Does it have good adblock, script blocking and web debugging, via plugins is fine? If so then I will probably be able to use it. Time was I would have wanted a download helping program for video sites, or possibly something like greasemonkey and associated scripts, but http://www.videograbby.com/ is doing well for me at this point and youtube comments don't load by default so I never have to see them.

Practically it means something firefox based (pale moon is doing what needs doing on the main machine) as I have not found a suitable replacement for adblock, noscript and firebug.

Google Chrome, because it feels like the fastest browser to me. I used to use Mozilla Firefox from time to time, but not anymore.

I'm honestly torn between Chrome and Waterfox (an obvious mozilla clone).
Waterfox does almost everything I want perfectly, but seems to have problems with twitch.tv even with addons/extensions.

Waterfox isn't a clone, it's a fork. There are many Firefox forks, mainly intended to get around the non-free Mozilla branding.

Ahh right, I had never heard the term 'fork' until now. Thanks for the enlightenment! :)
Probably a good idea to learn the term because forks are extremely common in homebrew development.

The difference between a fork and a clone is that 'clone' implies some kind of illegitmate attempt to copy the work of others, whereas a fork is a completely legitimate derivative based on the same source code.

Try the Fasterfox addon and set it to the Ultra setting, it speeds up Firefox a lot.

You forgot Edge. I haven't used it but I hear it's actually pretty good.
I used Firefox for a long time, switched to Chrome for a while then back to Firefox when I realized how much of a RAM hog Chrome was (also, I missed my addons)

So this is just a legit program with copied source code?
