Alternatives to Mozilla Firefox for Linux with any license

  • Chromium

    Chromium is the open-source browser project from which Google Chrome takes its source.

    • 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. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 27 agrees and 9 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Chromium is most likely the heart of Google Chrome, Opera and some browsers without fancy features. SiliconeValleySep 2016 • 11 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Chromium is not a ready-for-the-consumer software. It is a open source project that needs to be implemented to make it work. jacksarroccoJul 2016 • 17 agrees and 61 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • It doesn't have the same level of privacy and personalization Guest • Mar 2017 • 99 agrees and 12 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Bad add-on/script compatibility, less freedom for modding the browser Guest • Aug 2015 • 87 agrees and 22 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Do not have as many languages and spell checking support as Firefox do. Guest • Dec 2016 • 47 agrees and 15 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Not open-source, which is the major reason for using Firefox. Guest • Jan 2018 • 22 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The purpose of Mozilla is to offer a free, open source browser that protect privacy while Google chrome purpose is to exploit private data to promote Google Ads. Guest • Feb 2018 • 13 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Completely different way of addons, different way of process handling, independent from Goole, more intuitive to handle, perfect for power users, completely different way to secure addons (provides much less working surface for malware). Guest • Oct 2017 • 11 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Less customization with add-ons, closed-source code and Google privacy issues. Chrome is what Firefox is trying to be with FF 57 / WebExtensions, but it won't work, just like how corporate Democrats will never be able to win enough Republican voters over to replace their progressive base. Stop trying to be Chrome, Mozilla. Guest • Nov 2017 • 12 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Use less RAM than firefox 57, better at javascript with V8 Guest • Jan 2018 • 10 agrees and 15 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • More reliable in the sense that there are more websites that work better in Chrome than those that work better in Firefox. 914ian914Feb 2018 • 4 agrees and 12 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is fast, stable and more secure than Firefox. It manages the resources better than Firefox. sidboyNov 2016 • 16 agrees and 81 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Vivaldi Browser

    A browser for our friends. Fast, feature rich and highly customizable that puts the users first.

    • Vivaldi is fast, has a native note taking service and sidebar. Chrome extensions work flawlessly. Excellent browser. Guest • Jan 2017 • 12 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Vivaldi is amazing, it just features everything I like in Firefox, with the speed of the webkit engine ! It accepts chrome extensions. The synchronization support should be added soon. It is better than Chrome for sure. If it was open-source, it would be better than Firefox as well. loxaxsApr 2017 • 5 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Fast, efficient, and has useful features for productivity. CBagleyNov 2017 • 2 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Fast. Great tab management. Very customizable. Faster than Firefox. Great history management. Users should give a try. Guest • Jun 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • Does not contain options to sync browser settings, bookmarks, extensions, passwords, etc. between devices. Guest • 14 days ago Disagree   Agree
    • Does not adapt aromatically to the high contrast environment (windows - ease of access) thus is impossible for people with vision problems to work with the browser unless someone customize Vivaldi for them. Guest • Aug 2017 • 1 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Fast, customizable, lightweight and is not made by a company that sell ads and spy your online behavior like Google. Guest • Apr 2017 • 1 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Vivaldi is clearly inferior to Firefox. Comes nowhere near the same quality Guest • Oct 2017 • 6 agrees and 11 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Vivaldi cares about users privacy and user experience while on the web. It doesn't have the bloat that comes with Chrome, and the slowness that comes with Firefox. Guest • Dec 2016 • 1 agrees and 9 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • When Firefox become more and more bloated Pale Moon is lightweight, offers stability and compatibility with the FF extensions (for now, because WebExtensions). It also works great with a lot of tabs(400 or more). Guest • Mar 2017 • 22 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • So far, Pale Moon gives me features I want that Firefox has disabled and will soon be gone completely in Firefox 57. Firefox 57 will be a Chrome-like boat anchor. Pale Moon is very stable, lightweight and is fast Guest • Apr 2017 • 19 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Much more stable than the actual firefox. 1 crash per day vs. 1 crash per two weeks on MacOSX Guest • Mar 2016 • 14 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Pale Moon is very lightweight (low RAM usage), and maintains the look and feel of earlier versions of Firefox. Essentially, this is the Firefox Mozilla should have made. Guest • May 2017 • 6 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Firefox is no longer just a good browser. Firefox is going to be a Google Chrome clone. It is dropping support for legacy add-ons. Firefox is dropping support for XP and Vista. Pale Moon has committed to retaining support for add-ons, menu's, security and still remains lightweight. Guest • Apr 2017 • 7 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Pale Moon resembles old Firefox, and maintains support for old extensions, and old features. Guest • Mar 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is faithful to the core principles of Firefox (customization, extendibility, user friendliness...), avoiding the bloating and the questionable decisions taken in the last years by Mozilla. Pale Moon is the browser for those of us that loved Firefox in its golden years. Guest • Jun 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Pale Moon is very good, all sites are loading almost the same as Firefox, but uses less RAM & CPU, so the system is working faster than with Firefox, and also removed unnecessary functions. Pale Moon add-ons are very useful, especially YouTube Downloader and Adblock Latitude. Configurable very, very nice browser, 10 out of 10 points. Guest • May 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • Firefox classic UI and faster than Firefox. It's more user friendly and easier to use. Firefox is too jumbled and complicated. Guest • Apr 2018 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Waterfox

