Have you tried a chrome clone, e.g., Vivaldi?

I have heard of but never tried Vivaldi.

Could not get FF or Chromium to do everything anyone would do on todays interweb. (E.g.: school, work, Netflix,,, &c... without a hassle.)

Antonio Vivaldi on the other ear! https://youtu.be/NqAOGduIFbg

Vivaldi is based on Chromium. Big difference.
Now, back on topic. Not getting into any browser talk here.

I can tell you that the next time I set up Fedora, the first thing I install is going to be gnome-shell-extension-appindicator. I can't believe Fedora doesn't have that installed and enabled by default.

My base install is usually a form of Ubuntu (xfce at the moment) so assume the usual stuff is installed with that.

Google chrome
libreoffice if not installed but it always is
emacs extras if needed
my .emacs file
PCManFM as a second file manager that works better with graphics than most others
r and r studio, related items
gimp if not installed
vlc if not installed
inkscape
gnumeric
kdenlive
okular
vmware to run scrivener on Windows 10

Assuming that the desktop environment is already fully installed:
GNU Emacs, Fossil (because that's where my dotfiles are), a mail client and a web browser - which ones, depends on the system.

I usually go VLC too, works well. Gimp, Xmoto, VirtualBox, OpenOffice, Aptitude and Synaptic package manager :to name a few more.

This thread reminds me of the member's choice awards, kind of fun finding a new software to check out.

You know, there are tools like Ansible, Kickstart, etc for that.
