@amit @pimoore Yeah, it is sad to see how far Firefox has fallen 😔 I still like the browser, and I do want them to stay relevant enough to keep a seat at the table, so to speak, when talking about the direction of the web. But the questionable decisions they keep making about their browser (or behind the scenes, like the recent Facebook/Meta thing or the crypto controversy before that) are hard to take.
@cdevroe Yeah, the lack of an iOS app might become an issue for me as well. Currently I'm still using Firefox on my iPhone. For me personally I think the "handoff" feature might be good enough, but we'll see. It's definitely not a full shared history.
@Stefanyeah Yeah, do it! Brave has never really appealed to me, but if you like it, Vivaldi should be pretty similar under the hood (both being built on Chromium) – just with their many UI improvements 😃
@rom Yeah, I sympathise with that. I definitely don't want Google to have a controlling stake in the web, either, but Firefox can't keep pushing users away and expect them to stay there just to stick it to Google 😔 Chromium is (slightly) broader than just Google, too – Microsoft contributes to it now they don't have their own engine any more, for example. I feel like Safari/WebKit is the main bulwark against Blink domination now, but I'd like Gecko to stay in the contest too. If a Vivaldi-like browser was built on Firefox (and maintained adequately, etc.) I'd have preferred to use that, for sure.
