After Uninstalling Avast, Now which Browser?
Well, I’m not capable of suggesting you use this or that browser. It all depends on you. What kind of browser do you want? For example, I use two browsers: Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
I use Google Chrome while working or for office purposes and Mozilla Firefox for streaming live service or browsing Youtube because they have the best extension to remove pop-up ads or any other ads. Ohh, I also use Hoxx VPN in Mozilla Firefox, which is free. But, I notice that when I use website blockers like Cold Turkey Blocker, Mozilla consumes lots of memory(RAM) and CPU power. Which I really don’t like.
Meanwhile, i don’t have any issues related to Google Chrome. In fact, I am now using ads blocker extension to block youtube ads(not pop up ads). With the latest version of this browser, it consumes less RAM and processing power.
In my point of view, we should always install two browsers Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox or maybe others. So, if one browser doesn’t have a feature, you can get from another.
