Firefox in trouble

post #1 of 9

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/news/8941445/Is-Firefox-in-trouble.html

So I've just read this.. I hope this doesn't mean that there will be less updates Firefox is my favoured browser by far. Ive known people to move to chrome for speed but with the latest Firefox I can tell no difference.

So if you have moved to chrome, MOVE BACK! Firefox deserves the more users, google just want money and everyone to use their stuff and kill competition.

Just my thought anyway smile.gif

meh. IE > Chrome > FF for me personally anyway, so no big loss for me. Really, from what I hear developing an app that works across all three platforms is a real pain, largely because of IE's standards. But as an end-user, from a performance perspective, I don't see a difference. I like IE9's layout, I think it's quite the secure browser, and until it's severly broken or doesn't work I'll continue to use it. Still use Chrome and FF on a daily basis as a reference point so I still have some user experience when comparing them, but I'll keep IE9 thanks smile.gif

Arguments about browser performance are now invalid. You won't notice a difference, and if you do it has to be a radical one, one which Firefox and Chrome don't have, therefore browser choice is mostly user opinion. There is no 'best browser'.

Not trying to flame, but are you serious? Maybe the newer versions of IE are tolerable, but I personally hate having to make hacked up css files just to make a website follow IE's proprietary standards. We actually charge clients using IE a bit extra because it is a pain to develop for IE and all other browsers that are actually standards compliant.

FF and Chrome, for me, are interchangable. I switched to chrome just because I was getting annoyed by a new version of FF coming out every week practically.

But still, browsers all come down to personal choice. Looking at that graph though, IE is losing users significantly faster than FF.

Wait, IE is an internet browser? Since when? That is news to me.

for me, i'm serious. I don't have to worry about coding or any web app development, so the back-end argument doesn't mean much to me personally. I've heard horror stories about all three tbh, though usually the stories aren't complaining about a particular browser but about trying to develop something that is compatible with all three of them. I've been using IE for as long as I can remember, and use FF and Chrome on a semi-regular basis as a reference point. To me, the 64-bit IE9 browser is awesome, I wouldn't trade using it for anything. I think however, in today's age for end-users, browsers really do come down to personal preference, and not so much performance difference. I realize there are sites optimized for IE or FF or Chrome, but the performance variables (in relation to your hardware) seem to be minimal at best. If/when Microsoft makes a crappy browser, I'll switch over to Chrome or FF, but I'm quite content with IE myself. I realize the immaturity of my statement and that it will likely start a flame ware, editing it now...
