      Why is the hate against Firefox? It's faster than Chrome for some time now. https://arewefastyet.com/
      Incidentally, Google has retired their Octane benchmark as soon as Firefox surpassed Chrome in it...

        Things I miss in Firefox:
        • WebSockets and Server-Sent Events (SSE) debugging in developer tools.
        • Support for the "system-ui" CSS font.
        • Support for the <dialog> element.
        • Wayland support.
        • Client-side decorations (CSD) / GTK HeaderBar is still a bit buggy.
        • Input type datetime behavior seems be a bit inconsistent/unpredictable when pressing tab or right arrow. Entering years with 5 numbers, etc.
        I really look forward to the Rust-powered WebRender backend.

          I dumped Chrome a month ago after all the weird freezes and Apps being part of the mass flesh ram theif that is chrome.

          Im sure there were other reasons I cant recall.

          Firefox has come a long way.

          If I was in charge I would also prefer that my users use a reasonably current version of the browser. Especially after the new rendering engine.

            Good. Time to move on. GTK2 is dead tech. Let it go. Clean the cruff.

              Really, GTK3 is probably most hated peace of software in this decade, it deserve gold medal for that

                they'll stick with Firefox52 till i guess firefox60 is released , Redhat afaik will be making Python3 default eventually, whether that'll be in RHEL8 or a RHEL7 i do not know, ( infact thats not that clear ) https://lists.fedoraproject.org/arch...63NCF2Y6MDWFJ/

                  Finally, this is good news, they needed really long for this... hopefully they will provide Wayland support now as well!

                      Yes, like or not only silver medal goes to SystemD

                      Hm, and bronze i would divide to Mir and Wayland

                      Interestingly, from a POV of RHEL/CentOS 6 user nothing happened yet

                      But titanium medal for sure goes to me as i like smiles while some people don't
