I'm trying to find a better browser for windows 10.
Google Chrome gives me ALL the adds, and Firefox doesn't get along with the new version of windows (at least not the version I downloaded yesterday) if all the crashes I am having are to judge.
Any ideas what to go with? All the paid shill sites out there masquerading as independent reviews make it hard to find decent honest reviews.

I'm running the latest version of Firefox with no problems. I can't really see myself switching anytime soon, either...I have customized it with a bunch of extensions, and every other browser I try (including vanilla Firefox) just doesn't deliver what I want. I know Chrome has a fair amount of extensions and customization options as well, but it's lacking some of the ones I have become most accustomed to since Firefox's version number was in the single digits.
My primary browser (and one I access Paizo, PathfinderWiki, and d20pfrsd with) is Opera (Chromium-based). I have uBlock Origin, Reverse image search on Google, Bookmarks, and Images ON/OFF extensions installed.
I'm running Win8.1 x64 right now, and plan to reinstall this same configuration on my new Win10 notebook when it arrives. Both Opera and Firefox are very stable and fast.
I've had problems with Firefox as well with Win10. It plays REALLY badly on the machines I've tried it on. It will run but some simple things like bookmarks seem to fumble up. It's almost as if Win10 focused on trying to make the Firefox experience a horrible one.
I use Google Chrome in Win10 (edge is FAR worse than Firefox, ironically), so far that's the best one I've found that can actually run most website extensions and has the add ons where you can disable things or enable things (for example, disabling most ads and such).
