I wrote earlier about how Chrome was winning me over. Well, after a brief fling, I’m back to Firefox and I now find it not so bad.
The advantages of Chrome just weren’t enough to make me move completely. I tried for a few days at work and at home but in the end I’m back to Firefox.
Why? Well, I’m a techie, I have a lot of firefox addons and Chrome, while it has lots, doesn’t have exactly the ones I find I really want to have with me.
Also, some of the usability differences between Firefox and Chrome irked me. And there’s no advanced configuration tool (like Firefox’s about:config) to deal with those issues.
So, I’m back to Firefox. I’ve recently been hacking away in about:config again to make my experience better, so here’s what I’ve been looking at:
- Make Firefox Go Vroom! – a few configs to conserve memory and make things faster
- Nglayout.initialpaint.delay – render all-at-once vs render as-you-go
Send me some feedback on how you’re making Firefox better!
