Google Chrome is the answer . And reveals that there be no doubt that this article, beyond based on my circumstances, which can be shared or not, has a background as objective as I am personally hurt me a bit.
Since leaving Firefox 0.5 (not called or Firefox) I have been using this browser, Konqueror I left for almost two years to return to the fold with the release of Firefox 4. The reasons for leaving were two Konqueror, perfectly applicable to rekonq or QupZilla, both Qt browsers are giving most recent war (war of the good):
Need to take the best option in terms of web compatibility, more stable and above all powerful in every way.
Firefox, Chrome / Chromium and Opera (I mean all the time just to Chrome to be the most comprehensive option, talking about Chromium).
As I said, when I went back to Firefox Konqueror, and I did a detailed glad that many of you may seem ridiculous, but to me is crucial, because without it use Firefox now : Oxygen KDE (Firefox Theme). From the aesthetic point of view, Firefox is horrible in KDE environments without this issue, which has lead the ranking of KDE-Look.org and KDE-Apps.org long. A sample:
Left to right: Firefox Firefox bareback and Oxygen-GTK
Firefox with KDE Oxygen theme (Firefox Theme)
The developer of this theme has done an incredible job, but hopes to receive donations to change it (!), and donations do not come (also is at work a theme for Thunderbird). Total that ultimately end up tired and good bye.
At this point someone will say “it gives something because you love so much,” but that will not happen. First, because I see no sense to donate to something ten “insignificant”, not the project itself, but Firefox (I explain below), second because they donated to other projects that seem more important. Honestly, it’s a bad situation this example. Could you somehow “merge” the development of KDE Oxygen (Firefox Theme) with modifications that keep Firefox openSUSE developers to secure their future? This question only worsens the issue …
If you use Firefox integration in KDE and have notifications and file dialogs, it is because you use openSUSE or any other distribution that makes use of hacks openSUSE (Kubuntu , Pardus …). If you also want integration with desktop passwords portfolio, there is an extension for it, but usually always late update on new versions of the browser. And counting. Firefox can be integrated into KDE in many ways, but they are becoming obsolete as time passes, because they are all external developments (and thanks to the openSUSE guys are on the ball).
Opera, whose biggest drawback in these environments GNU / Linux is that it is proprietary software. I do give importance to it, and it simply never going to be my web browser … while alternatives are equal to or better (like Firefox and Chrome, of course). It is a shame, because it is a great application that also integrates the KDE save dialog (recently), and in its latest version, finally, the visual gradient Oxygen … and nothing else (KWallet, desktop applications, etc). Opera in KDE 11.60 :
finally see that gradient is wonderful!
is the heaviest in memory (one for each tab process has its advantages and disadvantages).
KDE environments ugly and no matter what remedy.
Use it to contribute to the monopoly of Google, without euphemisms that are worth (and now not noticed, but a couple of years …).
Although its base is Open Source (Chromium), has proprietary components.
data protection laws of the countries in which it operates (and when not, as has happened, as fine or is needed, and if not done very badly because the authorities).
include lace is the subject of extensions that Firefox continues to dominate quantity and quality , something that is not so slowly changing. Without going any further I SpringPad User Utility (notes), and the difference in quality between their extensions, Firefox and Chrome, is remarkable (as well as Chrome supports offline editing). And there are more examples, but still has to catch Firefox on that. Most important is what follows …
leitmotif article, Google Chrome also has its advantages over the rest, besides the usual fast-and then a few milliseconds are not matters so much as his save dialog integration and factory passwords , which does not offer any web browser other than Konqueror, or Opera rekonq part. I repeat: it does factory (for me with KWallet password integration is essential, to have all my passwords in one encrypted file). That is, the developers of Chrome / Chromium (mostly the latter) have been concerned integrate their application in KDE , which for the browser must represent a minimum market share, while Firefox on all these years … Anyway … (we have said up currado Opera has more on this).
So in my point of view, the main fault that I put a Chrome are its aesthetic and support a browser that does not need support , on the contrary, in addition to details pqueños not free any application in its class. The rest are advantages.
Do not you agree? Arguments, please. And remember we are talking about KDE web browsers, which come into play not only the personal tastes of each, there are points through goals too. And again, I’m sorry .
