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.

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. ;)

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... ;)

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.

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.

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

I use Seamonkey a bit different but a-okay once you get used to it.
