  • *Meanwhile me on edge*

  • I use Microsoft edge

  • Microsoft edge gang wya?

  • i changed the browser from google chrome to microsoft edge in 2020

  • firefox is amazing, but if you have a crap laptop and an average internet connection of 3Mbps, it becomes crapp and sites dont load and it sometimes freezes, i didnt have any of these problems on google chrome so that is why i use it

  • Yo whazzup *m o b i l e u s e r s .*

  • I don't use chrome for one reason... RAM

  • Firefox ftw

  • Opera GX is where it’s at tbh

  • First time i see vivaldi being mentioned maked my day

  • i use Firefox.

  • What about Netscape? It’s my favourite browser

  • I use it because of g suite integration plus I have 32 gigs of ram so memory hogging is fine

  • When you get an ad with Linus in it (Pulseway) on a Tech Quickie Video Pog.

  • firefox is slow as shit and the ui is ugly, but still better than most copy paste chromium-based browsers out there. but I will still stick to chrome.

  • Me in the corner of the room using Ecosia: (;′⌒`) I also used Firefox and *Internet Explorer* for a long time, I had Google Chrome for some years but quit it

  • I use the chromium edge because it's more secure because it's less popular.

  • I use edge.

  • It's funny how chrome has been running for years and Google never added support for Chrome web store on Android version, Firefox, Yandex and opera has ACTUAL support for web extensions on mobile versions.

  • I got a Venom 2 trailer before this video and now I am just in a good mood. (Venom is my all time favorite movie. The one with the symbiote, not the snakes.)

  • And its default Google search engine is just good and non-abusable

  • Im using edge

  • Brave gang where yall at?

  • Saying hello to Opera gx!

  • I dont

  • People dont want to use internet explorer Right now chrome eats a fuq ton of ram

  • i never use chrome.. every software that offers chrome inside i decline, the browser is garbage and the layout of it is primitive! firefox rules

  • 0:33 does he say "origgins"?

  • Because Edge is temporary Chrome is eternal

    • chrome is temporary any other browser is eternal


  • Chrome is the best it doesn't lag or crashes (on my pc)

  • Me and my homies only use brave

  • Another Firefox user here ! Firefox is still the best one in many ways. You forgot to mention how Google put pressure on users to force them to switch to chrome. They have done it many times in different ways. I have used Chrome, IE, Edge, Opera, Vivaldi, Brave and Pale Moon and switched back to firefox: speed and stability are with the fox. And brave is trash btw.

  • The internet: Are you two friends? Bing: Yes Chrome: No

  • where my edge homies?

  • Just saying hello to my Brave friends!

  • opera gx gang wya

    • opera GX is fucking sick

  • Where is the Vivaldi army?

  • Firefox gang, but Tor for anything questionable.

  • Firefox +1 have used it from before 1.0 on Windows 95, when early versions was with magazines.

  • Is it safe to install Chrome in Mac?

  • brave is worst

  • I use opera gx browser. It's better than chrome, ad-blocker, vpn, gaming looks

  • I don't like chrome. It really tortures my CPU and I can't run it with Minecraft and discord simultaneously.

  • Been using Firefox since it replaced Netscape. I don't care what the hipsters say lol. Chrome runs to slow for me

  • Never was a fan of Chrome. When it first came out a friend who played a game. Well Chrome killed it. Uninstalled it and made explorer the default and Ta Da her game started working again. As far as I'm concerned google can go suck manure directly from the source.

  • I did switch to FireFox once....but the UI of Chrome feels wayyyyy smoother then that of FireFox. RAM was indeed an issue, hence I now use Brave. Brave is made upon Chromium, so it has Almost all of chrome features..... and it is not that much of memory hog. :D

  • Looks like not a lot of people here know Yandex browser. Which is good for you, actually...

  • Idk, i been using the built-in edge for months now, and i like it

  • Its alonnnnnngggg time I used google chrome or google browser not a hater I just don't like them.

  • Here I'm who use every browser there is

  • Im using Safari because uses less ram, but im hating it, before that i used Opera, but it has becomes a mess, enabling features automatically after you disable them because they want you to use it, you disable again and days later is enable again... and on top of this, is crashing a lot in recent versions.

