Opera has the last laugh on all the rest... it's what about half of all internet-capable phones use as their embedded browser. That's their very profitable paid market, which is why Opera for the desktop became free a few years ago (not worth the bother of chasing around a tiny market on the desktop).

Most of the time, I use Firefox. Chrome is my second choice. I only use IE for Windows updates.

Comodo Dragon. Just as fast as Chrome.
Like Chrome, based on Chromium, but "does not implement Chrome's user tracking and some other potentially privacy-compromising features, and provides additional security measures, such as indicating the authenticity and relative strength of a website's SSL certificate."

side note: After being on Firefix since it started, I'm avoiding it altogether now. I've read in some forums that its difficult to un-install the newer versions.

I have been using Comodo Dragon as 2ndary browser since you recommended it here a couple of years ago. It is OK, and I like the no tracking aspect.

And, I just never did like Firefox, so I have it, and also IceDragon too, so I can fool around with it.
But, I will use IE as my primary browser before going over to Mozilla.

This is a serious concern if you have other security loopholes. Such as no ssd/hdd encryption or a trojan.
