    Smile New browser

    I have been using Chrome for, quite a while now & latterly Opera.
    Been reading a lot a bad press about Chrome, last few weeks.
    Does Opera use the chrome innards?
    Can anyone advise a good, secure browser to use & one that I can copy my my links, passwords,etc,
    from chrome?

    Yes, they both use the same Blink engine.

    Assuming you are using windows.
    Have you concidered using either one of the default ones already installed.

    Yes.
    I did use Linux Mint 18 for about 18 months & started having problems, so my computer nerd says best to put back on 10.
    I do have my doubts,,,
    But I did goto MIT & studied Linux, in the 90's...

    I'm now using the Microsoft Edge development version that uses the chrome base. It automatically picks up the chrome settings so no hassle there.

    Seems to work well so will probably stick with it.

    .
    What?
    Linux is not a browser, it's an O/S.
    Your computer nerd isn't much of one if that was the solution.

    What are the names of the ones you are referring to? PJ
    Deafness.
    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)
