I don’t know when I maybe the full jump but 5~7 years ago I switched from Firefox to Chrome. I am die hard google fan boy if you will, I love chrome and it’s integration with the apps and services that I use the most. Lately I have been getting quite a few crashes with Chrome, and overall slowness in browsing the web and video. I thought is was my internet connection or router and went down that path to resolving some of my issues.
I came was watching a recent episode of TekThing I think it was episode 15 where they talk about making the switch back to Firefox. Over the past few weeks /months I have be trying out FF every now and then.
Where I really noticed the difference was with my lower end machines where I want to stream video. I am a huge fan of Auto Racing and I love Motor Trend OnDemand channel. I was constantly getting Frame drops in chrome watching it full screen on my 1080p TV. so I though what the hell and tried Firefox. The videos were playing as smooth as butter.
Today on my main PC Chrome crashed again I am now going full speed in to using only FF.
It is simple to import everything over and get started. So far it feels snappier and I am really liking the change.
