For one, not everyone is fortunate enough to only work with Macs.

Any suggestions on a browser that Imight use as an alternative to Safari? Not really interested in the megalith Google getting into my life

I just tried to download Opera onto the ipad - a but apparently Safari cannot download it

Thank you for your help
If you like Chrome, but don't like Google, you could give Chromium a try. It's what Chrome (and to a point Safari) are built upon.

I've been using Safari as my principle browser since returning to Macs about seven years ago. Itís an almost-never-fail app that does what I expect it do do. However, sometimes, especially when filling forms, Safari fails and I turn to Firefox. With the two Iím never stuck. I keep both up to date as I do with all my apps.

I use Firefox primarily, Chrome occasionally and keep Brave running for when websites keep churning away on ad content instead of displaying.

Newest iteration of Firefox has a great feature... you can choose to prevent websites from launching sound the moment they load. Very serene browsing experience now!

Yep, I do the same, but use Safari 99% of the time.

I was able to solve this issue using Safari many years ago. My sound is turned off at all times. I only turn it on if I want to listen to something and when finished, off it goes!
