@brli:matrix.orgBrLinope, I totally understand forks want a more independent app dir, the main issue is not about that13:53:09
@brli:matrix.orgBrLiit's that why the mozilla codebase decides to initially generate two layers of folder, while it decides the fork/unofficial one needs only one.13:54:05

Usually when I recommend software people try it for a day or two then some very small thing causes them to go back
That's all it usually takes one small feature or problem then boom back to the other browser. I have to switch browsers because sony logins don't work on librewolf for some reason & I can't figure out why

My normie friend just asked me which browser to use because he's already sick of all of the browsers adding AI stuff he doesn't want. I'll have him try librewolf but I fear having to tell him to disable enhanced tracking protection on a site-by-site basis for the small minority of sites is going to be too much to ask
Honestly, I just recommend Firefox to normal people. They don't care about telemetry, and in 90% of cases where Librewolf will require some level of techinal knowledge (which is actually a lot more than you think) Firefox will just work without issue.

The question you should ask yourself is, why don't you want to use it for both?
Container tabs are a thing (you can right click on the new tab button) and you can also use seperate profiles.
The only reason you would need a completely seperate browers is if you have a higher threat model and you really need to avoid being tracked across websites.

Isn't Firefox planning on adding AI bloat as well? Is there a Firefox minus as much bloat as possible but without the extra focus on stopping privacy/webtracking? What about nightly?

Honestly a sortof LibreWolf-simple sounds like a really good idea.
What if it was an opt-out feature on initial setup? Like there's a page that says "Do you want additional tracking protection?" or something...
23:24:34
@arcushing:matrix.orgLinux in a BitThen I'd feel comfortable recommending LibreWolf to average people.23:24:54
@user-9273648194:matrix.orgHecerManI made my friend use librewolf, but he installed chrome behind my back!!23:26:30
@user-9273648194:matrix.orgHecerManIt was too complicated23:26:40
