137 jackflapb Let us not forget- Firefox is an independent non-profit not controlled by a single large corporate with their own vested interests. They campaign for and enforce open web standards and don't abuse their market dominance (*cough* Google Amp *cough*). If it weren't for Firefox, we'd probably all still be stuck with IE6 and ActiveX.
50 d0ndada I switched a couple months back and I've been very happy with Firefox. I was having issues with Chrome hogging resources especially when watching streaming video. I haven't had any of those issues so far with Firefox.
33 poochyenarulez > Chrome made Firefox irrelevant Seriously?
21 Ryokoo I actually much prefer the newer versions of firefox over chrome. I've had issues with chrome since its inception, in recent years firefox just had too many issues with performance. but this latest update seems to have gotten it right.
10 QuentinMagician If Firefox updates automatically on my Linux box, I still can’t watch Netflix on it.
4 cicada-man Firefox throughout the years: 2006-2008: Awesome. 2009-2013: Awful. 2014-2017: better 2018: the comeback?
14 winterblink I used to use Firefox years ago but switched to Chrome because I found that Firefox was continually in a bloat-refine-bloat-refine cycle. I get that Chrome uses more ram overall, but that's a tradeoff I can live with personally. I DO love that there's competition out there for Chrome, especially with the newest revision of Firefox. Competition is a good thing -- as long as it doesn't lead to useless feature bloat. Just be a good browser, good at browsing the internet and not getting in my way of it.
4 ErrorBorn I personally like the WebKit based browsers out there. I feel like their interpretation is a little more reliable and accurate to the designers intentions. As far as new browsers go, I’m most excited for [Brave]( since it’s led by the inventor of Javascript and co-founder of Mozilla. It legitimately seems like a browser with a modern-day mentality.
5 WiseHalmon You can install ublock on firefox mobile. Winner.
3 ragingatwork *”when Chrome debuted in 2008, it quickly become the de-facto web browser of choice”* My work switched to chrome as its recommended browser last year...
3 hydroptix Until I can create different profiles with different extensions/cookies/saved logins *easily use them concurrently* I'm sticking with Chrome.
7 toolz0 Chrome captures your browsing habits so that Google can market to you. Firefox does not. That's why I have never used Chrome.
4 que_pedo_wey During this new browser war, I never left my Mozilla Seamonkey (which is basically Firefox for nerds and curmudgeons)... But if they say "If, for whatever reason, you don't like the new look, Firefox Quantum lets you customize it to suit your preferences.", then I would try it... except they changed the theme policy in a restrictive manner, so you can't really change the look like you used to. I'll check it out anyway, and still prefer it to Chrome.
6 drippingupside Switched recently to Firefox and its great. Im done supporting shitty companies that spy on you.
4 dummyreader On Windows I still run into laggy sites and hangs/crashes with Firefox. These things never happen on Chrome. On mobile it's a joke. Almost every browser I've used is faster than Firefox. I haven't used any Linux based desktop distros in a while but Firefox was preferable to Chrome. Chrome would crash while Firefox was rock solid.
2 PastTense1 The new Firefox is buggy for me: it hangs for a few seconds and then gives a beep. I tried 3 or 4 suggested fixes but none worked. Thus I have gone back to Chrome--which doesn't have this problem.
2 kernco The main thing keeping me in Chrome is the autofill/saved passwords feature, especially that it's integrated into Android so I can log into apps or sites on my phone without remembering my password if I've logged into them on my desktop. If Firefox allows these to be imported, and also provides an autofill service on Android (something it allows as of 8.0), then I'd be willing to switch. Oh also being able to drag to resize text boxes is great. Does Firefox do that now?
