Not all webbrowsers are usable on a phone without hardware keyboard, here's an overview of browsers that are packaged in Alpine Linux and thus can be used with postmarketOS

firefox not packaged not packaged  ? gecko Alpine Linux hasn't packaged non-x86_64 versions yet.
chromium works  ?  ? blink
midori works works works webkit webkit2gtk
qutebrowser dependency error dependency error  ? blink qtwebengine keyboard controlled browser
falkon runs, but takes forever  ?  ? blink qtwebengine
epiphany works works  ? webkit webkit2gtk

the ARMv7 column has been updated on 2019-07-15 with the Nokia N900 as test device. Falkon might work on devices with more memory.
