I Think It’s Time To Ditch Firefox and Move To Google Chrome
I think the last straw has been drawn and I’m no longer going to use Firefox as my default web browser any more. The rapid release cycle decision only played a small part in my decision, the main reason is the fight to remove versioning numbers from the browser about box, seriously?
Instead of talking about things of substance, there is a current debate whether or not to make Firefox a versionless web browser and just show if you’re using the latest version or not in the about dialogue instead of the version number, the version number will still be available but not shown in the about dialog any more.
Firefox although better than it was a couple of years ago still has major memory leak issues not to mention out-dating and breaking extensions with every single release they put out. Instead of discussing these issues, they’d rather squabble over removing a version number from the about dialogue like it’s a big deal. It’s not hurting anyone having it there, so focus on things that matter.
Having said that, I don’t care any more. I’m now going to use Chrome as my daily browser and only use Firefox for testing. Goodbye Firefox, you had so much potential but you’ve blown it by being too overzealous and focusing on things that don’t matter.
