I think FF performs better than Chromium and thats why I stuck with it plus I like not being tied to Google. Enjoy!

Hmmm... Well, like I said before am still in "testing mode" and so far so good. I also mentioned that I found some "shortcomings". For instance, in Chrome/Chromium, I can control tabs with keyboard by holding Ctrl + 1,2,3... that way I can switch from one tab to another quickly, in FF this is a bit different, I have to use Ctrl + PagDown/PagUp which you can too in Chrome/Chromium, but it feels a bit slower IMO. I'm a keyboard user and try to make the most of every app I use with it, and with KDE I can do that smile By the way, when I explained how to "create an app for any website" in FF, I forgot to mention one important step; since this isn't enabled by default, you have to go to about: config in FF, click on "Accept" and search for browser.ssb.enabled and double-click on it to change its default value false to true, restart FF and on new launch the options will be available.

I dont use keyboard commands very often so its not really an issue for me with FF.

Reading here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/ke … ks-quickly I learned that I can switch tabs with Alt + 1,2,3... there are some interesting and useful ones smile

Well I do and IMO most people should since it allows performing things quickly.

I find the way I do things presently to work just fine but to each his own.
