"Freedom browser" series part 3!

The developer of aforementioned Librefox seems to have DISAPPEARED.

The community is wondering whether Mozilla (makers of Firefox) is behind it.

Yes: Mozilla has been very sketchy on recent times.

They were supposed to be the big torchbearer for freedom but have in opinion of many actually turned against the people.

Meet LIBREWOLF. A forked Librefox, then.

"Freedom browser" trend continues | Librefox: Browse With Freedom.

This project aims at enforcing privacy and security of Firefox without forking the project.

500+ privacy / security / performance settings, patches, addons & cleaned bundle of Firefox (updater, crashreporter and Firefox's integrated addons that don't respect privacy are removed).

Librefox is NOT associated with Mozilla or its products.

Jewels from SouthEast LinuxFest 2019 part 1: Noah Chelliah - Why We Need Linux on The Desktop.

MacOS has come along way, Windows 10 is (marginally) better than previous version, is there still hope for Linux on the desktop?

Right now is a golden opportunity for Linux to succeed in a space where everyone else is focusing on mobile or cloud.

@Akzel Well, they are in it for profit also; there is a "Ultimate" edition which is not free.

Go figure. I would love to just support them via merch / Patreon rather than this type of model...

Tom of Switched To Linux considered it polished and improved experience but also added this:

"Except it does contain telemetry by default and does not disclose on install that it pings home regularly."

@oscarhall

Interesting times of change are at hand indeed, it seems.

What time to be alive as a Linux user overall :thinkhappy:
