Light Browser

Postby zadiste » 2019-11-01 11:21

Has anyone had any luck installing the Light browser (aka Firefox Lite) on their system? It seems like it might not be maintained anymore, but there is an RPM available through SourceForge. I haven't tried it yet because I'm afraid of borking my system with it. Has anyone had success with it?

If you use these extensions for Firefox you dramatically reduces the weight of the web pages and you make Firefox more responsive:

  • Privacy Badger
  • Ublock Origin
  • Disconnect
  • Decentraleyes

Plus the ones incorporated in Firefox. Otherwise a good alternative is Midori though some security issues with WebkitGTK.

These are certainly the best candidates for privacy and speed, but they overlap in their efforts and as Disconnect advises, some of them won't work as advertised if the others are present. Therefore, I nominate Ublock Origin, Firefox itself, and Decentraleyes as able to work together. Privacy Badger has the advantage of not needing block lists or configuration. I don't know about Disconnect, but I will study it. Thanks for the reference. I hope that eventually Firefox will be able to do all these functions.
