Not sure if this has been talked about, but I would like to know. What browser do you use and why do you think it’s better than the others in your own opinion?
I have personally used FireFox for many ages and tend to keep it that way. I’ve used FireFox for web development and I find that most of the development tools are very helpful. I’m not sure if Google Chrome, IE, Opera, and other browsers have this feature, but FireFox has a feature where you can set the screen to a certain width & height. This is a very good feature if you want to create responsive websites.
Also, aside from developing using FireFox. I have this hate towards whatever company doesn’t follow their main goals. I feel that companies like Google are pain in the behind because they seem to be expanding where they have no expertise in. Now before you call me a hater, I already know that big companies like Google hire people with all sorts of professions so I cannot judge. But what I can judge is that they have fallen really really far from what they truly were supposed to be.
Example of what I mean. Back in the old days when the internet was just a baby and Wikipedia was not trusted, Google was the big hit of all hits for search engines. I remember people used to use
search.com as an alternative to
google.com. I believe that is where they began (as far as I remember). Fast forward some odd decades later, Google has expanded to web browsers, emails, social media, .etc.
I believe that they are threatened by some other companies and they want to try and up their game which isn’t wrong, but I feel like they have lost their main goal which is search engine. I believe Bing is actually beating them now in search engine.
More examples of what I mean by threatened.
When Facebook became the big hit for social media, I remember reading or hearing that Google actually tried to offer Mark Zuckerberg a substantial amount of money to buy out Facebook, but Mark said no. Later that year after Mark’s “no” proposal to Google, Google came out with Google +. How are they not threatened if a really popular and big company said no to them and the same exact year, they came out with a platform that is related in that area?
Another example. Web browsers. Back in the old days, it’s either Internet Explorer or FireFox. In the year of 2008, Google releases Google Chrome to compete with FireFox. How is this not being “threatened” if 2 big companies were the most talked about for web browsers?
I would go to my grave still using FireFox. I just honestly don’t like Google based on their actions (web browser wise and product wise). Yes, it’s really important for a company to expand, but I feel like where Google is threatened, they try to expand in that area.
I mean, I don’t know a lot of programming language and I would love to learn more, but if someone was more successful than I am in that language or area, I wouldn’t actually want to compete with them because I know nothing about that area. I would totally make a fool of myself if I did that.
Call me a hater, I just don’t like Google Chrome nor Google itself even though they are pretty big.
