Yeah, Firefox is still the /g/ choice whether they admit it or not. Shit like waterfox and other forks are outdated, lack timely security updates, and make your online identity incredibly unique--which effectively makes it far easier for websites to fingerprint you. NOT TO MENTION not gaining the performance gains from each official FF update, AND forks like Pale Moon dont even support quite a damn few of the most popular Firefox extensions.
