Safari is my default browser. I use it unless I have a specific reason not to - e.g., a particular webpage isn't working correctly, or I'm using the Pearson education software that I need for work (which requires Chrome). I don't use a lot of extensions - mainly the ABP ad blocker, Honey (which tracks price changes on Amazon and many other stores and searches for promo codes), and Grammarly. I like having my bookmarks and passwords synced between my laptop, desktop, phone, and iPad. I'm surprised that others find it slow. That has never been my experience. Also, Apple supports Safari. If I have a question or a problem, I can call the 800 number or stop into the store and get help for no charge. I don't think there's another browser that offers that kind of support.
What would I use in place of Adobe Flash? I'm a computer dummyAdobe Flash is a security nightmare, not to mention that it hogs system resources. It is simply an outdated technology, and even Adobe has scheduled it for end-of-life in 2020. Numerous times over the past few years, all of the major browsers have blocked it from running due to vulnerabilities.
