Which browser should be default in Foresight Lxde?

It’s time to get involved into Foresight Lxde.

We are currently using chromium as default in Lxde, but firefox and opera handles flash (youtube) alot better. Uses less cpu. Chromium starts alot faster than Firefox. Opera renders some webpages much faster than chromium and firefox.

Let’s start voting for the browser that would be as default in Foresight Lxde. Give us a comment if you got some information about the browsers.

To install the browsers in Foresight and test them:

sudo conary install chromium=foresight.rpath.org@fl:2-devel
sudo conary install firefox=foresight.rpath.org@fl:2-devel
sudo conary install opera=foresight.rpath.org@fl:2-devel


[poll id="2"]

Can only choose 2 out of 3 in the poll.


We recommend to run: http://peacekeeper.futuremark.com and see which browser will generate best results. Only chromium have full html5 support.
