What? On Manjaro, right now, I have the choice of Firefox, Brave, Pale Moon, Vivaldi, Chromium, Chrome, and Opera.

Microsoft has confirmed that the Edge browser will be available for Linux. Aren't you lucky.

I used Chrome until about two years ago or so... I don't even remember what the final straw was that made me toss it aside. But I haven't seen anything since then to make me think I might go back...

if you go to netmarketshare you'll see that Vivaldi is at 0.04%, brave is not listed.
Reddit post said that brave is listed as chromium.

Wait, wasnt there a delete button before?

It was there but it was never able to be used by anyone other than Blue or moderators. So they removed it during the resdesign since it was useless to 99.9% of the posters.

Many people predicted that. Not hard to see anyway, because FF kept falling and falling because they didnt listen to their users.
Germany is the only stronghold they have left, because people are slow there and because its a Linux stronghold as well (no other proper browser for Linux available)..
I stopped using it too after using it since its release. Their extension API change was the last nail in the coffin and they have been dying a slow suffocation death since then.
There are lots of alternatives that dont have the disadvantages of the big ones. Im using Vivaldi personally.

My Pinebook Pro, which is probably at least slightly below "low end laptops", would disagree with you. Firefox is fast. One might even describe it as "snappy".

Seriously, why are people using bloated Chrome or Edge? Firefox and the available addons/plugins is a far superior browser.

It has to be mostly the user data from phones, to explain this sort of favoritism for Chrome.
From the article
“numbers are for the desktop browser market”

Why do people use data slurping chrome.
1. They don’t know any better.
2. On low end laptops, of which there are bazillions, chrome runs circles around Firefox.

Ran Chrome for a while... then didn't want to feed the Google data slurping monster and switched to Chromium... then about a year and a half ago... switched back to FF.

I do like the direction of more ant-tracking that FF is going for... but it is woefully short compared to running ublock origin with no 3rd party scripts and 3rd party frames set globally. Thankfully you can get that extension on FF too.

Firefox x64 DE is what I recommend to everyone, and have recommended for years. It's Mozilla's official 64-bit browser (not 3rd-party x64)--far better than Edge, imo. Chrome--the perpetual beta Chrome--really sucks by comparison--imo, of course. I'm very skeptical about the Net stats, always have been. Sort of like political polls--completely off-the-wall and unreliable until 8:30 pm or so on election day--when they miraculously begin getting it right, somehow...;)

Anyhoo, Edge is much inferior to FF DE x64, so there's just no reason to believe these stats. While I certainly believe a lot of people are trying it I think most of them will mirror my experience, comparatively. Chrome is always in a beta incarnation--but Edge is much closer to being alpha! I've tried Edge several times--I'm in the Win10 beta-testing program ("Insiders,"--feel free to join, it's open to the public now, etc.) so I see advanced builds of the OS and the Edge browser long before the public sees them--and the best way to sum up my experience with Edge is to say that it's extremely awkward. Weird thing about Edge is (among many weird things) that I cannot put my favorites/bookmarks on the left side of the browser GUI in a vertical column...Edge just says "no" to that. After having dinged Microsoft several times through the beta-tester's Hub, and at length about this issue, it doesn't look like this is going to happen. After using Edge I'm convinced Microsoft mandated this GUI favorites placement simply to appear "different"...;) No other reason--merely superficial. While I never much used Internet Explorer, either--Netscape/Communicator was better, imo--I note that even as far back as IE, Microsoft allowed you to put your favorites column of links anywhere you want them--left or right! But not so with Edge. It seems an exercise in being different merely to be different, with all other concerns merely a secondary consideration.

Don't let the "DE" for developer's edition scare you. If you do not develop web pages, you simply use it just like a regular browser and never see the developer capabilities unless you want to. But, if all you want is a 64-bit version of Firefox also officially supported and updated (not third party), then that's available, too.


It is well known universally that I do not make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in that which I have written, please be assured that *I* did not write it!...:)
