    Mozilla has incredible features, the new 'Firefox Quantum' layout is easy to use and clean to look at. Very customisable, and good privacy control.

    Like Chrome it brings compromises in terms of platform specific user experience due to its cross platform nature. However I consider it the best alternative. Even though the developer tools did not scale well considering performance. They become unresponsive too fast with large documents and data loads.

    It's nice with a system that can pay websites AND block ads.

    Paying the websites you visit is better than prostituting yourself to advertisement. Way better, in fact internet became very disrespectful before ad-blockers went viral.
