Chrome all the way. This thread should have a poll btw.
I use Firefox Nightly Privacy Mode with a lot of addons as my quasi-incognito browser. Initially I wanted it to become my main browser but I'm not convinced that it is faster than Chrome.

The other thing I am doing is replacing my extensions with superior alternatives.

Yandex using Opera extension store? and not compatible...
What engine does Yandex use? If it uses Chromium then it should work well. Opera can use some Chrome extensions (or most/all of them) too. I remember making an extension for Chrome a few years ago which ran just as flawlessly on Opera without any code-base changes. Yandex looks like the sort of browser to be chromium-based but @Slyguy should know :)

Yandex uses Chrome Extensions, same as any other Chromium Fork. Given Yandex has perhaps the best speed dial ever made I don't see why a third party speed dial would be needed. I run 3 Chrome extensions perfectly in Yandex and never had any incompatibilities.

Remember, I speaketh about Yandex Beta.. Most of the good features haven't filtered down to live yet and I personally think Beta runs and looks far better. Not long before 7.12 release I suspect. For now, beta is my choice.

Download Yandex Browser (beta)

definitely chromium based but the incompatible with FVD speed dial
Yes, I tried to use Yandex to test, but the Speed Dial FVD extension is not compatible, I uninstalled it at the time, I can not get used to it without this extension, I already have my favorites everything organized with it, Opera remains my best choice.

I am reminded, again, of what first captured my attention and admiration, here on MalwareTips. How wonderful it is(y) (still) hearing about all the latest favorite browsers, and why.:unsure:
Personally, I've continued with the solid 64 bit Firefox clone, Cyberfox (although it's nearing end of development life this year) and have been quite pleased with Edge's performance including extensions like Ublock Origin on both browsers.
On linux I like Slimjet & Firefox, and also Firefox's 64 bit version which we use beside Edge upon Mrs. Cats' Windows 10!:D
