Ultra botnet

>> No.82786101

name me a browser that doesn't have those problems. The only ones you'll find are firefox forks like LibreWolf or icecat. And firefox can be just as good as LibreWolf with a simple user.js tweak that takes seconds to install.

oh you removed the proprietary blobs with a user.js tweak?

>> No.82787074

google botnet.
Only proprietary element is WVCDM which is not included with firefox unto itself but rather a component that is installed *with user permission* when accessing DRM-protected pages (eg spotify web client) All i have to do is say no. or i can completely block Widevine CDM prompts with user.js

Slower, less secure, less compatible, not even private, more and more customisability is stripped out with every update. Use Ungoogled Chromium and Bromite

>what is the tasklist for Edge or Chrome with the same amount of autism ?
That's the thing, there isn't. A couple of ://flags options to enable features (not disable, like in Trannyfox) and some settings here and there. The browsers don't fight against you at every update.

I'm sick of firefox slowly sinking into the mud, but isn't it funny how threads around here only ever shit on FF and never on Chrome.
I can't recall a single thread around here that specifically shit on Chrome in quite a while.

Firefox is a shit browser.
Firefox is also the least shit browser of them all...

>> No.82802487

essentially OP isn't shitting on firefox. /g/ is full of zoomies and gaymers who enjoy the botnet getting crammed in their ass. They literally think anything without money crammed into it and that doesn't have a good marketshare is trash. Name the last windows hate thread you've seen in a while?
any sane /g/entooman would use icecat, firefox (about:config'd), or palememe.

If firefox becomes too marginalized we'll end up with google dictating what the web is.

My gray hairs remember when one browser (IE) ruled the internet and many websites where straight up broken on other browsers. My browser (Opera) had to make fixes to fix the websites with broken code that happened to work in IE.
