ahh its good to have so many browsers to choose from
@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?
@lynnesbian isn't Safari WebKit which is just Chrome?
@Liophu it forked from webkit a *while* ago, but yes
@lynnesbian thanks for the clarification 💜
@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 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 You forgot Pale Moon and Basilisk ;)
@lynnesbian And don't forget Falkon and Beaker Browser too ^^
@lynnesbian if your so smart,,, make you're OWN browser!!!!!!!
@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 which is why I always used “apropos”
@buffaloser hey but how about a browser that's decentralized and ONLY supports markdown
@lynnesbian fuck everything, i'm going back to using lynx
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 you forgot elinks :'(
@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.
@lynnesbian "one ring to rule them all" -- that worked out well!
@lynnesbian Ungoogled chromium master race reporting in.
@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.
