    Post What is a good alternative to firefox and chrome?

    I am looking forward to switching from FireFox and I don't want to go back to Chrome. I know there is Brave in windows and I am looking forward to a security-centric browser like that. Is there anything like that in the software store that you guys would recommend?

    Vivaldi - like Brave, it is based on Chrome.

    I have installed brave on several Ubuntu computers and it runs fine.

    Or run firefox in a constrained environment.
    Code:
    alias fireff='firejail firefox '
    alias firepff='firejail --private firefox '
    The issue with using alternate browsers is that 1% edge cases that don't work. I do so much filtering already that breaking for blocked subnets, blocked URLs and not allowing javascrpt are already common. For really sketchy sites, I use Dillo
    Code:
    firejail --private dlllo
