    I use Chrome because, for now, it works. For a long while, I bounced between Chrome and Firefox. When one wouldn't work for something I did regularly, I switched to the other. I haven't had a need to switch from Chrome in a long time, but I have considered doing so for privacy and performance reasons, as Firefox seems to be the faster of the two now.

    Love the Tor Project, but I'm wayyy to impatient to use it. Glad we have it, props to the Devs and those passionate about it.

    Firefox v66 has been buggy -esp. to hardened user.js configs. Still a great browser, and I encourage you to go back... just saying (guess you posted that a while back). Personally, I'm going w/ Waterfox more.

    I know this is an old thread, but thought it might be worth a bump. Long time Chrome user (like since it was first released) and not fond of Firefox, Vivaldi, Opera, or Edge. I recently start using Brave as a Chrome replacement and I am liking it a ton. If you haven't checked it out, ever or recently, you should. Imported literally everything I had accumulated in Chrome over the years without issue. I am using it on Windows and Linux. In addition to being a better browser by nearly every measurement, it also looks nicer to me than any of the alternatives, including Chrome.

    Brave Build with Tor and it's hides your IP Address from the sites you visit, by routing your browsing through several Tor Servers before it reaches your destination. These connections are encrypted, so your ISP or employer can't see which sites you're visiting either.

    Popular sites often host multiple ads and as many as 70 trackers per site. Worse, most leading ad blockers still allow trackers through to profile your location, behavior and other browsing activity.so it's run faster than other regular internet browser.

    "it's hides your IP Address from the sites you visit, by routing your browsing through several Tor Servers before it reaches your destination."

    That part stops me from trying your recommendation as I have really slow DSL here in the boonies.

    I believe FF 70 is way faster than any CHrome builds with uBO installed. Also you can use FF default list to prevent tracking, enable DoH etc..
    Yeah it'll clobber slow speed DSL. I faced this issue when LTE signal is very bad and speed is <1.5Mbps.

    Sorry. I know getting fast broadband in some places is impossible. There are lots of pluses to living in a rural area, but that usually isn't one of them.

    I started forcing myself to use Firefox again about a month ago. Since I generally do not like it very much, Brave was a nice alternative. It has everything I like about Chrome,

    The reason I am looking to move away from Chrome is more the fault of my ISP than Chrome. Their gateway firmware does not allow changing DNS. I got fed up with redirects to their servers. I also do not like targeted ads. I could buy my own cable modem, but I am not interested in spending extra money for stealth. I don't really need the anonymity as much as I want to deny them access as a matter of principle and the satisfaction of spite.
