It's a Multi-billion dollar entity of course now, being funded via the Pentagon (aka Tax Payers) for the foreseeable future.

Hence you will see MORE failures as we proceed towards a very scary future....

I wonder what parts will stay, and what will go. Will they use their own javascript engine, or the one from chromium. Will they have the same implementation of CSS as Chrome? Video playback caching and settings In any case, i really dont want to worry about another platform i need to develop and test against. People really don't realize that they all don't work the same. 98% tends to be unnoticeable... but that 2% tends to be on complicated critical parts that requires a decent bit of reading to figure out why things are happening that way.

Vista was a fine OS, at worst it was a beta version of 7 but still all in all mostly like Windows 7, really not much it couldn't do that Windows 7 could when they were running side by side throughout the prime life cycle of both those OS's.

90% of the complaints would fall in two camps, people that were experiencing slow lagged up machines because Vista was actually a lot more resource intensive than anything else at the time. Microsoft/OEM's caused that one by shipping every bottom of the barrel e-machines desktop with 512mb of ram as Vista upgrade ready and horrendously underrating the minimum required specs. Last was people being "annoyed" by the UAC pop-ups. This was actually a huge step forward at the time seeing as every other OS built for security has a tight UAC/permission model like that. The people that didn't like it were idiot Winduh's users still running their desktop in admin mode for everything like it's 1995, the same guys that likely still do and get owned when they download an exe/bat off a torrent.

Vista was a nightmare at launch, but functioned great after the file transfer issue was fixed. I think a lot of people are just traumatized because UAC came as a shock and was just too aggressive.

It's a bit scary though, because when this goes through it will be a two browser game only, Chrome vs Firefox and that's. I know there's actually tons more of high quality browsers but in all reality for 99% of people there will only be two. Should Firefox ever fall or turn evil after that then it's game over.
Not necessarily. There are other contenders in works like Brave.

I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.

Unfortunately Brave is built on Chromium and is therefore still contributing to the lack of browser engine diversity.

Agreed on both. By the end Vista was very very similar to what 7 was at launch.

IMO Vista was good, even on release. I even went to one of their Release event things at a movie theater where they explained all the features and everything... got me a free Ulti 64-bit version. I didnt have any issue with it needing more resources, but the thing that annoyed me to no end was trying to figure out where everything was again. Add remove programs... where is my connection settings. IMO, Win 8 was worse than Vista. Removing the start button, and i actually had to google, how to log off a VM of Win8 when remoted into and not just dissconnect (which leaves resources allocated).

At least with Vista the major changes they actually kept in the next version. When you look at Win8 to Win10, they removed a ton of the stuff they were pushing. Vista was a jump with stuff that needed to be added, while Win8 was just annoying. The worst part of Win8 was that in beta you could flip a reg setting and bring back the start menu... they eventually removed that around the end of the beta.
