bitcoin explorers churns out the same info, but out of curiosity which explorer do you normally use, and any reasons?

if you care too much then run your own full node to get the real data without any third party in the middle and have a full copy of the blockchain for yourself.

if you don't care then it doesn't matter what explorer you are using really. they are almost all the same. and i believe majority are using!

there are many blockchain explorers out there , buy my favourite is , becuase its the oldest one, and dont have much distracting ads on site, and site loads very fast.
other than that, it shows btc amount in USD also., so it helps me to understand how much of transaction worth of in USD and i dont have to go to google and do xx btc to usd.

plus they have their own wallet system , i like that too, you can create as many wallets and each wallet can have unlimited receiving addreses, so nobody knows who is receiving the funds.,

when i first came here , i created a thread for asking how to create site like as i really liked that site and wanted to start something simmilar,

you can check this topic where i asked others to see what they said, there is also a list of some of the explorers others have used in there and also you should move you topic to services discussion board.

My favorite is still, I know that the wallet is a a bit messy because of all the hacks it has had, but i dont care about the wallet because i dont use online wallets. If you leave that behind and focus on the explorer service, then the explorer is in my opinion the best, because it's clean and simple and that is what important for me in an explorer. It was also the first I ever used so im just used to it and the other options are a bit confusing to me.
