Is it the browser that sucks or is it the web that sucks. Now I'm not oldfag enough, but I do think there was a time when the average webpage wasn't riddled with random bloated scripts, useless ads and complicated css layouts. Browsers will only get more and more bloated and slow to keep up with the ever expanding complicated mess the web is growing into.

It's the web that sucks. Specifically when web 2.0 happened. Turn on no-script and 3/4 sites break. There's far too much reliance on java instead of following the KISS principle.

Chrome is pretty sweet right now. Don't know when but some time ago, they added an optional function to not load tabs unless you open them for the first time, so I can keep some YouTube videos open, some other websites close all tabs and when I start up chrome only the last tab I had open loads and no 6 YouTube tabs which start to scream

>>52466275
How is "millions and millions of loc" a negative. Supporting decades of web standards takes millions of lines of code, yes. The web is basically an operating system inside your existing OS nowadays, it's hardly surprising web engines are complex.
>>

Firefox isn't fine. It leaks memory like crazy
>>
>>52466275
EdgeHTML might be the best..
>>
>>52468864
Having such ridiculous amounts of code severely limits the number of people with the time and skill to understand and work on it, to the point where it might as well be closed source and the potential for undetected bugs is much higher. Also, as demonstrated by some of the other engines on the list, those millions and millions of loc (eg Firefox is about 14mil) are about two orders of magnitude more than necessary.

It's pointless to try anything with browsers until we cleanse the internet with fire. There are too many outdated technologies that we're only now beginning to stand up to. We've never started over, just tacked more and more bullshit onto a system that was only made to view text files.

>>52468990
Dillo (85k loc) and Netsurf (284k loc) both support most of html/css and the latter also a bit of javascript. So I'd say yes.

Palemoon vs seamonkey.

Pale is lighter, more web browser. Seamonkey is trying to cram multiple programs into one, like mozilla suite. I don't need the built in ftp/irc etc. If that is all it has to offer then palemoon is the way to go.

But with pale moon will I have to go through the same processes of changing privacy measures that are required in FF (all the about:config telemetry, predictive loading etc) or do those features not exist or are already turned off?

Just trying to work out the full reasoning behind the need to switch if most bad features can be turned off in FF. Yes I get that mozilla will soon kill all that made it good years ago, but until then it just works.

Firefox has (2015) smaller mem footprint and executes js faster, botnet can be deactivated and has more useful addons but as the api will be changed it may change as well.

I hate firefox so fucking much (I hate chrome more) but I can't switch from firefox because it has the addons I want. If someone would just make a blank slate webbrowser with unlimited addon extendability it would be literally perfect.

It's not really about what browser you like anymore. It's about which one you can tolerate. I'm using Chromium, but Chromium doesn't have the option to delete all cache/history on exit. So my shortcut has "--incognito" which is not a perfect solution because Google still tracks you.
