No Floorp users? It's a Firefox fork with a focus on UI/UX, it has built-in options for things like vertical tabs, different themes (not just colors), integrated translate, ublock by default, that sort of thing. Kind of like a Firefox-based equivalent of Vivaldi, I've been really enjoying it. Honestly though I'd just be using Vivaldi if it wasn't chromium-based and closed source.

I'm not really happy with anything on mobile though. Vivaldi is super smooth to use but no extensions and privacy is ehh. Firefox / forks are really nice for extension support but the UI is atrocious.

Begrudgingly Firefox (with uBlock and Arkenfox) for websites I don't trust. I would rather use qutebrowser or badwolf, which I save for websites I do trust.

One more for Firefox. It's at a nice point in terms of features vs privacy. Of the big, household name browsers, Firefox is far better than Chrome or Safari in terms of privacy. It's much worse than all those niche tech-enthusiast browsers, but those all lack the robust suite of features and extensions that Firefox has.

Sounds interesting!

Up until recently I was using Safari both on mobile and desktop, because I really like the browser sync, but I got tired of the lack of good extensions on Safari for macOS. Problem is that all non-Safari browsers on iOS have no extensions at all, so I have to keep using it there. So now I use Safari on iOS, Firefox on macOS, and I have a tiny Safari window open on my Mac listing synced tabs, and I use a Shortcut that I made to send tabs from Safari directly to Firefox, and then go back to the synced tabs list in Safari.

I'm a Safari user these days. My browser journey is along the lines of IE > Firefox (when it was called firebird) > Safari > Chrome > Vivaldi > Safari.

Some stuff doesn't work great in Safari and I keep Vivaldi knocking about for when I need Chromium, but I tend to find that Safari meets most of my needs these days, and the compact tab layout and lack of tab management features stops me from engaging in my natural habit of spamming tabs all about the place.

I checked out Floorp as it was mentioned here and it unfortunately has the same problem as FF in that you can't set a default page for a new tab? I have no idea why FF doesn't have this and it's a total dealbreaker for me.

I mainly use librewolf becuz I don't need to setup arkenfox everytime I install firefox. Ungoogled chromium is a good one. Thorium is another one with some nice features and speed but It is always a version or two behind upstream chromium so there's that. Just stick to what works best for you. happy smiley
