    Used to use Opera until they became just another Chrome clone. Dabbled with Palemoon but it's been just Firefox for the last year or so. Interested in the responses in this thread.

    Giving vivaldi a go this evening. Sick of Firefox not allowing certificate over rides and blocking older extensions. Used to be nice to control your own browser, they can take a hike.

    I've moved onto almost exclusively Vivaldi these days. It has the customization that I miss from firefox, its updated regularly enough with features that are actually useful and because it accepts chrome extensions so it can further be customized like crazy. It's pretty fantastic.

    It was a little messy at launch so I took a few months away, but since it got cloud account support it's been my main browser. It also has small things that I just really find amusing, such as telling you exactly how big each website is in the browser bar whenever you visit them. I LOVE the tab customization especially, as I prefer vertical tab lists over ones horizontal ones.

    I like Vivaldi as well it seems to allow some better compatibility with certain webpages where Opera stumbles.
    There is another project where the original folks from Opera made another browser as well.

    But my main is still Opera

    I sometimes use a portable version of K-Meleon but not very often.

    Currently trying the Microsoft Edge Chromium Edition. Quite impressed to be honest. It is basically Chrome with a IE/Edge skin on it.