  • I'm using edge and brave sometimes

  • I use Brave. A browser that is good for privacy, and also has all the chrome extenstions

  • I use Edge

  • From a developer perspective. Chrome has made debugging so much easier and has since become the browser of choice when working on projects. So naturally more and more sites are becoming more stable in Chrome than in other browsers

  • I use firefox

  • People who say “I don’t use chrome because it tracks me” are either ignorant, or contradictory

  • I use opera GX, it uses 12mb/s instead of 345kb/s and it has Ram and Cpu limiter which i love

    • opera GX is fucking sick

  • I'll be honest, I might be one of the few oddjobs out there using edge. But really, it just works better than firefox imo. And yes I'm kinda avoiding chrome just because. I don't know, some more keenly eyed experts might tell me that chrome is great/terrible, to me it's just another browser but right now, edge seems to be faster on my pc. And I use brave on my phone for the same reason . Sure, privacy is important but at this point... Facebook could clone me from the ground up so little do I care if google can too.

  • easy. people are sheep

  • imo i'd say the main reason chrome got to were it is today was it's viral strategy ... god on how many machines did i find it installed after user installed an antivirus update or whatever ... borderline legal (pretty much the same technique virus you get by mails use to spread ...)

  • me who uses *microsoft edge* cuz I'm not picky.

  • I use Vivaldi and Firefox and absolutely love both for the same reason, vertical tab stacking. Firefox has better support with Tree Style Tab but Vivaldi's window groups / tab stacks works well enough.

  • I'm not using Chrome, you idiot! I'm using Firefox Beta.

  • Me who uses Firefox: well yes, but actually no

  • i was using firefox but it was little bit laggy even with more than 60 fps, i switch to chrome and its smooth

  • 3:06 >using FLoC as an example of working towards internet privacy To the trash it goes!

  • I'd love to see a real Doge browser

  • So, I use Brave.

  • Just wanna say hi from the world of opera gx

  • I member when chrome came out

  • I recently just switched off chrome for firefox and I somewhat “hardened” it. My targeted ads make no freaking sense anymore, and I’m honestly okay with that.

  • Firefox power-user for life, running ESR to avoid the always changing browsers with constant UI changes.

  • "Everyone uses chrome" Literally Everyone in the comments : I use Firefox

  • Everybody talking about their different browsers that are better than Chrome I'm just sitting over here getting paid to use brave browser in crypto....... I mean you guys can keep using the internet that takes your data and doesn't give you anything for it...... I prefer to get stabbed in the heart instead of the back... At least brave browser has the balls to tell me they're taking my data and using it specifically and that I'm getting paid for the kickbacks

  • I use firefox on pc and brave on android. No browser trumps brave on android.... Coz nothing trumps chromium on android.

  • I use edge on pc, and samsung internet on my galaxy devices. Sure it's technically chrome but f*** chrome

  • I mean, internet explorer worked great back in Windows XP/7 days. Its so slow these days.

  • The maingear turbo they are using!! Its dope

  • wer brave fanboys

  • I use Firefox, my daughter uses Chrome ... on the same computer. *I* get *my* CS-tv channel, *she* gets *hers* ... works for us.

  • 🦊

  • Hmm all people from the comments use firefox, thats speak alot how smart is the lmg community ^^

  • For me, Chrome got me through the ad campaign. And the customization of themes. That time the browser popped out of a video on CS-tv is still one of the most impressive ads I've seen.

  • Any samsung internet fan here?

  • Safari if possible and firefox if not

  • I am happy with my Opera

  • Chrome is literally spyware.

  • I love how the comments just people says i use firefox like me 🤣

  • Vivaldi.

  • I recently switched to firefox

  • I use firefox lol

  • Any safari users? No? Just me? Ok…

  • me who uses Tor for almost everything: ummmm :|

  • I use brave UwU

  • I use Opera

  • I purely use Brave browser for the ability to say No thanks to ads, Cookies and trackers. Saves time browsing

  • I like Brave and Firefox. Chrome sucks.

  • Google breaks standards all the time. They make their web apps etc. break on other browsers by intention.
