    Safari on iPhone, Firefox on Mac (although I've been forcing myself to use Safari for the integration).

    Seems like a great opportunity for a poll.

    Safari. If it were available on Windows I'd use it there too.

    Apple ported Safari to Windows years back and it was really bad.

    Slashdot is offline.
    I use CCleaner for cookie management.

    Strikes against Safari: Silverlight on Amazon Video and Netflix, bookmark handling and sorting.
    Strikes against Firefox: right clicking a link to open in a new tab doesn't work properly, various websites don't work properly.
    Strikes against Chrome: can't block third party cookies from websites you haven't been to, not as good handling of bookmarks as Firefox.

    Safari and Firefox on Mac, Safari-only on iOS

    The only thing I don't like about Safari is the weaker selection of extensions/addons.

    Safari on both devices. It is fast and has ecosystem-based features other browsers don't have.

    Absolutely love the Reading option - able to read documents without 90% of it being ads - same on phone.

    Safari everywhere. Occasional exception: Firefox on Mac for developing with the availability of its dark console.

    i don't have a favorite, but i use Firefox most of the time on Mac.

    Think i'm loosing, as most would use the default browsers.

    Why not block ads?

    Too many sites beg me to remove it or white list - so I just make it a point to ignore sites with too many ads, which sadly is a LOT of sites.
