View Full Version : What is your browser and search engine?

September 11th, 2017, 02:23 AM
I have changed my browser to Brave on both my iPod and my laptop, and i have change my search engine to DuckDuckGo on both of them as well. Id use TOR but its so slow and such a heavy hitter.. And how my iPod is on its last leg and how my laptop struggles with YouTube Brave was a good choice. Light on the device and fast. I think it gave my iPod some time and my laptop can now actually play a video without buffering the page.

Im interested in seeing what other people use though. Not everyone leaves their stuff default right? Or do I really just miss Lenix that much...?

I've been using Chrome on my PC since before they "modernized" their icon styles, if you know what I mean :rolleyes: I have a Lumia 640 for a phone running Windows 10 Mobile, so on there I use the default which is Microsoft Edge. As for search engines, on all my devices I use Google.

September 16th, 2017, 11:57 AM

Browser switches between Firefox and Chrome, depending on the mood and what I plan to do.

Search engine is always Google though.

September 16th, 2017, 10:53 PM
I'm lazy, so I use Safari and Google. Sometimes I'll use Chrome or Firefox for specific purposes.

Firefox running on Linux and DuckDuckGo for search engine. I only browse on my PC, though.

Opera/Firefox for my browser and google for search engine.

November 26th, 2017, 11:34 AM
I use mostly google. But my university does provide me with some other, specialized search engines which come in really handy sometimes :)

November 26th, 2017, 09:10 PM
On my computers, I use Chrome and my search engine is Google.

On my iPhone, I use Safari and I also use Google as my search engine.

I'm not into this stuff but I use Google Chrome as a browser and Google as a search engine.
And today I have learned what a search engine is. Been using it for years without knowing the proper term.

Firefox and good old Google. I hate Bing with a passion. It's covered in fake news, which I'm just about done with.

December 12th, 2017, 02:32 PM
Chrome (Google) and Opera (Google) on my computer and Safari (Google) on my phone.

December 15th, 2017, 01:20 AM

December 16th, 2017, 10:49 PM
Opera. With DuckDuckGo as default search engine, although I often use Ecosia because I like it better.

December 17th, 2017, 01:54 AM
I use the memory-hungry Chrome and Google.

I have tried other things, but the experience was just never the same that Chrome could provide.

December 20th, 2017, 07:35 PM
Chrome and Google on Windows.
Safari and Google on Mac & iOS.

December 22nd, 2017, 02:29 PM

My search engine is bing.

On my computer and my android phone I use Edge. I use Google Chrome on my tablet because I am not able to install the Edge on my tablet. This is really bad.

December 26th, 2017, 03:37 PM
definitely Chrome and google

December 27th, 2017, 10:59 AM

December 29th, 2017, 05:50 PM

Safari or Chrome and google.

January 5th, 2018, 02:33 AM
I use Mozilla, and opera for the most part. I like how both have the ability to be incogneto and neither will allow populs without permissions.

January 7th, 2018, 01:15 PM
I am trying to switch to duckduckgo from google, but don't think it is so good

January 16th, 2018, 03:40 AM
On my Windows 10 PC, I use Firefox as my browser and Google as my search engine. My phone is more or less the same, except I use Safari instead of Firefox. On my backup laptop, I use Opera Browser and, yes, Google as my search engine. I would use another search engine but I'm just so used to typing in google in my address bar ._.

January 16th, 2018, 03:42 AM

I use duckduckgo. I like it because it doesn't keep track of your searches,

January 28th, 2018, 03:52 PM
Chrome and Google
Other search engines are really not as powerful, I tried DuckDuckGo and Ecosia and results were not good (for me)

February 21st, 2018, 06:51 PM
firefox and google

February 22nd, 2018, 04:01 PM

February 23rd, 2018, 06:12 PM
Chrome and Google on my desktop and my phone.
On my laptop I use Firefox or Microsoft Edge.
I tried MS Edge because Windows 10 wouldn't shut up about it. It's still slow.

February 23rd, 2018, 06:19 PM
i use google because the name is cute. :P

Today I will provide you with a little update:)

A few entries ago I wrote that I use Edge on my PC and Chrome on my tablet and smartphone.
Now I use Edge on tablet and smartphone too.

I use Firefox, and have been trying to use DuckDuckGo, for privacy reasons, but it doesn't always seem to give as good results as Google. Shame, really.

July 9th, 2018, 04:31 PM
I used to use Google but it suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks now. So I switched to Bing.

July 10th, 2018, 05:16 AM

I use Ecosia on my phone and it works surprisingly well and it's pretty easy to use.

Browser- safari or chrome
Search Engine - Google (always)

July 23rd, 2018, 08:32 AM
firefox / google

July 23rd, 2018, 11:43 PM
Safari / Google

To me Google is like the hub of the internet.

July 24th, 2018, 03:32 PM
A pretty heavily modified firefox with duck duck go as my default search as well. I try to avoid using google and other sites that collect and sell user data as much as possible. I have been a huge privacy advocate the last year or so and the more you learn about how much the web is able to track and sell your data, the scarier it gets.

check out https://privacytools.io if you are interested learning more about how much you are actually tracked online (they are not trying to sell you anything there) they have a lot of tutorials and guides that help you improve your online privacy.

I've recently started to use Linux as a main desktop, so I've been using Firefox and Chromium a lot due to them being less memory hogging than Chrome. I still use Google as the browser, though duckduckgo is an occasional alternative.

August 8th, 2018, 03:56 AM
At the moment I switched to google chrome on my PC and on my smartphone. My search engine is still bing.

My impressions according to google chrome have changed too. It is a really nice browser.

Safari and Firefox. I used Chromium for 4 years until google decided to make it a bloated RAM digger.
Edit: Google and duckduckgo

August 20th, 2018, 01:36 AM
I am looking for a alternative browser for my smartphone. I am using chrome right now. Has someone got good ideas?
