all the replies like "but what about [obscure browser]" are missing the point -- these are the most popular browsers in the world. the top eight browsers are all based on three browsers.

you can also be pedantic and say that chrome is also safari, because it was forked from webkit five years ago. you can trace webkit back to KHTML, too, and you can also trace firefox back to netscape, but those distinctions aren't useful for this image. there's a massive difference between chromium and safari.

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

@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

@lynnesbian

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

@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

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

@lynnesbian Dang I forgot Vivaldi is based on Chrome. I may have to use Dooble more then.

@lynnesbian Payback for everyone dismissing Konqueror back in the day. From hell's heart KHTML stabs at thee!

@lynnesbian There are a bunch of webkit-based browsers too, if you're willing to go off-road.

alcinnz@floss.social is working on some stuff, not sure how far along we can think that is. floss.social/@alcinnz/10137150

@lynnesbian tech pedants have never met a point they couldn’t miss

@lynnesbian
tbf my lynx mention was a shitpost, and for the sake of my sanity I'm trying to be ignorant of the fact that we're pretty much running headfirst into a Google monopoly of the internet and there's very little I can do about it beyond supporting either Mozilla (which is certainly better in terms of power, but isn't exactly tiny) or freaking Apple.

@lynnesbian the real question will probably be: How long will it take for Google to ask Mozilla Foundation to do the same (or withdraw their generous funding)?

@deathy if firefox switches to chromium, we will lose the last major non-google browser

@lynnesbian Firefox is better than chrome in most ways, i don't know why people keep submitting themselves to chrome.

@lynnesbian This is hilarious and sad at the same time, like a lot of truefacts are

@lynnesbian
Remember when Internet Explorer won the "browser war"? Neither does Microsoft.

@lynnesbian I sometimes use Dooble but I can't figure out how to update it so it can play video 😕

@lynnesbian what I don't understand is how Edge aims to differentiate itself from other browsers whilst embracing Chromium. Are MS still hoping people are too lazy to switch from the default OS browser, or will it offer something people actually want?

@lynnesbian Chrome uses blink which is a fork of webkit which safari uses btw.

@amsomniac @lynnesbian is old Edge the end of the line for the NCSA Mosaic codebase? 🥺
