Don't get me wrong, i love Firefox, but im just looking for anew browser. what do you guys recommend? (PC)

 

I've heard Vivaldi is good, as well as pale moon, and Avant.

 

 

looking for:

faster browsing

Browser that can support addon's eg. AdBlock Plus, HackBar etc.

Can support themes/colors (i like dark colors)

bookmarks like Firefox has under the Address bar

 

 

LEAST amount of security flaws preferred, there's always a flaw somewhere so i don't expect it to be 100% sealed.

 

 

 

Was thinking about going with Vivaldi, what does BC recommend? (NOT google Chrome)

Uh maybe Google Chrome ? Its quite fast and supports a decent amount of addons and themes and i guess it also has a familiar bookmark interface like the one Firefox has.

not with the new update, i despise google, i don't even use their search engine nor gmail.

 

ill check into other Chromium based browsers, but not Google Chrome, wayy to much data gets sent back.

 

 

Thank you for your suggestion! :)

Try Slimjet browser.  It is a Chrome-based browser and looks and feels very much like Google Chrome but it is not Google Chrome.  You can set a bookmarks bar under the address bar.  Chrome extensions available just like in Google Chrome.  Slimjet is one of my favorite browsers.     http://www.slimjet.com/

I asked the same thing a while back, specifically for linux, but the discussion took some interesting turns;

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/614700/secondary-browser-optionsopinions-for-mintubuntu/

 

As to some of the ones you've already mentioned, I like Pale Moon and use it on Puppy Linux.  It's based on Firefox before Mozilla started trying to turn it into Chrome.  It does support add-ons, but you may have to find some alternates-I had to switch from AdBlockPlus and Ghostery to UBlock Origin and Disconnect for it-NoScript works though.

 

Vivaldi looks promising, but it's still very new, so I decided to wait a while.

 

As for Chrome-like you, I really don't like anything google related.

 

Have fun looking. :thumbup2:


Gen. Barker - You haven't heard the last of this!!

Hawkeye Pierce - I wasn't listening to the first of it...

I have a few I've enjoyed in the past

 

UC Browser is faster than Chrome, at least on my machine - http://www.ucweb.com/international/pcbrowser/ucbrowser/

 

Avant Browser has a different look and feels more distinctive than any of the others. Just browsing with it is enjoyable - http://www.avantbrowser.com/download.aspx?uil=en

 

Opera I'm a sucker for the colors and it runs Chrome extensions and Opera's personal ones - http://www.opera.com/

i refuse to use anything google related, otherwise i would, also i don't need 5 chrome processes running like chrome likes to do.

 google sends way to much data back to be sold to 3rd parties (every company does that in some way shape or form even your grocery store does it )
