Mine is Chrome, what about yours?
I knew I was an idiot in the past, I have toned down since then.

I use Chrome. I'd use another browser (preferably one that doesn't use as much memory) but I'm too acclimated to Chrome.
I like cute pokemon and space games.

Firefox, mainly because I have used it since beta 0.7 and that chrome hogs CPU with video decoding while firefox doesn't.

I have used Opera as well, I prefer both Opera and FF over chrome.  I also feel chrome hasn't updated for years and feels clunky and antiquated in 2018 compared to the other browsers.

Why only 1 option?

I use Chrome and Firefox and Safari, depending on where I am and what I'm doing.  Right now I'm on Chrome.

I use a bunch too.  Chrome is a huge memory hog for some things, so I use Firefox also.  Firefox is also considered a much more secure browser.

I actually different versions of both browsers, I can have up to 5 running at one time.  The regular Firefox and Chrome as well as the versions Comodo makes (called Chromodo, Dragon and Ice Dragon), also considering getting Opera, which for some reason has also decided to become a Chrome variant.

Firefox. It's hassle-free and sleek in operation. Plus it didn't crash constantly like Chrome :roll:.

I use Firefox but I also have chrome installed just in case some site(s) may have a special preference/favor for it. Obviously M$s browsers are installed by default but I only use them for the same reason as chrome.
When I was much younger I used to use Netscape (oh those glorious early internet days...).

I remember Mosaic when it was launched.  That changed everything and brought the much hyped world wide web to the masses. With Mosaic it became clear that this was superior to gopher.  I did switch from Mosaic to Netscape when Netscape came out.  Then I moved to Opera, then to Mozilla, and now I'm on Chrome.  Browsers have become monsters eating gigabytes of memory for breakfast, which was why I moved from Mozilla to Chrome, but Chrome is pretty bad too.
