Re: Your views/experiences with web browsers fellow nixers ? :)

Pale Moon recently have Photonic theme support.

With the release of Firefox 57 came Quantum and the new "Photon" default theme. Now, this is on Pale Moon!
forum.palemoon.org

I tried and felt a part of Firefox Quantum, Who uses this browser, make sure to check this theme. It looks good.

Re: Your views/experiences with web browsers fellow nixers ? :)

Lost my love affair with chromium ungoogled, it started acting up after a while and I  switched back to FFox, but searching for a security focused browser (only cos I'm a bit of a paranoid android about security)
In the meantime I intend to try Nili's suggestion of palemoon

Re: Your views/experiences with web browsers fellow nixers ? :)

Anyone with experience of the Epic Privacy Browser?

Edit: I just realised Epic is not for *nix.

It was mentioned in a usenet forum thread discussing this online article. The poster mentioneing Epic stated this article was good only for the really uninitiated and went on mentioning things and SW omitted. He claimed Opera and above all Epic were better at privacy than the browsers listed in the article.

Your thougths on this?

^ Never heard of it. I tend to be skeptical of any service providing a free VPN or proxy.
Also, while I agree with that usenet forum poster on FastCompany (and it's related sister publications) not being an authority on matters pertaining to privacy or security, I wouldn't put much trust in modern day Opera.

Edit:
Then again, I have a habit of being negative for the sake of negativity, so maybe this newfangled browser is truly the best thing since bubblewrap and I'm losing out. I'll just blame society if that ends up being the case.

... speaking of repossessions, has a general consensus on Librefox been made yet, or is it still too early to judge?

That looks interesting, I might need to spend some time with this.

afaiu, in its current incarnation, just a set of default permissions.
nothing very spectacular.
at least they're upfront about it in the readme.

Interesting on archlinux:
there's an AUR package that can be installed system-wide and interacts with an existing vanilla firefox installation.

I...

  • installed it

  • removed the ~/.mozilla/firefox folder

And now on startup, firefox has the exact settings that are always the first thing i change on a new firefox install. Plus the really evil stuff is greyed out, i.e. cannot be changed. Handy.
