happens to all these Firefox clones that are based off Mozilla Firefox code after v57?

    I use Firefox only because it has the best dark extension and is so much easier on my eyes. All are ok with me tho.

    I like Edge as well. If you're a fan of Edge, perhaps you can you tell me how to save websites to my folders. It should be very easy; go to website, save and in the dropdown menu which lists all your folders, just save it there. However this doesn't work for me...don't know why.

    Is that a Mozilla browser, and if so, can I download it at Mozilla.com?

    Why do you save websites? I've seen this function in other browsers, and really have only used it a handful of times over more than 20 years of browsing. Nowadays, depending on what you're trying to do, there may be a better choice.

    One thing you can do is go to the menu, and choose "Open in Internet Explorer", which will open the same page in IE, then you can save from the file menu there. I know it's an extra step, and depending on things like authentication may make it even harder... but it's an option.

    Two options that may work for you are the Pocket Extension, and the OneNote Web Clipper extension. The first saves a page to Pocket (not just the link), and the other does the same to OneNote Online.
