    I've used it, but the lack of an adblocker is a deal breaker for me. Also, I've used Edge and I've started to really like it.

    I've always been a Firefox guy, but I love the Chromium-based Kiwi browser for Android, which has built-in ad blocking and runs much faster than any Quantum browser on my low-spec Android devices.

    the pity is that you can not install any cert eg adguard nor install any extension. currently v2 is a pure browser with few defending features but compared with Fennec (regular firefox for android) it is very crippled, whether the new gecko driver inside or not.

    if mozilla wont have this fixed when fennec run out of support it will kill firefox for android. either i will run a perpetual outdated browser and pout me to risk, or i will switch browser, i dont have problems to sync chromium (chrome is disabled here).
