Changing a Browser these days can be challenging. You’d have to first find a browser that’ll suit all your needs. My needs in a browser include Lightweight, super fast, nice interface, secure and doesn’t consume too much ram. Of course, there are other things I would obviously need in a Browser but these are just the important ones.
