    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.

    I like that this browser is open source and not trying to profit off of your data. It is highly customizable by its nature, fast and privacy focused

    Easy to use. You can make it extremely secure using one file. Perfect extension support. All the features of Chrome, without being a data harvester.

    By default it is not private. If you are using firefox for its privacy you have to harden it. If you don't want to go through the process of hardening it then you can use librewolf which is a firefox fork and is pre-hardened. Just disable "clear cookies when librewolf closes" in librewolf settings or add exceptions per website. Or your cookies will be cleared and you will be logged out everytime you close librewolf. I use librewolf and would highly recommend it in place of firefox.

    I like how firefox does not force you to use google as search engine. chrome forces you to use google if you want to have pinned shortcuts on the hompage. extensions such as video downloading extensions work much better on firefox. google does not let extensions to download videos from youtube.

    Tons of features and great UI, but was bought out by a Chinese company, so it might not respect your privacy as much as it seems.

    Looks great, can easily handle hundreds of tabs open, has an ability to group tabs into manageable sessions, powerful sidebar where you can have your music and chat apps located. It's a really powerful and battle-tested browser.

    Chromium Is The Closest Alternative To Google, With Some Security Features Like No Search, It's Kinda Messed Up, But You Should Give It Try, Chromium Is Also Ranked To Be The Best Browser For Linux!

  4. 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 Google Chrome opinions
    Most users think SeaMonkey is a great alternative to Google Chrome.

    More privacy, more user control of how the browser functions, More technical interface, includes a web authoring and editing tool, integrated with email, and doesn't report home to Google.

    It helps me stay focused on web pages rather than the web browser. It has everything I need and nothing more. The GTK interface is simply awesome.

    This app does not have the look and feel of a modern web browser. Certainly not a serious replacement for Google Chrome. It is lacking in far too many features (shortcuts and more) to be a viable alternative. Useless toy? Or a bad practical joke? Try the Iridium browser and see if you understand what I mean!
