What Browser Do You Use?


#21

Installing Adaway was the whole reason behind me rooting my phone.


#22

And away but also to get rid of the bloatware! If I want something on my devices I should be able to decide what is to be installed. Some of the bloatware is just over the top. :roll_eyes:


Do you use a custom ROM on your Android?

Let’s continue this discussion here so we stay on topic.


#24

I see this was added to the AUR today, Inox-Beta, https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/inox-beta/

I started building it but after a couple of hours I ran out of patience. Will try again another day.


#25

@Dobbie03 I tried for three damn hours to get that thing to compile and it kept shitting the bed about two-thirds of the way there and taking my whole box with it.


#26

Wow! That is not good. Any idea what made it do that?


#27

@Dobbie03 From what I can tell, at first it was becuse it doesn’t play nice with ccache. So I tried without it and it made it worse. It is the overly complicated build structure that chromium uses that just goes on and on.

30,000 steps to compile? Yeah, I think maybe they can simplify some things.


#28

@TheJameyBear 30000 steps?! Is it trying to become its own OS within Archlabs? Something smells awful about this Inox-Beta. I am doing some serious thinking about this Inox-Beta before trying to build into my system. Makes me wonder how many tentacles are going through your files and what a nightmare it would be to eradicate, even with linux’s powerful tools. :thinking:


#29

@sevenday4 Precisely!


#30

I use 3 depending on my mood… FF, Brave, and VIvaldi


#31

FF as my daily dirver on Win / AL / Android. Brave on my Tablet for some private stuff.


#32

I just uninstalled all browsers other than Firefox Developer today. No point having them installed if I don’t use them.


#33

mainly firefox, but on occasions vivaldi-stable, and luakit (luakit is nice! but hard-ish get get to play nice with some sites)


#34

Firefox Quantum leaves the other browsers for dead, FF is blazingly fast.


#35

Firefox Quantum for daily use and Waterfox for things who need more security and legacy apps.


#36

Waterfox has never worked quite right for me. Not sure why.


#37

I have to say, the recent add-on Firefox made for Facebook is great. It’s a container for the FB home page, which keeps it from tracking your browsing etc.


#38

I just discovered qutebrowser due to someone around here mentioning it on another post. I like the whole concept and high level of geekyness that comes with it. It is now on my list of things to master.


#39

that would have been @nate. He is a big fan of Qutebrowser.

@Dobbie03 You can use flag --force-device-scale-factor=2 or other zoom with Chromium based applications.

Using https://github.com/Eloston/ungoogled-chromium myself, there are binaries available in AUR https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ungoogled-chromium-bin
