It's said that the Google browsers are more secure, than the Mozilla and
Mozilla based browsers and Firefox isn't really GNU.

If you want a GNU browser based on Firefox consider to use GNU IceCat,

I dislike Google browsers, but I will test Iridium.

However, my Qupzilla's HTML5 does work, e.g. YouTube videos aren't an
