Good Advice! Do not use outdated browser versions!

It's nice to see Chromium going toe-to-toe with Chrome. :D

What is your favorite browser?

Whichever current mainstream selection is presently giving me the fewest headaches.

(No, I did not vote. It's like trying to pick between Billary and the Great Orange One.)

It's interesting how they all jockey for position. They take turns at being better. This is a case where brand loyalty is foolish.

You mean Edge? IE is dead, even for Microsoft.
But nothing wrong with Edge, it uses hardware accel nicely and it's fast. The most pleasant scrolling is on Edge, IMO.

It's buggy as ****, crashes all the time and can't render for shit but yeah, apart from that it's great :mrgreen:

EDIT: to give a concrete example: my grand-daughter's school homework website fails to load in Win10/Edge but works just fine with Debian/Firefox.
