Why So Many People Are Abandoning Chrome And Returning To Firefox?
The discussion regarding which browser is the best, fastest, stable and light is as complicated as talking about religion and soccer. Despite being more easily measurable, the quality of a browser is also influenced by factors less "soft" and also that are highly controversial.
There is no denying the fact that Google Chrome still reigns supreme when it comes to browsers, whether desktop (1st place) or mobile devices (2nd place). The Internet Explorer is also in a position of respect, but it already has become somewhat outdated and its use is closely linked to the use of Windows.
However, there are factors that indicate that this situation is about to change and the one that will probably come out on top is Firefox. Do you want to understand why? Then check out the following arguments.
1. Firefox is open source
An argument that may seem trivial to some, in fact, conceals a very important advantage for Firefox: the ability in fixing bugs and glitches. The Mozilla Foundation, which maintains Firefox, makes the browser available to all – despite using its own license to do this, the Mozilla Public License (MLP).
In this way, the process of finding and fixing the bugs of the program takes place in a more collaborative manner than Chrome. The Google browser, however, also maintains part of its open source, but the result is a browser that is not used by the mass.
2. Firefox has more (and better) extensions
Over time, Firefox practically became synonymous with good extensions and still holds that position with some flexibility. Being open-code software probably contributed to that, which made it a great browser for those looking to improve productivity.
Libraries of both are huge, but Firefox does better because the extensions tend to work best for it. After all, many were simply "carried" to the Google browser. And the power of the extensions is indisputable: those who use cannot live without them.
