    Worse performance, more resources used, sites not loading properly, sites not working at all, telemetry worse than chrome's out of the box, missing basic quality of life like "Search for image with Google" when right clicking on image you want to reverse search, frame skipping during video playback, no support for 4K DRM codecs that are owned by google and microsoft, if you remove chromium completely from PC then no support for vidya launchers that run chromium, etc. the list goes on.

    Welcome to the family son.

      Firefox having no support for h265/HEVC has nothing to do with patents. They can support it tomorrow if they want.

      After all, Chrome and Edge support it, but don't pay any license (that would be impossible to support for a product as common as a web browser.) They just have a plugin that uses your GPU's h265 decoding.

      Firefox has the same sort of plugin for another proprietary codec - h264. They can just support h265 the same way. They don't do it because the developers are mentally ill California transgenders who think supporting a great (but proprietary) codec is like screaming Black person in a crowded room

        Google played extreme hardball with the MPEG LA back in 2011 to get a royalty exemption for AVC, basically threatening to make it obsolete, and probably did something similar for HEVC.
        Mozilla has no negotiating position for something like that.

      Google already did that on their own when they replaced it with Google Lens.

    the best browser out there if you have 10.something GB of ram to spare, if you don't don't bother at all
    Note: I'm pretty sure the memory leak was introduced on purpose (by firefox) to further shittify firefox overall

        Just use Librewolf so you don't send telemetry to pozilla

    You will need to disable their spyware, advertising, and bloat with the following user.js, otherwise it will be no different than using Chrome.

    Ublock support for the foreseeable future
    Really the only reason I use it over chrome
    Firefox markets itself as privacy focused, which may be true compared to other mainstream browsers, but not so much more that it would matter
    The big reason I use it is I hate seeing ads and they aren't promising (yet) to kill ad blockers and the mobile app allows extensions (like ad blockers)
    Just don't go into it expecting to become le internet ghosterino because that's not what you'll get

    Feels old. As far as I remember Chrome is "the new browser by Google for Android phones". Why did desktop people even went for it?

      I first learned of Chrome when I ran an installer from Sourceforge or some site like that and Chrome came up as one of those bloatware installation options desperate companies use to trick Windows idiots into installing their spyware. At that moment I should have dumped all my money into Google stock.

    Picture in picture video player is nice
    And there's an add-on for Multi-Account Containers that's useful
    UBlock Origin is the adblocker to use
    And you have to change the default search option in settings or it'll use Google

    more customizability and minor inconveniences really
    different font rendering on some parts of sites when using hardware acceleration
    on some websites "open image in new tab" opens a stretched 1x1.gif overlay instead of the image chrome would've opened
    downloading blobs is less easy
    lacking hevc support
    search bar sends you to the main page of a website every time if you don't choose a lower result manually

    no electron related problems
    no sudden removal of features you've used daily
    ctrl + shift + t works on private tabs

    You'll be underwhelmed.
    Its just a browser with a superficial experience that's going to be pretty darn similar.
    You won't regret it, but you're still clearly over excited because you're making way too big a deal over this, and you'll probably take the daily shit on Firefox troll threads way too personally.
