I need to know, too!
That’s a tricky one; in my head I’ve been pronouncing it like “floor” with a “p” on the end, but then again with “oo” it could just as easily be “FLEW-erp”.

Phonetically - as a Japanese speaking person - how would this be pronounced?

This website indicates it is pronounced like “flope” (フロープ). 【Floorp】Firefoxベースのカスタマイズ性が高いブラウザ | ナポリタン寿司のPC日記

Probably something like “furoaapu”.

“How would this be pronounced?”
I love the last part! Fits perfectly reading through the comments:
Looks like Floorp in relation to Firefox is the same as Vivaldi in relation to Chrome
This is exactly what I tell people when I have to explain what a fleeewrp is
I did see it’s available on all but iOS
I kinda roll my tongue off the inside bottom gum line up to the roof of my mouth. That way it makes a nice, squishy sound. Kinda wet, too.
I’m testing Floorp and LibreWolf so far im liking LW more but i wish a version would come to the iPhone and iPad not a fan of FF on iOS LOL
I meant Firedragon, sorry.
