Is using Chrome as my browser any better than Edge? Someone told me to go that route and I feel it's slower?????

I have both, I always liked Chrome, but since I got my new laptop with WIN 10 installed, it seems like Edge works better. I think Chrome tries to load more crap ware.

I use Cyberfox with DuckDuckgo for searches...no tracking with the same or better results.

My super geek millennial wife's son set it up and believe me he knows what is what in this arena.

Duck Duck Go X3

I have been using it for years. Google and the other huge browser companies track everything you search and then sell the data to other advertisers. They then know all about you. It's in massive data bases and never goes away. I prefer the anonymous searching of DDG since they save nothing and when you close the browser, its all gone. I also set my tools to erase the history every time I exit so there is no junk for others to search. Be sure to delete the cookies too or you will get inundated with crap. Its in the tools menu also under Internet Options.

I used to use the TOR browser but it gets slow going around the world.

You can uninstall it. It does however not give up easily. There threads of crap that the uninstall won't grab. There are good uninstallers that will find everything but that's another piece of software. You can search for individual files of junk after the uninstall. It will also ask you every time you open the browser window to download it again. If you can find the cookies associated with it and delete them, it makes it harder for them to annoy you.

Concerning vulnerable browsers , From a report on ComputerWorld a couple days ago:
"Chaitin was just one of several Chinese security teams that participated in Pwn2Own, again held at the annual CanSecWest conference in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. The group took third place among the participants, and won a total of $90,000 in prize money.
Firefox was not the only browser to fail at Pwn2Own. Apple's Safari was hacked four times at the contest, and Microsoft's Edge was exploited five times during the three-day event. Google's Chrome, however, came away unscathed."

I use Chrome primarily on my Windows 10 laptop, mostly because I am used to it on Windows Vista.
I also have Edge and Firefox. Nothing wrong with any of them as far as I can tell.
I do use Adblock Plus, but sometimes news articles make you disable it if you want to read their article.

I run chrome with an adblocker or TOR browser depending on my mood.
With the adblocker, there are no ad's for youtube or pandora.
Then again, I use a highly upgraded Mac built for running AutoCAD.

It is my understanding that chrome has a lower power draw than firefox.
I am of the opinion that both Safari and Edge (Internet explorer) are garbage.
I run chrome because I like the interface and the vast majority of my work is stored in Google Drive and I can get a free ad blocker.

Its really a matter of trying what you like and going from there.

Hey folks,

I am the IT manager where I work, so please take what I say with a grain of salt....

Microsoft Browsers are IMO virus magnets. Microsoft made a habit out of pissing off hackers over the years so it is the first and most often attacked format. once folks find holes in MS products, they share it. Chrome has been "mostly" spared those kinds of targeted attacks. That said, on my Windows 10 Laptop, I removed the Edge icon form the taskbar and replaced it the the Internet Explorer one for the once or twice i DO need to use the Microsoft product (some site require it)

Chrome is my primary browser. I also use AdBlockers. Chrome is good at handling it if you are a person who open lots of tabs (me). Firefox seem to be slower when opening the same set. (DISCLAIMER: I have not redone these tests in about a year, updates may have changed things)

I use Firefox for sites that want to run Java.

Bottom line is that Internet security is an illusion, and what browser YOU like is what you should use (Carefully)

========================================================
Contacts is part of GMail AFAIK.

In GMail there is a drop down arrow in the upper left that allows the choices.
