    Chrome first. IE second if Chrome can't do the task. All the complaints that Chrome uses a lot of Cpu resources must be taken out of thin air. Can't see the big hit on performance if I run benchmark in the background and with other tasks up. Maybe if you run it on today's modern thin and flimsy T*******books. Other can perhaps confirm yes or no.

    What I don't like with it is such moves like this...
    Chrome's stupid new rounded look - You mean it's pretty? Or you mean it's Ugly?

    And for those Firefox lovers:vbthumbsup:

    Firefox with ads on New Tab Page

    Closing Words
    Mozilla needs to rethink its strategy in regards to advertisement in Firefox; the browser needs a toggle to disable advertisement entirely in the browser and better descriptions for preferences and options that may display ads.

    The way advertisement is integrated in the browser right now is detrimental as it erodes trust in Mozilla.

    Firefox with banner at the bottom of the New Tab page
    [​IMG] good Morning December 31, 2018 10:35

    Mozilla Firefox currently seems to be testing a new kind of advertising among US users. In addition to the already normal (recommended) advertising tiles for Amazon, etc., they have now started to show more banner ads below in the new tab view. This new service is also documented in the Mozilla wiki .

    Hmmm.... I've never seen any ads on Firefox. Perhaps my version for Linux Mint is immune? And if not, I can always turn it off if I find it gets in my way. ;) Happy New Year!!

    "New Tab Page to some users of the browser."

    "Firefox users may disable... in the web browser "

    No ads here either, even if there were, ublock origin.

    Kind of have to, even this site hijacks my desktop browsers and it's one of the only sites I frequent.

    Those were already disabled. Even at stock settings I saw no ads on FF64 on windows and linux.

    Even I didn't see the ads. Maybe Linux distros repackaged it by removing useless codes.

    I started using Firefox when it was Mozilla. I have always hated IE. That extended to Edge. There was a time when Firefox started to bloat to a point where I was looking for alternatives. I've used most of them in your list, Opera, Maxthon, WaterFox, Brave, Pale Moon, etc. Once Chrome officially started making waves I switched over that that and been using it ever since, however it's been getting bloaty lately and so I've always kept an eye on Firefox and had them both installed on all my devices. Lately it looks like Firefox is once again pulling way out ahead so I will start using that again - it's like coming home.

    Mozilla Says It Didn’t Make Any Money From Booking.com

    Mozilla has been taking heat for
    promoting Booking.com via a snippet on Firefox’s New Tab page. Contrary to speculation, Mozilla told us that “zero money changed hands.” Also, Firefox didn’t share any data with Booking.com, and the snippet wasn’t targeted.

    This is all very interesting because Mozilla’s previous statements didn’t do much to clear this up. Despite Mozilla claiming this “experiment” wasn’t an advertisement or paid placement

    Mozilla says its goal was just “to provide more value to Firefox users.”o_O But no matter what Mozilla calls it. It is and remains advertising.

    I havent noticed any ads with Firefox but then again i always use Adblocker Ultimate or other similar ad blockers add-ons over the years and same with chrome.

    Its surprising that people are still browsing the internet without any ad-blocker add-ons installed. Sure it might be annoying for some sites to force you to disable it for their site but you can easily re-enable it and/or put that site on your filter list.

    OT: Firefox but i also use chrome, IE, and Brave at times
