Adding browsers to Ice
« on: February 05, 2020, 07:03:41 am »
Is there any way to add new browsers to Ice?
Ice offers support for only 4 browsers, Chrome, Chromium, Vivaldi and Firefox. I have installed some extra browsers such as Opera and Tor, so, is there any way to make Ice support them through a plugin or editing some configuration files?

My understanding is that it is not possible at this time.  The browsers are hard coded into to the ice app.

Well, could you, please, guide me where to place it as a feature request, either adding those browsers to the Ice, or making it possible to, dynamically, adding new browsers?

Not sure where to guide you at this point.  Our Leader, who would have worked on such things, has recently passed away and we are in process of determining our path forward.  It is a sad time for Team Peppermint.

If I remember correctly, only Brave browser could be added to Ice and to do so you would have to replace one of the other browsers with it.

I think this is the one here
