    Fecking Google dictatorship.

    They recently started displaying a really crappy search interface to anyone using an old browser to "encourage" people to upgrade. I got around this, with my old version of Opera, by setting the user agent string to spoof as a recent version of Firefox.

    K-Meleon uses the following spoofed user agent string because stupid sites like Google won't accept more obscure browsers like K-Meleon.

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/31.0 K-Meleon/75.1
    Scoots still says that Apr 2020 didn't mark the start of a new stock bull market.

      Charlotte and Lynx. Probably the safest browsers around

        I've found K-Meleon by far the best. It's fast and lean. Uses much less memory and cpu than others, so great for older/lower spec PCs. It's configurable in an intuitive way, and it's easy to import bookmarks from other browsers.

        I'm currently using the latest stable release with the Gecko engine.

        K-Meleon

        What's your choice of browser?
        Chrome for me always. First choice.

            I used to use safari, but following an update it decides which tabs it will close, without warning or means of retrieval.

              I sometimes wish it would do that to me. I must have a hundred or so scattered around a dozen windows at the moment

                  Opera - the inbuilt VPN is really handy.

                    I tried Opera (on win 10 desktop) as of yesterday & really like it. Thanks for mentioning it.
                    It's certainly as good as Firefox or Edge.

                      It's not been suggsted yet. But for the ultra paranoid the Tor browser is very good.

                      It's based on Firefox but uses a network of encrypted peers before breaking onto the public internet at a random node.
                      It's likely that a large amount of the exit nodes are run by the US government so don't bother with any anti-US espionage but for most other activity it's very private.
