Playing the game: Which browser do you prefer???

Since hearing that support for Windows 7 will end in Jan 2020,
I've decided to take advantage of a sale and purchased a new PC which should be arriving soon!   :#  

In the meantime, I'm making a checklist of  ''things to do'' to make the setup/install as headache-free smooth as possible. 
Windows 10, SSD, anti-virus, browsers... hmmm.
...Which browser does everyone prefer to play Big Farm?
  Edge?  Firefox?  Chrome?

second, by imitation, which is easiest;
and third, by experience, which is the bitterest."

    I use Firefox, works like a charm for me.

    The simple answer is "Whatever works best for you". With a brand new PC, you should find Chrome, Firefox and Opera will work fine. I personally am not a big fan of Edge but it also runs the game fine for me. Where people run into problems is with older, less powerful PC's. The variations in how the PC is setup, from motherboard, chip, graphics card, type and size of hard drive, etc. will affect how things run.  

    Friends of mine had troubles with their PC's, so I set up some testing with them to prove the point. I had my well setup PC running all four browsers, with four separate games, BigFarm of course, all running at the same time without any dramas. So, in your case, I suggest it will all come down to personal preference.

    Opera for me too, I sometimes use Chrome. Edge is the worst.

    Opera, Opera, Opera. :*
    I quickly read through a few articles which compare the most popular web browsers and I can see why Opera is a top choice for playing Big Farm:

    A website performed various benchmark tests and one of their results caught my eye:
    "Interestingly, Chrome and Edge Chromium fell way behind in the HTML5 compliance test. Opera comes in first and Firefox in second."

    I agree with the others.  I've tried the other browsers, but Opera works the best for me.  :)
