    Is it Mozilla's engine that's bad or is it because devs are building sites optimised for Blink? Their engine is bad, it's only slightly better than Safari and that says a lot. It's lacking basic HTML5 features that other browsers had for years and the JavaScript engine is the same story. Mozilla engine doesnt lack any HTML5 and JS features, Google implements features that are still not standardised and make you change your site every time the spec changes. We have built a lot of HTML5 sites and web applications and Chrome is the offender by not supporting standards because they have their own version of the truth instead of whats signed off until the actual sign off happens. And some web devs run around changing their site to Googles idiotic approach.

    In between the lines - Mozilla: We're mad MS didn't pick us for the web engine.

    "What Microsoft didn't mention is how it will handle things that are Edge-specific. For example, if you stream Netflix through the browser, your only option for 4K streaming is Edge; everything else on Windows will get you 720p, except for Internet Explorer, which is 1080p." Hopefully Microsoft will not use the outdated media libraries that Chrome and Firefox use, and instead use the faster and secured pathways available on Windows. If not, they also won't be able to match the current media performance or battery life, so one would assume this would be a major goal. Maybe Microsoft will help duct tape Chromium up a bit, and 'push' the OSS community towards using a better model slowly. Right now the divergence in technology is vast, and there is no sign of Chromium or any OSS project moving away from their tired old model. Heck, maybe Microsoft could do something similar with NT, and SHOVE the OSS world to get off the last 20 years of regression. As I have said before, NT has a lot of things that just don't exist in any OSS OS technology, and they should have been sucking up ideas from NT for a long, long time. Instead they have RAN from anything Microsoft, and instead dig up Mach from the 80s or remake Minux with slightly better kernel model and then adhere to the insanity of freaking *nix as the OS model. (*nix should have died 25 years ago when better technologies became a reality.) This has created a massive stagnation of innovation, as the entire world moves back to *nix and older OS technologies, and everyone pays... This is why we have phones in 2018 that are less secure, less reliable and crash more than a complex PC. *rant off*

    Why do we need drivers to have support for a Store? What's next? driver support for Notepad?

    While I mostly agree with you, the problem is Chromium DOESN'T follow W3C guidelines. They put a lot of experimental stuff in their engine that doesn't follow guidelines. This is why a lot of people think EDGE was bad, because devs put Chromium specific features in that broke other browsers. Google is guilty of this themselves with YouTube and other online properties

    I hate you and every developer that just assumes everyone is using Chrome.

    After years and years of sucking money from Google at the cost of their own dignity and user base privacy, now they want to wag their fingers? Ya, they don't get a soap box to stand on here, especially when one of the main points of contribution by Microsoft to Chromium, is to lock down privacy and circumvent Google's theft of user data, something Firefox still hands to Google. I am no fan of Chromium's model or technology, but Firefox isn't any better. They could have adopted a newer engine model concept, instead, just like Chromium, they are equivalent to the IE1-8 engine model, which is horribly outdated. The web is a mass amount of code wrapped around content, and both Firefox and Chromium treat it like a 'document' that is displayed, instead of executed. Even today there are simple CSS and dynamic content tests where IE9 and/or Edge are 200-600x faster because of the model difference. (I think even some of the old IETestDrive content shows these differences.) The model difference is also why higher quality content runs consistently well on low end processors with IE9/Edge where the same content on Firefox or Chrome becomes a slideshow on a slower processor. - For a while, highly dynamic and rich content running on WP8's IE (1.5ghz device with 1GB of RAM), was faster than in Firefox or Chrome on the latest desktop/server multiple Xeon processor system with tons of RAM and a high end GPU. Sadly, most people didn't notice or understand or care why. So, this leaves the world falling back to an older technology, with hope that Microsoft will bring pieces of their browser model to Chromium. If Firefox wants to complain, then they need to step up their game and offer something better - unlike IE/Edge - they have a chance to get people to notice a better way of doing things and dump Chromium. (PS Microsoft originally wanted to use Netscape and help convert it from a 'browser' to an 'engine' and Netscape gave them the finger. So MS licensed Spyglass Mosaic and IE was born as an engine, the 'browser' was a place holder. I know Firefox is a distant branch from Netscape/Mozilla, but just imagine the difference in history if they had worked with Microsoft. In retrospect, even Marc Andreessen admitted they screwed themselves by passing on MS's offer.)

    *Ignorant IT people wouldn't let their employees use it. *Ignorant power users (the neighbor's boy) told everyone not to use it.

    Hoped this wasn't going to be the case. Been using Edge for a few live streams on an older device where it performs much faster than chrome.

    Clearly you don't have a clue what the rest of the world has to put up with and deal with from all the mess, chaos and destruction that the American government creates around the world! The OP posted something relevant, all the CIA does is lie, cheat and create a mess and destruction around the world! We, who are outside of the US are the one who have to suffer the consequences of American interference! So excuse us once in a while if we feel like "venting" for a bit.

    "suspected"? To what level does Canada and the rest of the world would bow down to this FUD from US? That's getting ridiculous.

    Don't be. Most are absolutely cool with the 6t. Besides, you'll never keep up with new phones. That is unless you are getting a Windows Phone. If you got the latest Windows Phone, you are all caught up. /s

    $39 for a clear piece of plastic lol. Or you can get one for 6 bucks: https://www.amazon.com/Trianiu...ywords=iphone+xr+clear+case Or splurge and get name brand for 11: https://www.amazon.com/Spigen-Ultra-Hybrid-Designed-iPhone/dp/B07GHMQDCJ/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1544040073&sr=8-3&keywords=iphone+xr+clear+case

    Part of the problem we're having now is that behaviour that was completely acceptable 20+ years ago is no longer considered acceptable, and yet we're judging folks based on the morals of today. You can't do that.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Apple jumps to chromium too with Mozilla eventually following. Apple has used WebKit for years. Blink is a fork of WebKit, so they kind of already do.

    Bad history? If you are talking about WindowsRT on the Surface? - It had good performance, but outside of Office and software built into Windows, was limited and locked to WinRT. Microsoft also didn't provide x86 emulation for Win32 and REFUSED to release a native development kit for WindowsRT. Sinofsky's people screwed both of these things, and also embarrassingly gutted WinRT to be virtually worthless for serious development. These devices do not have the limitations of WindowsRT. The x86 emulation/translation is there as a catch all, and Microsoft released a full native ARM64 SDK and development tools, so any software can be easily compiled to run at native speeds. -------- If you are talking about the current Windows ARM devices, they perform well, have awesome battery life, and even using x86 emulation hold their own compared to a mid range i5 notebook. This includes both the 835 and 850 existing devices. Windows itself and all 'native' software is really snappy, and with the recent release of the SDK a lot of native software is moving forward faster than expected. https://blogs.windows.com/buildingapps/2018/11/15/official-support-for-windows-10-on-arm-development Note the date, and also realize that the early 'beta' for the SDK/tools only started around May, if I remember correctly.
