    • Firefox allows far more control over your privacy than does Chrome (or even Chromium on which Chrome is based). Not jut because it doesn't come with Google stuff embedded, but also because it allows complete control over things like webRTC (which can leak info about your IP address, hardware), whereas Chrome/Chromium and related browsers don't have this control. Guest • Nov 2016 • 79 agrees and 10 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Highly customizable, open and libre, care about privacy. Made on non-profit. bumbaMar 2017 • 59 agrees and 9 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Firefox is definitely more secure. Tons of options and customization too. Definitely my #1 browser. christinalewisAug 2017 • 43 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Chrome is closed-source and part of Google's privacy-invading business model, which works by harvesting user data. Firefox is open source, so you can check what it's doing under the good. It's also more configurable (about:config) and its Nov 2017 update made it faster than its competitors. JohnFastmanJul 2018 • 9 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Best alternative. Respects your personal data. jwassenApr 2019 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • More secure, better privacy, very good plugins. ChrisWaygJul 2019 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • A good alternative is something which provides the same or better features and matches the pricing. Firefox ticks both the boxes and is way more privacy conscious. Guest • Jul 2019 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It nice FLOSS browser better than Chrome Guest • Sep 2019 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Firefox is better with privacy, is faster, and, from my experience, doesn't leave me with zero RAM left for the rest of my system! Guest • Sep 2019 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Chrome is intimately tied to Google and is bending the browser specifications in the same way that Microsoft did with Internet Explorer. This will lead to sites that only work with Chrome. deweivrevenSep 2019 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • One of the good alternative to Chrome. But comparing service, Chrome always rule the zone. KiranJoshiJul 2019 • 1 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Plain and simple to use, FAST and I feel safer, privacy-wise. Guest • Aug 2019 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Open source, faster, looks nice. Guest • Jul 2018 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Firefox renders pages just as fast as Chrome, but unlike Chrome, Firefox is open-source and significantly more customizable. It's open source license means that it can be audited to ensure that user data remains private. Kapp96Mar 2019 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Mozilla Firefox is backed by a non-profit organization, whereas Google Chrome is backed by Google, one of the biggest for-profit companies in the world. Guest • Feb 2019 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Firefox is far from perfect (they receive millions in funding from Google every year) but for those of us who don't like our data being sold under our noses, it's much more private and secure. More add-ons (especially ones that Google has blocked like AdNaseum) and the ability to change the code of the browser. If you have a high threat level, however, it's not for you. lazysami00Apr 2019 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • I love the rank checker on firefox. stijnh1Jul 2015 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • However it is open source and the privacy is better, the consumption of RAM is huge, try yourself: open just one tab with Whatsapp Web, and you will see Firefox using 1GB of RAM! sidboyJun 2017 • 13 agrees and 46 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Vivaldi

    A browser for our friends. Fast, feature rich and highly customizable that puts the users first.

    • High compatibility to Chrome, same engine and plugins but much better user experience. Vivaldi is the real Opera. Guest • Apr 2019 • 6 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's highly customizable, to the point where practically everything you do can be altered in the Settings menu -- and that Settings menu can be brought up any number of ways (keyboard shortcut, mouse gesture, command, etc.). Add a community of committed devs, volunteers, and users all interacting around the project and you get a browser that can do most things; those things it can't do will get patched in before you know you wanted them. Guest • May 2019 • 4 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Highly customizable and good looking GUI, it's like chrome but for power users. Based on chromium and thus compatible with most chrome extensions. MetaPixel_Aug 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • You can customize everything so you can control your browser like you want. Just with the mouse or the shortcuts you want. It has everything like a reading mode, bookmarks, etc. but so much more. Philips Hue integration, themes that adapt the color of the current website, a side panel where you can add own websites or manage your downloads, history. Chrome Extensions work, you can sync your settings. It has EVERYTHING LudwigSchindlerAug 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • hugely customisable in the front-end, fast, has many useful features such as tab-stacking that is great if you (like me) often have multiple tabs open!! Guest • Jul 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Much faster than Chrome, more regular updates and feels much more stable and faster overall. Guest • Apr 2018 Disagree   Agree

    • Privacy oriented and HUGE under the hood customizations Guest • Feb 2017 • 5 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Been using several alternatives listed here and have grown to REALLY like Vivaldi. Along with the privacy using the search engine StartPage.com, we have noticed a dramatic decrease in spam as well. We get about 4000 emails a day and it dropped from near 40% to about 10%...

    • Vivaldi and Opera is more functional Guest • Jul 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • The visual GUI is very neat and some handy tools in the sidebar Guest • Mar 2016 • 6 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The Vivaldi Browser (which still has a long ways to go before becoming a full-fledged browser) has many more helpful and integrated features. The first great feature is the customizable interface. Another bonus is its being made from the Chromium project, making all Chrome extensions fully supported.

