Bye Bye Firefox

08 Oct

Firefox you can go to hellAt first I was a faithful user of Internet Explorer, I couldn’t even stand Firefox until one day, a few years ago, I got about 50 viruses on my PC (thank you Norton) and kept getting a bunch of fake pop ups every few seconds as a result of those viruses, so I cleaned up my PC (with the best antivirus ever, Kaspersky) and moved on to Firefox.

I could say that I’ve been using Firefox since 3 was released and I’m not going to lie, I’ve been happy…until now.

It’s been going on for several months, but yesterday was the last straw. You see, Firefox keeps freezing on me, I can’t even browse anything on the net anymore without having to wait a few minutes for it to respond.

A few nights ago after I restarted Firefox, I logged onto Facebook and OMG I saw ads! And at the same time realized that my theme was not the pitch black one I’m used to. It turns out that for some reason the theme was reset to default and Adblock Plus was uninstalled.

Last night when Firefox froze it didn’t recover, I waited several minutes and nothing, I opened task manager and clicked end process several times, nothing, I tried to reboot my PC and it wouldn’t reboot because Firefox was being a non responsive asshole so I had to unsafely reboot my PC.

Needless to say that as soon as my PC started up, I made Google Chrome my default browser and imported my passwords, history, bookmarks and whatever else I needed from FF and haven’t looked back.

So far, I’m happy with Google Chrome, I have no complaints and I’m even surprised at how fast it is compared to Firefox.

      I can’t let things go easily, I put up with FF for long enough…I know it’s prob not their fault since I read somewhere that Microsoft released a bug in their updates that make FF worse that IE. I still miss FF, and I really don’t like Chrome’s interface that much but I guess I can get used to it, eventually. As for Opera…blech…never liked it.
