Mozilla Firefox 38.0.5 RC 3 / 38.0.1 pick
Software Product Description
Mozilla Firefox is so flexible that you can not only remove what you do not want but also place what you want almost anywhere. The “Customize” panel allows you to easily add, remove or move buttons. You can make it easy to access the features you use most often.
The Sync feature lets you access your passwords, bookmarks and history from multiple devices irrespective of your location. Tabbed browsing lets you open multiple pages in one window, and switching between the tabs is easy and fast.
The browser includes several features designed to enhance your security and privacy. The Lightbeam add-on enables you to see those trying to watch you online, and turning on private browsing ensures others will not see your browsing history. Many websites collect information about you as you browse the Internet, but Firefox includes a “Do Not Track” feature that lets you decide how you would like to share your information, that is if you want to share any information at all.
You can also add a multitude of extensions to increase the functionality of your browser.
These great features would mean little if the browser´s speed frustrated you. Thankfully, the latest Mozilla Firefox is also the fastest so far. It beats other popular browsers at accomplishing everyday tasks and technical benchmarks. A recent independent test dubbed it as the “Speed King,” as it outperformed the other browsers. You can even use the browser to play online games smoothly and without affecting the overall performance of your computer.

Pros: On my Win8.1 desktop, Firefox is faster and much more stable than any Chrome-based web browser.
Cons: Chrome will not support most Flash content from version 42 and beyond.
Other Thoughts: If you want to continue to curse at your monitor screen, please follow Steven's bad advise and continue to use Chrome ver. 42 and later. If you need a great web browser that has the large Mozilla support, switch to the latest version of Firefox. I use the PortableApps.com version of Firefox and I love it! With help from Ghostery, WOT, BitDefender TrafficLight, Avast Online Security, Blur, Adblock Plus, BetterPrivacy, BrowserProtect add-ons, I'm more comfortable browsing the web.
