Try Palemoon and Lawlietfox browsers and you will be amazed how fast firefox can be.

Uses less RAM too. Also, Opera and Google worked together on the engine so Chromium is Opera just as much as Opera is Chromium. Anyway, Firefox, Opera and Vivaldi are my favorite browsers.
Uh... do these people that boast around Opera even realize that browser is now (pretty much) a skinned Chrome rebrand?
The only reason I find Opera better than any other browser is because of it's Advanced Keyboard shortcuts & mouse gestures.
the version numbers moved too fast. moved more than 3 in one year.
naturally, should not see a version of software jumped 1 in period of less than 3 years
keep inflating the the version numbers, this version has been made irrelevant
there are the sub version number for use. .xx.xx

1. Type this into the URL bar and hit enter:
2. Create a new preference: right click --> new --> boolean
3. Set browser.tabs.remote.force-enable to TRUE
4. Find and set this preference for example to 10 (this preference defines how many processes the Firefox can create)
The only browser which still doesn't support "smooth" pinch zoom on Windows 10 or may be on every other platforms.
Its ram usage. If you leave it running for a few hours it jumps up to over 1.5 gb ram usage.
I have to periodically close it and reopen and restore tabs. But i still use it because im used to the interface
That all depends on what add-ons you're using. I have everything I need in Vivaldi/Chrome but I still prefer most extensions found in FireFox.
after opera presto died .. gecko's firefox is the flagship for "user over webpage " .. hope it wont abandon gecko in favor of webkit's filth
I was an avid FF user, but few weeks ago tried Opera and switched totally to this marvelous browser. I wasn't expecting, that there can be something better than FF but, believe me, is. However I still have FF as backup and see that 50th is much faster than earlier editions. Besides they could stop to pretend Chrome visually.

I prefer multiple restarts a day over inconvenient browsing with only some basic functionality (Even with extensions...there are just no extensions for many things you can do in Firefox with proper extensions).

The speed is what drew me back to it and it just looks better on Windows 10. I'm proud to say I am a long-time FF user since Firebird from early 03.
