Microsoft Edge

There is a new version with a stylized 'e' that almost looks like an 'o' that you have to download manually.  The acid3 test has gone backwards to 96% vis a vis the browser comparison chart on the wikipedia. 

But the multiprocess support is perfect!  It doesn't crash! 

I am using the AdBlockPlus browser extension.   The only one that works right with secure sites.

To be honest, with the update, and the manual update to Windows from Windows update along with the latest .NET framework, the display looks a bit MacIntoshish.

Also, Edge has extensions, most of which are pop up blockers.  The one that I use now is Adguard Adblocker.

After some experimentation I have discovered that AdBlocker is ghosted so that sites will not know it's there.

Er, I meant "stealthed" not "ghosted."

Because if the pop blocker isn't stealthed, you'll sometimes get a pop up indicating you have a pop up blocker.  Which means you can browse CNN in peace.
