For what it’s worth, I am beginning to love Firefox. Still use IE from time to time.

Oops.  Firefox is not a chromium-based browser, thank god.  It has a normal type menu structure with file, edit, etc on a menu bar, unlike chromium browsers which bury most of what you need in one giant menu you have to cursor down through.

Hi, Judy. As Brian said, a Chromium browser is one that is written in a specific code (Chromium). That being said, what is also meant is that Chromium browsers, (Edge, Firefox, Waterfox, Google Chrome, etc.) have a general look and feel to them. If you use one of them, and then install and use another Chromium browser, they all seem to look and feel similar as you use them.

Brave is an excellent choice, and its built in ad blocking and privacy features make it ideal for a screen reader user.

You can do a web search on whatever browser it is you want to download, along with the word download, and it's almost certain to be the first result returned.

Brave, the Chrome browser, and new Chromium-based Edge are all based on Chromium, and, thus, are very, very similar to use.  If you know one of them well, you know at least 90%, if not more, of what you need to know to jump in to the others.

Waterfox is a spin-off of Firefox.
