    hi
    i don't know if Chromium fork is a right term (for example vivaldi or opera or safari fo they use chrome engine)

    i start to use google chrome , now i'm thinking to switch to Iridium (seems lighter faster and more secure)
    i guess i can trust of Iridium

    looking for Chromium based web browser i found really many browsers , and i guess i will give to Iridium a shot

    may you tell me which browser based on chrome engine do you use and why?

    thanks
    happy new year

    I was using Cent Browser as my primary browser until I recently switched to Firefox. I still use Cent sometimes, as I can't get the Page Monitor extension I use, to work in Firefox.

    Cent is one of the very few browsers which can be configured to work the way I want it to, without having to install any extensions. I have managed to get the new Firefox configured to work nearly the same. But, I need to use five add-ons to give me the same functionality that I have as standard with Cent.

    I've always used browsers which offered pretty much every feature I needed a standard and only switched to Firefox because on my system it runs noticeably faster than Cent and other Chromium based browsers.

    I used Maxthon as my default on Windows for many years, I still don't believe the recent FUD about it. It was originally WebKit based. I switched to Maxthon initially to replace Opera (Presto).

    Maxthon was the only browser with all the inbuilt functions and customisation I needed to replace Opera, and Maxthon is blisteringly fast.

    Recent releases have been a tad buggy though and I now have Vivaldi as my default in Windows as it is less buggy and has the functionality and customisation I require.

    My favourite browser is Slimjet - very fast, quite customisable and has it's own built in Adblocker.

    I'm using Chrome but I've had some serious thoughts about switching to Brave.

    Sleipnir was nice last I used it.

    I'm using Brave, aside the lack of extensions, it is quite neat. a keeper for me.
