Default Your favourite browser

Lately I've noticed that Chrome isn't running smooth at all and since there are a lot of alternative browsers, I was wondering which one do you prefer any why?

+1 for Firefox, using extensions. I also have an HTC One and I like Opera on that.

The best browser I've downloaded is a floating popup browser, called "Floating Browser COBRA". It has a lot more settings/customization than the Samsung popup browser, so much that I don't even use Samsung's anymore.

Chrome as a daily driver for sure. Firefox and the AOSP browser are best for privacy though.

As much as I despise chrome, I simply use it daily for the sole purpose of syncing everything. Other than that, I also agree that it's not smooth and laggy as hell!
