I used Opera for a couple of years and I really liked it. But there seems to be a reason to not use any of the bigger browsers. Chrome is Google and they’re evil. Firefox is run by a bunch of SJWs. Opera is owned by some shady Chinese company. Edge just kind of sucks. Right now I’ve settled on Firefox (since it’s open source) with some security addons going. But overall I still think Opera is a mostly better browser.

Exactly same here.


Right now i used ublock origin and ghostery with a fullhouse VPN.

*check Firefox' Privacy settings. There's some things there you need to disable.

I used Opera way back in the past, sort of curious how it has changed. But I've been really happy with Edge. Once IE was plainly garbage, I tried Opera, Chrome, and stayed with Firefox. But as of Windows 10 I've been using Edge and I really like the way it looks visually, the customization it allows, the way bookmarks work, and there are a growing number of addons as well.

I can't stand Chrome, because I think it looks generic and boring, and because I avoid Google as much as possible. Can't avoid them 100% (android phone, youtube), but I try as much as I can.
So I use Edge with Firefox as an alternate. Might have to see how Opera is doing.

I also use Bing because they basically pay you to use it. I just cashed in 70k or so in rewards points and got a $55 Xbox gift card and $10 Amazon card. You get rewards point for every search, and they have little 3-4 question quizzes that pay you as well. Now I've grown to prefer it and I like to see what the picture of the day will be.


So BF5 or Darksiders 3 will be free courtesy of Bing.

Brave is good but it feels just clunky enough that I don’t like using it as my daily browser. It’s definitely coming along though.

I'm trying it out now. Not bad! Strange, when I went to change the theme to a dark one, it thought I was using chrome. Even asked me to confirm that I wanted to
"add it to chrome?"

But so far Brave seems good, and it has some kind of rewards thing where I apparently have earned $6 already from...something.
