Discussion on: What is your Favorite Browser?

I was using Opera for many years. I switched to Vivaldi (because I really liked how I could customize it), but due to performance issues, I switched back to Opera which was running more smoothly on my system (I should try Vivald again now, I was really new when I tried it out).

Currently I'm testing the new chromium based Edge browser (beta) which felt surprisingly fast and isn't using so much system resources as Opera or Vivaldi. I found, that when my laptop is in battery mode, it lasts much longer when I use Edge instead of Opera, although both are built on chromium. Is anyone else experiencing this?
