What's your main browser? I use five-six browsers like it's still the 2000s because some browsers blacklist flash but are more efficient to use, while others don't blacklist things but have shitty adblock and horrible design
2 guest@cc 2020-04-01T00:16:30
I also use 4-5 browsers for similar reasons. I usually use waterfox for normal browsing, qutebrowser for maximum comfficiency, firefox for things that waterfox can't handle, and chromium if i ever need to pretend to be a normal person online or if firefox doesn't cut it.
I hate that qutebrowser doesn't work well on this site, uploading stuff always breaks so sadly no pic 4u. I read that it was a QTWebEngine problem though, so there's not much i can do about it aside from wait.
3 guest@cc 2020-04-01T03:30:09
My main browser is Brave. It's based off of Chromium but supposedly is supposed to protect your privacy. Probably a scam but at least it's not Chrome.
4 guest@cc 2020-04-01T07:52:40
Vivaldi most of the time because it has too many features I got used to, I also use firefox once in a while to see if it still sucks, and chrome for compatibility because I cba compiling chromium and gentoo doesn't provide binaries. I also tried qutebrowser for a while, it's pretty good but I can't do without extensions. I installed eaf in emacs recently too, there's a webkit browser in it; it seems pretty cool for following links from emacs and stuff like that, but it's not really integrated it in my workflow yet.
5 guest@cc 2020-04-01T12:51:18
Also using brave. It's incredibly fast and I earned like 50 bucks in imaginary currency just by browsing already. Haven't tried to pay it out yet so not sure how good that works.
6 guest@cc 2020-04-01T13:33:46
I use Brave because my computer is a potato and it has most of the features I want built-in.
7 guest@cc 2020-04-01T17:05:05

I don't trust Brave because I don't trust Eich and I don't trust blockchain.

I use vimb, which is like qutebrowser but generally works a bit worse. It uses webkit2gtk though, so there aren't qt dependencies which suits me good. As much as possible I try not to do stuff in the browser so it's not a massive issue usually.
8 guest@cc 2020-04-01T20:38:57
why don't you trust blockchain?
9 guest@cc 2020-04-01T21:49:46
i haven't seen it used in a way which has made me think "oh yeah, this is the future" to a greater extent than its made me think "oh yeah, this is using a lot of energy, is resulting in a lot of demand for gpus, and ultimately doesn't even really address the real issue." or something. thats not to say i dont think that it can have its uses, rather i havent seen them yet. i prefer to stay wary of new technologies before embracing them.

currently i find that adblock + donations / email conversations with people i appreciate suffices.
10 guest@cc 2020-04-01T22:41:08
Firefox as a daily driver, Netsurf or Lynx in a pinch and until I get fed up.
11 guest@cc 2020-04-02T10:34:49
>>10 it's a shame that netsurf has such a lot of little bits of functionality that just don't work quite right, because it's also got some really nice features.

i love its tree history.
12 guest@cc 2020-04-05T12:12:54
First, I thought ``five-six'' is the name of a defunct webbrowser project. Then you said ``4-5,'' which I thought was a typo then immediately realized that it's the numbers of webbrowsers you use. That using multiple webbrowsers is a legitimate shows is a symptom of a bad design choice: singularity+complexity.
13 guest@cc 2020-04-05T12:31:10
s/a legitimate shows/legitimate/
14 guest@cc 2020-04-05T15:53:42
Palemoon with cookies disabled. If however a website doesn't work because it strictly demands cookies or just doesn't render correctly then I switch over to Iridium.
15 guest@cc 2020-04-06T19:23:02
Firefox, obviously. I refuse to participate in the webkit/blink cabal.
16 guest@cc 2020-04-08T09:27:19
I had used Pale Moon for a few years, but I switched to Waterfox after I did a new OS installation after upgrading my PC. I forgot why I wanted to leave Pale Moon, but I think it was related to extensions..
I'm using this Mahoro theme and it's pretty nice, but I should probably find a better one that is more legible: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/automatic-maiden-mahoro/?src=search
17 guest@cc 2020-04-08T21:00:21
Same. I use Pale Moon for most things and Firefox for modern Google crap Pale Moon can't handle well, like Youtube.

