I’ve been a Firefox user since the times of Netscape, but the lack of alternatives regarding a graphical browser are scary…
Palemoon? Let’s not even go there… you should all know why!
Basilisk? Well,… think about it! Hint, same devs as palemoon.
Chromium/Chrome? Thx, but no thanks! I can’t stand them or any of the forks…
I’ve been considering
luakit as an alternative for sometime. w3m is nice as term browser, but what else??? Waterfox, Seamonkey?
Now, after more then two years of inactivity Midori has been forked and it’s back. Based on webkit2gtk (not webkitgtk2).
It would be great if it could be built on NetBSD…
EDIT: The new version 7.0, released on Nov. 30th, it’s available on Void… the advantages of a rolling release distro
Will install, test and be back
EDIT 2: Ok, installed and short tested (10min!!).
-It’s slick with a very uncluttered GUI, a big plus for it.
-It uses about half the amount of RAM, when compared to Firefox.
-It’s supposed to play Youtube videos, but in this short test, it complained about missing flash… it could be because I’m using
musl libC and not the “standard” GlibC… or it could be because I should configure it to use html5!? …Something to dig a bit further into.
-It allows to use a built in “VPN”. Although, I did not test this feature.
Looks and feels nice. I could probably use it a bit longer and maybe even change to it on NetBSD if it would be available.
