I use Citrio browser which is very similar to Chrome. But you can download videos with it and you can do it faster than with Chrome or Firefox, for example. And it looks cute anyway

I just checked into that one and it seems to be well liked by it's users. I'll have to check into trying it myself. Thanks for sharing that one.

Mainly I use Google Chrome as I have a Chromebook and that is the only browser that I can use on it. So I tend to use on my regular laptop as well.

Then I read about the new Maxthon Cloud Browser, downloaded it, and it has performed very well for me so far. It's fast and it's light.

I actually tried Maxthon CB (it's still on my laptop) and worked well with very little crashes but the load times to load pages was very noticeable. Thats the only reason I stopped using that one. Since switching to Comodo Dragon I have had no problem and my page load times are faster then any other browser I have tried. Firefox is close in speed tests to Comodo I have done but I still got a crash or 2 at the worst times (updating my website).

I use Pale Moon, a Firefox variant. It looks like Firefox used to look before they "improved" it.

Maxthon is ugly/overbloated garbage...... Most everything that was awesome about MyIE is gone........

I have the last version of MyIE2 (Before being renamed to MAXTHON) and its the BEST IE add-on I have ever had and I love it!!!

I mostly use Chrome with the Privacy Badger, Disconnect, HTTPS Everywhere, and Adblock extensions.

Who knows what personal data Google is trying to collect from Chrome, so I figure I'm better safe than sorry. And Chrome is *much* faster when all the extra http requests and ads aren't loading.

Firefox has been good to me, much better than IE. See no reason to switch.
