I use different browsers for different purposes Bob.
  • Firefox - for the 15 or so tabs that I keep open all the time
  • Chrome - as my default browser, with all data deleted every time I close it
  • Edge - for sites that won't work with the MANY different privacy and security extensions that I have installed on Firefox and Chrome

Similar to Stuart, Bob, I can’t really say any one in particular, as I often use what seems best.... or works ..._

_... I do use a lot of outdated stuff which means that often determines which ever browser still works for whatever I am doing.
In that respect, for many years Google Chrome was my most used, but that has gone over to Firefox in the last year or so.
(But I also saved me and some others a small fortune by getting some old XP notebooks for the cost of the postage which had an old Internet Explorer on it, which proved to be the only reliable way to control some Modem/ Router things. That despite the fact that I could do next to nothing else using the Internat Explorer on those Notebooks, and the fact that Internet Explorer is the thing I otherwise find the most increasingly annoyingly difficult to get things working consistently. ( Maybe that is why so many Banks still use it a lot, as well as using a lot of out of date computer stuff, Lol, - a good security feature when its not so easy to figure out how to get the stuff working as it was originally intended ) )

I have switched back to Firefox from Vivaldi just a fortnight ago.
Some toll-free support sites, Hostgator is one, insist that I run Chrome or Edge in order to make use of their real-time shared screen application.
I suspect that some applications (Selenium is one) either work best with, or work only with, a few select browsers such as Chrome, Edge and, hah hah, Internet Explorer.
Cheers, Chris

I should have asked which browser you use most as I too use different browsers as needs demand.

With that change, please vote with 'most used' in mind.

I can't change my vote now. We ought to have a poll asking, from those who have conducted polls, how many have wished to change the question after the comments started pouring in.

I suspect that I should have voted Chrome, because, I think, Vivaldi is just a front for a Chrome engine.

I can't say which I use most either. I use both Firefox and Chrome heavily.

I don't really use my Windows PC that much anyway. I tend to do browsing when I have time to fill while out and about.

So I voted FireFox, but it was a close thing with Google Chrome

I use Pale Moon almost exclusively with Vivaldi as a back-up. I don't have full-fat Chrome on my PC.
