waterfox features ecosia, not bing, rofl. aka ur fakenews

Just installed it, it defaults to bing... ecosia is one of the 'search-engine' options but not the default.

and waterfox remembers history by default

You're right here, but I'm not sure how that's a good thing regarding privacy (from the settings page):

Waterfox will remember your browsing, download, form and search history, and keep cookies from websites you visit.

I misread the waterfox page and they were only boasting about their 'privacy' tab.

and the palemoon/basilisk dev has been known to block some plugins over false/stupid reasons

Not supporting is something different from blocking and for palemoon speaking it doesn't follow Mozilla's line of code for a long time so it's a valid reason to not support their plugin standards.

Pretty sure the Tor-browser out ranks them, but these are nice firefox replacements.

Palemoon is the one I go with when a page is too much of a hassle to access with blockers, it's besides your point also a tat faster than Firefox in my experience.

Oh wow, didn't even know this report existed. Thanks for the link!

Sense8 (a play on the word sensate /ˈsɛnseɪt/) is an American science fiction drama web television series created by Lana and Lilly Wachowski [the Matrix] and J. Michael Straczynski [Babylon 5] for Netflix. by Mnemonic in ScienceFiction

Currently watched episode 8 of season 1 and it's very good story telling, cinematography is great (Better even than Legion) and the action is Matrix like only more realistic and very brutal.

The story is about 8 people who get 'mentally' linked, how and why is the main story, but all 8 character have their own plot all over the world. Their indivual plotlines are not so much sci-fi (apart from the link) but about extreme social situations going on today. Kenya, India, Korea, Iceland, England, Mexico, Germany and USA are all interwoven.

I was shocked to only have found out about this series about 2 weeks ago, it's really really good, did not expect this from a Netflix production but looking at the creators and if you know their previous works you'll know it's gotta be good.

Warning: It's an adult series.
