What is your favourite browser and why

Just my 2 cents. DuckDuckGo is a browser on my android phone…

Well @TrekJunky thanks for that bit of information I don’t have a mobile phone so it could be in the list after all.

i didn’t realize it was considered a browser on android even though i have it and use it. mostly i just use it for searches like i used to use the google widget. it didn’t click for me until i was making the list that it can save bookmarks and do all of the other things browsers do. a helpful addition i think :slight_smile:

similarly, before this thread i had never heard of falkon. definitely some good suggestions for alternatives for someone who has used the same browser for quite some time.

It is a search engine, you can use in Google Chrome or Chromium, as well, if you want to see windies get it nickers in a twist, enable in their edge browser.

Ups…
Was my fault
I’m testing all browsers of the poll and didn’t found DuckDuckGo browser for Win or Linux, only a search engine

@ElectricDandySlider
Sorry for the trouble caused
I didn’t search other OSs

Okay I have checked thanks to @TrekJunky and yes it is a browser as this confirms ; https://download.cnet.com/DuckDuckGo-Privacy-Browser/3000-20432_4-77350971.html . That being said I think we can all agree that it should be on the list as @cordx put there when he added the poll.

I have recently switched to using Firefox (from Chrome) and DuckDuckGo (from Google). The confusion I am seeing here is that DuckDuckGo has a “Browser Privacy Extension,” not a separate “browser.” It is available for Firefox, however I have checked Chrome and it is not available for it.

I cannot say if Firefox is my favorite browser just yet, but I am very interested in getting away from corporate espionage on my web activities. Companies like Google need to be taught that when they lie they lose, so I’m in the process of ditching them completely.

I see. I avoid browsing on my phone at all costs. The screen is too small and I am too old.

Cheers!

I have used Firefox by many time, more precise Firefox Quantum.
However i have switched FF because that not working with Html 5 videos in Youtube
by some strange reason. ( Firefox have support for html 5 ) but no works in YT.
Because it i have switched for Yandex Browser, despite some ADS in russian Lang.
this is a great browser, and i am happy with his.:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
