hey guys i am back and i am getting very tired of firefox . is Falkon a good replacement? or should i go to  brave?
I think Firefox is one of the best but you can try:

    Ungoogled Chromium

    Chromium

    Librefox (Firefox fork)

    Falkon by KDE

And for a fully open-source alternative, there's always Seamonkey!


Seamonkey does everything that both Firefox and Thunderbird do, yet with thousands fewer lines of code than Firefox by itself. It's a superb choice for those looking to keep the Lite in Linux Lite.

Their true heir of the venerable Netscape Internet Suite, Seamonkey does it all and many Firefox extensions work with Seamonkey as well.


It can be added to Linux Lite by means of the Ubuntuzilla PPA.

Vivaldi is the most functional
+ a huge number of settings, work with Chrome extensions.
-  the number of buttons and funtions can confuse inexperienced users.

Opera - for those who need a VPN
+ built-in VPN, ad blocker, handy sidebar.
- few extensions, useless built-in crypto wallet.

Ok, I'll add my two cents then... I was pushing for Palemoon, until a few updates ago when it became really laggy on the Youtube website (Firefox based versus Google?... Nah, a company would not cripple the competitors, that would be politically incorrect. *wink wink* ;)
Anyways, I too am trying to find a LOW-RESSOURCE (yes, caps) replacement. Its crucial to save 2GB RAM machines. 32 bits, even better.
I will report the progress of my Quest here.

I'll go hug a tree now... ;)

You can start a flame thread with this kind of question. ;)
I would Google the question and check the reviews/comparisons for your specific needs.
Edit : corrected atrocious typos. ;)

I only started using Linux (LL) a few days ago, so this post is delayed.

I don't use Chrome browser because of privacy concerns; Firefox is said to be far better in this respect.

Ean.

I have moved to vivaldi. Still kinda like firefox but at least they don't want to censor the net.


Vivaldi is my main general purpose browser bcos it has blocking built in.
For corporate use, its firefox... V 86 and 87 are better with ram

I "was" a fan of Chromium, but then moved to Firefox. Recently learned of Waterfox and I am quite fond of it. Quite fast, supports Firefox addons, and can be hardened fairly easily pretty much how you can Firefox. By default, it seems to be pretty decent compared to Firefox. I hate how pretty much every browser that can render pages decently uses so much RAM. I mean jeez, does a browser really need a GB of RAM for a few webpages? Waterfox seems to be a little better on RAM compared to Firefox and a lot better on RAM compared to Chromium and Falkon apparently (just tried Falkon a few minutes ago).

+1 for Brave. It's better and faster than even "un-Googled Chromium" and blocks all kinds of unwanted bloat, flash, and ads.
