Best Browser for general use in 2018 ?
Written by: Andrej997 - 10:45 Oct-15-2018

So after 7+ years of using only Google Chrome i stared to see its flaws , thus i decided to switch to another one. Anyway let me explain my problem a little bit , so recently i went to my friends house where there he uses both chrome and firefox at the same time , and while we were looking at the same site ( comparing something ) the firefox site was so smooth i was left shocked , i thought it was maybe that one site so after i got home instead of using firefox i started to use Edge , the result , any site i opened in Edge was smoother than chrome by a large margin , even GD was fast with loading and no sudden stops or hiccups.

That made me realize that i was only using chrome because all of my accounts are synced together and convenient for me , but for everyday use after just using 10min another browser i had enough of it so my question is simple.

What browser is smooth for daily use and for playing some facebook games ( dont judge me i have needs :) also what browser do you use ?

I need it to be fast , responsive and to have the option for adblock and support for Flash player since i have constant problems with that on chrome

What browser do you recommend me to use ? 2 votes

I use Firefox Nightly and i'm loving it.


Screw Chrome and its sluggish system. It feels bloated. And ever since version 69, whenever you edit something in chrome:flags it stops working after awhile. Well for me at least. And no i'm not going to use the browser and not look into the hidden settings. That's a dumb thing to suggest.

Using the Brave browser now.
It's decent and does what I need it most of the time + it's getting better every day. Still wondering how to get the Brave Payments will support GD.
They site still isn't ok-ed by the browser for some reason.


More things to figure out for another day.

Will do a test run of those browsers that were recommended to me , as well as your brave browser , also the last option is nothing but an empty ; character

I use Chrome most, because of account-sync,
I also have Vivaldi, Brave, Firefox, Opera and Safari installed because often pages don't behave the way I need :D

I hear that.
I still use Opera & Firefox because Brave is still not 100% ready.

Vivaldi has a lot of customization options compared to most browsers, but there is a lot to tinker around before you get it to work just how you like it.

Since I've switched from Mozilla to Chrome I haven't though of switching to another browser. Is Chrome really that slow?

Honestly chrome and firefox are both great, ive had some sites not work on either and need to use edge. Netflix 1080p/4k only works on Edge as well if that's your thing.
