    I have been using the Chrome browser for 7-8 years or more, but I recently became aware that you don't get very far being a Sportsman or SportsWoman. For instance you can't shop for firearms or even purchase a hunting or fishing license using Chrome, at least thats what I found last night.

    So I'm wondering what you folks use? I don't even know what all browsers are available. Are there any that are aimed specifically at serving the Sportsman?

    Thanks in advance to anyone offering help.

    I literally just pulled up Cabelas and was looking at scary black rifles just to check. I am using Chrome and had zero problems. Must be something with your settings as the previous post mentioned.

    Try this go to settings click on advanced if the buttons are all turned on you most likely have filtered content .Check each category and turn off the ones that you do not want .

    I browse with Firefox and search with Duckduckgo. None of the coastal censorship and sponsored ads on top of what I wanted to find.

    Are you on your personal computer or your work machine? I worked for a company that had filters on our server that wouldn't allow us to search for certain items, especially firearm related

    Three are unchecked:
    help Google protect from dangerous sites unchecked
    do not track also unchecked
    use a prediction service to help complete searches also unchecked


    I also downloaded Firefox, but I don't know how to navigate very well, so I don't know if it will last.

    Firefox. I don't care if Google tracks me. I got nothing to hide....
    Firefox has great ad blockers too.
