^ Lol ... is that a screenshot of the thread in w3m Pidsley ?
Touch my monkey, touch my monkey ..... please touch my monkey ! Oh oh ohhhhh ! Being a dork obviously, its one of those weird mood kinda days for me folks.
However ... my monkey is very disappointed that nobody will touch it.
Would bytch about Ew hijacking my thread dang it. Except for the fact that I've been profusely participating in hijacking the thread too. Lmao ... try not to be a hypocrite .. sighs.
Really though this is not a this browser vs that browser, this one should be default, no that one. I "like" this feature or layout ... no that suks kinda topic, pin-priority 1001 Pidsley thoughts on it imo. Again though ... everything you mention depends upon x endusers preferences and/or skillz in how abc web browser behaves.
Being anal am going to make a comment though The home icon placement thing. In every major web browser including FF/IW-etc + Chrome + Opera ... The default keyboard shortcut is Alt + home ( key on your keyboard.) Takes you to your homepage. They all have many of the same default keyboard shortcuts.
Also customizing toolbars and layouts in Fireweasel and kin. Takes all of 1min ( unless it's an ancient version anyway) ... Drag and drop the friggin home icon wherever you want ... done. Anyway ... I'm further derailing this already hopelessly derailed thread ... arghhh. Again +1001 Pidsley, by all means use the browser you like. Am not saying my choice of browser is better than yours. Or install em all lol. No biggie.
Ahhhh ! Anal edit take 2 ... why not ?
Also your thoughts on plugins slowing down Fireweasel-etc and not doing likewise in Chrome/ium. Even though am not willing to fire up Chrome and test it. Believe common sense dictates it couldn't be so, jmo ... Also again ... that issue is imo again stemming from the likely fact that you haven't learned much about Fireweasel. There are many solutions to prevent that. Me personally I tend to disable plugins when not using them. Takes 10secs to enable them when I actually want to use x feature.
Orrrrr setup diff mozilla profiles for diff purposes. Someone can setone up for general browsing, one for web dev, one for their gf to use etc etc blahblahblah. It's very easy and also very easy to set up diff key shortcuts or openbox menu options to launch them using a specific mozilla profile, shrugs.
Nother random tip: Applies to Fireweasel + Chrome .. Install bleachbit ( 1st learn to use it though ... don't just install and run wild running it.) It defrags FF/IW sqlite databases and Chromes/iums, shrugs. Which is supposed to be good mojo.

- apt-mark hold account
Bows to Pvsages ... sage like wisdom.
Plus .... awwwww shucks, thanks for the kind words about me occasionally saying summin that makes sense. Also no insult or offense intended towards Ew. Nothing posted here was meant that way. So apologize Ew if any of it was taken thataway. Just offering opinions on stuff that's been said. I can and LITERALLY have spent dys babbling about web browsers.

Annoyingbeggar .. for one thing ... I like your username.
For another ... as usual totally off topic. Look into Fireweasel tweaks for low speed dial up connections. They are most certainly diff ... Been so long since been on 56k +/- couldn't dredge up some suggestions if wanted to. Plus mozilla based has changed, tweaks that used to work in older versions clearly no longer work in latest versions.
Basically saying if you feel like it ... take the matter up w google jmo.
Could one of the mods close this thread gone awry from hades ? Debated asking for deletion ... Is some interesting info or discussion here me thinks. Think that'd be drastic ... I know I don't like it when/if I spend time typing aka: contributing stuff and have it canned. Seems reasonable to assume others dislike it as much too, @ worst close and let this frigger die a timely death ? Op request/etc. Jmo this thread is going nowhere fast by this point anyway. Do a nigga a favor and close please ?
Thanks in advance ...
