Warning Warning:

In Whonix ™, for better anonymity it is recommended to use only Tor Browser for browsing the internet. Use of any browsers such as Chromium, Firefox, Opera and others is discouraged. Reasons for that are elaborated on the Tor Browser wiki page.

info Whonix ™ is The Everything Tor operating system (OS). All internet traffic is routed through the Tor anonymity network. No exceptions. Whonix is the "All Tor Operating System".

This of course also includes Chromium, Firefox, Opera and other browsers. Due to Whonix's Watertight Privacy, Whonix provides the strongest protection of your IP address.

The reason why browsers other than Tor Browser are discouraged is because hiding your identity is harder than just hiding your IP. This is elaborated on the Tor Browser wiki page.
