I use FireFox almost exclusively whether I'm on PC, phone, or tablet. It's not without its quirks, but it's the been the best of any of them for me.

Three things that really sold it to me:

(1) I DETEST webpages with small font sizes. I look at a computer all day long so my eyes get strained enough as it is, so the last thing I want is to make it worse by straining to read pages with small type. FireFox has a feature that allows you to zoom the text on a webpage without zooming the images so they aren't taking up ridiculous amounts of real estate on a page. I absolute love this feature and it would be very difficult to ever have to give it up.

(2) The bookmark syncing across devices in FireFox has worked far better for me than in Chrome. It seemed in Chrome I was having trouble getting bookmarks to show up.

(3) Addons. I love that I can install different addons to my android tablet that I cannot install using Chrome.

On the cons, FireFox can be a resource hog at times, although it seems to have gotten somewhat better. I'd suggest giving it another try.
