    I use Qihoo's Chrome based 360 Extreme Explorer as my main browser. For watching YouTube videos, I use Edge. I find that with other browsers, I get lag when I page up and down through the videos listed on the the main page of YouTube. With Chrome, it's instant (I have disabled smooth scrolling in Windows).

    I was using Baidu Browser for a couple of months for YouTube, as extensions stopped working in Edge. However, I just found this solution, and now Adguard is working again in Edge, so I've ditched Baidu Browser.

    In term of security, Chromium-based browsers , own them all. Now about design and customization, all depend the user's taste. I avoid fancy-look bloated featured browsers so i use chrome.

    Cyberfox is a great browser, which I use frequently. However, the developer, in a recent article, posted that he no longer has the time to keep it up to date, and so it's time to move on

    Internet Explorer 11 Kind of user unfriendly with paltry add-on choices. But fast, spare in design and dependable.

    I have really come to appreciate Microsoft Edge's sheer speed and sleek look, but until they implement better extension support and more choices, Google Chrome will still hold number 1 for me.

    Still Firefox for me. I can see no reason to change from a browser that has served me well for over a decade. Far more privacy orientated than Chrome and has a great ad-free reading mode which I find very helpful. Plus the fact that there are all the extensions that you might need - plus many more that you probably don't!

    Sadly enough I still use my Firefox + Opera 12 combo. Both browsers are outdated, so I'm waiting for the new Firefox. Vivaldi still isn't good enough.

    At this moment in time I'd go for Opera on Windows and Chrome on Linux (Ubuntu). Pale Moon and Vivaldi are close seconds.

    Vivaldi because I can customize it the way I want, a couple of micro seconds slower in loading pages compared to fast browsers like Brave, but well worth it for me.

    Yandex, last year they have added dnscrypt with selectable servers and protected mode for banking, looking forward to this year. But auto-updating still does not work.

    Google Chrome.
    For enhanced security, several flags (chrome://flags) are enabled, unneeded features are disabled.
    Some command line flags are being used for starting chrome, and also some group-policy settings are set.

    For example with Policy Definitions it is possible to blacklist and whitelist extensions (ExtensionInstallBlacklist / ExtensionInstallWhitelist), and a lot more can be done.
    All enabled/disabled settings in the group policy are enforced for all Chrome browsers (installed or portable) on the system, and the user can't change these setting within the browser.
    They can be seen via chrome://policy
