Hello jim-r and welcome to the forum.

All the other distros use other browsers, such as Firefox, Brave, Vivaldi etc, as default browser.

Kumander Linux is made to be particularly easy for Windows users to get started with Linux. And as we know, if you come from Windows, you are most likely using Google Chrome as your default browser.

After some time, they will hopefully switch to an open source browser, such as those mentioned above.

Regards,
Roy
