I use Chrome with quite a few plug-ins to increase security and stop ads. I've tried all the major ones and came back to Chrome.

Which plug-ins do you use?

I use Do Not Disturb which does stuff like block data mining. I also have AdBlock Plus, DuckDuckGo which is a search engine that doesn't track your searches, and HTTPS Everywhere.
How do you get them?  Just go to the websites and load them?

I also forgot Cupcake which enables my browser to be a thru point for someone accessing Tor. All it does it act as a another entry place but only the end IP will show up if someone checks. That's probably not too clear but I'm not exactly sure how to explain it.

I have Tor but rarely use it.  Only for deep web, clandestine spy stuff.

That would make a good name for a band - Alta Vista.

Wiki says Google put it out of business.  :boo hiss:

Wat browser is, in your opinion, the easiest, safest and best?

I've been using Firefox and I don't like it.

I don't like the way they changed Opera.

Don't want to use Chrome.

What operating system are you on and do you use a tablet, laptop, phone or desktop?

Opera now comes with a VPN (virtual private network) which allows you to browse anonymously. Well worth going back to.

Just so you know, Amazon won't let your order if you won't allow cookies.  I tried to order something using Opera and they asked me to disable VPN first.

Yes I know. Just disable it for Amazon.
VPNs are the future of home internet browsing.

For not getting viruses, Get Chrome. This is my opinion it isn't a fact. But yeah, my advice is Chrome for security.
