If you want to do things quickly and cleanly from your Linux system Firefox is still substantially superior in flexibility and personal security.

I'm using both; FF 86.0.1 and Chromium 89.  FF has improved since last version I used it which was 70 something, however, they still haven't got rid of the "some script is slowing down firefox" or some similar wording message, which is not only annoying but FF comes unresponsive and freezes. Often times I've had to jump to a tty and kill FF from there, I've never had this problem with chromium, ever! It doesn't happen too often, fortunately, but when it does it's very annoying. Some sites I visit don't work as good as they do in chromium. MS Edge is very bloated IMO. Maybe it is just my setup and low specs pc, who knows ... fact is, chromium works like a charm for me. I also use links2 occasionally when need/want to just find text very quickly without annoying distractions, now that's a great browser; simple, very, very fast and it just works. The downside is some sites might be a challenge to navigate given it doesn't support "modern technologies"  http://links.twibright.com/
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

Yesterdays update to MS Edge is not reporting a release file as yet. News has it that the update was very minor and perhaps the MS devs didn't realize that update protocols for Linux won't allow for just not packaging a release when the server expects a certain schedule, or it just slipped their minds. In any case they seemed to have not prepared a new update release. This is inconvenient for LL updates because you will have to uncheck the MS repo to complete your normal updates. I have sent feedback to the devs.
