I've been using Vivaldi since you told me about it Lew. It's fast.

Very interesting indeed.  I have found that their choices are MY choices as well.  Wonder why they didn't include Opera?

My guess here is that any filtering will adversely affect speed. Any AdBlocker, Script Blocker, Internet Security Suite, etc. will play an important part measuring browser efficiency. Internet connection speed, for the individual, will obviously affect load times but this parameter would be equally distributed across all browser applications.

Internet privacy is grouped with things that include Unicorns, Leprechauns and Free lunches, even with the TOR browser. My main concern is preventing malicious scripts from loading/running when websites load and avoiding downloading virus/malware stuff. That, in reality, just about all an Internet user can hope for.

I always run with script and ad blockers as well as purging all cookies, history, and persistent cookies...   I can't seem to convince my one neighbor to do it and his wife had one of those scam pop-ups the other night and a web site that can't be described in a family friendly way...  :o
