Default Why Firefox is still the best!

Open Source - no strings attached (well, almost).

Opera used to be nice until it abandoned ship with 12 (totally independent).
Vivaldi is nice but still dependent on Google Chrome.
Chrome (Chromium) is good but dependent on Google.
Firefox, dependent on Mozilla who do not depend on Yahoo or Google anymore (oligarchs), at least, in principle.

Conclusion...
Freedom (Firefox) is best!

Strange logic, in my book.

I don't follow the conclusion nor do I agree with it.

However, each of us is entitled to an opinion. This is the "debating chamber" after all.

I agree, strange logic to declare Firefox the best.

People will have different reasons to say that the browser they use is the best, based on their own preferences.

I find Firefox the best, because of several reasons... I really like the feel and interface of the browser... even so when it has undergone changes in interface to match that of Chrome. I don't mind if it's a tad slower compared to Chrome, but with its add-ons, and general feel, and low memory usage (in comparison to Chrome), I find Firefox the best.

I have tried other browsers at times, but I always return to Firefox as my default and preferred browser.

I haven't used Chrome on my PC ever, and won't do so. First, I don't like all the privacy issues associated with Chrome, the stuff it sends. Then, I dislike how much memory it uses for every tab that you open. And I just don't like the interface.

Nowadays, all the other good browsers are now based on Chromium, or Chrome... and so even if they are good, and have some good features, at the end of the day, you just feel like you are using a Chrome clone.

Would love for some originality in a browser, which Firefox has still kept intact, despite making some changes like the interface like Chrome. Still, Firefox has preserved its originality, and continues to do so.

Originality wise, I do like Qupzilla, still, it lacks the add-ons etc to make it a complete browser like Firefox.

I will continue to use Firefox, which I find best for my own reasons.

True.
Even if I was never good at logic, i do agree with Anupam (except for Chrome theme part) and would like to point out how Firefox is still the most configurable browser out there.
If you're happy with an adblocker that's good but i've grown into many extensions and themes that, along with default options make Firefox the most tweakable out there. Wish i could say the same for Opera.

My everyday's browser is still Chrome for mainly two reasons:

1. Speed
2. Support for multi user profiles. Firefox does this but not as good.

For personal reasons, I will never use Firefox or Mozilla products ever again. I cannot support this organization.

It probably has to do with a politico-moral issue of 2 years ago or so.

Need for speed...

A FIAT 127 standard car is still an incredible machine.
Not as fast or performing as so many others, but...
you could open the hood and fix it yourself.

With a few extensions i can autohide all toolbars on Firefox.
Talk about a distraction free environment hé!

Yes, something like this, for example. Love it, because then I can use my monitor space a good deal more efficiently when I'm using several browser windows.
