Who the fuck made the OP image?

but OP, Opera gained a considerable ammount of marketshare

OP image is garbage. i dont understand why people want to echo chamber everything. just use what you like and stay quiet.

Its ok. i dont recomend it unless its already installed on your OS. as much as i love FOSS i dont recomend non tech people to use it. the masses need a browser that is always in active development and has the funds to do that said development. Firefox and Chrome are my recomendations for anyone. i personally use opera, waterfox, firefox. maybe a bit of midori or iceweasel for old netbooks.
>>
>>61782156
What about Vivaldi? As far as Chromium/Blink forks go, it seems pretty good.
>>
>>61783241
yeah its more secure than i2p and freenet. if you want more security. you might as well set up a encrypted USB and CD only use club and send information by hand
>>
>>61783313
what is the point of vivald again?
>>
>>61783374
Replacing Opera (since that was bought by the Chinese) as the browser for those that want Chrome without using Chrome.
>>
>>61783313
its fucking ugly
>>
>>61783428
i liked opera before they adopted Chromium. it had its own mail and torrent client built in and pinnable tabs. great browser.

That's a fine looking animal.

it's very hard to navigate, open new links, etc
they should add mouse support and more security features

Isn't IceCat exactly the same as Firefox but just with the branding changed??
>>
>>61783224
>waterfox has many shit stuff removed
you can remove that shit yourself
>it's also fast 64bit
in my experience waterfox was slower than even pale moon
>>
>>61785201
You're confusing it with Iceweasel.
>>
>>61785232
I personally use Firefox 32-bit but I consider waterfox superior because:
>Removal of Sponsored Tiles on New Tab Page
>Disabled Web Runtime (deprecated as of 2015)
>Removed startup profiling
>>
>>61782156
Chromium without google wins handsdown .. i even have disabled flash and other addon and its masterace ... firefox is assshit since they decided to suck his developer cycle
>>
>>61785201
It's Firefox ESR with branding changes, some tweaked preferences and bundled addons.

On ad blocking nothing can beat beat firefox and ad blocker devloper edition with noscript and flash disabled u can fuck any wwebpage fornfun

What's the advantage of Waterfox over Pale moon?

I remember I used both a while back simultaneously to try and decide upon a winner, and I ended up choosing Pale Moon. Can't for the life of me remember why, though. Too long ago mind you.
>>
>>61796883
>>61782156

PS: What's the go with Iridium and why is it so high up there?
>>
>>61794949
Disabling cache writing to HDD, that is
>>
>>61796883
Waterfox is optimized for 64bit systems
>>61796897
Iridium is Chromium with everything Google-related stripped
>>
>>61782156
Between Waterfox Iridium and QupZilla Wich is the best?
>>
>>61796943

Well, Pale Moon is 64 bit as well? And in fact I'm 99% sure it's only available in 64 bit, so I would say that it too is optimised for 64 bit systems. So what's the difference?

I can see why the Iridium thing would appeal though.

Is there a way to swap out an existing chrome install with iridium without losing anything?
>>
>>61797012
I believe Pale Moon is forked from a much older version than Waterfox, so I suppose the differences would be mostly visual.
And you could install Iridium alongside Chrome, import bookmarks and settings, then uninstall Chrome.
>>
i think your list is a incomplete

i spotted some important missing vars...

network.captive-portal-service.enabled - set to false
browser.urlbar.trimURLs - set to false
keyword.enabled - set to false
>>
I'm using Nightly right now and feels really good.
