  • For those that participated in this poll, could you please explain your choice, whatever it may be, and share what makes this browser better than the others (in your opinion).

    Thank you so much:slight_smile:.

  • I find Chromium to be fast, stable and to have all features I need. It don’t feel bloated at all. I like the developer’s tools it is packaged with. Have a great plugin database. I also feel to be less spyed with it.

    Chrome don’t bring anything more than Chromium don’t already bring to me. Anything that Chrome do that Chromium don’t already do just feel to be not required. With Chrome I also feel to be more spyed.

    Firefox has been my favorite browser for awhile but now, it’s just lagging behind.

    The others options don’t interest me since I’m very happy with Chromium for now.

  • @iSpeakVeryWell +1 on that. firefox always have a place in my heart from using it when it 1st started but its lagged behind badly. chromium based browsers seem best for speed.

  • Thank you so much for your explanation, @iSpeakVeryWell.

    I have found your comment about speed to be SO true!:slight_smile:

  • For me, Firefox for the win!

    Primarily because it’s FOSS, improving with each release and just works out of the box for all aspects I use.

    I know others may not have the same privacy concerns, but I find it difficult to justify using proprietary browsers - particularly produced by global conglomerates.

    Yes, I understand that. My comment was also that Firefox works out of the box for many aspect that I use, including Netflix and various other ondemand services. The last time I checked this wasn’t possible with Chromium without the need for chrome-based plugins.

    To be fair it was a few months ago that I checked and I would be stoked to hear that Chromium now works for Netflix, et al out of the box.

  • @fotonut-nz , to be honest, I try using as few google services/products as possible, myself. But sometimes, a combination of the two (Firefox-Chromium) is inevitable. There are certain things that work better in the one but not so good in the other.
    A 3rd choice, since I m on KDE, is Qupzilla (chromium-based). Lightweight and fast, with good features, very decent one for everyday browsing.

  • vivaldi !
    (sadly not updated to latest version in the Antergos repo) highly configurable, and FAST!
    Very nice options for reading history too.

    At Firefox > uses to much Ram and also do a massive systemload… ma ythis is not a problem on a system wit 16 CPU-Cores and 64GB of RAM but this is not what it should be… (as a freedom Browser)

    vivaldi !

    Yes! How can anyone go wrong there? I had to tweak it to speed the browser up a bit, but now it is faster than Chrome!

  • I like it but Vivaldi does not save the passwords correctly. Many times forget

    I know what you mean. I have only been using it for a few weeks, but I am beginning to find that true.

  • @Velkerk @A-User do you use the 1.8 version of vivaldi from Antergos Repo?
    I do not have any problems with password save, but i build 1.9 for me.

    I think so. I’ll look into switching soon, but at the moment I’m a little busy:slight_smile: (I bet you know what I’m talking about, @joekamprad:smile:). Thanks for the info!

    :Quite right so. At startup. But, on the other hand, try opening 5 tabs at the same time. In my system (4 GB RAM) this is about 2,500 G RAM, You don t want to know what the reading is, when in Chromium. Luckily there s that suspend tab addon.
    To make things more complex: Firefox seems to have a big problem releasing memory when closing a tab/s. This is not the case for Chromium. Memory is released before even you think of closing tabs.

  • I think Chrome is the fastest and the difference is very noticeable compared to Firefox. But Firefox remains my main browser still, because of the add-ons as one thing.

    I hope everything will speed up with their new servo engine, because they really need to get back in the battle
