Vivaldi browser

Vivaldi looks like Firefox (or Opera). Vivaldi has a clean and intuitive graphical user interface and offers many features to make this browser a great alternative to many other popular browsers. Vivaldi offers the ability to easily keep track of your open web pages using the stacked tabbed feature. Vivaldi is compatible with most Chrome extensions as Vivaldi uses the Blink rendering engine just like Google Chrome.

Opera browser

The Opera browser is a well known and good alternative to Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft’s IE and Edge. A big advantage of Opera to its competitors is the in-built Adblocker. The in-built Adblocker in Opera is way faster than every external AdBlocker out there. Opera also allows Chrome extension as the Opera browser is built on Webkit. Opera has a pop-out video feature which allows users to watch the video while browsing other tabs.

Waterfox browser

Waterfox is an alternative to the Firefox browser, Waterfox is built on the Firefox engine. However, there is a huge difference in Firefox and Waterfox. Waterfox allows the use of unsigned XUL extensions and themes. If you need security and privacy while surfing the internet we do not recommend Waterfox. Waterfox is a Firefox fork if you like the graphical user interface and speed, choose Firefox instead. Firefox is more secure.

Chromium browser

Chromium is an open-source Chrome alternative. Chromium offers the same features and privacy enhancements as Google Chrome such as syncing the browser profile with Google services, automatic updates, developer tools and HTML 5 support. Since the Chromium browser is open-source anyone can contribute to the Chromium project.

    There is also a FireFox like stripped down version that rivals WaterFox called PaleMoon that I use. It is Mozilla FireFox but without the bloatedness and all the addons though they have a place for addons for the browser but not as much. I think a lot of PaleMoon users are disliking WaterFox because it is the chief rival. There is also a Comodo IceDragon Gecko based browser that also is a Mozilla FireFox clone. The IceDragon people also did a sister browser that is Chromium based called Comodo Dragon. The Comodo group.
