    Absolutely amazing!

    LibreWolf just makes my work easier and faster, it only needs some configuration and you're done. To be honest uBlock-Origin is the best Ad-Block in my opinion, it's the only one I can trust for privacy!

    🏁 Competitors: Brave, Vivaldi, Opera, Whale, Microsoft Edge
    πŸ‘ Pros:    Privacy

  • For advertising: Firefox now collects user data by default
    Https://librewolf.net/ And fallback to Firefox when things don't work. Which is usually on sketchy websites, websites that have heavy bot protection and fingerprinting or ones that use gpu APIs. - Source: Hacker News / 8 days ago
  • "Privacy-Preserving" Attribution: Mozilla Disappoints Us yet Again
    Https://librewolf.net/ - only a few tweaks to enable/disable to have sessions persist across quitting and re-opening but - as with any software updates, us users always suffer in having to re-check over all options to see what things changed on us (if we're lucky and get an option). - Source: Hacker News / 9 days ago
  • Ad-tech setting 'Privacy-Preserving Attribution' is opt-out in Firefox 128
    > D. The main problem with ads is that they stimulate more unnecessary consumption The main problem with ads is... I do not want them. My computer, my electricity, my network, my ISP contract, my privacy, my life and my decision. https://librewolf.net/. - Source: Hacker News / 11 days ago

  • Mercury – Compiler optimized, private Firefox fork
    Wasn't this niche already occupied by https://librewolf.net/ ? - Source: Hacker News / 5 months ago
  • Brave's AI assistant now integrates with PDFs and Google Drive
    Cromite[0] is the best on Android, it's a privacy-oriented open source patchset on top of Chromium. Cromite has a desktop build, but it's a bit more experimental than the mobile build, so you can use Ungoogled Chromium[1] instead. Ungoogled is also a privacy-oriented open source patchset on top of Chromium. Check the beta flags to enable some more interesting features like getClientRect anti-fingerprinting... - Source: Hacker News / 5 months ago
  • Firefox built-in spyware that cannot be disabled
    You are incorrect. Please take a look at the default preferences that they ship, as they are a large and important part of it. Literally on the front page: https://librewolf.net You're here to astroturf for Mozilla or Google, aren't you? - Source: Hacker News / 6 months ago
  • F-Droid, Keyboard Libraries, and Choosing a Browser
    This also prompted a change beyond my phone: I've left behind Chrome and Firefox on my Windows and Linux machines in favor of Librewolf, a privacy and security-focused Firefox fork for desktops. The experience has been painless and I wish I had just made the switch earlier. I did activate Firefox sync (which is by default disabled in Mull and Librewolf) and have had a smooth experience across my devices. So far so... - Source: dev.to / 6 months ago
  • Brave browser simplifies its fingerprinting protections

  • DuckDuckGo is working on a privacy-focused desktop browser on OS-provided rendering engines.
    Try Librewolf. It's a privacy fork so out of the box it may break some sites; uBlock Origin is preinstalled, some configurations are altered and additional configs are added. However, you can change the configurations such that it lets you do what you want. Some configurations are locked out of the box, but I believe it's possible to enable overriding the new configurations. Main site:... Source: over 2 years ago

  • If You Care About Privacy, It’s Time to Try a New Web Browser
    Librewolf is updated at the same rate as FF is, has uBlock Origin built in, telemetry is removed, and a bunch of other security configs that you have to manually disable in FF are disabled by default. It has canvas fingerprint prevention built in as well. Just download FF, and using either homebrew or mac developer tools, just copy and paste the repositories into terminal https://gitlab.com/librewolf-community. Source: over 3 years ago
