LXer: Why Firefox? Because not everybody is a web designer, silly

Published at LXer:

Do we really want Chrome hegemony?Open Source Insider Write, as I have, about Firefox and you receive the usual slew of critics who demand to know why Firefox matters? Who cares if Firefox continues to exist? This is often accompanied by "Chrome is better! Chrome is all we need!"

IMO, I'd LOVE to see Firefox become usable again. As far as I'm concerned, right now it's not (it's nearly usable again with v52). It's simply too slow, too sluggish, takes too long to load pages, hangs for too long when using more than 1 tab. But sadly, with the current state of Firefox, the performance is so terrible (and this is on an 8 core 16 GB ram pc that has an SSD as it's only drive), that I absolutely cannot bring myself to use it.
