trannyfox performance is horrible
(ungoogled) chromium ui/ux is horrible
brave is crypto botnet
vivaldi would be perfect... but its proprietary

modern web is just too bloated. so much so that even the suckless guys gave up on it.

I think the new Firefox GUI will be fine.
There are millions normies and what not on Windows 7 + Chrome, two weeks or so from there's Debian 11 + Firefox 89 as a replacement and upgrade.
Have to choose between Mate, XFCE, LXDE, LXQt, that's the annoying part.

Opera and sometimes tor.

>>81454692
Vivaldi is just too good to not use it. I forced myself to switch to firefox after few months with vivaldi because vivaldi is proprietary, but I feel like a cripple without mouse shortcuts, such incredible customization, this masterpiece card grouping, my own photos in new tab and so on. Wanted to be cool open source user, but now I can't do this. It's just impossible to use any other browser now

Qutebrowser. Uses the same rendering engine as chrome so you keep all the website functionality, built-in adblocker, completely usable from just your keyboard. UI is a lot nicer in my opinion. All web browsers are ultimately shit though

really loved Netscape back in the day. I wasn't an MS hater exactly, but I couldn't stand IE. Still love the Netscape name and brand (if that matters). It's a shame it's gone.

Netscape became Firefox (ok) that became Firefox 2 (pretty damn good) that became Frefox 3 (oh no) that became modern Firefox (garbage)

>>81457731
what now?
SeaMonkey and Palemoon devs can't keep up with modern standards (I don't blame them).
Is every browser just shit (modern Firefox) and shit (chrome based) now?

Qutebrowser. It's completely libre software, and you can even configure it to use Tor and disable javascript.

qtwebengine uses Blink retard.

and firefox uses gecko, what's your point

>>81458565
....Blink was developed specifically for chromium? And is still used by chromium? So it uses the same rendering engine as chromium? Are you mentally ill?

I don't have one. I use firefox with my own rice because i've been using firefox since version 4.

Chromium based browsers are design for cloud computing and software as a service model. I'm old fashioned sooo. Fug dat.

>>81454692
I hate all web browsers. Currently using Opera on PC and Yuzu on Android.

>>81454692
Chromium because it's fast and I am a web dev who develops for this browser because it is used the most on this planet.
>>
>>81454692
Netsurf, because it's written entirely in c and can be easily ported to every platform and obscure operating system.

qutebrowser. minimal interface, totally keyboard driven. i don't care about the rest.

I don't want to use a chromium-based browser in fear of a potential Google monopoly, and i enjoy the pre-installed addons.

i haven't noticed anything wrong with it. have you actually used it in the last 3 years?

not that different from firefox and, if we're talking suckless, ui/ux is completely out the window.

Firefox 3.0. It was still lightweight while being fully standards compliant. Back before being standards compliant required massive bloat. Also no Google sponsorship or telemetry.

KHTML build of Konqueror is actually good on 90% of webshit. Haven't tried WebKit build yet (pain in the ass to build in anyBSD, haven't tried on Solaris yet).
I'm also loving Nyxt broswer extensibility (since you know CL, it's pretty straight forward), but is a thing.

For me, it's the BRAVE BROWSER™. The best internet browser. I even download the BRAVE BROWSER™ on my phone, tablet, laptop, and desktop because the BRAVE BROWSER™ is so user friendly and helps fill my crypto wallets with BAT (Basic Attention Token)

One time I asked for 3 ads to be served and they gave me three, WITH the BAT (Basic Attention Token). I said, "Wow, three for free!" and the nice friendly BRAVE® dev laughed and said, "I'm going to call you 3-for-free!". But the best part is with BAT, it's not even free for me!

Now the BRAVE BROWSER™ greets me with "hey it's 3-for-free!" and ALWAYS blocks every ad, cookie, and tracker. It's such a fun and cool atmosphere with my BRAVE BROWSER™, I use it at least 7 times a week for my daily browsing needs which include work, shitposting, school, and stalking my ex on facebook (without the trackers!).

What a great BRAVE BROWSER™

Firefox 1.5
it was when it still looked and acted like a normal/native program - it didn't draw its own shitty tabs and UI elements, instead it used the OS default UI controls. It was small fast and elegant. It wasn't a heap of shit like all the browsers are today
>>
>>81464788
No, it never did that. It was good at faking it, and also looked like a Windows 95/2000 program on Unix or Linux.

It was very good though but websites had to run on 32MB RAM and dial up then.
