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.
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.
The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning...
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
Falkon, formerly QupZilla, is a QtWebEngine based cross-platform web browser.
It aims to be a lightweight web browser available through all major platforms.
Falkon has all standard functions you expect from a web browser. It includes bookmarks, history (both also in sidebar).
Falkon vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
It isn't really bad, but not a lot of add-ons and based con Qtweb (chromium). Not fingerprinting protection like Firefox but also no telemetry by default. It is ok, but it could be better.
Brings aut of the box what you need and don't support datastealing apps
This project is an independent fork of Firefox, with the primary goals of privacy security and user freedom. It is the community run successor to LibreFox
LibreWolf vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
don't confuse this with librefox (that was last updated back in 2018), this is a new build that has portable variation (provided launcher that you can register as a browser in Windows). releases sits at https://gitlab.com/librewolf-community/browser/windows/-/releases (other OS available)
It is suitable for everyone's use. Download and try.
This thing is a joke... A tragic fork of Firefox that restricts choices and breaks so many functions which are not recoverable with modification no matter how much you dig into the backend. Not to mention so many red flags as to how they themselves are using the program to syphon data on its users. Don't use it, unless you want them to sell your data.
The best alternative to Firefox. Unlike other forks, LibreWolf is compiled from the newest version available. Privacy out-of-the-box, no Pocket, no telemetry, uBlock Origin installed with the browser.
A fork of Firefox, with a pretty good out-of-the-box Privacy configuration.
Web-browser, advanced e-mail, newsgroup and feed client, IRC chat, and HTML editing in one application. Itis built on the open source Mozilla Gecko engine, the same code which underlies Thunderbird and is the base for the Firefox browser.
SeaMonkey vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
It has Spyware (telemetry) but you can disable it like Firefox, so it isn't bad.
Less resource-intensive than Firefox. Generally fast and stable.
I likee SeaMonkey because is lightweight, have add-on support, support old versions of Windows, and as a old-school design that combines with the system i use. Perfect alternative, i recommend giving a try!
It's the Father of Firefox and has an EXCELLENT team to keep it up to date and with current Firefox code. I just love this browser. ;)
Lighweight and is without soros Support.
Lighter on resources, had UI we were used to in old Firefox(version 3.x), some features like webRTC might be missing.
Within Linux works much more fast and compatible with Firefox extensions
A Google Chromium variant for removing Google integration and enhancing privacy, control, and transparency
Ungoogled Chromium vs Mozilla Firefox opinions
Despite Chromium being "open source", it still downloads Google-related crap and phones home to Google. If you value your online privacy, you'll appreciate the Ungoogled Chromium browser, which removes all that. However, Firefox remains more customizable in terms of privacy options.
Google services do not work properly on this browser, no DRM support of proprietary codecs available. Also, on Windows there is no .exe to click and install you need to compile and build it, it's not that simple and pretty limited in customization, even more than proper Google Chrome.
- It doesn't update like Chromium 2. It's hard to install on Windows and Linux 3. There is no DRM support, so forget about watching Netflix on it 4. It's hard to install extensions, no access to Google Web Store. 5. No Widevine codec available and to install it is hard and need manual intervention that doesn't work always.
