After the news on firefox, I'm looking for ethical web browser and to my dismay, I can't find one that is not linked to microsoft or google.
What the heck!?

@globcoco Them laying of people does not alter the fact it is opensource afaik. I do understand the feeling but one could ask if that is a valid choice.

1. Waterfox
2. Chromium (yes, linked but oss)
3. Basilisk
4. Pale Moon
5. Brave
6. Dooble

When you want something really nice you could try links :-)

@hansw
Yes it is open source but they have been partnering with microsoft and thus I wonder if it is good anymore. I use it right now but things can change.
I know all of the ones you mentioned but dooble I dont.
Btw, not all open source app or software is ethical...

PS : what do you mean by "When you want something really nice you could try links"?

Thanks for the names.

Cheers

@globcoco links is a text base browser 🙂

When they work with MS they might simply work with the w3c org. They set the standards for all browsers.

B.t.w., MS is also submitting patches for the Linux kernel.

@hansw

Nice, I'll look into this.

I know about MS but something in their approach is... not reassuring.

@globcoco True, but it is controlled and accessible in the code.

@globcoco If they change it they will have thousands of co writers on their neck, there is this license. You can simply fork it and move on when needed
