Hmm...I think just the opposite. I like Bittrex better because it shows the prices in USD when going to make a trade. And for me it's more user friendly.
BTW, thanks for starting this thread. I finally came to the conclusion you did and in the early stages myself. There may be others interested so this thread will benefit all. Travis has been extremely gracious in helping me navigate this stuff despite my many stupid questions.
My current goal is to figure out how to buy ICO's. Despite my many hours of looking, there seems to be no info on what exchanges are compatible with other exchanges. I "think" you MUST have a MEW to transfer to some places like Metamask. Maybe someone here can answer that?
I have a MEW and you can transfer to many ICOs using that, the problem is that MEW gets clogged during highly popular ICOs. MetaMask is preferred because it is directly connected to the ETH network. I am going through the process of starting a MetaMask now - which is a google chrome app, not just a website. I hope to be established by this weekend.
