What browsers do you guys use to surf the web?
I use firefox developer edition so i can install my won addons.

What other tools do you use to get around the net?


This does not belong in transportation lol. I use old builds of SeaMonkey and Otter Browser. Upgrading is a pain. What are your add-ons you've written for? I'd be surprised if there isn't just a setting in about:config you can switch so you can do that with regular Firefox.


Chrome is good for those who submit to the Google regime.


Because of the integration into Google services? If not you can always use unGoogled Chrome/Iridium/Inox(for Arch). OP's never coming back to reveal the add-ons he's written, is he?



One made youtube show the newest comments first by default.
Ik; youtube comments are the lowest of the low,
but i'd rather see the ones that are more recent than the ones people vote on.
Youtube changed since i made it,
so it doesn't work anymore.

One runs sentiment analysis on text you write to it and plots the results over time.
This was just for fun: a hackathon project i did with some other people.


I use luakit and I think it's really comfy. It has vim keybindings for browsing which is the most important for me. I really like the fact that it's extensible in Lua so you can write your own things if you need to. Really recommend it.


if you had to compare it to qutebrowser or hacked up surf, how does it compare? I've been loving simplicity and straighforwardness of qutebrowser and it's love for vim bindings, makes web browsing much less soykafty, but the fact that those who compile qute with webkit as their browser engine are secondary class citizen and that it uses python puts me off.


qutebrowser is quite comfy




It's pretty comfy


Chrome is the most comfy, fast and best browser. Tor isn't great, but it's used for the dank web.
So use Chrome.

You can't be serious.


firefox with a bunch of configuration; mostly from https://github.com/pyllyukko/user.js


Question for the thread, would you guys use a browser that paid you $1 a day?


I use GNU/IceCat, out of privacy concerns and because it is free software


I'd rather pay for a quality browser.

pic related; using any other browser is unbearably painful


What are some of the options for this?


That's fine and dandy if you only need a minimal browsing experience.
There aren't any. People don't appreciate the price of quality and getting what you pay for anymore.


>That's fine and dandy if you only need a minimal browsing experience
uh no, links is fine and dandy if you only need a minimal browsing experience, qutebrowser supports all your latest web """features""" and (((standards))) since it uses up to date (albeit debotneted) chromium code in the backend


Does that include preventing certain scripts from running?
As well as a simple enough adblocker of sorts?


>Does that include preventing certain scripts from running?
yep, here's a working umatrix implementation: https://gitlab.com/jgkamat/jmatrix
>As well as a simple enough adblocker of sorts?
qutebrowser uses a simple hosts file ad blocking method, but there's also:

(haven't tried this myself yet because I'm a lazy faggot)


This is exactly the attitude that means we're stuck with Firefox forever.


How long has everyone been using Firefox here? Even if it's not your "main" browser.
2005 here.


This, ungoogled chromium is pretty comfy desu.


Do you have a reliable link to download?



Do I need to do any tweaks with this or is it good to go from the source?
Sorry for the dumb questions.


Opera is a good browser, it suck too much ram but i can have all my things in the cloud so i can access it wherever i want


*sips* Opera Presto now that was a good browser…


This guy understand me


Have you guys tried Opera GX yet?


No, have you?


I haven't yet. But I may decide to give it a try in the next day or two. More or less have been curious about it in the meanwhile.




I'm still happy with Firefox. There's some minor nuisances, but overall I find it pretty good.


Same, I'm happy with Firefox for the most part. But I am interested in trying something new. I'd like to eventually replace it with something a lot better for my overall needs.


Waterfox. It's good.


-I use Brave for YouTube and Anime
-I use Tor for research and imageboards


Depends on what for.
Ungoogled Chromium for my botnet stuff like G Drive or Slack which I need for my job, that's why they have their own browser I don't want google to read out any cookies.
Falkon for all nonbotnet stuff like imageboards and Tor when digging deeper.

Before I distrohopped I just brave for the botnet stuff (bc the inbuild adblocker was good when going on yt) and chromium for the normal stuff. But fuck brave. Not sure if I'm going to stick to Falkon but it seems okay, haven't really read into it yet though. I prefer it over Brave because I feel like a faggot with software like that.


wats wrong with brave


I use ungoogled-chromium too. It's really lightweight and fast compare to Firefox. Aside from that, if you really want Firefox-like UI without botnet, try Librewolf if you're lazy or harden Firefox yourself


It just feels like soyftware. I see that they have useful inbuild adblocker and stuff, but you know something is off, if the logo looks like a it should attract fortnite-players. Also it's build on chromium so ungoogled-chromium is a better option, as it will always be the best chromium-based option. Brave really is just a good browser (imo) if you want to grind it's BAT, which kinda is the biggest cuckold-move in cyberhistory, as your sidehustle would be to let corpos rewire your brain into knowing their products and brands for virtual money that is owned by a big corpo.
Also there was that donation incident, where brave just "took" donations that were donated to creators via brave wallet.
>When Bitcoinist reported on the ability to tip content creators directly from Brave browser, that was a positive thing, right? Actually, not so much when it uses creators’ names and photos, to collect donations ‘for them’, without their consent.

Thanks for the advice, I'll check it out sooner or later, chummer.
