I was using Firefox for a long time. Changed to Google Chrome and Comodo Dragon (Chrome based). Maybe the new Firefox will capture an edge (No pun intended o_O) and bring me back, but I always liked the single process character and runtime manageability of Firefox. So it wasn't that I like Chrome so much as Mozilla changing their browser formula for Firefox that led me to Chrome/based. I used Opera for about 5 years up until 12.

I like Vivaldi which appears to me to be based on Opera 12, and I would love to see a brand new version of Netscape. If they went back and pulled some of the creativity and the vision that was in the Netscape browser, it could only be great. Recalling the days of the Netscape ISP service and still attempting to understand what happened. Bring back the magic! :D

My dream in next gen browser is modern and clean UI browser which has built in (not from extension) VPN and Ad blocking capability. :)
There is such a browser it is called Cocoon Online Privacy & Security Software | Cocoon

However it is kind of a mystery in that I have yet to see any hands on reviews, youtube reviews etc... or come across anyone that actually uses it.

As such I would exercise caution before trying it and if one were to try it I would only do so in a sandbox just to err on the side of caution.

Nevermind it appears this browser is is a just custom 32bit version of FireFox 38.4.0 that has an integrated Proxy service, ad blocker, and antivirus.

For the past few months I've been using Nightly, and I've enjoyed it. For me, Nightly is currently much faster than the stable channel of Firefox.
The different channels of Firefox explained:
  • Nightly - Under heavy development. Least stable/secure. First tests of new changes/features; some changes/features introduced in Nightly may be removed before Release and other versions. Only for testing. Should only be used by very experienced users/testers.
  • Aurora - Still under development. More stable/secure than Nightly. Some bugs may still be present that need resolution. Should be used by experienced users only who can post/report reproducible problems and work around issues.
  • Beta - Final development stage before Release. Usually good stability/security. Major bugs resolved. Working out final bugs. Preview of what Release version will most likely contain in the way of changes/features, though some changes/features can still disappear before Release.
  • Release - Final channel released to public for everyday use.

I'm using it on a PTC site. It the only browser that disables the site's timer. I also have Sea Monkey and Firefox
Fair enough if you're using it specifically for the purpose of disabling a timer for a PTC site.

As for the claims that it tackles "privacy" issues is nothing you can't do yourself.
