    Since when do you have to love a tool to use it?

    1. 6

      It’s not a requirement, but it’s nice. I used to love Firefox back in the early Phoenix days. These days, I dread updates to any browser because I know it will come with advertising-related changes I don’t want and/or removal of features that I do.

      Did anyone else read this and feel like it was complaining that a bigco software did not have sufficient culty behavior around it?

        Bad headline. I love Firefox even less, but I still try to use it more out of belief.

        There is no perfect browser (for me). They’re both fine in what they do.

          Google Chrome is the new Internet Explorer 6.02. I hate supporting it, but there is no end in sight in the medium term. I went from 11th grade through becoming a Senior Dev before IE 6.02 dropped off the support matrix for every client.

            Even though the web browser (Firefox included) is but the newest pillar in our temple of social and economic control, I think the RAM criticisms are unfair. Never really had a problem with Chrome RAM consumption until the spectre/meltdown patches hit, which aren’t really Google’s fault.

            If only Intel had screwed the pooch harder, this pillar may have been successfully disrupted.
