Decisions, Decisions - Which Internet Browser To Use

I have been using Internet Explorer as my default Internet browser. I've been apprehensive of changing to another just because I was happy with IE and am quite familiar with it by now and don't need any problems in switching to a new one. However, it seems that changes in browsers have caught up with me as I have noticed that certain web pages no longer load properly with IE. So, out of necessity, I will be changing my default browser. Now the question is to which one do I switch. The choices of which I am aware are: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox. 

I already have Firefox on my laptop and use it now and then. It's okay but my fingerprint reader application for logging onto websites does not work with it. Then again, I am not sure if it will work with anything other than IE. I have tried it with MS Edge and when I swipe my finger to select a site to open it goes right to IE to open what site I am seeking. Maybe if I reset my default browser it will work with one of the other browsers and then again maybe not. If I lose that function, I will miss it sorely, hell I may have to start trying to actually remember passwords and logon IDs.

Anyway, I am hoping some of my readers can be helpful in guiding me toward my selection of a new Internet browser. What are you folks using and why do you prefer it over the others?

Thanks,
Glenn B

Take a look at opera. Has a VPN setting that's handy.
Chrome is spyware. Microsoft, ditto. Firefox is a decent browser.
