I voted Chromium, but I've switched to using Pale Moon since reading comments in this thread and elsewhere.

Ummmm---you mean like Firefox or Pale Moon can come in an archive file and can be run portably from the extracted folder? Or the "hot" new Electron or Appimage browser ones (see Min)?

QtWeb is as safe as any browser that hasn't had any security fixes in at least a couple years. :roll:

They don't make any deb package anyway. :lol:

In other hand Brave seems to get a more good feedbacks & attention
even though it's just some another chromium based browser.

My favourite is Seamonkey. It is a complete Internet Suite with browser, email-client, address book etc.

A bit of a dilemma between w3m and elinks. w3m integrates nicely with Vim, though I remember the elinks hotkeys better. Oh well...

Since the poll lists neither, I chose Firefox/Iceweasel. Yay!

I've been trying Qupzilla lately, since a couple of months version 2.0.2 is in Sid and it uses QtWebEngine instead of WebKit.
