I need to know, too! :joy:


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”.

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?”

“…badly.” :rofl:


“Japanese Firefox”



I love the last part! Fits perfectly :joy: reading through the comments:

This is exactly what I tell people when I have to explain what a fleeewrp is :smile_cat:


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. :wink:
