Firefox

Does Firefox have a future? Will they switch to chrome's engine to save dev costs? Which evil powers even decide which web standards everyone has to implement?

This time with a sterile, soulless OP image in order not to trigger anyone.

    you see "a crumbling ecosystem monopolized by an all-powerful megacorp", I see a market opportunity. nobody has been competing in the browser market because it's not sexy, but read the signs. Google is spiraling. their AI's a joke and it's all they care about. I'm not saying to short Google but don't be surprised when you start seeing disruptors in google's traditional market shares

      It would be very expensive to develop a new browser engine

      Chrome is doing fine. It's one of Google's only products that hasn't experienced massive degraded quality over the last few years. They understand how important it is.

    I'm fully confident that, with manifest V3 crippling adblockers on chromium browsers, Mozilla will successfully waste a great opportunity at increasing their market share.

      basically Floorp is copying a bunch of shit from Vivaldi, and now FF is gonna copy a bunch of shit from Floorp (already starting to happen) as it gets notoriety, and try to embrace-extend-extinguish it so they can go back to not doing jack shit again for another decade or so. Brilliant stratagem

      It's just building in some extensions, it doesn't have it's own rendering engine.

    A better future than Chrome, that's for sure.
    Better ads blocking, performance, customization & whatnot.

    FF is fading into obscurity and it deserves to.

    Mozilla turned it into a Google Chrome with worse performance in terms of user privacy.

    Why does Firefox contain Chrome source code?

      The answer is already in the URL path.
      The fact that you messed it means you shouldn't concern yourself about this.

    Firefox is about to rise up from the ashes and there's nothing you can do to stop it. Today marks the death of Chrome.

    As a Firefox-based browser user I look forward to that day, because then Google can no longer claim not to hold a monopoly and they will be fricked even harder

    Firefox exists for the sole reason to give Google plausible deniability that it isn't a browser monopoly
    Mozilla gets paid by Google (officially through making Google the default search engine) merely to artificially prop up Firefox so Google can point to it and say "see there are other viable options for different browser, customers have a choice"

        Chrome reskin
        >Safari exists.
        Irrelevant because it only exists on Apple devices and so its market share has a ceiling

          You think a judge cares? The engine doesn't matter.
          >Irrelevant because it only exists on Apple devices and so its market share has a ceiling
          The phone market is almost exclusively Android and Apple, but nobody sees a monopoly problem here.

        Edge is Chromium-based now.
        Safari is only available for Mac users.
        I think Google also tries to use Chromium's "open-source" nature and the fact they only market "Google Chrome" as a shield against potential lawsuits, but everyone knows that the Chromium project itself is driven by Google and maintained by them alongside Intel/Microsoft engineers.
        The fact that Microsoft adopted Chromium for Edge doesn't mean much. Microsoft doesn't seem to have much say over the project so it doesn't matter.

        This argument gets repeated all the time here, but I don't understand how it's supposed to work.
        Firefox has almost no market share. Everything else is Blink or WebKit (Blink is just Google's WebKit fork.)

        I didn't notice it was already said that many times, I didn't read the thread tbh.
        Firefox has a low market share but it's easy to download and install on any device; the biggest issue is that Android comes with Chrome and you have no incentive to install Firefox. Chrome on Android has the same problem that Internet Explorer on Windows had: preinstalled and impossible to uninstall. Whether that alone is enough for a lawsuit is debatable I guess.
        Back in the IE days, Microsoft literally killed the competition. Google is keeping its """competition""" alive intentionally. It's a huge difference that matters immensely for the legal world I guess.

    They won't switch to Blink.
    The reason why Mozilla (and Firefox) still exist is because Google is paying them to avoid legal problems like Microsoft back in the IE days.
    If Firefox vanishes and everything is Chrome, Google WILL get sued for browser monopoly just like Microsoft did.
    Firefox will stay around and I don't think Gecko is going anywhere anytime soon. The only real way to solve this could be Mozilla falling back to Apple's WebKit to ride on Apple's work instead but the change would need a complete Firefox revamp, bigger than Quantum.
    It has a future, even if it's just to be a slightly worse Chrome alternative.

    I don't see firefox dying any time soon. I do think it will continue bleeding users until they get serious and invest a lot more money into competent programmers, and no matter how inept they are there is no way they never realize that and never change the course. But I do think today and in the next few years especially brave will overtake as the definitive go-to privacy and security oriented browser as long as eich does not make any more oopsies like brave did at release with the referal code drama.
