In my experience Opera has worked best with Peppermint on my machines.  I like Vivaldi but have found it to be a bit slow.  Iridium is fast but I'm not sold on its security.  YMMV, however.   ;)

I'm a long time Firefox user.

But if you're looking for something to keep you busy, why not try getting Farmville to work in Lynx :)
just in case you didn't spot it .. that's my weird sense of humour at work)

All of the above are tried, tested and trusted  ;).  If you're looking for something a little different, try Vivaldi: https://vivaldi.com/.  Select the DEB file for your machine, 32-bit or 64-bit.  Double click on the download to install.   This is now compatible with Peppermint's ICE application  ;).  You could also try Pale Moon: https://www.palemoon.org/.   This is built from a fork of the Firefox/Mozilla code.  To install:
Code: [Select]
cd ~ && wget http://linux.palemoon.org/datastore/release/pminstaller-0.2.3.tar.bz2
Extract the tarball contents by double clicking on it.  In the Nemo file manager in your /home folder, locate the script, pminstaller.sh.  Double click on it and select, Run.  Enter your user password and follow the on screen instructions.   You could go superlight with Mirdori.  This one is in the repository.  To install it run the following command in a terminal window:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install midori
I hope this helps - have fun  ;).

Well, if you're looking for alternatives Peppermint's default, Chromium, there's always Comodo Dragon, SRWare Iron, Epix, Yandex and Torch.  ::)  (not to mention Opera, but that one is a bit less obvious)

+1

I prefer the dev branch, but the stable ver was recently updated to include the features I liked the most, in the dev release.

Heh !  Does that make sense ?

Put another way, I like them both equally, today.

Did I mention, it provides *FREE* unlimited VPN ?   8)

Opera has had a bit of a facelift of late. Does the job for me.

I use Firefox on Peppermint.
Have Chrome sandboxed for Netflix use... somehow it doesn't work with Firefox, although it should according to the website.

When was that?
It's not working for me...
Maybe because I'm in Sweden...

A good previous discussion on Alternative browsers, if you're still undecided

I usually have 3 browsers installed.  ( Firefox, Slimjet and Opera )

My standard browser is Slimjet. 
http://www.slimjet.com/?lang=en

I like Opera too because of the free VPN. Especially in Win10 ( I need it for some apps like Word ).

In linux, I usually install Bitmask and surf anonymously.
https://bitmask.net/install

Why firefox ?
Because sometimes streaming videos will not play in Opera or Slimjet (which is based on chrome), but they play in firefox.

FF has "supposed" to have supported Netflix DRM for the last couple of releases .. but I don't have a Netflix account so can't test it.
