We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

@sa0bse I use firefox, however I'm pretty sure Chrome uses Blink which is a fork of Webkit is it not? is it different enough to include it as separate?

@codeawayhaley As far as I've heard many frontend developers tend to think about older webkit and specifically Safari as "The new IE6" because it's so bad compared to everything else. So I think it deserves it's own option.

@sa0bse @codeawayhaley Interestingly there was a fair bit of disruption when WebKit moved to version 2 and added sandboxing. That's when Googled forked off Blink, and Midori took a bit of a haitus.

WebKit2 I find works perfectly well, though there are some rarely used JavaScript APIs it doesn't support like WebRTC or service workers. Then again I'm not interested in stress testing it, I think browsers are too complicated already!
