Librem 14 browser opinions?

So I’m eagerly awaiting my Librem 14, in hopefully the next 3/4 weeks(ish) and my understanding is that it comes with a browser called Pure Browser, a fork of firefox? Thoughts on this? Are there better more secure/private options? I imagine I can tweak settings, but curious if those using PureOS already can comment, good or bad, I’d appreciate it! Thanks in advance.

The default browser in PureOS is Gnome Web.

Ok thanks, I was going by a YouTube video review of PureOS from the summer.

This article explains why Purism switched from Firefox to GNOME Web (Epiphany).


on PureOS-9-Amber(Stable) the default-installed-web-browser is still FireFox ESR

last version is 78.4.1esr (64-bit) upgraded fairly recently …

ungoogled-chromium is a possibility. I am not competent to say whether it succeeds in being secure and private, but I have not seen any evidence that it fails.

tor browser is based on firefox and has a good reputation for
browsing and protects against disclosing your IP address but should not be used for high bandwidth applications like downloading.
