If you liked Opera, before they changed it to Chrome in all but name...



https://www.otter-browser.org

It's still quite new, but it has the right feel, even though there's no option to have the tabs at the bottom...



...yet.

Edit: Ha! There IS a way! (Not an obvious one, though).

I like when you share such things with us, Katzy, especially with the actual link.

One of my fears is, that I might download a program that has malware added to it, from a bogus site with a believably similar name, found by a search engine. You, I trust.

A report on the site mentions 5 known bugs. Is it ready for someone like me to use?

I used Opera, not Firefox, for several years. Then, the Opera on one of my computers somehow got infected (I think), doing things and opening windows against my wishes. I feared that I might delete something I needed (shared dll s, for example) if I tinkered, trying to fix the problem, and jumping to Firefox seemed a quick work-around.

I'd be happy to go with Otter. Or, perhaps, the Pale Moon browser you've mentioned.greengrin
