There is a new application available for Sparkers: LibreWolf
What is LibreWolf?
LibreWolf is the community-maintained fork of Librefox: a privacy and security-focused browser. This project is an independent “fork” of Firefox, with the primary goals of privacy security and user freedom. It is the community run successor to LibreFox. LibreWolf is designed to minimize data collection and telemetry as much as possible. This is achieved through hundreds of privacy/security/performance settings and patches. Intrusive integrated addons including updater, crashreporter, and pocket are removed too.
LibreWolf is NOT associated with Mozilla or its products.
– Latest Firefox — LibreWolf is compiled directly from the latest build of Firefox Stable. You will have the the latest features, and security updates.
– Independent Build — LibreWolf uses a build independent of Firefox and has its own settings, profile folder and installation path. As a result, it can be installed alongside Firefox or any other browser.
– No phoning home — Embedded server links and other calling home functions are removed. In other words, minimal background connections by default.
– User settings updates
– Extensions firewall: limit internet access for extensions.
Installation (Sparky rolling/testing amd64 only):
sudo apt update
sudo apt install librewolf
The package is located in Sparky unstable repos so make sure you have enabled the repo before starting installation.
