    Opera died when it switched to Chromium's engine as far as I'm concerned. The Qihoo acquisition was just another nail in the coffin And while their usage is not technically correct, nowadays "VPN" is just a buzzword for anything that hides your real IP and encrypts traffic.

    Speaking of closed source, the entire code for Opera 12.15, a version that's basically an OpenSSL update away from 12.18, was leaked early this year. 4chan was all over this, to the point of porting the browser to some queer platforms like ARM/Raspberry Pi. Sadly there seems to be little interest in writing patches or any kind of updates.

    Concerning FF, on a 2007 32 bits PC with 3gb RAM and a poor CPU, I am able to use FF with 78 addons and approx. 50 tabs with no issues. But I restart the browser at least once per day (sometimes twice!). In a privacy point of view, it is not recommended anyway to engage in everlasting browsing sessions. So having to restart my browser one or two times per day is not a bug, it's a privacy feature that some other browsers are cruelly missing.....
    Hah! This is not a bother as long as you're dealing with cookies, ETags, TLS session tickets and such accordingly. The real advantage from having to reboot Firefox once a day would be regaining all the RAM it leaks. This has been a fact for over a decade, and the main reason I can't use it as an everyday browser Note I haven't tried the Quantum beta yet.

    I just have performed some tests with my current (customized) FF. On ip-check.info, when restarting, I get a different local storage ID. When testing on Cleaning Software Test site, after restarting only the IndexedDB storage is remaining, the 2 others (cookie and LocalStorage) are gone (although I don't lose my connection, eg on SBI, which is for the moment a little mystery I want to investigate further). I have to specify that in addition to my 78 addons, I completly disable my browser's disk cache.

    Well, you probably shouldn't have Local Storage and IndexedDB enabled at all Very few sites really need it.

    Any chances of a "&s=xxxxxxxxxxxxxx" parameter present in the pages from this forum you're visiting? That's a session ID and lets us authenticate you even if cookies are deleted or disabled (on POST requests, it gets passed as part of the postdata).

    I used having IndexedDB disabled. But on a site I'm often visiting this prevented me to see the comments at the bottom of the articles. I then used an addon (a button) to toggle indexedDB on demand. And anyway all these storage are automatically cleared by Ccleaner (+Enhanced) each times I close my browse. But now, addons like uBlock0 (and uMatrix) are using IndexedDB to store data, at least for FF 56 and more. I have to learn to handle that.

    Maybe... How do I check that ??

    Setting image.animation_mode to none in about:config downloads the GIFs, but doesn't animate them. Alternatives are using SimpleBlock, uBlock or a content filter addon of your choice to block *.gif (which kills any image in that format, animated or not, legitimate or not), or seeing if the site in question doesn't have a setting to disable avatars.

    I know, but Quantum only became relevant less than a year ago, and you said you'd been looking for a long time
