I used to use Firefox almost exclusively, but they started rolling out constant updates every month that kept breaking things and making it worse. At
work I have to connect to internal servers that we don't bother to install legit SSL certificates on (why would we, if they are our own private,
internal servers?) but after years of using Firefox it suddenly would throw a fit and refuse to connect to servers without SSL certs or self-signed
SSL certs. So I stopped using it, both at work and at home.
At work lately I've been using Chrome a lot, since while it still throws a "WARNING WARNING WILL ROBINSON!" when it sees a self-signed SSL cert, it
will still let you override it and connect anyway. I'm hoping it stays that way. I don't want or need a browser that holds your hand and tells you how
to browse the web.
At home I've been using Opera lately. It supports all the extensions that block ads and trackers that I used in Firefox, and while it's not completely
open-source like Firefox is, it seems more privacy oriented than other browsers (like Chrome). It's also less annoying in that so far it doesn't seem
to be constantly updating like Firefox was. (I hated that, especially when you would have to reinstall an extension) So far I like it.
