Get woke go broke...and its definitely slower than it used to be. I switched to Edge Chrome and haven't looked back. I might as well keep all my telemetry/data collection in one box.
Them firing that director/president guy over his donations to the republican party was the signal for me to switch to chrome. Firefox was already running behind chrome in both features and stability, they bring a guy in to fix issues with firefox, then fire him over politics. That was my first expeerience with virtue signalling and told me mozilla was only going to continue to fall behind.Too political, too obsessed with pointless UI redesigns & feature removals and still stuck trying to be a Lowest Common Denominator cut-down Chrome clone (whilst most people who want Chrome, use Chrome). Meanwhile, the power users have all switched to Vivaldi that pretty much has become the new "old school" Firefox for those who want the ability to tweak absolutely everything.
Wouldnt you know it, they still dont have per tab threading, going on a decade after google introduced it. They did neuter the add on system though, so thats nice.....Oh, they introduced pocket onto your homepage and began integrating social media. Yay?
The failure of firefoxOS was shocking to me. You have an OS that is pretty much ready for primetime, and limit it to only your cheap *** hardware instead of making it available on popular phones ala AOSP ROMs? No drive to make their own nexus equivelant to promote the OS? Then you kill it instead of making it open source?What a surprise: An unstated major premise.
How many people buy an iPhone and go out and get another browser instead of Safari? Same for Android and Chrome.
What is Firefox's PC/Mac/Linux market share compared to 2018 or 2009 or whichever year? That will tell you the true extent of userbase loss.
So many screwups, so little time.
