Any good recommendation of a good replacement for chrome?

 

Firefox, Opera gx, torch, two edge are out. And the 2 IE too. They simply do not cut it.

opera gx uses chrome, but has a nice touch to it
I would recomend it. (I'm using it)

Chrome is the only good replacement for chrome.

Firefox is ok if you don't need as many extensions or customizability or performance.

Yeah, but when I have too many tabs/chrome window open and lost track to what is what in the task bar since it just show it doesnt show the window any more, Guess can use chrome beta/different path installation.

There are chrome extensions for tab management and other stuff that makes it easier to sue with hundreds of tabs open.

Although if you do care about performance you should try to use bookmarks instead of leaving tabs permanently open.

Also, is there a better way to import stuff from chrome? Because not all my stuff and log in  cred are imported. And how do I add more saved log in credential? I tdoesnt have an option, at least I didn't find one.

Use bookmark folders, or the built in bookmark manager to organize them.

Do some cleanup.

Or, extensions.

I use brave. Built in ad blocker and is fast. It also upgrades all connections to HTTPS. I've been using it for a little now and no complaints besides ads on the homepage, but those can be disabled in settings.

The question is what do you want?

i think chrome is very good is, and perhaps you can find some chromium browser more suitable for you.

other wise TOR is great, but slow.

DuckDuckGo isn't a browser itself but also is pretty good.

As mentioned above there is Brave, but i hate it.

Yahoo but also something i hate.

and then there is Lycos and AOL :D

there's also Safari if you are sadistic enough to get a Mac

When I have a tons of webpage opens and a launcher(epic or steam) or program open another webpage I often can't find it witout finding it for a while. 

 

I tried Opera, but have some side scrolling problem and torch, basically a chrome clone and can even log in with google account, but it does associate with my protocol as default app and I cant change that. Tor is basically firefox(PDF and publication and scaling really sucks) and I do have VPN(And I am not yet on santa bad naughty list🙃). 

On another note, I am surprise that AOL still have big shinny HQ and buildings around and their name on them.

Try either Chromium or Brave 1.0. Brave is a new privacy focused browser built on the Chromium open source project (not to be confused with Google Chrome). Or you could always old school it and try NetScape Navigator LOL.

I moved from Mozilla's Bloatfox to Vivaldi. It is awesome.

Never knew chromium itself is a browser, though was just the open source/kernel code package. Also will try Vivaldi sometime, have more option the merry er.
