    "Still the best browser regardless of what OS you're running. It has a clean and simple interface, it's quick and customizable, and its built-in ad blocking capabilities is one of the best out there. 👌"

    "The king of customization. Its library of available extension is second to none and with its recent performance changes and visual overhaul with the Quantum update, it definitely gives Chrome a run for its money. ❤"

    "The new kid on the block. It combines the customizability of Firefox and mixes with the performance of Chrome to make a very compelling alternative to both. Admirable freshman effort. 😁"

    "A decent option and it's fast as expected but what sets it apart is its focus on removing ads from websites and replacing it with something else affiliated with its partner. It was a surprise for me at first but this was a way for its creators to gain revenue. "

    "Its adoption of Chromium's blink and V8 engines bring this aging browser back to modern day standards. Its built-in VPN is still a rarity among browser even today and its Opera Turbo is genuinely useful especially for slower connections. Still a great option. 😊"
