My Choice of Browser

functional_js profile image Functional Javascript ・1 min read

First Choice

I use https://vivaldi.com

Vivaldi pros:

  • based on chromium so it supports chrome extensions

  • no google tracking

  • I give it a 9.5 out of 10 for custom keyboard bindings support

  • has the best bookmark organizer (implemented as left pane treeview like a File Explorer) and also dedicated bookmark manager. I've seen no other browser that competes.

  • mouse gestures; the only two I use are going backward (right-hold left click) and forward (left-hold right click) in the current tab's browse history,

Vivaldi cons:

  • has a handful of bugs, but nothing showstopping

  • is slower than Chrome and Chromium, especially with many dozens of tabs open

P.S.

They have a free web-based email service at https://webmail.vivaldi.net

Second Choice

I also recommend the raw chromium browser

mac:
brew install chromium

windows:
choco install chromium
