Hi.

What is your favorite web browser.

Mine is Firefox. :mrgreen:

The only secure browsers available from the official Debian jessie repositories are Firefox and Chromium.

From the Release Notes:
browsers built upon the webkit, qtwebkit and khtml engines are included in Jessie, but not covered by security support. These browsers should not be used against untrusted websites.

For general web browser use we recommend Iceweasel or Chromium.

https://www.debian.org/releases/jessie/ ... r-security

Iceweasel has been replaced with Firefox, of course.

Firefox user but I have installed Chromium (only to check how big it gets over time hehe) too - use lynx in case I'm too lazy to fire up Firefox/Iceweasel (put tears here).

Slimjet.

Hi arochester.

I'm not familiar with that. I must check it out.

Cheers.

Chromium- just like chrome (well, pretty much) but available and supported from the official repositories.

Firefox. It displays web pages correctly, has some useful extensions, and doesn't annoy me enough to investigate alternatives. I also use Chrome for a couple of TV streaming sites that don't like FF, but it eats too much memory.

I use Firefox as my main browser, but I have Palemoon, Chromium, Opera, and Qupzilla installed as well.

I prefer chromium as devs seem to take Linux seriously where I have fairly irritating font rendering issues with FF and my high-dpi laptop screen.

Konqueror is IMO no longer ready for primetime and as hard as I've tried to love Opera I just haven't been successful yet.

That's a strong lead by Mozilla Firefox. :D

I was a Firefox guy, but have moved to Pale Moon. It seems to perform better and my add-ons work better with Pale Moon. I don't really like the direction Firefox has been going lately.

I put Chrome as I frequently use a Chromebook, but Firefox does a fine job also.

I usually skip "What is your favorite" threads on any forum, but no longer. I had never heard of Pale Moon before and I appreciate the recommendation.

Thank you!
