I have been using tahr for years. best OS ever for my needs. Been using 64 bit for at least a year, probably more. My question is, what browser is best ? Pale Moon rocks but no longer plays well with my Yahoo mail. I like Firefox but but I get no sound. What is a good browser that does everything for my 64 bit Tahrpup ?
Much thanks to the guys that make all this possible.

Fred has made a Firefox portable with the sound fix built in. Portable in the since that you can put it in /mnt/home and it doesn't fill up your save file or you can put it in /opt if you want it in your save file.

@ J_D_:-

I know they're not to everybody's liking, but there's also my Google Chrome and/or SRWare Iron browser packages (which I've been building for a while).

If you're interested, you can find Chrome here:-

.....and Iron here:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=992533#992533

Chrome auto-updates Pepperflash automatically. Iron doesn't, but unlike peebee, who re-packs Chromium every time Pepperflash is updated, I provide an auto-updater package, built on the work by our Russian colleague SFS. You can find that here:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=976126#976126

Just make sure you grab the correct one, so the paths are right.....Iron expects to find Pepperflash in the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins directory, alongside standard Flashplayer. Currently, this is a separate .pet, but I'm considering building it in to the Iron package in future; Adobe don't always time their updates to coincide with the browsers!

I build these in Tahr64, so I know they definitely work with it. Your choice, of course.

Thanks for the quick replies. I will give these options a try when I get time. I do not even hate switching between pale moon and FF but it would be nice to not need to.

I found the Firefox download. Do I need to create a package or just unzip and click on it to install ? Sorry to be stupid but quickpet has me spoiled.

@J_D_:-

If that's Fred's portable-Firefox-Quantum you're talking about, simply extract the package into /opt (you should end up with a 'firefox64' directory in /opt.)

The very first time you run it, navigate to the /opt/firefox64 directory, and start it by clicking on the 'ff' script; this makes sure your profile, etc., is all set up inside that directory.....keeps it 'portable', y'see.

After the first run, if you install the attached MenuEntry .pet, you can start it from the Menu, or drag the .desktop entry to the desktop and start it from there.
