I hear tell that Chrome is not exactly the safest browser compared to any others. Dunno, I have no experience with it, but given Google's reputation for intrusiveness, I will avoid Chrome.

Look for Chromium, its the same as chrome but without the google hooks.

I typically use firefox but I'm on Linux so I don't have any issues running our of memory/resources.  XP drove me away in 2003 and I haven't looked back.

I hate chrome.  I like Firefox a lot and while I see slowdowns, some of that is just me, impatient.  I use Firefox on my home machines almost exclusively

Edge is okay on my version of Win 10.  Microsoft seems to think people only own phones with huge displays and tablets.   I wish they'd stop forgetting where there bread is buttered.   Edge seems to me to be engineered just for these smartphones and tablets.

I think Edge is intrusive-that funny feeling you keep getting is Microsoft storing away ever freaking mouse click you make.  Or close to it.  You have to go through and turn off all the junk, took me near an hour to turn off all of Microsofts intrusive junk.  Also I want to kill that stupid assistant and cannot. 


I stick with Firefox, I do an upgrade yes/no check every initialization, and I used to have tons of add-ons but dumped them when I thought a virus was loose on my machine. 
Have not added them back. 

Also, as mentioned in a thread awhile ago, I upgraded my entire home network to the latest 802.11  gigabit inbound modem, a matching modem, and matching hubs.  The speed difference was more than noticeable.  I have 5 people in the house and most have two devices at the same time up and on line and active.  It sure makes a difference.

You hit it right, edge is supposed to work on all platforms and collects all sorts of stuff for the cloud.  I don't have all platforms, in fact I have only 'puters that I'm willing to use.  So I ditched it.  And, that silly assistant Cortina(?) can be killed, I did it  (But I forget how or I'd clue you in.)  All the rest of the bloatware took me nearly two hours to peel off and out.
