This intends to be a central directional for Browsers available to Puppy Linux community.This thread only shows those forum threads which dedicate themselves to a specific browser to minimize/avoid user confusion.

Portable Browsers - for installation outside of normal root system areas to minimize running filesystem's storage needs

Browser PETs/SFSs packages for PUPPY installation(s)
Notes for novice users:
PETs are for permanent filesystem installations, integrated into the overall system's management structure while SFSs, though existing in the filesystem, intend to be only become operational when loaded via some built-in system's means.

How to - Providing acquiring browsers and simple installation steps
Here to help

New users should know that, as of today, the above list of browsers and their sources is anything but comprehensive.

Unless it is fully updated soon and thereafter on a regular basis - this thread will be of severely limited assistance to many readers.

This helpful section of the Forum is already dedicated to "Browsers and Internet" - and may still be browsed for wider info.

A script provided by @Rufwoof to download, install, and run a current Firefox browser

No (very little) credit to me for that script gcmartin. Just someone else's script that I have no reference/link to that was modified a little by me to just run the fresh download rather than create a sfs of the download.

Another example (or choice) is a modified version of Shinobar's portable firefox

https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B4MbXu8cvE_WRVE4Y0FlZUgzcTg&usp=sharing

File : firefox-portable-ram-0.5.tar.gz

(make sure its the one with ram in the filename as the other is just a exact copy of shinobar's original version).

Which is a copy of Shinobar's portable firefox http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=91945 (a older version - but still works fine for me), just with a few lines of code commented out in the firefox-portable script (first few lines in the buildguest() function) so that it can also be installed into ram (Shinobar's version prohibits installation to ram and insists on being under /mnt/home).

i.e. download that tarball. Then in a ram booted puppy copy that to /root (or wherever), extract, and navigate to the firefox portable ram sub directory then into firefox portable sub directory, click the firefox portable app and it will download the latest firefox (offering choice of language).

If you run a ram (cold/hard) booted puppy from CD/read-only that has the puppy sfs installed into initrd.gz then the HDD's aren't even touched. If there's a method to grab the latest browser direct from the provider such as above, then you're booting a pretty secure system. Provided you then go to no other web sites either before or after other than your banks web site then that's pretty secure (pristine op system and browser, no HDD's mounted all running in cleanly booted ram). Still not 100% secure as firmware or network link could have been breached, and there's always the risk of a rootkit in either the 'pristine' op system or browser - but reasonably safe (better than using a system/browser that's been exposed to all sorts of web sites/usage).

Quote:
If Flash is not installed or if it is disabled, the HTML5 player is automatically used on the site. This implementation is limited to select video resolutions only. You may notice that the highest resolution available is 720p when you use the HTML Flash player on YouTube in Firefox 36.

This changes when you set the parameter media.mediasource.enabled to true.

Type about:config in the address bar and hit enter.
Confirm you will be careful if the prompt appears.
Search for media.mediasource.enabled.
Double-click the entry to set it to true.

Once done, higher resolutions become available on YouTube.
