Vivaldi

I still consider Vivaldi experimental, and on my machine it has some quirks, but it's the best option I can find for the future. Once more quirks are worked out, I'm hoping it will be the best solution: the interface customization of (classic) Firefox with the speed and usability of Chromium.
I use Iron for speed and Firefox for most things (BUT I WILL NOT INSTALL ONE OF THE NEWEST VERSIONS, which is NOT traditional Firefox, but some "new" browser called "Quantum" and doesn't support any of my extensions I'm used to.)

Although Firefox won for the 15th straight year and the 14th straight year with a majority vote, I'm heartened that Pale Moon did the best among browsers outside of Firefox and Google's browsers. You should give Pale Moon a try if you haven't already.

New Moon is the Windows XP/Vista mod for Pale Moon by roytam1.

If K-Meleon was available for Linux I'd have picked it by far but it is only available on Windows, and if I wasn't late, I'd have gone for Pale Moon - Goanna is really a good engine.

Anything is possible, I guess, but there is no mention of it at their web site.

I remember K_Meleon from my Windows days.
openSUSE only has newmoon available in the base repo (on TumbleWeed), palemoon (in a separate repo) points to newmoon.

That brings back memories. K-Meleon is an ace browser alright. I'm surprised a GNU/Linux version never happened.

I was hoping that this thread might give me an idea of what to replace Firefox with on my old laptop, which finds it a bit of a strain, but everyone else seems to be using Firefox. And few of those who do use something else have any enlightening comments.

I've tried Netsurf, only to find it won't access duckduckgo. The bug was reported 2 years ago, and nothing happened: no wonder no-one wants it. Now I'm trying to get to grips with Vivaldi, although it doesn't seem much lighter than Firefox.
