    Re: QOTW: Which is the best mobile web browser?

    I've found firefox works a LOT better on stock Android (or near stock). For some reason it runs like ass on the Samsung and Xiaomi phones I've tested.

    Also, in case you didn't know all iOS browser(s) are just Safari with different names

    I found the opposite, I am using Firefox with LineageOS 15.1 on a Nexus 7 and it flies along.

    :-D Ha!

    I use Dolphin too, but recently I've found it gets unresponsive and doesn't scroll properly until I clear the cache. Then it works fine again. My phone is 6 years old though...

    Re: QOTW: Which is the best mobile web browser?

    I use a mixture of Chrome, Brave and Firefox Focus. Some sites don't like the rather aggressive blocking that default Brave gives so if that happens I'll switch to Firefox Focus. If I'm in a hurry, Chrome

    Firefox, maybe... as you can install extensions and set it up to be pretty private and secure.
    Brave is probably the best out of the box.

    Well if its ios you've only got Safari or reskinned Safari to choose from. On android I use Firefox because then it syncs with my desktop.

    Ads and tracking are a non-issue anyway as all the traffic goes through pi-hole before it gets near the handset.
