it'll probably be fine to keep using ungoogled chromium, people always find a way. if not, by the time manifest v3 actually happens, firefox might actually have usable site compatibility. the only reason i'm not using it right now is because they broke context menu ricing on the stable channel.

Colored hair people control Chrome/Chromium too, but somehow people still believe Google is a conservative Christian white man company and not the quintessential woke behemoth and I still have no idea how such a thought pattern is even possible given the plethora of freely accessible information about Google's politics.

I'll switch from Ungoogled Chromium to a fork of Firefox that doesn't have Mozilla pozzware built-in. Either Librewolf or Waterfox I guess. Until manifest V3 is required I'll still be on Ungoogled Chromium. Maybe it won't be so bad and it'll stick around in dev builds for a couple years longer.

I migrated to Furryfox, at this point Chromium browsers are my boot loader for Google Suite's crap and some shitty stuff like Figma, Lucidchart or Teams for work. If i knew about an extension that let me open links on Firefox from Chromium's context menu, i'd use it.
MAYBE, i'll try luck with the newest build of a V2 compatible Chromium that is still around for that use case, but i don't know if is possible to portabilize those like you can do with FF.

i dont usually remember how shitty is internet without an adblocker, just when someone tries to show me a youtube video and ads keep popping, but the other day ive restarted my pc and adblocker did not load while recovering many tabs and i experienced the same sites i usually visit and the experience was utter crap, 50% of the ads are straight up scams and they use a lot of the screen and a lot of resources too.

Chromium is open-source. Google is not worried about this, they know nobody else has the developing power they have. The other browsers will continue to copy and paste the Chromium code. Google accepts that some browsers will not have binary blobs from them and in exchange they can shape the web.

While this is kind of bad, there are other browsers out there and most normies I know already don't use an adblocker and that's assuming they browse the web on anything other than mobile anyway.

>The rankings were revealed in a research paper published by Trinity College Dublin computer scientist Doug Leith. He analyzed and rated the privacy provided by Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Brave, Edge, and Yandex. Specifically, the study examined the browsers’ sending of data—including unique identifiers and details related to typed URLs—that could be used to track users over time. The findings put the browsers into three categories with Brave getting the highest ranking, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari receiving a medium ranking, and Edge and Yandex lagging behind the rest.

I don't know, everytime I reload the 4chan catalogue it has to wait like 1 second and then it auto refreshes, while in chrome it's instant. Same with image loading, firefox just takes more time to render the whole png while chrome is instant.
Youtube also takes a while to load the thumbnails and start the video.
>>
>>88780385
Just tested and 4chan catalogue loads instantly on both, thumbnails included. Note that when 4chanX is enabled, it's a bit slower.
Youtube is probably coded in a way to run worse on non Chrome browsers. They're dirty like that. Try changing the user agent to impersonate a Chrome browser.

>Youtube is probably coded in a way to run worse on non Chrome browsers
I don't really care if that's the actual issue, the fact is, I'm not gonna gimp myself and go out of my way to be nice to some other free browser. I'm not paying for any of them so I'll choose the faster one. When Manifest V3 comes around I will switch to firefox permanently though, or until Chromium browsers become unfucked.

It's the other way around dumbfuck. The faster the CPU, the less difference you notice.
Jesus Christ this board is fucked.

>I'm not paying for any of them so I'll choose the faster one.
If speed is your only metric of what a good browser is, go right ahead and join the cattle on Chrome.
And still, this video shows a mixed bag of results between FF and Chrome, so you might even be wrong in your speed claims:

Maybe the 4chanX developer has a slower codepath for Firefox than Chrome? I don't know, ask there.

I'm open to criticism of Brave, I think all fanboys are retarded, but I don't often see valid criticisms of it.

Most critiques of Brave's privacy stem from its BAT revenue program and alternate ad system (which you can largely opt out of). In every other way, Brave is consistently rated better on privacy, and adds new features to advance user privacy at least monthly. Try using it instead of being a zealot.

Their broader goals are ambitious and may be a viable alternative to current invasive, personalized ad models. For what it's worth, I wish it wasn't based on Chromium, but if it gains enough support I can see it becoming independent of Jewgle. They'll certainly have the incentive if Google keeps heading in this direction.

>>88783038
My only real criticism of Brave is I wish they would flesh out the shields more. You still can't choose individual things to block or allow right? They are either on or off? I use custom filters in Ublock as well to hide some Youtube stuff like Youtube shorts section on the front page. This filter doesn't seem to work through Braves shields though. Other than that, I tend to agree. If you're going to use a Chromium browser and care about privacy, Brave is the way to go.
