Sorry Firefox. You used to be the shit. Now you are slow, clunky, and remind me of a fat cow at the dinner trough constantly eating up muh memory. Your adblocker also has jumped the shark. Despite updates, you just can't keep the pounds off. It's been real. 

 

XoXo,

I feel like I've been using Chrome for half the time poor Mexas has been suffering with Firefox.

Back when I was really into Conquer Club, folks would write some great add-ons that required Firefox.

Treasury apps at multiple banks don't play well with chrome combined with periodic freezing in chrome. I have no issues at all so far with ff.

And here I thought it was because you were a hipster.

 

It's one thing if it is a "business" related issue.  What do you use on your personal time?

These are banking websites, but far different than what you use for personal banking. Issues normally arise when it comes to running reports on these sites.

FWIW, I have issues using Chrome when working with the Boy Scouts of America website that gives me access to my Troops roster information (I'm the Committee Chair).  Works better in IE or FF.  Seems like some bigger entities don't care about the buggy issues with Chrome and it's just easier to flip over to one of the browsers that it doesn't have issues with.

I don't understand why things don't work on Chrome. They are almost 60% of the desktop market, but I still have to cycle through Chrome, FF, and IE.

Is it strange that I don't even know what firefax, Crom, or EI are? I only internet via free range smoke signal.
