    Opera is just Chrome in disguise now. If you want the older Opera feel you should check Vivaldi browser.

    I still use IE 11, but also FireFox because Chrome restricts Internet speed to half speed. Not sure why, but if Google would speed up the download speed I may consider Chrome again. My laptop speed is fairly even between the tree browsers, but desktop speeds are much different.

    I used to use Chrome but I started feeling that they was controlling too much, even extensions that I was using without any problem at all they started blocking so, I moved to Opera.

    After a while Opera started being so slow because of extensions, specially FVD Speed Dial, I have 250 dials and opera takes long to open and most of the time it comes with a white background instead the black one I have set and to have it I'll have to refresh.

    So, I have changed to Vivaldi and all those problems are gone, Vivaldi is very fast and easy to be customized and besides all that it still a baby, more will come as it grows.

    The only trouble that I am having with Vivaldi but isn't Vivaldi fault it is that I use Sticky Password and it doesn't yet fully work with.

    So between Chrome and IE11 HTML5 internet speed test. IE can't handle my 300 - 350 Mbps internet plan (while Chrome even saturated my 802.11ac WiFi connection (at 380 Mbps peak and 359 Mbps average respectively)

    Update: I bought a new desktop. Dell's top-of-the-line. Firefox is not slow anymore.:)

    I've stuck with Firefox for years, and I never liked Chrome.
    But Firefox performance is waning and it hiccups too often.
    So I may soon switch to Chrome. Not because Chrome is getting better than Firefox, but because Firefox is getting worse.

    I have been with FF for years and is my default browser. However since vr #50, have not been able to look at my security cameras. Every time I try Edge, it is short lived. Importing bookmarks to use is just one of many problems , they seem to get lost on the next upgrade. Edge is just not smooth to use as FF. Tried to use it to sign in to work, 50K employees+, could not do it. Exchange servers said that my browser was out of date??. I.T. said they prefer I.E. only. Some banks that I use only allow IE for bill pay etc. Chrome has installed several times on my PC because I missed the "fine print" where you must uncheck the Install Chrome box. I think less devious people would ask you to check the box to install instead of the other way round. I do not use IE very much, but always seems to work when I do

    I tried Chrome one time. It installed an updater program. Between Chrome and the updater my DPC latency went sky high and I had dropouts and clicks in my recording studio program (I use the PC for internet and for recording studio). I had to uninstall Chrome and tried to uninstall the updater but even after uninstalling there was over 100 registry entries remaining and the updater was still causing problems. I had to manually edit the registry to remove the entries. After editing the registry (and a reboot) all was well again. That was with Windows 7 64 bit.

    My primary browser is Edge, and secondary is Firefox (which doesn't interfere with the recording studio system).

    I have found that Revo Uninstaller does a good job finding all that leftover files and registry junk left behind by programs' default uninstall options.
