Outside of chrome and firefox, which browser would you recommend?

@kion i don't think there is that many that are feature rich like those two

i mean opera sure
but the ui on opera takes time to make look less cluttered

@kion i use falkon for certain stuff since it is faster but it lacks a ton of features and only offers the extensions included with the browser you can't really expand beyond that

@codythedragonrude @kion I second falkon, you can also try midori. I haven't used midori much, but I liked it all right.

@OpenComputeDesign @codythedragonrude Didn't know Falkon was a thing, I'll give it a try tonight. I like Midori, but it can't seem to play youtube videos.

@kion beakerbrowser if you want to check out the dat protocol

@kion I use qutebrowser. It's a Vi-like web browser that let's you use the keyboard only.

@hund Another qutebrowser recommendation, I'll definitely have to check this out.

@hund @kion

Qutebrowser
Falkon
w3m

I would not recommend either Chrome or Firefox

@Nesaijn Nice to see some recommendations for brave. Though after trying it, it says that kernel 4.9 doesn't support sandboxing.

@kion Hmm. I know about an error that caused by the use of the flag --no-sandbox, but that is new to me.

I have found this issue here on GitHub:
github.com/brave/browser-lapto

@kion Brave and Fennec (Chromium and Firefox based respectively).

@kion I use GNOME web at times, one that I've set my eyes on is titanium, rust webkitgtk based with vim bindings.

@bennydarshan Gnome web is one of the better FOSS browsers I've tried. The HUGE address bar seems kind of out of place.

@kion I do agree, specially if you have a screen resolution that goes below 1080p.
When I use a browser that is not one of the mainstream ones, I use it mostly for documentation or stackoverflow while I code, so those simpler ones are good for that.
