    FF57 could be the version that pushes me to Chrome, they're killing support for a load of useful addons, already happened in Nightly afaik

    yes i know what you mean, you see outdated to appear in your addons but those addons still work , after testing them dispite the fact that outadted message appears on these addons, you notice they still do the job like "ublock origin and greasemonkey", they still block all advertising on the net, so that's good news, we will see what wil happen in the next weeks after the new firefox update release.

    Firefox is changing? ...I do not believe, it is already so bad that no more cannot get worse.

    Hi, companion! :hug2: I knew I was one the last few on earth still using it, it's always nice to meet another Highlander, and btw, I too really enjoy Edge besides Opera. Cheers :cheers:

    IMO, FireFox is going to loose even more users not gaining new ones.

    At the minute they say "Legacy" but still work, but apparently with v.57 they will be disabled unless the devs update them to a new standard, which a lot of them will not

    When the new Ff comes out, I expect that most existing add-ons won’t work or work erratically. No doubt many will be rewritten, but which ones and when, it’s anybody’s guess. Unless Ff picks up in popularity, I don’t see excessive enthusiasm on the part of add-on developers. Bear also in mind that new versions of the add-ons may have bugs and security holes. So I wouldn't advise too much of a hurry to switch over to the new edition.

    Yes, the way to go, at least there will be half a year to read all the reviews from users. But I have little hope. Changing from a fox to some idiotic superhero is an obvious sign they are aiming at a large share of the retard market, where no one has the questions we here have.

    They do not give a f…. about the 6% users they still have who are using Ff in spite of all the insulting changes they made. Probably ányway because by now they have understood that most of them only use Ff, because there is no really usable alternative.


    They obviously read Dave Egger’s “The Cicle” and seeing all the money that can be made, like Uncle Scrooge, their pupils turned into $-Signs. They want more “profit” because “no-profit or not”, management income raises depend on more money coming in.

    “Firefox’s recent failures to disclosure of a possible membership plan to make money. In its bid to reclaim lost relevance, the nonprofit organization is also counting on software beyond the browser, financial growth that should help it survive, and even online services that challenge Google’s search power.”

    Yes, who would not want to pay for something that used to be free, just to then end up with another google?

    And what I about that: “The title bar across the top of the browser will become dark.”

    Now I am convinced, IK gotta have that…. But it gets even better:

    “Mozilla is also developing artificial intelligence technology to spot any problems that might come from all the changes. The team trained an AI to learn what correctly rendered websites look like so it can raise the alarm when something looks wrong, Mayo says. Regular old humans also test the new tech, too.”

    So all that ever happens on OUR computer can and will go straight to Mozilla?

    Making it metro style Has taken the fire out of it, like its had a bucket of water chucked over it.

    Flat metro style stuff always looks crap. Probably some social media addicted snot straight from school said "hey, i got a really good idea".

    So thats the end of Ff. Looks like Opera or this new Slimjet are the best alternatives.
