    I am using Google Chrome on a PC as my go to browser. Are there better options out there and if so, can you give your opinions as to why?

    Absolutely better, no. Better for you, possibly. It really just depends on what you're after.

    In general if you want a browser that you can customize as you like and kit out with an array of extensions, go for Firefox.
    Chrome is probably best for getting out of your way and letting you interact with the website. It's also meant to be exceptionally fast (I think that's mostly in terms of how quickly it executes Javascript)
    If you have any particular requirements, you'll want particular browsers. There are browsers that work only with text, browsers that speak out the pages audiably, browsers hardened for security, and generally options to fit most people's needs. If there were a best browser, there would only be one.
