Bye Bye Firefox

I have been a long user of Firefox, mostly thanks to the adblock extension. But recently, Firefox decided to change the way arrows work on the web pages, they don't make the page scroll anymore. Meanwhile Chrome has now a good adblock plugin (that filters ads on load, not after load like it use to be) and is really much much faster than Firefox. So there is no more reason not to use it.

Hello Chrome, bye bye Firefox. Google has won the web browsers war.


  1. Works for me. Are you sure you haven't accidentally turned on Caret Browsing (by pressing F7.)

  2. I did the change for several months already. The only regret I have is the FF sync and the bookmark handling. For sync, Google has an alternative I did not try up to now.

    To be correct: I use Chromium, not Chrome. It's just much faster than FF and better suited also for smaller screens or those with low resolution on the vertical axes (netbooks, 16:10, 16:9 screens etc)
