The big guys seem to get slower with every update. I also have a habit of opening multiple tabs (like, obsessively) so memory footprint is also important for me, but at the same time, it would be nice to have a good balance with functionality (otherwise a bare-bones mobile browser would be the "fastest").

I used to use Avitor until they stopped updating it. I've been trying out Midori, Pale Moon, Torch & Vivaldi with mixed results. Any recommendations?

I just switched to Waterfox, because I don't want to lose all my extensions in a month. It's snappier and less resource intensive than Firefox, but otherwise feels exactly the same. Love it.

How does it compare to other Firefox based browsers like Comodo IceDragon?

I use Opera and Firefox. Both offer different features, but I like the opera interface and VPN feature

Agree about waterfox. I've not had one of those slowdowns/stop script messages in forever.

I won't use chrome just because google owns it. They can start giving me money and I'll answer their f***ing questionaires about image A or B which mosquito is sexier for whatever ungodly purpose they want that info for.

@kobalobasileus @rpgian
Have you guys used any FFox alternatives other than waterfox to compare? (For eg Comodo Icedragon?)
