Web Browsing

Brave

Three times faster than Chrome, plus protection from Google, plus a secure crypto-wallet — that’s what they promise, but you know what they say about things that sound too good to be true.

Browserosaurus

When you click on a link, a menu displays with your installed web browsers. Choose the one you want.

Chrome

If you use and trust Google apps such as Gmail, Google Pay, and Google Assistant, then this is the browser for you. Just keep in mind that you pay with your data.

Firefox

The non-profit open source effort from Mozilla, often updated, with a huge collection of add-ons. Fast, private and secure.

Fluid

Create site-specific mini-web browsers for your web apps, so that they launch like desktop programs in your dock. Great for checking Gmail, for example.

Ghostery

Find out who is tracking you on the web — ad networks, data providers, publishers and other companies. Learn more about them and decide who you want to block.

LastPass

If you’re looking for a way to save all the logins and passwords you use at various websites, you can’t do much better than 1Password. However, the free version of LastPass — acting as a browser extension — covers many of the basic functions. It comes highly recommended by PCMag, and is worth a look if you need something free.

Opera

Browse fast, secure and ad-free, chat directly in your browser, easily connect your devices share files. Surf with enhanced privacy and free VPN.

Orion

A web browser based on Webkit — the same as Safari. No tracking or ads by default. Supports extensions not only from Safari, but also Chrome and Firefox. In beta as of this writing.

Sea Monkey

Powered by Mozilla, it’s a web browser, an e-mail and newsgroup client, an IRC chat client and a web page creator all rolled into one.

Tor

Remain anonymous on the Internet while web browsing, messaging or remote logins. Works with many existing clients to bounce your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world.

Ungoogled Chromium

Google Chrome is based on the open source Chromium. Without all the dependencies added by Google, Chromium is faster, safer and more private.

Velja

Open links in the browser or matching app of your choice. Custom rules let you open links based on which app the link was clicked in.

Vivaldi

Lots of highlights, but you can go as minimal as you want. Enjoy the built-in ad and tracker blocker, email client and notes manager. Also: build your own browser themes and translate highlighted text.
