    • It's one of the best browsers in terms of privacy. It routes your traffic over around 3-5 tor-points before it reaches the intended server. So your IP and other browser information is not directly visible to anyone. termoyerDec 2018 • 13 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    Chromium is the open-source browser project from which Google Chrome takes its source.

    • It doesn't have a proper installer for Windows. It's very hard to install it compared to Google Chrome. On the other hand, on Linux platform both are easy to install. williamneisAug 2018 • 26 agrees and 13 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    Waterfox is a high performance browser based on the Mozilla platform. Made specifically for 64-bit systems, Waterfox has one thing in mind: speed.

    • 64 bit for Windows 10 Pro. Fast, lots of extensions, tabs, themes, stable... Guest • Nov 2016 • 6 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Compared to Firefox (from where it was forked on), Waterfox looks pretty dated and some extensions refuses to be installed due to this -- depending on what extension you want, you may have troubles. Guest • Feb 2020 • 7 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is private and secure, open source and it doesn't have telemetry data collection Guest • Sep 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • If you haven't left Google Chrome because you think other browsers can't compete with its speed (which, in my experience, hasn't been completely true), try Waterfox out. It comes with the added bonus of being far more privacy-oriented than either Chrome or Firefox. TerrifiedTyphlosionMay 2019 • 6 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Microsoft Edge

    Microsoft's Chromium based browser, rebuilt for performance, compatibility and security.

    • If you want to use a browser's Incognito mode (called Private Browsing in Firefox and Safari), you don't want where you go to be recorded in files stored on your computer. Microsoft Edge DOES store info about where you've been, even if you've been there using its InPrivate mode. (http://betanews.com/2016/01/30/stop-using-microsoft-edges-inprivate-mode-if-you-value-your-privacy/). Switch to an open source browser. There are plenty of good ones.

    • For Windows there is only a ZIP file, where's the exe file? Also, I have found no way to update it. From where would you download the extensions since the Chrome Web Store is broken? Proprietary codecs and DRM are also other problems in this browser. Guest • Feb 2020 • 5 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Coolest Chrome-based browser out there. SilbermannJul 2019 • 5 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Chrome fans will do well to realise that Chrome is proprietary and contains a lot of code designed to spy on what you do online, correlate this with the rest of your Google account data and use it to make money. Iridium, on the other hand, takes the Chromium codebase and specifically removes privacy-invading parts. Unlike Chrome, Iridium is open source, so you can check the code yourself, if you wish. Some functionality is reduced (e.g. Flash) but in that case try Vivaldi. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 10 agrees and 10 disagrees Disagree   Agree
