Posted this from Firefox. Not the regular one though, I use the Fedora version that has Wayland enabled. (On Manjaro)

Going back and forth with that and Opera

It keeps IT people employed.

If there's only one browser, like 80% of troubleshooting goes away. "Have you tried it in Chrome/Edge/Firefox? OK, give that a try and call back if it doesn't work."

Tried chrome, but I only have eight GB of ram and it was slow.

Opera...the browser that got bought by a Chinese Consortium.

No thanks.

I've had to switch to Firefox for this site as it now instantly crashes Chromium.

Firefox container tabs can keep Facebook and Google from spying on what you're doing in the tabs that are displaying websites they do not own.

Chrome can't do that.

It's an epic irony that people say they left Firefox because it was a resource hog.

Nothing eats RAM and battery life like Chrome.

Weak troll headline.

Team FireFox FTW.

Google will keep them afloat so the EU won't fine them billions

I gave them $20 about 15 years ago and got a t-shirt out of it.  🤨

That's good news, even though it's charity from Google at this point. Firefox is still my daily driver, in spite of losing the plot by chasing after Chrome and reducing extensibility and customization.

I'm concerned by Mozilla firing so many of their technical people, to include most if not all of the security team.  Their focus is on everything else the Mozilla Org does, and not really the browser at this point.  Iron law of bureaucracy has been in full effect for them since more than a decade ago.

There's really not a lot of choice out there for browsers at the minute, and it's really gonna suck if they manage to run the browser into the ground over the next few years because they made the wrong choices (again) about what to support and what to cut.
