macOS Sierra - What do we like for a browser?

Sierra users, what's your 'workhorse' browser (& version)?
I'm currently on FF-47 but unsure about jumping to v57 (Quantum).
Safari (10.1.2) seems to work cleanly but I haven't used it regularly in years.

I was on Sierra until recently (I skipped High Sierra). I had no trouble with either Safari nor FF, but rarely used FF.

If you want a Google Chrome without the Google, try Epic: [www.epicbrowser.com]

FF Quantum 66.0b13 (beta), Chrome Version 72.0.3626.121 and Safari Version 12.0.3 with Sierra -- all multiple tabs, multiple windows and sites -- no problem with any of them.

None seem any "faster" than the other.

Use FF the most, but only because it has the most autofills for all the sites I visit. Chrome for all my video, and Safari for everything else.

Firefox, current version or near-current (64.x and yet.x).

I use safari because it syncs across all my devices and I have a lot of devices. I use Firefox when safari fails to work properly or when I need to download a video.

Safari is my goto.

I have Firefox but only use it in Mavs, when Safari can't handle a more modern site.

Occasionally, I use FireFox in Sierra when a couple of my sites don't seem to want to load. But it's always the sites, not Safari.

FFx Q for me. Like it much better than other choices other than a few things about bookmarks.

So I installed FF 65.0.2 after backing up my profile and was on the fence
until I recalled this setting in About:config: "browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar; true"
Which effectively does away with a separate Tab Bar, yay!


Pretty fast and so far is working with all my regular favorite sites.
thxs to all for the tips.
