What is a good browser to use on android?
Brave sounds good, but not.
Chrome... Is, well.. G.
I tried but it seems broken, hardly works at all.
I lied, I'm sorry. I was thinking of the default browser. 😞
Duckduck works pretty good, I forget why I started looking for another one.
The fact that it solved the viewport resize problem on scrolling away from the navbar makes it a win for me. That and I like the disposable browser history. One click and it all gets purged.
For those of us who don't want to be logged into everything all the time it's great.

Firefox Klar or Orfox
@robjloranger @switchingsocial I'm using #Firefox Klar, as it is the most private option I know. When I found the information I was looking for, I just press the little Trash icon and my browsing session gets deleted.
Sometimes I also use the "Privacy Browser" on @fdroidorg (https://f-droid.org/app/com.stoutner.privacybrowser.standard) Many useful features, and frequent updates (~ weekly). And no content warnings on fdroid!
@robjloranger @SoRedTheRose I use Firefox on Android, myself; it works fine on semi-modern devices. Note though that Firefox Focus uses the system WebView underneath, whereas Firefox proper uses its own engine. I've had occasions for both; in particular, I find Firefox Focus better as a system default due to the implicit clear-everything, and Firefox proper better for explicit invocation. But it's an important distinction if you're trying to get away from the Google-based engine dependency.
@robjloranger I use Firefox and Opera Mini. Not much of a difference in UX, except that Firefox is a bit more reliable.
@robjloranger @email@example.com I've found blink messes up some webpages on mobile (completely fails to understand 'width' properly so it fubars my website). Firefox's engine displays it fine as any remotely good browser should. I'd go with that or a Firefox-based browser.
Firefox+Noscript is the best solution in my opinion. If having problems with some website, and you don't want to deal with script's permissions (a bit uncomfortable on mobile devices), I'd suggest DuckDuckGo Browser or Privacy Browser. Firefox Klar (Focus) was a bit hungry for battery, last time I tested it.
