Post by Jørn Rudolph »

Yes - Can you recommend an alternative browser to Firefox

I Have an old stationary PC with 2 GM Ram.

Have 19.2 Linux Mint installed.

By he way : I think Firefox go down quite often.

When I had 19.1 and MATE . Firefox was more stable - Then now ....With 19.2 Xfce

I like Brave. But there is also Vivaldi or possibly Opera.

I use Waterfox. I like it so much that I wrote a tutorial about how to install it on Mint: https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2460

There's also google.com, which can be used to search the web.

1) 'Just Google it' is not an acceptable answer on this forum, because it's not friendly and really not all that helpful... and your reply is dangerously close to that. Kindly reconsider your reply. Thanks.
2) If someone trusts their fellow forum members to give good recommendations because of their previous experiences on this forum, it's pretty reasonable to ask for those recommendations. No search is likely to give the same results.

OK. I was just curious if it was a stable build or not; not much info on the download page.

I've had some success with Vivaldi, which was recommended after a site failed on Firefox. (However - that site is now failing on Vivaldi, too, so). I do like some of the add ons for Vivaldi.

You could also look at a site called "alternatives to" for suitable alternatives to any of your programs.

In Catweasel's defence, he is several centuries old, so can be a little grumpy sometimes. ;)

Yes and he lives in Antarctica where the plumbing often freezes which mean he has to use the outhouse in -50F weather with 70mph winds and blizzard conditions - this can make one grumpy as well. However Catweasel is probably the reason I stuck with LM and this forum. When I first stated with LM in 2013 it was Catweasel's help enabled me to run RAID 0 on my first LM install - Others told me it could not be done or it was, not in so many words, a bad or dumb idea to run RAID 0 on LM. I wanted to do it and Catweasel went through the long tedious exercise of showing me how. :mrgreen:

So for those who see my posts and think "oh no not him again" y'all can thank Catweasel. :mrgreen:

Well - I suppose technically we are both right
