Re: The best browser of 2013 Reply #25 – 2015-06-26, 04:58:00 Quote from: smaragdus on 2015-06-26, 03:37:21Is it true that there is a single developer behind Otter project? If so this is a mammoth task.There's always just one leader. There are a few more contributors. So, yes, it's a small team. For Fifth browser there's really just one developer and this makes it a very hard mammoth task.Quote from: smaragdus on 2015-06-26, 03:37:21I tested SeaMonkey but not all Firefox add-ons (the main reason I still stick to Firefox) are compatible with SeaMnkey.I know Seamonkey since before Firefox existed. Seamonkey was called Mozilla. Firefox (first named Phoenix and then Firebird) was created to be the lighter version of Mozilla. Now Seamonkey is the lighter and more feature-rich version of Firefox instead. I also haven't gotten some Firefox add-ons to work with Mozilla, but I decided I don't need them so badly anyway. Which add-ons do you use?Quote from: smaragdus on 2015-06-26, 03:37:21Then I reverted to resurrected K-Meleon but it lacks many features I need. Which features specifically?I used to use K-Meleon once upon a time when I was on Windows.Quote from: smaragdus on 2015-06-26, 03:37:21I had a look at Midori but I wasn't impressed.For some people, Midori still looks like an option - it's the default browser in a bunch of distros. Not to me. Lately the developers seem to have run out of ideas and now the maintenance only consists in removing options that it once had, like with Firefox. For example Midori doesn't allow hiding the tabbar anymore when only one tab is open. This option is patched into Midori only in Linux Mint. Quote from: smaragdus on 2015-06-26, 03:37:21With few exceptions (SeaMonkey, Pale Moon, K-Meleon, Otter) all browsers have been dumbed town beyond usability. I dream of a browser that doesn't suck.How about Qupzilla?I always used several browsers side by side for several tasks. For example it's easiest (and probably safest) to use one browser for the websites where you need to be logged in, i.e. cookies turned on, and a whole different browser for the rest of the web with cookies turned off. Opera was the browser that did many things I needed in one. For example I liked its elaborate custom styles ability, so that the entire web was presented in the same fonts and colours. Now I use Elinks for this.
