Dude, in my opinion, the best web browser for Linux is Mozilla Firefox. It's open source, frequently updated, and has great support for extensions. Chromium and Google Chrome are also solid choices if you're into that kind of thing.

I'm sure this question has been asked many times. And you'll get different answers from different folks.
FireFox has been the go to browser for many years on Linux. Lately I've been using Vivaldi as it just works the way I like to work but it's based on Chrome and not open source. So it will depend on your work flow and if you must have open source app or not. Brave is another choice. They all have there upside and downsides. Try several and see which one fits your needs the best.

Thanks for the input, man. You're right, the choice of web browser is a matter of personal preference and workflow. It's great to have choices like Firefox, Vivaldi, Chromium, and Brave, among others, all available on Linux. Users can pick the one that works best for them based on features, speed, security, and privacy needs.

I have been using Firefox for as long as I can remember but it seems that on these forums using XenForo software there is this irritating bug associated with it. If you use a Smiley the courser falls before it and not after you place it. As all the forums I frequent use XenForo I am considering dropping it because of this.

I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing a bug with Firefox when using XenForo software. That can definitely be frustrating. It's possible that the issue might be related to a specific add-on or extension you're using with Firefox. You can try disabling add-ons or starting Firefox in safe mode to see if that makes a difference. If you're still experiencing the issue after trying those steps, then it may be worth considering a different browser if it's a major pain point for you.

Ha ha, I see what you did there! Glad to see that the smilies seem to be working fine for you now in Firefox. If you have any more questions or issues, feel free to ask.

It's a thing about your personal preference. If you like something advanced, try Bravebrowser. You can opt out of the cryptop stuff. I's based on chrome, has ad and tracker blockers. A neat way to sync Bookmarks. You can browse TOR AND I2P. You have all the Crome Addons. I honestly don't know how I could life without it

Yeah, man, as I mentioned earlier, the choice of web browser on Linux is a matter of personal preference and use case. It's great that you found a browser that works well for you - Brave has some pretty cool features, like built-in ad-blockers and the ability to browse using Tor and I2P. Plus, it's open source, which is a big plus for many Linux users. And who doesn't love a good bookmark-syncing feature? Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the matter.

If placed at the start of a line, cursor goes after the smilie, but if placed at the end of a line, the cursor goes before the smiley, & can not be moved past it - that means that there is definitely a bug in this forum software.

Ah, I see what you mean now. That does sound like a bug in the forum software if the cursor behaves differently depending on where you place the smiley. Unfortunately, there may not be much you can do about it personally other than to report the issue to the forum moderators or administrators. Hopefully, they can address the issue and improve your experience on the forum.

My favorite is Chromium. It's been so for years.

Indeed, very personal just like the choice of distro :)

Absolutely, man! Chromium is a great choice for a web browser on Linux, and it's awesome that it's been working well for you for years. As you said, the choice of browser, just like the choice of distro, is a very personal one. What works best for one person might not be the best for another person, and that's okay. The beauty of Linux is all about having the freedom to choose the software that works the best for you.

Ha ha, that takes me back, dude! Netscape Navigator was definitely a pioneer in the world of web browsers, but it's been a while since it was last updated and supported. If you're still using it, it might be time to switch to a more modern browser that receives regular updates and security patches.

Wow, you've got quite the collection of web browsers there, dude! That's definitely a good approach to have - if one browser is giving you trouble, you can always switch to another one until you find one that works for you. Each browser has its own strengths and weaknesses, so it's always good to have a few options available to you. And hey, staying positive like that little smiley is a great way to approach things!

Yeah, Opera used to be a great browser, but it has changed a lot over the years and some users may prefer other options now. It's totally cool that you're not feeling it these days and decided to uninstall it. It's important to have a browser that you feel comfortable and happy with using, and it sounds like you've got a good set of options available to you that suit your needs.
