Anyone know of a good alternative/fork to Firefox since they have just made themselves a 3rd rate browser?

See https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2016/11/23/add-ons-in-2017/ and https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2017/01/24/preventing-add-ons-third-party-software-from-loading-dlls-into-firefox/

Just 12 weeks before it was set to a happen did they notify developers right after most of them took a retarded amount of time rewriting all their code for multi-process support.

So basically what I am looking for is a fork of Firefox that doesn't try to copy chrome.

Have you actually used and tested any of those?

I have SeaMonkey installed for a couple of years now and use it occasionally. Not nearly as many extensions available for it as for Firefox. UI features that I have grown to like in Firefox, like "Tabs on Top", aren't available, but it is more usable with the SeaFox extension to make SeaMonkey look and act a bit more like Firefox 3.0 menus and for hiding non-browser features like Mail and the Addressbook. Seems "stuck' perpetually in 2004 as far as the look and feel. Not a "fan" of the 'word processor application' type Options / Preferences panel, but it has had the basic "about:" protocols added in recent years. It is a continuation of the old Mozilla Suite which evolved from the original Netscape browser in 1999' the "Suite" is what Firefox was built from back in 2002 - 2004, until Mozilla "lost its love" for the Suite and handed it off to "the community" while still providing logistics, hosting, and other support.

Also have PaleMoon installed to keep up with what Moonchild Productions is doing with it. It was a Gecko-based browser in the past (before Firefox 29 came out) but was transitioned into being a Goanna-based engine. Works a lot like Firefox 4.0 with that stoopid orange "Firefox" button, which is why I couldn't consider it a serious browser; that was the silliest UI that Mozilla ever used in Firefox.

I used K-Meleon a bit back in 2004 - 2006, but never got the "hang" of it. Few to none of the customization techniques from Firefox were usable, so it was like learning the 'tricks' of working with a new browser. Serious lack of extensions is basically kept me from spending much time learning the 'tricks' to modify it.

Played with Flock when it was Gecko-based, before it went with WebKit. Like in 2005 - 2006. And as silly as it sounds, the pastel UI appearance is what "turned me off" from using it for very long, along with the feature set it was adding during its first year of existence. Early adopter of "social" features in the pre-smart phone era of the internet.

Tried various other 3rd-party builds in the mid-00's that I found in the Third Party/Unofficial Builds forum over at mozillaZine fora. About the only one that is still built is "Light" - https://sourceforge.net/projects/lightfirefox/

Maybe I will give Palemoon a try. Hopefully it doesn't used the google copy cat chrome look. Anyone else want to provide some feedback on other browser's?
