When I go to https://www.whatismybrowser.com/
appears:
YOUR WEB BROWSER IS: Firefox 90 on Linux
That information can be altered in many browsers, including Firefox and Palemoon, so that the info you choose is displayed.

Ask duckduckgo, there are instructions to get your Firefox to be reported as an IE or Chrome browser.
Cheers!

Hi Rava,
I also noticed:
Add-ons from the Chrome Web Store cannot be installed in the Elsa Browser!

Could be another hint that its not really a heavily altered Chrome.

Anyhow…

Elza Browser
Private, fast and minimal web browser based on electron
I would call no electron based browser a minimal web browser. Electron is the opposite of minimal.
When it is done without any such stuff like Electron and natively supported as native binary for the OS you use, then it could indeed be a minimal browser.

Just my 2 cents, not a fan of Electron nonsense.
Cheers!

yes, it's only minimal to look at.. neither chromium rendering engine or node.js is remotely minimal. :D

What is for you a true minimal browser with full JavaScript support?
Sadly, JC is needed for many webpages.
netsurf is a nice program, but its JC capabilities are not even close to complete… so its only useful for some web sites.
