what web browser does /g/ use?
i was always satisfied with Firefox, and i heard about waterfox a while ago, so i decided to try it out - can't say i'm unsatisfied
I want a new browser for Linux
>lightweight and fast
I'd go for a Chrome fork for simplicity, but I can't tile tabs vertically, which makes it unusable to me.
Damn, Waterfox's logo is really shitty now since I last used it
I generally find later version of Firefox kind of sluggish.
I'm on IceCat right now, and I'm liking its speed and lightweight, but a lot of features of webpages are broken.
I've found a guy who compiles builds with codec and sync support so I can watch any video. I have absolutely no problems, no crashes, no hangs, no retarded memory leaks and for example, it uses just as much RAM and CPU as Palemoon, Cyberfox and Waterfox (I know because I tested it). No reason to go for Opera or Vivaldi, they're just Chromium with glaze. If you're paranoid about privacy, you can go for Iridium, it's just as snappy as Chromium, but it has muh privacy adjustments.
pic related is how most websites look today
>wasting empty wallpaper space
If anything, having tabs on the side allows for better vertical space, which is much more valuable than horizontal space today.
Waterfox UI and logo took a nosedive a while ago. Are they trying accentuate the arrow? I'm not /gd/ or anything but that is one of the worst logos I've seen worse than that Olympic dick up the ass logo that got scrapped.
I use palemoon mostly now but I still got waterfox for keeping my porn tabs open on.
You use a meme browser that was started by a 16 year old, who did/does nothing more than compile Firefox using ICC, and has an "Official Sub Reddit" as it's only discussion/support forum?
firefox with Umatrix, http by default, ublock origin, noscript (with alow scripts globally on) and disable hello pocket reader addons for when i look at girls on the internet and Konqueror for everything else pretty much.
People who've used TOR have been caught. Are you really worried the NSA is interested into you fapping to lolis and shitposting on chans? Do you really think you can be completely private? Because using mememoon is hardly enough. If you're serious about muh botnet, I hope you're running your browser via VM and behind several VPNs
No, nothing wrong, just don't browse while being logged in into your Gmail account. Use ublock and https everywhere and you have nothing to worry about. Again, if you're worried about privacy but still want all the benefits and performance of Chromium, use Iridium. If you want to be on the bleeding edge of browser development, use Chromium itself. There's absolutely no reason to suffer browsing with a shitty, outdated ESR version of Firefox such as Palemoon.
I don't think you know what projecting is. He was making a statement on how just simply using a half-assed forked browser isn't going to stop "le botnet boogeyman"
You're just like those people who through around "literally" out of context and in everything they say.
Is it like, actual, confirmed botnet? Or is it just Google's version of a botnet. I don't mind selling myself out to Google, but I don't want my computer compiling code for Russians/Chinese while I sleep.
- firefox stable for most shit
- opera beta for academic research
- midori for guests
- safari for most shit
- omniweb for academic research
- nothing, because windows a shit and i only use it when i have to boot into minixp off a usb for tech work
Some of /g/'s tinfoil fedora wearers throw around botnet as a meme because Chrome is closed source.
