Vivaldi is extremely customizable, presenting a wide range of settings and built-in features designed to put the user in control.
Vivaldi vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
Vivaldi is simply the next stop for Firefox users, while it is freeware, it is technically closed and open-source. Some of the browser's components are closed while some are open and the source codes are available on Vivaldi's website.
To me, Vivaldi is what Firefox used to be.
It's not a Mozilla fork and bloated with other stuff.
I this Mozilla Firefox is a very Good Browser Very effective
Vivaldi is indeed a very good alternative to Firefox, unfortunately Firefox has an add on called "I hate tabs" which stops it from breaking your user interface. No such beast in Vivaldi. :(
Vivaldi opens web pages in tabs instead of windows, and this nuisance cannot be turned off. Firefox and Pale Moon seem to be the only web browsers still doing it the correct way.
It Is Based ON the Browser Engine of Chrome. (Blink)
Brave Web Browser is a fast, free, secure web browser with a built-in ad blocker*, tracking and security protection, and optimized data and battery experience.
Brave vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
The best of the best : no ads, very fast, very safe and very free and work with chrome extension
It's great with a browser that is trying to solve the issue with ads on the web AND the issue that publishers needs money to build cool sites.
Their privacy claims go as far as Facebook saying "we don't sell your data". You are tracked by cryptocurrency companies (Uphold & Brave rewards), they can ask for ID card as well. In the end this is just Chromium with a build-in ponzi scheme; slower and less private too.
Despite it being marketed otherwise, Brave DOES track you, and the browser is far too crypto-based for it to be a legitimate alternative for most people. (Did I also mention that there are ads everywhere? First-party ads, not third-party ads, but still.)
It's not a Mozilla fork and there's ads... Oh the ads.
We don't sell your data... Easily.
it's faster, more secure, sync what you want through different platforms, safe.
Pale Moon is an Open Source, Goanna-based web browser available for Microsoft Windows and Linux (with other operating systems in development), focusing on efficiency and customization. Make sure to get the most out of your browser!.
Pale Moon vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
Best Good Old Firefox! Pale Moon is the what Firefox should be!
It is really light and fast.
- as base is used a very old version of Firefox
- bad user experience (interface)
- an very old (and probably already unsupported) version of Sync
- no support for modern plugins, extensions and themes
Pros: Very light. Also very secure. Decent community support, plus old firefox extensions. Open source. Cons: Old version of firefox as base. (solves this: mypal, new experimental version) Bad UI. (solves this: mypal, experimental) no support for modern extensions, themes, plugins, etc (solves this: mypal, again) not available on XP and Vista even though it's light enough for that. (solves this: god damn it mypal again) my rating: 7/10, i would use it as a secondary browser
Poor support for plugins, making it useless as you cannot block out distracting ads.
Privacy and security focus.
Pale Moon is fast, secure and open source. It's compatible with old Firefox's extensions and is private. Lightweight and private. The best alternative
Waterfox is a high performance browser based on the Mozilla platform. Made specifically for 64-Bit systems, Waterfox has one thing in mind: speed.
Waterfox vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
It's like the Chromium, but for Firefox.
Waterfox is made for x64 (amd64) CPUs, and it also delivers you a fine service concerning privacy, firstly devs removed telemetry and tracking implented recently in Firefox. Secondly it supports old extensions and pocket was removed
Dated when compared to actual Firefox, some extensions doesn't work properly due to it being based on a old version of Firefox.
Waterfox helps keep my private data private (though just the act of trying to keep private makes me somewhat trackable).
There's also a "Waterfox Classic" branch for people that really miss the OLD firefox. You can use them both independently of each other, or you can have them sync up so that you only need to switch to the new Waterfox when classic won't work.
Up until late 2020 I was using Pale Moon as my Firefox alternative of choice, but the fact that none of the Firefox addons are compatible with PaleMoon any longer (even the LEGACY addons that USED to be compatible no longer are) I've since switched to Waterfox and haven't looked back at Pale Moon since. What's the point of being a FireFox fork if none of the extensions (including legacy) that used to be compatible no longer are?
clean striped open-source alternative if you seek a browser without any telemetry features
Please keep it updated quicker vs Firefox. That is my only complaint.
