@xmaslightguy - Linux can interact with Windows using SAMBA, but it's clunky. Firefox is definitely the best browser in our opinion though, Sammi has been using it since version 1..!

Steer clear of IE at all costs  @-@

Yup, I've been using FF for the best part of fifteen years.  :poof:
As soon as I could I ditched IE back in 1994 for Netscape Navigator, and have only ever used IE when forced into doing so by a website not supporting alternatives.  >:(

Interesting. Maybe I'll look at SAMBA at some later date, just out of curiosity.
PaleMoon is pretty much my browser of choice these days (excluding the old Win98se computer ofcourse)

Not sure if its true or not, but I've heard the newer versions of FireFox are basically just a rebranded Chrome (Chrome(and its equivalents) is the one browser ) I avoid at all costs.)

For addons these 3/4 are 'required' NoScript+AdBlock+TabKiller+(and depending on browser CookieMonster), plus (I need to find a replacement for Video-DownloadHelper since it doesn't work much anymore)

I use Waterfox Classic Portable to browse LG, as I banned Pale Moon, since the developer banned NoScript, and he and its community, have a dictatorship nature.
For Youtube video downloader, I use ‏‏YouTube Downloader HD. It is free and open-source without malware.

For sites where I need a newer/better browser(YouTube & Discord for example) I'm using PaleMoon(portable) & have NoScript on it...but I did also manually 'install' NoScript & the other addons. (and I "turned-off" all checking/blocking of addons (both in PaleMoon & FireFox. Plus I disabled & blocked the built-in 'spyware' as well))
WaterFox is a decent choice for a browser though too, I have used that one before.

Gonna go check out YouTube Downloader HD now. Thanks for the suggestion
