Most Linux distributions include Mozilla Firefox as their default browser, but we like Chromium. Chromium is the completely open-source version of Google Chrome, and it has almost every single feature you’ll find in Chrome, including syncing with your Google account.
You probably spend a lot of time in your web browser, so this choice really matters. Chromium is still more responsive due to its multi-process architecture, which runs each tab individually. That’s especially handy if you have quite a few web pages open—a web page that crashes won’t bring down your entire browser.
Firefox is good, too, and it’s certainly improved over the years. But Chromium still seems better. Google Chrome is basically the same as Chromium, but with some closed-source bits.