    • Because it has same functions or better. No tracking. Very useful functions included without plugins like very powerful adblocker, fingerprinting blocked, forced https, TOR capable and more ! Guest • Sep 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • It's really lightweight, both in terms of memory and CPU consumption. In addition, it's based on Chomium so pages render very well and even you can install Chrome plugins. GermnBlandoSep 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • It uses the same engine as Chrome, but is fully free and open-source. It has a built-in adblocker and it makes it much faster than stock Chrome. It doesn't spy on users, does not require to log-in to Google account, karlossss1996May 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • Brave has come a long way since It's Launch. From adding compatibility to chromes google web extension's. To a a sharper overall ui look. It also has a unique feature to earn Bat a digital currency. Based on how Long you watch something online. A total optional bonus. Firefox Used to be my main chick now the tables have turned for the better. zervzApr 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • Browser: very fast, secure, adblocker and 100% privacy. And possible to earn money with relevant advertisements. Give small gifts to publishers and content creators. Save lots of money by browsing without scripts, advertisements, popups, cookietracking etc. remcovanderpluijmApr 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • Its basically the exact same but they treat you like a person with rights, not like a product. What I mean is you have every ad blocked, trackers blocked and more. It's private - more than chrome - too. Guest • Apr 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • It's kinda like Chrome but WAY more private. karaboungalosMay 2017 • 14 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • It's an excellent alternative if you want a browser with implemented adblocker mlemmarkAug 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • Fewer options, Chromium under the hood, built in ad blocker, no risk of installing garbage through the WebStore. Only problem: no user scripts! Guest • Feb 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Brave is an effort to make a Chrome-like experience based on the Chromium code base and remove/block all the spyware Google put in to monitor your online activity. Brave is good, but it's not as good/flexible as Iridium. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 9 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Privacy protections by default like fingerprint and tracker blocking. Even script blocking if desired. Each privacy option is configurable for each page. It's only missing an option to sync or export browsing history and bookmarks (though I can see these features interfere with "perfect" privacy) Guest • Nov 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's good. But Chrome has a lot of extensions. If you're used to use many extension and if you want to continue using those extensions, this is not a good solution for you. Guest • Jul 2017 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • On Linux, this is the best alternative to Google Chrome, especially if your distribution does not support Google Chrome. The same speed, security, and reliability that you can expect from Chrome, but without Flash player and other proprietary bits. jxewingJul 2018 • 2 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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 • 5 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree

It comes with the added bonus of being far more privacy-oriented than either Chrome or Firefox. TerrifiedTyphlosionMay 2019 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

Total disregard for human dignty and freedom. The developers are way too curious about you as a person. Curious about what you do, where you want to go, who you talk to, who you may want to marry, who you want to hand over your last will and testament to.

On the technical side, it is mainly an app platform, thousands of low quality apps which bring nothing new to the table.

Being the most used browser means nothing. Thanks to samsung, who made the android OS popular by building cheap Iphone-look alike toys, this browser managed to dominate the market.

If you want speed, try edge. If you want security and privacy, try Internet explorer (11.0.47). If you want the whole package, try Mozilla Quantom (aka Firefox 57+, which will be available within a week)

Are you serious about Internet Explorer more secure and private than chrome?
I am not defending chrome, my favorite browser is Firefox, I am just checking you are serious about that.

@OlaMohammad, one of those two things are true, the privacy part. I'm sure IE doesn't save a log of websites you visit to remember your zoom preferences lol (These don't get deleted when you clear browsing data).

Very good but...

It is great in term of speed and stability but questionable when it comes to privacy

Chrome is the best browser i've ever used, light, fast, secure. Very easy to sync and mange my bookmarks across my devices. Also like to use gmail to deal with my emails.

I'm not sure about the light part though. The syncing is very useful, but other browsers like Firefox also offer similar features.

Surprisingly slow to load certain webpages

I've recently noticed that Chrome loads large webpages much slower than Safari in Mac OS X. While the difference isn't large enough to notice in most day-to-day browsing, Chrome tends to stutter and lag out on my Hackintosh when it attempts to load extremely large pages, such as long Wikipedia articles or forum threads.

Meanwhile, Safari can load anything pretty much instantaneously. I love Chrome (and there's no chance that I'm giving up all of its extra features for Safari), but this discrepancy in loading times is rather puzzling to me.

I like this browser. I always use it. The only thing is that he eats a lot of RAM. So, if you have a weak computer - it can hang.

Espectacular navegador es perfecto por su sincronización con toda la plataforma de google

Te mantiene dentro del ecosistema de Google, una compañia malvada (lol).

Hablando en serio, Google ya es lo suficientemente presente en la web.

La web no es de Google, y nunca debe ser de él.

Nice to have and good to be installed as a backup browser BUT ...

But in 2015 it begin to eat all my notebook RAM.

Vulnerable to Unicode text phishing scam

Vivaldi, although based on Chrome, is not vulnerable like Chrome is to the Unicode text phishing scam.
