One reason why people won't like Opera is because it's proprietary.

i heard so much bad about webkit on debian...

Qt WebEngine is "based on the Chromium Project". I assume they just use Blink for Qt stuff and widgets. Should hopefully be a bit more secure than webkit.

I dont like any of the browsers - its the extensions that make them usable.

I disliked paleMoon least for a while till it ran into extension problems.

Now my least disliked is Tor-Browser. it can simpley access more sites.

Firefox always runs in the money, and chrome dead last in this race...

Not at all.

Tor-Browser is basically a modded Firefox, that will call up any normal website PLUS those with TOR url's. A site with a Tor onion url can be accessed even when its DNS is being heavily blocked.

Its only downside is that it is *slower*. This doesnt apply to P2P though, as while the browser itself is proxied, the rest of the system is not, unless it is fully configured to use the Tor proxy. In short the browser itself will show up as originating from random countries, but other apps, such as bittorrent will display your actual IP address. Ideally to avoid such problems one would use a VPN with it. The VPN itself uses normal DNS, so the addition of the Tor browser with it gives additional access, as well as added security.

Google wont work with Tor, but duckduckgo works just fine.

but most websites won't work in Tor browser anyway unless you enable Javascript, Tor Browser isn't really alternative to normal browser imo

None of them. All of them seem to be on the same route of behaving nicely towards the 'business world', who are convinced they have the sacrosanct right, to brainwash the masses into purchasing what they don't need, and that consumerism makes one belong to a higher social echelon. Fortunately, there are intelligent minds around, who have already provided a way of blocking 'abusive' advertising, that not only advertises a useless product, but more often than not, abuses its audience psychologically.

If the powers that be, want advertising to be acceptable to all, they have to seriously repeal the law, otherwise, freethinkers will resist what they understand is abusing them.

for a 1Ghz CPU from 2008 's

Right Now in Strectch linux, i just achive This, without coming into obsolescence gap
sudo dpkg -i opera-stable_42.0.2393.517_amd64.deb (Chrome/55.0.2883.87)
sudo apt-mark hold opera-stable


So, Im using a stuck opera version for regular use, and updating firefox for security operations use.

New chrome/firefox versions cant be installed anymore with just 1GHz CPU without coming into obsolescence gap, so thinking of buying a new one soon...

Firefox.
Mainly due to habit. I've been using it for 10+ years.
Occasionally I do switch to Chrome.
