I know it’s a fool’s errand to ask, but I will anyway. What, in your opinion, is the best browser to use as your main browser? I’m preparing to install Antergos, so I will likely choose Chromium or Firefox to install, but I’m not all that excited about either of them.
I currently use Firefox (in Peppermint 7) and usually have 10-20 tabs open at any given time. After a while, RAM usage climbs, reaching as much as 6 or 7 GB of the 8 GB I have available. I have Chrome installed on my current system (for Netflix), but I tend not to use it much because of the privacy concerns, so I don’t know how it compares.
I used to use Opera (back in the 3.x series days) and have also hear about various other options: Vivaldi, Pale Moon, etc. I’m okay with having a couple of browsers installed if necessary, but would prefer just one (space is not a problem, but one of the appeals of Antergos is the chance to basically install only what I want and not much else).
I use Facebook, gMail, Netflix, BBC News, and YouTube, so I obviously want to be able to play web videos and watch video content. Given those parameters, what are your choices/suggestions? (I think I read on the Manjaro forums that Vivaldi can be made to work with Netflix, and I also heard that Firefox can now work with Netflix, though I don’t know what is involved.)
As a side note, does anyone use ICE-SSB, the single site browser app developed by Peppermint and now available in the AUR? I use it for Netflix. Thanks everyone.
