    Safari. Works faster, better optimization ( El Capitan at least), lower temps, less RAM used.

    Actually Safari Technology Preview, but I voted Safari. Probably best suited to Macs, especially ones that rely on batteries.

    Safari for the better integration across Apple products. Chrome for backup and development.

    So, which ad-blocker do you use with Safari? Im using Safari only on my iPhone and Adguard blocker works perfectly. What about Safari for Mac?

    And how can i get all my data from Chrome to Safari? (History, bookmarks, passwords and everything)

    Safari. It's the most efficient and lightweight browser that supports the only 2 extensions that I use: Wipr and RES.

    I use Chrome for flash sites, and I use uBlock Origin and RES as my only two extensions.

    Can i import all the data in this way? Saved passwords are more important actually


    This way isnt worked for passwords. It only imported history. Anyway i will still use Safari.

    I don't know if you can import passwords (For security reasons), there may be an extension of some kind to do this but I don't think you can do it as standard. You could always use something like 1password for that stuff and not have to worry in the future.

    Chrome for console and various web dev plug ins. Also, Chrome just feels so much faster.

    Lately I have been using Safari more. Before it was mostly Chrome.
    The only extension I use is AdBlock Plus on both browsers.

    Why do I use Safari most of the time? I think it uses less battery.
