I use a few browsers on my different desktops and I normally don’t really care what I’m using. The standard is pretty high when it comes to browsers and even the bad ones are good. But there is a browser I always get back to, and that is Firefox.
Although writing this little post about it gave me an opportunity to tweet that Firefox crashed a lot today, I won’t mind. It usually doesn’t (and has just had a major upgrade).
But the main reason is that it is cross platform, and that the plugins are just so good (Pocket and Evernote mostly).
I don’t use many plugins, but those I have integrate well (on all platforms I use) and the browser does actually feel faster on my mac than Chrome. Then the fact that it’s very developer friendly is a big plus.
But the main reason is the fuzzy feeling of control and trust. Mozilla isn’t selling my data, and they work actively to make the web a little bit more secure.
That really matters.
