    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.

    Cons:

    • 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

    It has the most similarity to firefox whitout being firefox nightly, which is just firefox but more updated and usually more unstable.

    It has a mid 2000's site like feel without feeling outdated. It has tons of features, and has some compatibility features with Gecko/Firefox add-ons, which in my opinion makes it a great alternative to firefox. It does not have a blacklist of sites, unlike firefox.

    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.

    Not a real alternative firefox is an opensource standalone browser. vivaldi is based on chromium and only provides a proprietary UI for the chromium core. You cant also disable telemetry in vivaldi due to their business model.

    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

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.
