        That sounds like we can expect benchmarks soon

          It looks like the timing is right for that to be the source of the Ares6 and Kraken regressions

          Those benchmarks aren't everything though, and it looks like speedometer improves slightly

            Good news ! (Even though I switched to Vivaldi a couple of weeks ago, and not looking back).

            I'm still hoping for Mozilla to straighten their priorities, only then will I reconsider my default browser.

              Enjoy your binary blob I guess. Any semblance of privacy goes down the drain.

                Whenever a new Firefox browser is released I give it a try, but for a few years now it just doesn't work on some websites. The primary problems are with forums, and there just doesn't seem to be any way to get around the issues. Of course I first try configuring Firefox the same way as Chrome, primarily with UBlock and HTML5 Autoplay Blocker. And then I try it with all blockers, including the built-in ones, disabled. But no matter what I do it just doesn't work.

                Of course I've also tried Chromium, but it doesn't work with some streaming sites, even with protected content enabled.

                So I always end up having to use Chrome as my default browser. And I really wish that weren't the case.

                By the way, the new "Daylight" Android Firefox is an absolute disaster. And Android Chrome always has been as well. So I ended up having to download an APK for the last Fennec Firefox, as it's the only Android browser that works with extensions, allows a custom home page, regular bookmarks, etc.

                  Yeah. I really dislike all the built-in blockers and privacy crap Firefox includes these days. And I mean crap because those break more websites than anything else in my experience. Plus, unlike extensions that can be disabled and enabled from the toolbar, the built-in ones require me to go into the settings menu and disable them there...just an extra layer of annoyance.

                  I'm still a Firefox user, but damn are they trying my patience.

                    It's the internet. Any semblance of privacy goes down the drain the second you connect to a website.
