Thank you Voyagerfan99 for creating the new thread, I chose Chrome.

What I am interested to see is about a year back or two I read that Chrome is officially the most widely used web browser in the world, I am curious if we will see this on the forum.

Palemoon runs a bit better than Firefox on Windows and has some features not available in Firefox anymore.

I use Chrome, better performance than even Palemoon in my experience, better sync, and the UI is beautiful.

John thank you for closing the other thread and making this one a sticky. Why do you chose Pale Moon, is there a feature that separates it from the rest?
I've really liked Pale Moon ever since I started using it for a few reasons.

1. It saves my password for moderator control panel and for when I need to do moderating within the forum so I don't have to reenter it each every time, IE wouldn't save it for some reason.

2. It's definately a lot faster than firefox as Lucas said. I tried firefox when I was wanting to change browsers and firefox was just too slow opening and loading home page while pale moon was almost instantly.

3. I really don't like the new versions of IE and IE 8 was just having way too many issues for me to continue using it.

Oops, almost forgot one.

4. I freaking hate chrome lol

I don't know yet lol. I use Chrome, but Chrome for Android Tablet sucks because of one tiny thing, the tabs have a tiny x that's quite hard to click, the iPad one has good buttons so why doesn't this one? And Opera is quite nice (for Android tablets) but feels like it's still in beta. Quite slow TBH. Not loading pages but switching tabs etc. Opera Classic is good but feels like it wasn't designed for tablets. Also I am talking about Android tablets because that's what influences my decision for desktop.

Makes sense, I use chrome just because the sync is easier then FF and is flawless across my mobile platforms, Chromebook and Linux boxes across my house.

John I see your point, I don't care for FF in Windows. For me I always have stability problems with FF and it always crashes, so I might give Pale Moon a go the next time I get a Windows Machine. Though I well say other then the sync, I have had great luck with FF on Linux, seems just as fast and reliable as Chrome but I still use Chrome cause of the cross platform sync.

I have a Nexus 7 2013 and I haven't had any issues closing tabs in Chrome.

I have been using it for 4 years now. Ha I beat you! :p
Well before I permanently switched to Chrome I was using Opera for about a year or two and before that IE8. IE8 was the last version of IE which I used as my default browser. I remember it getting so slow so in the end I just got Opera and that was great but I switched to Chrome because the newer releases of Opera kept crashing for me.

I remember downloading Chrome when it first came out a long time ago but I didn't use it as my default browser haha.

I use to run Opera back when I first started using Linux, I remember liking it just cause it seemed to have more features then any other browser and remember watching other browser adopt some of Opera features. Haven't used Opera since 2009 though, might give it a download to see how it has changed.
