The Best Browsers of 2017: Chrome, Firefox, Edge, And More Tested | Digital Trends. I have long since given up on all of you who are still using Windows Explorer or Edge. The standard Microsoft browsers are magnets for hackers, limited in feature set, and, while easy for the novice to use, like driving a Ford Model A in the Jet Age. So, for those of you who want more customization, add on tools and extensions that will enhance your browser experience, and state of the art Internet surfing, I give you Chrome, Firefox Quantum, Opera and Vivaldi. I use Chrome for daily use, Vivaldi when I want quick and dirty browsing, and, when Chrome ticks me off, Firefox Quantum. Any one of these four is far superior to Edge or Explorer. This is a pretty good comparison of the top browsers. Pick your poison.
