Used Opera for ages but they changed to a tablet friendly approach which I hated.  Eventually switched to Firefox but it's irratating me more an more.  I may give Vivaldi a go.

I primarily use FF, and occasionally Chrome.  I really don't like how FF continues to be a resource hog, but I find it's generally way better at blocking ads and website tracking (thanks in part to extensions I can't get on Chrome). 

I avoid IE and Edge like the virtual plagues they are.

I'm using Bing which is not on your list although it is from the Microsoft blob.

I'm not sure if you're trolling or not but Bing is a search engine, not a broswer. :)

Not trolling - just ignorant.

Security is a big deal with me. That is why I hesitate on uncommon browsers like Opera and Vivaldi. Now you have me worried about Opera. Maybe Vivaldi is worth a go...?

My son-in-law is a dedicated computer aficionado, as well as an engineer at TI. He thinks Brave is the best for security, but he uses Chrome most of the time. His thought is that if you use gmail, Google already owns you
