I see quite a lot of the same words Vladimir, but placed at different places in the sentences, which is often THE fault with these kind of translator software. The words are right, but the sentences arent naturally flowing, which can result in some twisted sentence structure... :D

Maybe my developmental disorder is affected my language :D But I think the main fault lies with online translators.

...I am aware of people's issues with Google with regards data usage and search monitoring but ALL browser developers do that. It is how they can afford to give you a browser 'free'. Better the devil you know?...
By that illogical logic, Linux (with the possible exception of Ubuntu) is no more (or is less) private than Windows because Linux is free. There are free browsers that are far more private than Google Chrome, such as Chromium or Brave (I prefer the latter).

I do not understand English .Built-in translator in the browser chromium allows me to read this forum with ease :D
How well is my Russian Vladimir?
Я должен сказать, что я всегда нахожу Chromium менее адаптивным, с меньшими настройками, которые можно изменить, как это делает Firefox, но эта программа перевода Chromium - несомненный плюс для Chromium. Я нашел сопоставимую альтернативу перевода Firefox, хотя
The meaning is clear.But it's better this way: "Я должен сказать, что нахожу Chromium менее адаптивным по сравнению с браузером Firefox ,с меньшим количеством настроек которые можно изменить.Но встроенная программа для перевода несомненный плюс браузера Chromium.Хотя я нашёл сопоставимую альтернативу для Firefox"
Perfect option : "Я хочу сказать,что нахожу Chromium менее адаптивным по сравнению с Фирефохом . Firefox даёт больше возможностей изменять настройки.Но встроенная программа для перевода несомненный плюс Хромиума . Хотя я нашёл сопоставимую альтернативу для Фирефоха."
( Not sure how is it correct in Russian letters need to write word " Firefox". "Фирефох" or "Фаерфокс" :D )

I was searching for tips of using qutebrowser when I found this thread.

Loving qutebrowser right now, despite all the coolness that comes with it, it actually works well!!
I can browse any site easily with a touch of my keyboard

All I know how to do right now is "f" tells me what keys to press for each of the element on the web.
o to open a site, hjkl for navigation, gg to go to the top, G to go to the bottom

Still using mouse for tab management, but I'm already finding myself trying to use the same shortcuts on a mainstream browser when I go back to Windows

The best part is, I haven't ran into any issues with this yet. Every site I've gone through worked flawlessly so far.

Opera is my choice of a browser and I have been using it since 1996, except for a short period of time when they charged for it. It is the innovator of browsers and has created so many of the options that we take for granted in browsers today. A few of these are thumbnails on tabs, tabs themselves, speed dial, SSR, and mouse gestures. The list goes on and on.

I liked the way they used to fight Microsoft and have battles with them over this or that back when people weren't fully aware yet of how controlling Microsoft really was. They doggedly argued for standards support for many, many years also.

Not being a fan of old-fashioned and outdated bookmarks, the natively integrated speed dial function just can't be beat by any other browser, especially the ones that require an extension for that. For years and years Opera had the fastest browser engines there were to be had in Presto, Futhark, and Carakan, which were also created in-house. Eventually, ECMAScript engines developed by Mozilla and Google surpassed Presto, etc.. and Opera switched. Now they are just like all the other ones, basically, based on Chromium's Blink.

For so many years, if you wanted to be on the cutting edge of anything new or exciting and get it first, you used Opera, and then a year or two down the road all the other browsers would copy it.

I used to keep Firefox around just because they were the King of Plugins and had one, in particular, that I really liked in .maff (Mozilla Archive Format) which zipped up and compressed web pages. It was great. That's the only time I used Firefox, actually, was when I saved a web page. After they dropped that and didn't even legacy support it any longer, I got rid of Firefox. That was a major burn as I had hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of pages saved in that format. They could no longer be opened to retain their format and looked all crazy when you had to manually unzip them and click on the html file within. Waterfox still supports .maff but, they may drop it one day too so I never installed it and just use .mhtml now.

Plus, Firefox is a little too much about causes and politics and firing people for the wrong beliefs these days for me to really ever worry about installing it again and giving it a chance.

As it stands now with Opera, I'm not real comfortable with a slave master, that abuses hundreds of thousands of the human beings he owns, controlling the browser and I'm kind of worried about what could happen security-wise with that situation, not to mention the ethical concerns. It could be time to move on.

I pretty much stick to Firefox. Firefox at least respects my privacy, just watch network history. I am not crazy about their rapid release cycle and high memory use though...

Yeah, compared to Google. I'd keep an eye on that though. It's not getting better.