Guess I'm the only chrome user here.
19 guest@cc 2020-04-11T20:51:41
I have to use chrome sometimes because it is the only installed browser on shared computers.
20 guest@cc 2020-04-11T22:18:58
Depends on which OS is on my computer.
21 guest@cc 2020-04-13T06:22:03
Does chromium count?

Looks like Firefox is in trouble: https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2020/08/11/changing-world-changing-mozilla/
> Sadly, the changes also include a significant reduction in our workforce by approximately 250 people.
guest@cc 2020-08-14T15:34:39
I will try to make better posts in the future.
guest@cc 2020-08-13T21:21:07
Your post was bad so I told you it was bad.
guest@cc 2020-08-13T20:17:22
Can you do anything other than whine about 4chan?
guest@cc 2020-08-13T18:15:16
"____ is in trouble" + link to other site + quote from other site = /v/ tier garbage
24 guest@cc 2020-08-14T02:25:48
good. hopefully it dies this time
guest@cc 2020-08-15T22:13:29
We deserve hell. In a better timeline, Eric Schmidt wouldn't have been convinced to support Chrome.
guest@cc 2020-08-14T03:42:51
Why? Firefox is the last web browser not to buy in to the Blink monopoly.
25 guest@cc 2020-08-15T05:08:27
I legitimately miss Presto.
Firefox 3.6 was the peak of the Firefox UI.
26 guest@cc 2020-08-15T19:19:23
Get Pale Moon. It is to Firefox as MATE is to GNOME. I've been using it as my main browser for years and it's fantastic.

Fair warning though; the dev team is made up of like three people, all of which are dickheads, so progress is very slow compared to most other browsers.
27 guest@cc 2020-08-15T21:20:13
Pale moon is a buggy piece of poop. On top if that, its literally the slowest browser I've ever used
28 guest@cc 2020-08-18T02:02:21
i've been trying out seamonkey, but i dont know much about it other than it seems to run okay on a resource constrained computer.
29 guest@cc 2020-08-18T02:09:46
i made that post from lynx just to see how it works submitting forms and it appears to have worked. the feedback in the browser is confusing though, i hit the cooldown when i accidentally tried to double post
30 guest@cc 2020-08-18T13:45:16
I don’t know how resource constrained your computer is, but K-Meleon is good.
31 guest@cc 2020-09-22T17:21:13
Opera GX
32 guest@cc 2020-09-25T13:46:17
Duck duck go, chrome for reverse search, and sometimes tor
33 guest@cc 2020-09-25T21:12:03
Those are search engines.
34 guest@cc 2020-09-26T00:16:34
Chrome is a browser. Its right click reverse Google image search is nice. Tor is also the name of a browser.
35 guest@cc 2020-10-02T06:07:10
So what does Waterfox have and not have over Firefox.
36 guest@cc 2020-10-03T17:01:01
Opera 12 is main browser
ungoogled chromium is second
guest@cc 2020-10-03T20:03:21
>Opera 12 in 2020
My respects.
37 guest@cc 2020-10-05T05:00:58
I use Pale Moon as my main browser. I would probably use Ungoogled Chromium as a secondary browser, although I didn't need to use it so far. Pale Moon can handle Youtube fine nowadays.
38 guest@cc 2020-10-05T13:22:59
Waterfox can use both WebExtensions (Firefox Quantum extensions) and XUL (old Firefox extensions). It cannot use UXP (Pale Moon extensions).
Waterfox got sold out to an AD company months ago. Avoid.
39 guest@cc 2020-10-05T14:03:30
Almost forgot to mention that Google makes it near impossible to solve Recaptchas on Pale Moon if not signed into a Google account. I'm not sure how Recaptcha is like on Pale Moon when signed in to a Google account since I refuse to sign in to one for now.
40 guest@cc 2020-10-06T08:35:17
Internet explorer 11
41 guest@cc 2020-10-16T14:14:21
I used to use Pale Moon for everything, but the developer decided to drop out of their Patreon revenue stream because they didn't like that Patreon made a statement in support of Black Lives Matter. Not the first weird decision made at the expense of the browser that made me jump off. I'm hoping a team of developers can come together and create a similar project with less insanity, because I'd move there in a heartbeat.

