what browsers y'all use?

Recommended Posts

Vivaldi.

Has a ton of cool features like tab stacking, opening multiple websites in the same window so you can for example watch YT video and browse LTT at the same time, Picture in Picture for videos so you can extract the video window and have it overlayed even over a game, etc...

Things I need help with: *new* What can Facebook do to me? Privacy Inquiries

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Firefox mainly, but all main browsers too, but that's for work. Primarily use Firefox Nightly, regular Firefox only when there is something really fucked with Nightly.

Vivaldi. I can't live without mouse gestures and side panels bookmarks/notes/everything else.

Some extensions can emulate these in other browsers, but it's not the same, it bugs out sometimes and uses up more resources than if it's baked in.

 

It's still a bit bugged here and there, especially with things related to videos on Reddit...

But it could also be a bad AMD driver that will never be fixed due to how old my card is (since me and some others with the same/similar GPU also have issues with Netflix, Vivaldi and GPU acceleration).

 

Also use Vivaldi on Android. Built-in adblocker and can change the blocklists. But, again, sometimes it crash.

Chrome because it works far better than any other browser I've ever tried, integrates well with my Google account, and because I'm not a hipster or privacy freak.

I'm currently using Chrome, works nicely with the Google integration. I don't see the point of using other Chromium derivatives. Firefox is way too slow and neglected on macOS.

Chrome never worked  on my 2010 MacBook so I was primarily using Firefox. But I gotta agree chromium does better job on Mac machines. On Windows machines I tested and Firefox js waaaay faster

Chrome on everything. School requires a ton of Google sh*t, and their google suite is great, along with the fact I don’t care that much about my privacy.
