Firefox – The returnal

EnglishWeb browsing No comments - Kagamin

It has been about nine months since I switched to Chromium. I didn’t and don’t have a single problem with it but yesterday I decided to go back to Firefox.

Yep, a Firefox don’t really like other foxes to come and compete with him…

The first thought crossed my mind was like… “WELCOME TO MOZILLA CHROMIUM“. Firefox lost all of its uniqueness and became another Chrome-like browser. After using Chromium for months I don’t really care but it’s sad. We never asked for this change.

However things are improved:

  • first and foremost there are capable plugins for what I consider important (for example I’m huge fan of Panorama or Tab Groups)
  • also “cross-platform” plugins are cool
  • it’s GNU/Linux support is better now
  • broken things are not so broken (like you can opt out survey/studies now)
  • the general r...

The story of Mozilla and the violation of their users’ trust

Hmm, things starting to get worse.

Damn, he is telling the truth. I read all of those articles in the past.

P.S.: There is a slight chance AMD will make a kill switch for PSP. If that’s true I will hop on the Ryzen train.

Is GCC on our doorstep?

Today I will talk about *CENSORED* so I think we *CENSORED* so that’s why we should *CENSORED*. If today’s trend continue then “free speech” in the future will look something like this.

GCC is an arconym for Global Corporate Congress and it is a reference to a show called Continuum. The future that show depict is quite dark and somewhat realistic. A future where big companies are in control of every aspect of life after the fall of governments. I don’t want to live a world like that PERIOD.

Firefox – every good thing has come to an end…

EnglishRantWeb browsing One comment - Kagamin

I started to use Firefox as a main browser around 2007 but after almost ten years I can’t agree anymore with the direction Mozilla and their browser have recently taken. For example I hate Australis but with add-ons like Classic Theme Restorer I can mostly restore the original layout of the browser. By the way more than half of the addons I use are functionality restoring ones that put back the features Mozilla removed (like Panorama, the download window etc). With Firefox 57 that will change because XPCOM and XUL will be removed from the equation. So what will differ Firefox from any chrome-based browser? Almost NOTHING. Plus I don’t want experience the growing pain of the new back-end as an user.

Ghostery – it’s time to switch

After the last update Ghostery decided to not work neither of my devices (browser: Firefox, OS: Linux and Windows). So I thought it was time to replace with another addon. I chose Ublock Origin and I don’t regret my decision.

Choose wisely your fox’s companion!
