    Opera. The old version (12.16).

    Tabs sidebar on the left/right side is a god send on any wide screen.
    Manage Site Preferences is also great : every site can be customized from CSS style, javascript, plugins, masking as another browser, etc.. all from within the site's page (right click).
    The cache system is IMHO better than in any other browser. And I rely too much on bookmarks to switch to the new version of Opera (speed dial is nice, but not adapted when you have too many bookmarks with folders)

    All this can be gotten from any major browser : Block cookies, Do Not Track, Clear Cache/Cookies on exit. You only have to browse the settings. I'd rather rely on a reputable browser if concerned about security.

    Firefox for me. Ie 11 is fast and a step in the right direction but can't load half the sites I like. Also not very customizable. Maybe Microsoft will someday let it be open source than it can compete.

    I have used FF for some years and every now and again tried Opera, Chrome and IE. Can't remember now exactly why I permanently ditched Opera some months ago, possibly some sync reason. I would've liked Chrome for the speed though hasn't been possible to get a proper bookmarks sidebar- again, ditched. Left IE as a backup browser.
    So atm I'm using PaleMoon(Firefox) and happy with it. There aren't many choices for good browsers?

    Firefox gets my vote because it allows me to customize the browser for my needs.

    I use firefox and Ie11 when I cannot open something in firefox
    It might state that ie is used more because most users (not it users) have no clue what else to use. IE comes with the OS so that is what they use

    You're not a fan of using MS account to sign into desktop PC or other devices?
    I'm not a fan of signing in to my pc with my email password (I created a new acct with no activity). You never know when you will need to give access to someone because you aren't at your pc. You sure don't want them reading your email afterwards.
    Maybe alias passwords to access computer will happen in the future.

    And if you log into your email acct from a different computer; it would take both passwords before everything got synced up.
