I think I'm going to actively work to just not support Chromium-based browsers in my personal site in the future as a form of protest. Firefox is free, faster and can run in a lot of environments.
There's also Falkon, Epiphany, Beaker, GNOME Web and other Web browsers. We need to stop using them; stop supporting them and stop giving them what they want: US.
@jalcine Tell me about it!
@jalcine Isn't Beaker Chromium-based? I'm using Opera at the moment, which turns out is also Chromium-based. And previously Brave, which, wait for it.. is also Chromium-based.
@jalcine Even better, Firefox Focus.
I'm not sure if many androids use it yet but think it'll become increasingly common for them to use monochrome- where the chrome app also provides the webview (saves having to have a whole load of code duplicated on the device)
Disabling chrome in these cases also disables the webview and is likely to break a whole load of unexpected apps (eg. I was surprised loads of bits of K9 mail didn't work with webview disabled) also my WiFi turned on & the UI to turn it off didn't work!
@crushv It's better than using nothing / doing nothing. I'm not about the "all or nothing" approach. Change is doable in any velocity.
@succfemboi KHTML yeah; that was closer to when I was born IIRC lol
@jalcine Epiphany/GNOME Web is based on WebKit, pre Chrome fork, so it's good.
Instead of not supporting them, make it look like Chromium makes your site bug :^)
How's Brave browser as an alternative?
@boilersuit that works, I guess?