Opera is an innovative browser that focus on implementing new technologies without dropping simplicity and ease of use, speed, and security; supporting and contributing to open web standards.
Opera vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
I like Opera for its free VPN.
Speed and low power usage
they are really different, FF is much better
Opera is all about tabbed browsing. Too bloated and not similar to Firefox at all.
Used to be a decent Browser until the Chinese took it over. Has a very suspect built in "VPN" Might as well just use Chrome.
If we wanted closed source, who knows where's your data now...
Firefox is focused on privacy and it is open-source. Opera is closed-source and it is owned by a chinese company.. Not so private...
Chromium is an open-source browser project that aims to build a safer, faster, and more stable way for all users to experience the web.
Chromium vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
Chromium is ahead of others at the moment.
Chromium is the core of the Chrome browser. It functions well enough as a browser but lacks some of Chrome's features (e.g. built in language translator). Even though Chromium is open source, it still "phones home" to Google, which has privacy implications. There are more private Chromium-based browsers, such as Brave and Iridium.
Not even remotely similar to Firefox. For starters, in Chromium-based browsers there is no real address bar, but instead a combined address bar/search box, which causes every uri you type in here to leak to search engine providers. Secondly, it takes a plugin to disable tabbed browsing, instead of simply unchecking the box "open new pages in a tab instead of a window" as you can do in Firefox.
Not similar IU, less security and privacy, no DRM, hard to install if you use Windows and you must use instead a random version of this like I googled chromium. Also it doesn't have the same support of Firefox, nor custom support, nor a good webstore ...
Different from Firefox, it doesn't autoupdate on Windows. You need to basically download a new browser per wiki and install... On Linux, it's more easy to manage updates depending on the distros, on Arch Linux/Debian it's so easy, but hard on Ubuntu/Mint.
By default, it doesn't support DRM because the missing Widevine plugin/codec
Chromium doesn't have DRM features and some codecs implemented like Google Chrome, it's open-source but all your data goes to Google when you use Chrome Store to download apps since there is no Chromium store. Also, this browser is hard to install on Windows, you have to compile or download versions that are created by the users daily, so it means you do not have a proper installer like on Linux/BSD.
A free web browser developed by Google from the open source Chromium project with a focus on speed and minimalism. Chrome offers fast start-up and web page loading, supports a minimalist user interface, automatically updates in the background...
Google Chrome vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
It's just more widespread
It doesn't have the same level of privacy and personalization
Proprietary, made by a profit company based on spy it users, cannot custom, not equivalent like about:config in Firefox, cannot disable telemetry or see code, so it is a black box. Shitty add-ons, Chrome is killing Third party and also going to kill third add-ons... Performance is ok but I don't see difference with Firefox (in Linux also Firefox is WAY BETTER in performance) Don't support monopolist companies.
It's made by Google. Do I need to say more?
Not one positive thing to say about know it all.
Chrome is just a big crap. Google's spyware. Avoid using it at all costs. Bloated, sending your data to Google, spying on you, slow, this is what you get when using Chrome.
It has a very bad performance compared to Firefox on Linux.

Tor Browser vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
Customized Firefox for anonymity (blends in with other tor user making it hard to fingerprint/identify)
Firefox Developer Edition brings you latest features, fast performance, and the development tools you need to build for the open web. Its powerful development tools will extend your ability to work across multiple platforms from one place.
Firefox Developer Edition vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
If you have issues with Firefox not being fast enough but don't wanna go Chrome try this! Also faster than Chrome.
offical edition of firefox
Rebuilt from the ground up using Chromium, the new Microsoft Edge brings you world-class compatibility and performance, the security and privacy you deserve, and new features designed to bring you the best of the web.
Microsoft Edge vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
Imagine Chromium but with bing by default for search and with not spyware of Google, instead of Microsoft's one. Not Open Source, no good add-ons, no privacy, no security and a company that only want your data for sell it...
Basically same as Chrome, with the same disadvantages (and - admittedly - advantages) compared to Firefox. I would say, the only real Firefox alternatives in this list so far are Pale Moon and Waterfox, the latter being superior to both Pale Moon and Firefox itself!
Based on Chromium and privacy friendly too, Firefox has no any advantages than Edge.