Ungoogled Chromium, though. Always preferred Firefox and hate adding to the engine's market share but it's better than faux privacy. I still like Mozilla but wish they would do better.
guest@cc 2020-10-17T20:02:19
Hatreon panders to the alt-right (they hate to be called that but that's what they are), so unless that's your audience (which for Pale Moon it isn't), you're basically committing career suicide by using it. Subscribestar is a much better alternative.
guest@cc 2020-10-17T01:10:55
Why didn't he move to Hatreon?
guest@cc 2020-10-16T19:03:56
The issue with the Pale Moon devs is that they think they know better than you. They design the browser how they want to design it and actively ignore any issues with the browser, criticism from people who use it, and plain old practical reality.

At the end of the day it's their browser and they can do what they please with it, but they've definitely shot themselves in the foot multiple times when it came to making the browser successful.

Sidethreading for off topic

There's a little project that's a Pale Moon fork called Web Browser, but it is a really tiny project with one dev and a few contributors so far. The project is slow too with no precompiled binaries yet. You will have to compile Web Browser from source. Git repo is at https://git.nuegia.net/webbrowser.git/

Pic related is from digdeeper's browsers article: https://digdeeper.neocities.org/ghost/browsers.html#webbrowser
guest@cc 2020-10-20T00:43:33
These devs are only out to cobble together a browser that suits their personal needs.
guest@cc 2020-10-19T22:47:08
Digdeeper has the same sort of attitude as the Pale Moon devs, just applied to different things. I don't trust him to make a good browser.
43 guest@cc 2020-10-19T22:03:56
why not just look at firefox's source code and convince them not to do something you don't like rather than creating 100 spinoffs that will never be updated?
guest@cc 2020-10-20T22:58:41
typical autistic programers
guest@cc 2020-10-20T00:44:54
>convince them not to do something you don't like
guest@cc 2020-10-19T22:53:20
Different people like different things.

Also, it's unfair to say that pale moon never gets updated, because it's got very little to do with the mainline Mozilla codebase at this point. It's basically its own thing.
44 guest@cc 2020-12-12T01:04:56
I use Ungoogled Chromium nowadays because everything else sucks nowadays.

lots of bundled spyware that gets reenabled every update and you'd need to mess around with a userjs script that will probably not work the next firefox update
>pale moon

devs are being hostile and the browser is adding in features the users don't want
>web browser whatever that is

dead schizo project
>alternative browsers

they still rely on chromium's engine or apple webkit and they don't have enough extension support
45 guest@cc 2020-12-24T08:15:17
They don't care about giving user options https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=606655
guest@cc 2020-12-24T09:01:52
Despite claims to the contrary, what open source project does?
46 guest@cc 2021-03-06T07:37:25
MS Edge and Waterfox if Onion then there's compromised TOR browser.
47 guest@cc 2021-03-07T18:41:28
You visit hidden sites with MS Edge?????
48 guest@cc 2021-03-23T23:24:53
Why do you keep calling it that? It's 1. not true and 2. not going to catch on.
49 guest@cc 2022-01-07T14:58:29
>What's your main browser?

Tor Browser
50 guest@cc 2022-02-13T12:24:11
finally switched from pale moon to ungoogled chromium
for some reason I had been having some serious performance issues with pale moon and it would often freeze for a couple seconds after I open a new website. I thought it would take forever to switch browsers (which is why it took so long for me to ditch palemoon), but is has been surprisingly easy so I'm glad for that.
Overall I'm hoping that webbrowser fixes all the issues I had with palemoon because I still prefer the firefox style over chromium
51 guest@cc 2022-03-08T03:44:43
Firefox works for everything I need, but I have countless extensions installed, even some which I made myself only for me.
52 guest@cc 2022-03-30T05:17:49
Yep, my web 'rowser! That's what I call 'em for short! You got a problem with that?
53 guest@cc 2022-03-31T01:04:53
Firefox is my go-to.
Waterfox and Chromium are also pretty decent.
