    Through the years, I've tried every one of those listed but Vivaldi, as well as some others.

    I guess for those I won't install or use, GOOGLE Chrome, Safari, and Opera are three. There are others not listed.

    Currently, Edge Chrome and Brave are on my laptop. I lean toward using Brave most of the time.

    A lot of World Wide Web is centered around Google services: search engine, Google Ads, Google DNS and products such as Google Chrome. Google also has other products that are accessible by WWW such as Google Maps, GMail, YouTube. Microsoft does not have that dominant position on the World Wide Web, so I am not as afraid of Microsoft as Google there.

    Actually I use Opera and Chrome. Sorry, but I don't like Firefox, and I'm diffident about Edge.

    Well, to say "never" is to put a glass ceiling down but I will prob. "never" install a more "exotic" browser like KMeleon or Avant. Does Amazon make a discrete browser? That too. Yikes! :eek:

    Same here, never is a bit drastic. I would/will use Firefox, Chrome/Chromium, Edge - in that order.

    Of the one's listed I have tried them all other than Vivaldi. I try to avoid Chrome and Edge on principal, the first because I don't trust Google when it comes to privacy and the second because Microsoft software / UI design lately tends to have some weirdness to it that is just off-putting to me. On my Mac and iPhone, I just use Safari because it's the default, and I actually kinda dig it... and Apple is at least paying lip-service to sticking it to the privacy-abusers. On Windows I bounce between Firefox and Chrome (yeah, I know I said that tried to avoid Chrome, but old habits die hard). The others go unused because I just can't be bothered to go that far out-of-my way.
