The Ubuntu browser, the replacement for Mozilla Firefox?

The last few days he's been talking a lot about the future of Firefox and about a browser change in our Ubuntu distribution. It is due to the change in policies of Mozilla Firefox that you are announcing, but there is a browser that is going through unnoticed by many, a future solution that some mention and that has the same power as Mozilla Firefox equal or, rather, that it will have in the recent future the same power as Mozilla Firefox.

We are referring to Ubuntu browser. This browser has evolved a lot since we first saw it with that address bar; In recent months Ubuntu has been updating its browser to make it as interesting as the lighter alternatives, however, it must be recognized that it still has a long way to go to catch up with the great Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.

The truth is that the only thing this crisis is doing is giving more expectation to alternatives unknown to many but just as interesting and powerful for some as Mozilla Firefox. Not long ago in this post we included you a compilation of the best web browsers that exist for computers with few resources.

There are also more powerful alternatives but that ultimately is based on Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. It seems that the Ubuntu browser is really starting to stand out and its development has been helped thanks to the development of Ubuntu Touch, an operating system that tries to take the best of the web world. This has allowed the Ubuntu browser to have, among other things, the possibility of offering the developer and the user responsive mode for your projects.

Many claim that this is the first step to Mark Shuttleworth's famous convergenceHowever, this feature of the Ubuntu browser is nothing more than a feature that every browser should have, although it is beneficial to use on different devices. At the moment we do not know of any unexpected changes in Ubuntu Wily Werewolf, however it is expected that this problem will be solved for the future Ubuntu 16.04.

Even so, Mozilla Firefox lovers are not in the doldrums, since Mozilla Firefox will remain in the official Ubuntu repositories although there is a high probability that the next version will not appear as the default browser. Hopefully users continue to have the same quality as with previous Ubuntu versions, either by using the Ubuntu browser or by using another browser, that is, a competent and powerful browser that is by default in our distribution without having To do any subsequent installation or add any extra repository, is something that some developers do not seem to understand.

    First, with so much publicity that it is hard to close your cell phone, you don't want to enter your notes.
    And with regard to the note itself, I would say that it is a bad decision to take Firefox as the default browser, people who come from Windows for example when seeing the Firefox or Chrome icons do not feel so lost.

      Canonical tries to go its own way… I don't think that's wrong. I'm with you on the advertising thing. Let's see if they make a mobile friendly site!
