Alternatives to Google Chrome for all platforms with Open Source License

    • Firefox allows far more control over your privacy than does Chrome (or even Chromium on which Chrome is based). Not jut because it doesn't come with Google stuff embedded, but also because it allows complete control over things like webRTC (which can leak info about your IP address, hardware), whereas Chrome/Chromium and related browsers don't have this control.

    • Firefox is a good alternative to Chrome, allowing you to get back your privacy. jeanchristophe2Apr 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Faster, lightweight, portable and secure. CyberiaNov 2017 • 4 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is a graphical web browser. Which in my experience shows the web pages with higher quality than google chrome. Sometimes some elements of the web page don't work in google chrome. mohammadghasemiSep 2016 • 9 agrees and 7 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Provides better privacy control and memory consumption Guest • Mar 2018 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is more protective of your data and noe exceeds Chrome on most technical issues User3410851Apr 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Chrome is closed-source and part of Google's privacy-invading business model, which works by harvesting user data. Firefox is open source, so you can check what it's doing under the good. It's also more configurable (about:config) and its Nov 2017 update made it faster than its competitors. JohnFastmanJul 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's a really nice browser, also, in my opinion, it uses less RAM memory than Google Chrome and also is Open Source! It has many cool plug-ins and the navigation is pretty stable, I completely recommend it. IvannJul 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • However it is open source and the privacy is better, the consumption of RAM is huge, try yourself: open just one tab with Whatsapp Web, and you will see Firefox using 1GB of RAM! sidboyJun 2017 • 10 agrees and 31 disagrees Disagree   Agree
  • Chromium

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

    • Without the google branding, it is the same efficient code. User2778798Jun 2017 • 6 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • On Linux, this is the best alternative to Google Chrome, especially if your distribution does not support Google Chrome. The same speed, security, and reliability that you can expect from Chrome, but without Flash player and other proprietary bits. jxewingJul 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • It doesn't have a proper installer for Windows. It's very hard to install it compared to Google Chrome. On the other hand, on Linux platform both are easy to install. williamneis15 days ago Disagree   Agree
    • The derivative of chrome, lighter and open sourced. jacobsmith_16Oct 2017 • 2 agrees and 11 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Tor is a web browser, like Chrome, with high advantage of privacy protection Guest • Jun 2016 • 7 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Because it has extensions such as NoScript by default, and configuration settings to avoid being tracked Guest • Mar 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • It is exactly an alternative to Chrome. Google believes people should not have privacy as stated by its CEO Eric Schmidt. The Tor Project believes the opposite. 9y0xwefhpwMay 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • SImply the best way to go around paywalls Guest • Aug 2018 Disagree   Agree

    • It's kinda like Chrome but WAY more private. karaboungalosMay 2017 • 5 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Brave is fast and has many built in features that are great Guest • Apr 2017 • 4 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Brave is an effort to make a Chrome-like experience based on the Chromium code base and remove/block all the spyware Google put in to monitor your online activity. Brave is good, but it's not as good/flexible as Iridium. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's good and fast, but makes it really better than Chrome is that it is developed with security and privacy in mind. I use it on my phone and my laptop, and I'd never switch to anything else Guest • May 2017 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's good. But Chrome has a lot of extensions. If you're used to use many extension and if you want to continue using those extensions, this is not a good solution for you. Guest • Jul 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • All about security and reducing the web's dependence on ads. getterdonApr 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Privacy protections by default like fingerprint and tracker blocking. Even script blocking if desired. Each privacy option is configurable for each page. It's only missing an option to sync or export browsing history and bookmarks (though I can see these features interfere with "perfect" privacy) Guest • Nov 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Fewer options, Chromium under the hood, built in ad blocker, no risk of installing garbage through the WebStore. Only problem: no user scripts! Guest • Feb 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • It's an excellent alternative if you want a browser with implemented adblocker mlemmark15 days ago Disagree   Agree

    Free Open Source Mac Windows Linux

    Iridium icon
    • Chrome fans will do well to realise that Chrome is proprietary and contains a lot of code designed to spy on what you do online, correlate this with the rest of your Google account data and use it to make money. Iridium, on the other hand, takes the Chromium codebase and specifically removes privacy-invading parts. Unlike Chrome, Iridium is open source, so you can check the code yourself, if you wish. Some functionality is reduced (e.g. Flash) but in that case try Vivaldi. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 2 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
