While I don't disagree..

No offense, but, how do you expect a web browser like this to be funded? Are you planning on funding it?

No default search engines, completely free open source, work on the modern web (modern websites stick to specifically designing their sites for whatever is popular, which tends to be the ones with the most funding/affiliation)

It's like saying every modern world wide network (e.g. Internet) sucks. Which it does, we pay per use (monthly fees, data fees), there's bandwidth limits everywhere, there's advertisements everywhere, corporations everywhere

Every grocery store sucks. Full of affiliates and advertisements. And then we actually pay for everything. And we even have to check ourselves out, after 'lining up.' Wait, every store sucks. Every online store sucks.

Hell, the whole corporate world sucks.

Wait, that means the whole world sucks.

Okay, wait, I don't disagree, but..

Agree with most of the things except ad blocker. I don't think browsers should be blocking what people see because the devs don't like them.

Of course, I support adblocker 100% and have been using them. But I don't think it should neccesarily be up to the browsers to include it. If they include it, then what next? They include things that blocks sites they don't lile?

Chrome alread does this. To privent you from getting viruses.

I'd argue that a "passable" web browser needs to do the opposite: make sure it stays on top of security fixes itself, because you know 99% of users won't otherwise.

What the fuck?

Author enjoys adopting the 4chan aesthetic. Hard to say if he's just reactionary and likes appealing to that lot, or he's just a nazi as well.

But these proclivities have been well featured across his site and channel for a long time.
