Although we’re already four months into this 2013 year I was looking through some development documents for Chrome and I happened upon an implementation that made me think about Firefox, an old love of mine.
I’ll admit it, for most of my professional life I have used Firefox – the switch happened a few years ago to Google Chrome as my primary browser, but all through college and my early professional years I used Firefox. Ah, sweet, sweet memories.
Then something happened where development with it really plummeted and things just started getting weird. I know that’s not much of a technical explanation, but with the growth and quality of the Chrome Browser I ultimately left Firefox behind.
Anyways, I was simply curious to see what happened last year with Firefox and naturally Mozilla had created an infographic just for me:
Huh. These numbers look impressive but it won’t make me switch back, but it is neat to see a browser giant and the work that they’ve done in the past year.
Do you have fond memories of Firefox? Or, perhaps it’s still your primary browser? What’s keeping you there? What am I missing out on?
