ahh its good to have so many browsers to choose from

@lynnesbian and Chrome and Safari both originate with WebKit...

@lynnesbian Edge: I do literally one good thing and that's create an actual virtualized window completely isolated from the host system without having to set up an entire virtual machine to do so

me: neat, will you be able to do that after you switch to blink?

edge: lolno

@Liophu @lynnesbian Chrome uses Blink, which is fork of WebKit. Safari uses WebKit, not Blink.

@lynnesbian Don’t forget GNOME Web and Konqueror which are both Safari and that Google Chrome is just Safari++.

@lynnesbian @slightlyflightyone (Konqueror is where this all *started*, because KHTML was actually easier to re-use, despite being for a weirdo Linux-only browser, than Mozilla's Gecko, so Apple---never one to actually write anything themselves---begrudgingly used an LGPL'd browser engine to power Safari. History might have been very different had Mozilla ever at any point made Gecko actually usable by anyone other than themselves.)

@slightlyflightyone @lynnesbian Safari is just Konqueror with a bad skin atop it that's somehow even less well maintained :D

@slightlyflightyone @lynnesbian I remember years ago when I was fiddling around with an OSX install, it was the release right after Apple transitioned from brushed metal to Aqua as their theme, and I was quite tickled that I could easily compile and run Konqueror on that, and that Konqueror automatically adopted the Aqua theme . . . while Safari had yet to be updated by Apple and so looked like some cheapass third-party browser, lol

@lynnesbian I liked edge on my low end laptop but I guess it's not gonna be the case anymore lol

@lynnesbian Konqueror (last version 4 years ago) is KHTML, which was forked to make WebKit (Safari). Epiphany and Midori are both WebKit. Pale Moon uses a fork of Gecko (Firefox) and calls it Goanna as of version 26.

@lynnesbian if your so smart,,, make you're OWN browser!!!!!!!

not saying that Linux is anti-feminism but the most important command in it is "man"

@buffaloser *lying bloodied on the floor, several limbs broken, breathing shakily* p-please... leave linux alone...

@lynnesbian Thank You For Actively Supporting The Patriarchy, Lynne

@buffaloser no... m-my Linux Idols... stallman (male)... torvalds (male)... raymond (male)... how could they betray me

@buffaloser first off, it's GNU/Linux, and I believe the command you are referring to is called "info"

@lunaterra oh, sorry, I see you're unfamiliar with non GNU-versions of Linux, AKA "True Linux":

Many Linux distributions use the word "Linux" in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.

@buffaloser @lunaterra ok. Everyone knows that by now. Get muted kiddo.
Beaker browser Is indeed interesting. Still chrome :angery:

@lunaterra @buffaloser Why are you calling yourself GNU/Girl? It's like me calling myself Bear/Man. It's nonsensical, unneccessary... and now I wanna call myself that.

@buffaloser hey but how about a browser that's decentralized and ONLY supports markdown


If someone is willing to pay me about £70k per year to sit at home and write a new browser from scratch over a period of about three years and allow the code to be released into the Public Domain (non of that copyright/left bullshit) then I'd be very happy to do so :)


@PrisonHipster @lynnesbian

No it's a totally different engine written from scratch in C.


replace all the "chrome" and "safari" with Konqueror and all the "firefox" with Netscape

@lynnesbian chrome Firefox or safari is a huge choice /s

@lynnesbian If you wanted to get really technical to add more, you could rewrite that as Safari (WebKit); Midori (WebKit).

@lynnesbian ehhhhh to be fair Tor is all about being "Firefox with Tor" so, it's not pretending to be a different browser like the rest of them.

@polychrome @lynnesbian Also managing to upstream their privacy features back into Firefox, slowly, which is hella cool :3

@lynnesbian "one ring to rule them all" -- that worked out well!

@lynnesbian i love how the cost of building a new browser engine is so fricking high that only large companies can afford it, it sure makes the #web such a great open platform, i really just... ~love~... it </snark>

@lynnesbian *voice of someone with a huge brain, that has sprouted homunculi that are playing chess against itself*: W3M


>not using WGET and cURL to browse the we

@lynnesbian Stop mixing the chrome product with the browser engine please.


I'm now using Brave ... and I'm generally quite happy with it apart from the way it's opening pdf files (it drops the url which is not always appreciable)
