Browsers for Windows 10

What is the best browser for Windows 10? Edge is the default. What about Firefox? Are there any other possibilities?

Right now I'm using Safari but I don't think there is a Windows version.

I use Firefox & Chrome. Chrome seems to work better with some video things. I think Opera also works on Windows 10. I avoid Microsoft browsers.

You can run Safari under Windows. I tried it a few years ago (so my opinion is invalid) but I didn't really like it. I suspect that it's just available so that those that use it on their Apple devices have a familiar look and feel when they are forced to use Windows.
Chrome is the most popular for a reason. Firefox is just fine too. As I've posted before, I use Opera for no other reason than I got pissed off with Chrome a few years ago (when it was massively bloated) and have never switched to anything else. Opera is now the bloated one but I've got lots of RAM so it's not an issue.
The best browser is the one you like to use.

Also good to know. I've successfully downloaded and installed Safari on my Windows machine. Thanks.

I have been using Firefox for years. However, new versions seem to break things and the latest "improvements" make things less usable, imo. I have been recently using Brave, a browser built on the Chromium engine. Brave's claim to fame is speed and security. I first read about it on oldergeeks.com, my favorite downloads site. Try it and see how it works for you. https://brave.com/
