I used Firefox for about 13 years. About a year ago I switched to Opera as default after having used the Chromium version roughly 50-50 with Firefox for many months prior and mainly since Firefox Quantum was released. After eventually customising it to my liking it became good enough for me to jettison Firefox. I still have it installed and run it up from time to time but now Vivaldi is my second browser.

Chrome was never my default, although I've had it installed almost since day 1. I'm always curious to see what gets added to each browser (so I have several installed) but it's proven difficult to switch me from whatever happens to be my default at any time. Way back in the day it was IE. That stuck for ages until maybe the first or second year of Firefox. That stuck for over a decade. Opera is now proving sticky, so it will be interesting to see how long it holds with me.

In terms of memory usage, I don't know. Whenever I check they all seem to be about the same. But they don't seem to have any adverse consequences on my system so I'm not bothered. Main criteria for me are overall features and usability (subjective).

So, for you it all depends on what your must-haves and must-nots are. Personally, I've found that no one browser is better than all others in all respects, so it's a package-deal.
