Hi, I'm Mike. I'm a web developer. This is my story.

A Month With Firefox

I was browsing reddit recently and found a topic about how Chrome is suprisingly poor on privacy. By default it collects data on what sites you browse and when. I had also heard that Firefox quantum has surpassed Chrome in speed and that the dev tools are just as good if not better than Chrome’s. So I thought what the heck, I’ll try out Firefox as my default browser for a bit and see how it goes.

Let’s see how the two browsers compare from a web developer’s point of view.

General Impressions

MultiFirefox Eew.

Firefox Confusion How do I know which profile this is?

Network Tab

That “File” column - that’s as big as it gets. If you have any query string params you can’t see what the damn url is unless you open the detail pane!

about:config Blech
