Hey guys. What's a good browser besides FF, which I could possibly use for testing stuff in browsers besides FF? It must have Adblock+ and NoScript add-ons.

I was thinking of Chrome, but I'm worried about privacy with a Google web browser..

So what should I use as a secondary browser!? Opera!? :S

Take a look at Multi Engined Lunascape Browser. See if that fits your needs?

I would strongly recommend the Comodo Dragon browser. It is a Chromium based browser but with all the Google tracking stuff removed and Comodo have made it very secure. It is also compatible with most Chrome add-ons including Ad-Block Plus Beta for Chrome browsers. I used FF for a long time and liked it fine but decided to try Dragon for a while and then made it my default browser as it is so secure. My weekly Superantispyware scan would usually find a couple of tracking cookies even though I used NoScript and AdBlock Plus on Firefox but since using Dragon I haven't had one.

I haven't yet used Lunascape, but I can vouch for the browser from what I've read and viewed on You Tube about it, and they also are compatible with Firefox add-ons.  Although this is an old thread, the mention of Lunascape caught my eye.

 

How would you regard their privacy policy for users' data?:

One site says that Lunascape leaves a folder behind when being uninstalled, but if anything, that sounds like the standard uninstallation situation whereby certain traces are left behind, so very unlikely an issue of concern.

 

As far as I know, all browsers pass on analytics to Google or other third parties and users' data is literally unidentifiable as stated, but if Lunascape are discreet in their usage of data of people who use their browser, I might give them a go.  I certainly like their multi-platform system of combining a few different browsers into one and their wide scope of customising options.  They have Japanese roots and are now also based in the USA.
