I do not like Firefox!
Sorry, excuse me. Working with each and every browser on the market, I must make sure that all browsers are working with all my sites and I have to say that the browser that gives me the most grief, is the big-ol clunky, slow, memory hog we all call Firefox.
As a side note, check out The Evolution of Browsers, it’s an interactive Flash that shows the timeline of the browsers and what technologies have come with them. Very cool find, for an extra nugget on this post.
It wasn’t until Chrome came out that serious competition took arms against them. And Chrome did just what Firefox did. Everything Firefox was doing wrong, Chrome did the opposite while everything that Firefox was doing right, Chrome tried to make it better.
So, we take the full swing. Firefox is watching Chrome eat up their share, so what do they do now? They copy Chrome. They began with the quicker release cycle. They are trying to get more light weight and they are building native debugging into the browser now. In-fact, they have 3D debugging now! It’s still not all there, but it’s fun to see how these browsers are so quickly adapting and changing to one another. And by the way, you cannot make much money off browsers these days. So Firefox is now back and competing as tough as they can. Let’s see what happens.
