Different people have different use for the internet. For my use, Internet Explorer has been a good browser on Windows and Firefox has been a good browser on various Linux distributions that I've used in the past.

I've used Firefox on Linux for over a decade now. I don't care about being cross-platform as I only use Windows under duress. Even then, I've never been unhappy with Firefox on Windows either. That posting above seems a bit whiny to me. The entire judgement about Firefox's performance consists of a posting from one "Google+ homie" about his or her problems.

I do occasionally see complaints from people who want to have twenty or more simultaneous open tabs. This seems like a "corner" problem that affects very few ordinary users who probably use at most only half-a-dozen tabs. Many people I encounter don't even know tabs exist.

I'm using Firefox on Linux (Fedora 18) with more than 60 open tabs (thanks to Tree Style Tab) and at work I'm also using Firefox (Windows 7) where from time to time I have also more than 50 tabs open and I don't remember the last time I have had a problem with it. And I can say more or less the same for Chrome even if I am using it less than Firefox.

I've been Firefoxing for years with lots of extensions ... but the behavior is feeling listless and bloated lately (even with uninstalling, burning all evidence, and re-installing) ... for my "amusement" I'm seeing how closely I can match functionality with Chrome and extensions.

Also, I'm losing my iGoogle portal page in November (carefully tailored for newsfeeds, stocks, weather, etc and trying different ways to duplicate the convenience of one homepage dashboard. I've had several recommendations but haven't really spent a lot of energy on them yet.

I wouldn't use Chrome while playing games simultaneously. Instead, for the netbook I'm using (Atom processor, 2gb of memory, shared Intel graphics) while on the go I have to take Opera, as I heard that it has a very low memory footprint compared to Firefox and Chrome.

Hi, we seem alike.
In any way, it is quite interesting to see such a thread get such a long discussion.

I use Chrome for my desktop (Windows), mainly for the spell checker and Boat browser for my Android phone mainly because it can play flash and has handy sidebar use.

One reason apparently to stick with Firefox partially. Chrome plugins are not allowed to capture Youtube streams (Google Playstore policy). My Firefox "video downloadhelper" is wondrous for that capability - which lets me manage my monthly transfer totals, thanks).

As it might be said, "fuck that".

I should've mentioned about Youtube Options (YTO, https://spoi.com/software/yto/) installed in Chrome (on my main rig), which allows me to download any size/type video from YT. Of course if that fails, Firefox and a trio of plugins also do the work.

Ah, this is brilliant - thanks! Soooo many knobs and buttons!

Yeah, they removed a cr**load of features since they ditched Presto and turned to Chromium/Blink, most likely because they needed to rebuild all these parts from the ground up in order to make them compatible with the new engine. So either Opera ASA turned the removed stuff into standalone programs (Opera Mail, for one), they revamped it (Turbo --> Off-Road) or they completely dumped it. They're slowly but surely putting some features back in, but only after tailoring it for Blink/Chromium, if possible...and if it is present on their development roadmap.

End result? Opera is now a bloated, over-minimalistic browser with little of its erstwhile potential for extensive UI/settings customization.


EDIT: Opera Turbo is now called "Off-Road mode".

I still remember the day when I saw Opera 15. Customization was the reason I went with Opera to begin with and stuck with it for so long, even through the abyssmal 12.x releases. The built-in mail client was just gravy. I was even originally for the switch to WebKit because I thought it would let Opera shift the Presto deveopers over to other teams so they could tweak the UI and customization capabilities, and maybe even do something about the horrible memory bloat that kept bogging the 12.x series down. The last thing I wanted was another Chrome clone.
