    I use Safari and Chrome but mostly Safari on Apple devices and Chrome on PC. To watch higher quality videos like on Youtube, I use Chrome.

    Sometimes I’m using Firefox for a while. It’s great. But later I always switch back to Safari.

    I decided to switch from Safari to Firefox mainly because it looks better and has dark mode but I switched back to Safari. Firefox has basically no 3D Touch features and some websites won’t work properly until you disable tracking protection.

    I use chrome. My computers are all Windows and I can’t live without sync and handoff. Although I exclusively use Google apps on my iPhone.

    I use Chrome exclusively along with Gmail, Gmaps, and Google photos. Love the Apple hardware, but the Google apps have served me well over the years.

    I mostly just use Safari, but i have use Firefox and Chrome.. For some reason i reckon Firefox on Desktop (due too add-ons), but Safari on iOS, because its the default.

    Since rendering engine is the same on all browsers in iOS, I just go default safari most of the time, although screen time works extremely differently than chrome or Firefox (disabled per site!).

    I use Safari mostly. Firefox is usually reserved for doing things that aren't for me and/or if I simply want a browsing data purge on quit. I also use it if/when Safari doesn't do the right thing… if it doesn't work in Firefox it isn't going to work. Chrome I use the least but it has some specific tasks… like my service provider's PVR system requires Chrome.
