firefox sucks
« on: July 07, 2011, 07:03:55 PM »
i can safely say i will never use that shitty browser again. now that both chrome and opera have adblock theres no reason to even keep it on my system anymore.

As soon as I figure out how to make images my wallpaper without it, it'll be gone in a flash.

Right click your background: Properties -> Desktop
or
Start Menu -> Parameters -> Configuration Panel -> Display -> Properties -> Desktop


and here I am with a wallpaper that's actually an FLV movie taken from Youtube playing in the background looped with some code added to mute it if I'm tired of the sound...

 I gave chrome a try a few days ago and will probably make the switch after I figure a few things out with it, like turning off it's version of the 'awesome bar'. If someone wants to see the bowser/captain falcon yaoi fanfic I was reading they need to work for it. It's efficiency matters on my older pc, most notably streaming things. Firefox is sometimes choppy until a video buffers 100% while chrome is smooth from the start.

That's because Chrome makes each tab a seperate process while Firefox makes everything go at once.

Opera's just plain fast. Don't know what it does though.

And I'm staying on Chrome for now. I have all my bookmarks and stuff set just the way I like.

I use Safari with Adblock on my Mac.  Both it and Chrome use Webkit for its rendering engine, which is a good part of the reason why they both pass the Acid3 test with flying colors.

If your browser doesn't score 100, it doesn't meet web standards and sucks ass.
