More and more people are getting upset about Chrome doing sneaky stuff. Good.
What absolutely baffles me, is that people are trying to find out if using a modified version of Chromium should still be ok.
You are BY DEFINITION engaging in a fight you CAN NOT WIN.
My previous 'subtle' attempts with #GoogleIsEvil apparently weren't clear enough, so here's another try:
If you don't want to get fucked in the ass, you shouldn't evaluate the pros and cons of 'just the tip'.
GET THE FUCK OUT!
@FreePietje There's a reason people want to use chromium though, and it's because there's no good alternatives. In all honesty, as a longtime firefox fan, it just outright sucks for more js-heavy applications.
I don't recall such an experience, but I have no reason to doubt your/the statement.
I wonder if suck-age is because of (unfixable) technical inferiority, or bc sites are made for/optimized for Chrome, just like in the IE4 days.
At some low % marketshare, who's gonna care to make it work at all in FF?
I experimented with chromium based browsers like Opera and Brave for mobile recently and it certainly feels faster than FF.
That and the fact that Mozilla has taken some public stances recently that pissed me off a bit, so I looked into alternatives and there are indeed not a lot of choice. I still stick to FF on desktop
