I love Firefox and the addons I use with it. Can't remember last time I had an issue. Mozbackup is awesome too.

hio77: move to chrome, i did and never have looked back.

dont think i can recall a single crash since moving.


inb4 comments on chrome privacy.


ROFL. What a statement. I use Chrome as my default browser and it does crash. As per screenshot on page 1, if you haven't seen one.



mikenzb: I used to use Firefox alot back in the days, then I found out about Chrome..... I never looked back ever since then.

Geektastic: Safari works just fine for me.

Chrome.

Step 1: Use Safari or internet explorer to download Chrome
Step 2: Install Chrome
Step 3: Make Chrome default.

Or...don't (as it does not really make much difference...) and you won't contribute to the evil that is Google -  although you, for one, may welcome our new Google overlords.

I really like Firefox.  I use it as my default browser.  It is typically very stable, but a recent update seems to have made it chug like hell for the last couple of weeks.  I middle click on a link and 10 seconds later, it decides to open the tab.  It's happening across all my devices too.  Haven't found a fix. :(





Sometimes what you don't get is a blessing in disguise!

Don't sweat it, its just an attempt to make them seem green and caring, rest assured, in reality they are as intent as ever on continuing to rob you and the other devouts, sightless :)

We share a computer (wife, son and me) which by default logs in to a google account (once "mine"), linked to an email account we share, default browser Chrome.

Based on what's presented to me by Google Ads, they have me down as a size 12 middle-aged cross-dressing banjo playing auto mechanic with an unhealthy interest in teenage girls.
I'd hate to meet myself.

And we dare to call them evil.

Chrome dev tools still don't quite match Firebug though, at least IMO. Otherwise yeah, chrome is awesome, I use it as my day to day browser (even for light client side debugging\dev) but for the heavy lifting I still find myself returning to Firebug.

Maybe I just need to spend more time with chrome dev tools ;-) I've spent so long in firebug I know exactly where every little thing is. With chrome dev tools I sometimes find I'm scratching my head trying to figure out where to find something.
