Same here. Google's getting really fucking creepy the past few years.

I recently made the same switch for the same reason, but found Firefox's handling of video playback on Mac OS to be disappointing... stuttering, audio sync issues, etc. Very distracting when on YouTube or Netflix. So I switched again, to Safari. It's got its own issues, mainly that it's not nearly as extensible as Chrome or Firefox, and its dev team doesn't seem to care much anymore. I'm still not sure I'll keep using it, but it's working for now. I've got adblockers installed. Videos are smooth as butter, and I don't have that icky feeling from sending all my data to Google anymore.

Opera?

Chrome breaks too much with the amount of extensions I need to make it have the same functionality as opera and waterfox. Waterfox just feels not nice, but I use it 2nd most. Opera seems the best to me.

You know I forgot all about Opera. I have used it in the past but it just kinda faded from memory

I was a very happy Opera user for years but when they switched to the Chrome engine, removing a number of features that was unique to Opera in the process, it was a show stopper. I'm using Firefox now and though I miss 'the little browser that could' I have no plans to switch back; FF has got some pretty great add-ons that I'm pretty much hooked on now.

Some of the original Opera devs are working on Vivaldi and last I checked the plan was to bring back the glory days of Opera, but I have no idea where the project is at right now.

Recently converted over to Opera! I wish they had a Hangouts extension though.

Firefox. It's less bulky.

Is it? When Chrome was published it was less bulky then any other browsers. Have things changed? I always thought Firefox was still a bit slow.

Firefox seems to run much more lean-ly both on my WIN machine at work and my mint machine at home. Plus, I like the idea of supporting Mozilla.

I use Chrome. I had to use both in school, and I always liked the way Chrome worked more.

I love that I don't need a separate bar at the top for searching and URLs. I think chrome looks a lot cleaner all around. And really, with my specs, chrome using more RAM than firefox (if this is even still true) doesn't even matter.

You can also use the address bar to search in Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc. It's not a Chrome-exclusive feature by any means.

Firefox

I could never stop all the little ways Chrome phones home and does things behind my back.

After applying few privacy things from HERE

And a few performance things from HERE

it has become a lean and mean motherfucker. I love it.

Currently the only two privacy add-ons that I run are uBlock Origin and uMatrix as they do everything that a bunch of others used to do and better.

It's actually good now.

Firefox. But in the form of the Pale Moon build. So nice on modern OS after they stripped all the legacy crap from it.
