Chromium, because it is reasonably fast and syncs well across all my devices.

Hi Chrissy. Chromium would easily be my 2nd favorite. :)

My favourite would be a browser that uses system resources efficiently, doesn't interfere with what I do, works on older hardware, is responsive, is not designed like a magnet for advertisements, and finally and is intelligently designed to render pages legibly when script is disabled.

So far firefox has proven to be quite useful and rarely presents issues though chromium is faster (even though it is a battery drainer) and I like the idea of linking my email account to the browser itself is atractive.

But, fairy tales are on a second floor ;-)

Only FF. Till last year had also a chromium for checking gmail, but this task is better isolated with an old ginger droid.

I have to admit Firefox-esr is growing on me, after I calmed down and figured out a few things.

What I like:
Pin Tabs
Dbl Click Star Bookmark Options
Bookmark Tags
Add to Searchbar Options
Good Customizizzation

Downside:
Too Much Crap(TMC) like pocket,sync,share.. they should be addons
Preferences is clunky, stripped out too many options, no 'save' button is confusing
about:config is worse than windows registry, needs subsections, tooltips to what each setting does
Search for text when I start typing needs a hotkey listed on the find results
Bookmarks Library is still clunky like the old Netscape/IceApe, selective import from html would be nice
I now have six themes to choose from, but only two toolbars, no statusbar, wtf?

Good/Bad:
Page Permissions are good, but no option to allow javascript per site?

Statusbar is one of the first things I put back in a new install.

You are right, it is now a fairytale. However, there were times, two or three years ago, when this was reality. :wink:

I also occasionally use Firefox, but it sometimes seems slower and isn't available to sync on all my devices - iOS, BB10 etc

I had never heard of Maxthon, though it seems they have 32 and 64-bit deb packages, but certainly won't test it after this revelation.

It's probably no worse than a Microsoft browser, though.

I'm mostly using the Slimjet variant of Chromium, because of its default included goodies, but Firefox comes in a close second.

Debatable as they don't take Debian Stable seriously. In wheezy, chromium hit end-of-life/no security support in January 2015 months before jessie went stable. You either had to move from stable (wheezy) to testing (jessie) before it was ready; download and use Google's version of Chrome; or move to another browser.

With wheezy at EOL April 2016, those of us who 1) only use stable, and 2) use the year overlap between stable and oldstable to transition systems were hung out to dry.

So Firefox it is.

That is useful info. And it makes a strong case for staying with Firefox if one uses Stable.

I've throw away download manager softwares away because of turbocharged download manager is damn fast enough.

Hi cpoakes.

I hope the same thing doesn't happen with Jessie. :o
