the post was in defense of Firefox 4, which got obsoleted in three months because it was a buggy piece of shit. Way to go guys!
Half true. It WAS a buggy piece of shit (mac version was for me, no problems with the windows version though), but it got EoL because they moved to a faster development cycle like Chrome uses. They don't want to do 4.11, 4.2, 4.3, etc and are just sticking to mainly larger updates. Firefox 5 will meet the same fate as 4 before too long. Firefox 6 is due in August and Firefox 5 will then be EoL.
Putting adblock on Chrome is like trying to block a gun with a cork. Chrome is a google browser, a huge chunk of google revenue comes from user sensitive ads. Expecting adblock to work properly on chrome, especially on google services like youtube, is fairly naive. They can and will fight against it. But as long as you don't mind google tracking your browsing habits (though apparently you can turn it of, assuming you took the time to configure the browser) and ads, Chrome is a very good browser.
Good point. Forgot about who owned what. I don't think that explains Justin.tv though.
Ive been using FF a while now and everytime they release a new version all my add ons dont work, its starting to piss me off. It seems fast enough, ive no complaints about that part though.
Well, that's mainly because of their faster updates. According to Firefox, the add-ons generally aren't broken, they just aren't working because developers put it to work with "4.x" or whatever. Apparently all they have to do is change the 4 to 5 and the problem will go away. I thought I read there's a better fix for developers around this problem, but I don't know what it is off the top of my head.
I actually switched to Chrome recently myself. I'm willing to bet that a fresh browser installation is the main reason it seems faster... no addons or (god forbid) malware.
It's been a fast adjustment, although the download implementation is garbage... no way around it either.
Chrome is faster on some of my slower PCs as well, but they are a fresh install besides ad-block being on them. YMMV. I dislike the download implementation as well. I still use Chrome here and there, but there are definitely a few things different that bug me. Really hope it gets quick find someday like Firefox has.
