I just got my first Android phone so switched from Firefox to Chrome on my computer. It is actually better than Firefox so I am pretty happy. Fast and has a lot of cool features plus my multimedia keys work in Play Music which is nice.
I used Opera 12 before that, and Firefox is the only browser that can partly emulate that browser's functionality.
I use Lynx running on Eshell through Emacs which I run on tmux for maximum efficiency.
Firefox because Chrome Canary eats my memory like there's no tomorrow. I really need that 8GB RAM kit off Amazon for my laptop already, but I'm poor, otherwise I would've ordered it a long time ago.
I tried Gentoo, but I just really didn't like the source-based installs. Maybe I'm just bad at it but I was always running into obscure compilation failures that took way too long to fix compared to Arch's "just install and go".
Chrome. Nearly 100% of people I know use Chrome. You guys can pretend that Chrome is horrendous and gay, but the world doesn't care. We only use the browser for Facebook and porn, not the weird shit yall niggas do
The affairs of normies do not concern me.
I seek purity in mind, purity in spirit, and purity in my choices of software.
If that means I have to be really autistic to do so, then it is autism that I shall embrace.
>Look at how elite I am
>I look like those guys from the matrix
>The logo has the same outline as me
Just werks. I really like how Gecko engines render webpages (particularly my homepage) and it runs generally quicker for me. Not to mention I do almost zero configuration to get it up and running since it doesn't have any builtin adware.
Iceweasel. Because after IceCat it's the best version of Firefox without all the bloat and telemetry and it's maintained and shipped by my favourite choice of distribution.
>Does IceCat really stay up to the latest firefox with pocket/hello disabled? I did not know about this.
Yes, without the bloat. It's also based on the Firefox ESR releases for stability, but therefore also without the bleeding edge features. IceCat does have more privacy enhancing add-ons, though.
Cool, mate. Iceweasel never let me down, though. It's is based on the ESR branch too, btw.
Why? Mozilla is like chemotherapy for the web, battling the cancer of shit like Google that exist only to harvest data and serve ads. I like the organization, and their browser doesn't use 4 gigs of memory.
I run Chromium with:
Then I just make sure I don't accept cookies or 3rd party bullshit. I would use Firefox but it eats up memory and bogs my computer down to where it's almost unusable.
Palemoon - /4chan
Firefox - most regular browsing
Chrome - Porn (mah flash player)
IE - work websites because it's 2005
Edge - once when I booted a laptop and didn't know what was habbening
Uh... performance is the only reason why a browser would be better than another one?
I can custom-tailor Firefox to my personal preferences in ways that I cannot on Chrome. How is that not better?
firefox. no other browser allows you to run your own sync server to keep your passwords, history and bookmarks out of the botnet.
it also works consistently on linux, windoze and android.
I have 64 bit system and stock Firefox started to act funny (namely: freezing in 4chan catalogue). Also, I got pretty fed up with all the changes Mozilla was doing with each update.
It's a browser, you'll have that no matter what.
Even w3m is considered bloated
>beta testing unstable shit
It's not beta, it's a different branch geared towards developing web-pages (something i've been doing) which happens to be more up to date.
It literally can't be done, memeposter. You used to be able to transplant DLLs from Chrome, but Google put a stop to it.
Feel free to post your method if you feel you've discovered something the rest of the internet has missed. :^)
Welcome to the modern internet, grandpa.
Firefox, because of addons:
HTTPS by default:
NoScript Security Suite:
Disable Plugin & Mimetype Enumeration:
InstantFox Quick Search:
Reddit Enhancement Suite:
VLC Youtube Shortcut:
Classic Theme Restorer:
Theme Font & Size Changer:
Google Reverse Image Search:
ImTranslator - Google Translator, Dictionary, TTS:
>tfw I'm the only one who uses comodo dragon
It's a pile of shit desu senpai but being able to sync all my bookmarks to one account accross 3 platforms is too convenient, and I've been with gmail too long to ditch it without a massive effort at this point.
>Blink based, which gives it a high stability
>Fast (you can put Turbo mode)
>Opera + Chrome addons
>Good privacy settings
>Translator built in
>Supports modern video formats
>I've just engaged turbo mode on my browser
>can't catch me now faggots
how fucked up is the latest firefox release? can it be un-fucked or should I just stick with an old version of switch to palemoon
k-melon may have a dated UI and features but it still gets the job done and runs so efficiently. it lets you browse the modern web on old hardware where other browsers would fail. it let me browse smoothly on my old x41.
It's just a fucking browser, edgelord. If you've never had to use Internet Explorer or Netscape or Safari for something, you haven't been lurking very long. Some shit just fucking begs for IE, and even if they didn't, not all of us just got on the internet in 2015.
Nice. I have that too, but haven't tried it yet. I'll give it a shot.
Chrome because I'm not a delusional faggot who bitches about "botnets" and jacks off to how niche hipster I can be.
Also pretty awesome for moving between different devices and having the same bookmarks and being able to quickly find a tab I had open on a different device.
firefox (waterfox) too many extensions that I can't give up. too important for me.
even tried to migrate to chromium but couldn't find enough of the extensions. I know chrome ain't the fastest but hopefully it'll get there.
I would use firefox but after having a certain amount of bookmarks ( I have a fucking shit ton of them) it starts to lag and memory starts to fluctuate.
I guess I need to put them in folders. does that help?
