I’ve been using Fennec as my browser, given it’s included in the f-droid repos, it removes binary blobs keeping itself libre/free.
However I was made aware of Mull:
available on a custom divestos f-droid repo. It’s said to use the same Fennec build scripts getting read of the FF for android binary blobs, and besides use some settings (not the same) from arkenfox, just like librewolf on the desktop…
If I look at the android browsers comparison provided by divestos:
Which is written by the same Mull creators and providers, then of course Mull shows up as a better option than F-Droid Fennec. But I’m concerned about how much scrutiny there is on Mull compared to Fennec, how much it’s audited by users in comparison. Fennec, by being on official F-Droid repos, undergoes throughout scrutiny I guess, which might not be the same for Mull. And I heard about Mull only recently, on some Librewolf discussions, whereas when looking for Firefox without binary blobs and on F-Droid, one quickly finds Fennec as the option… Is it safe then to use Mull, and is it really like librewolf for AOSP/Android? Does it plays nice on non divestos AOSP based phones like LineageOS for MicroG?
