Best Linux Browser



  • Although I'm not a great fan of the windows version of Vivaldi just yet and instead opt for Opera Developer, I do believe that Vivaldi is by far the better Linux browser out there. I like how its GUI isn't restricted by the Linux destops unlike Opera that conforms to some of the ugly borderings wasting screen space.

    It so happens that I like apps on my desktop to have a uniform design. So, if an app sticks out like a sore thumb on the desktop, I want it to be thoroughly customisable to conform to the design of my desktop. This includes fonts and colours in the menus, inside the app, and decorations and borders around the app.



  • If you think about it a little bit more, imagine what it's going to be one year from now <3



  • Best browser???

    Assessments have often a personal touch. For me the best browser would be that peace of software dealing with all the challenges around the web. Until today I didn't find it but I won't stop looking for it! For the moment I categorize Vivaldi 'promising'.

    One year from now?
    Without the gift of prophecy I really don't know but I hope for the best :)

    I can't express how much I agree with this (I'm on Mint).

    Overall, Vivaldi actually delivers the most responsive UI at the moment (FF Nightly is pretty good as well)
    Chromium is getting sluggish with 20+ tabs
    Few last verions of Opera are terribly slow



  • Best browser doesn't mean anything…
    Anyway I like Vivaldi right now, although it isn't complete yet and it takes a long time to start up
    I also tried Otter on Linux, the cool thing is that after the first start it open immediately, but of course it doesn't have any extensions and stuff
    I think Firefox is ok there

    I just had problems with chrome

    If you wanna have some fun try out some textual browsers like Links

    I can't understand what are you talking about.

    Opium and opera can be started w/o the decorations exactly as any other program, with many windows managers.

    Frankly vivaldi has many nice features but is the browser with the slowest UI. In linux as in windows.
