It'd be nice to have a bit more competition browser-wise I must admit, just (sjw) Firefox + Chrome (and variants of - which Edge seems to slot into IIRC)

Tried Vivaldi a while back, seemed to be redirecting me searches (vivaldi rocks or somesuch), so I dropped that toot sweet.

Another steaming chromium turd whose only selling point is a UI designed by middle-manager morons in Powerpoint, no thanks.

test our shit, write software for us, give us all your data so we can sell it, and then also pay us on top of that for all the great services(bloatware,adware,spyware) we provide... ok ok, you can get it for free,
if you have a lot of unindoctrinated students who do not yet know about our wonderful ecosystem.

So, Microsoft graciously is offering the developer community the privilege to port to Linux a fork of a browser that was done by a completely different organization than Microsoft, a fork that appears to have very surface-level alterations from the originating product as well. What generosity. Will they take this hard volunteer developer work and release this browser as a proprietary binary ala Visual Studio Code and pretend it's "open source"?

Microsoft definitely leads the pack in marketing spin.
