    i just switched from Dolphin to Safari. It's the first time I have exclusively used the defaul browser and I really like it. I have all my bookmarks loaded into it and I have ad block turned on. I really like when you start to scroll on the page it hides the address bar.

    What's your favorite and why?

    I really enjoy Google Chrome.

    Sure it uses more resources than some but the features, the UI and the smoothness is well worth it. I especially like that it's cross platform and runs exceptionally well on my Androids, PC, Macs, and IOS devices. All synced together it's my favorite by far.

    I use Safari on everything. I quite like using default applications that sync everything all around and work for my needs.

    Chrome. That way I can use the same browser on all my devices, which aren't all Apple.

    Safari, same as on my Mac.

    Only time I use Chrome is when I need to use Flash so about 0.00001% of my year.

    Safari because it is the browser that apps default to.

    iCab Mobile and Red Browser, mainly for their ability to download. For everything else, I use Safari.

    This, plus, i genuinly love it, accept it's broken in its current state and needs an optimisation overhaul. Its jerky and slow as hell at times.

    So the continual crashes don't bother you? It's probably the single worst behaving app by a major company that I've ever used. Tried it in five different releases, uninstalled each time due to the instability.

    Safari with 1blocker. Love it more with split view in iOS 10.

    So about half a minute each year? :p

    Yeah, I did the math. :/

    I use Safari on all of my Apple devices and Chrome on everything else.

    Chrome because of great synchronization across all of my devices. It's also fast and works well.

    Safari 95% of the time, but do use Mercury for certain things. I have an add blocker installed on Safari so for some sites that don't like that I will switch to Mercury rather than toggle it off. Also I like Mercury's incognito mode and that I can also use it to not track and start clean every time I use it.

    A little off topic but I've yet to find a browser I really like on my Android Tablets. Biggest reason is that none of them have a bookmarks bar, which I much prefer to any other bookmark managment. Even Mercury which does have a bookmarks bar on iOS doesn't on Android.

    Safari on all of my devices, and iCab occasionally on my iDevices when I want to download something.

    Safari. Because ad blocker, it's smooth and passwords from Mac.

    On android I use chrome but wish it had ad blocker. On Windows which I don't have at the moment I use chrome too.

    Safari. Way smoother/faster than mobile Chrome in my experience.

    I'd use Safari on the desktop, too, but I'm a web developer and the developer tools in Chrome are way better than Safari's.