    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 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 AkinoJun 2017 • 13 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It depends what you want from a Firefox alternative. Waterfox is essentially identical to Firefox, except that it's a 64-bit, not a 32-bit browser. It's still open source and fully compatible with all options, extensions and everything else. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 13 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Great 64-bit alternative, it's lighting-fast & ditches the telemetry. Guest • Aug 2017 • 7 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is completely compatible with every feature present in Firefox, so you don't lose *anything* when migrating, and win privacy, speed and security. Guest • Oct 2017 • 5 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Uses almost all the original code of firefox but keeps the "undesired" NPAPI that firefox dropped, another words user retains ability to change the browser's UI & behaviour Guest • Nov 2017 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Waterfox is so far the closest to modern Firefox, but with better privacy, and a commitment to maintain XUL/XPCOM support indefinitely so that I can keep using a modern theme with square tabs, centred bookmarks and of course the add-on bar. birdNov 2017 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • So far this is the BEST replacement I have found for FireFox 57 (which is just a Chrome clone at this point) Guest • Nov 2017 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Open source fork of Firefox with a few privacy settings (not not all) changed by default. Guest • May 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Currently (March 2017), Brave is not a mature project. It's an open-source privacy-oriented browser and very fast. But you rely on the developers to provide most of the privacy settings, and you can't install extensions. Firefox remains much more customizable via it's about:config menu options. JohnFastmanMar 2017 • 13 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's really really nice and fast, but is still in very early development and lacking a lot of features Guest • Apr 2017 • 7 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Built-in ad-blocker, free and open-source. Guest • Feb 2018 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Read my review. Brave is Firefox baby with more privacy and clear interface AkinoJun 2017 • 2 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Cyberfox

    Cyberfox is a 64-bit version (32-bit download also available) of Mozilla Firefox , compiled With Microsoft Visual Studio 2012, Windows 8 SDK & Intel Composer XE 2013.

    • Is "bigger" in capabilities than Firefox (which I've used near exclusively for 15 years or so) -- Have been using Cyberfox with mad love for near three years now, and just had my heart broken to hear they were shutting it down as of first half of 2018. :( Guest • Sep 2017 • 4 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Native 64bit, fast, clean from adware, suspicious extensions and it has it's own user profile. Many Firefox alternative browsers share user profile with Firefox. Guest • Dec 2016 • 1 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Excellent user support, less memory-intensive than either the official Firefox 64-bit or Waterfox (based on my system), and it works with Firefox Sync. Guest • Mar 2017 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
