I know but I would use Edge before Chrome.

Why? Edge is still missing a lot of features at the moment.

It has never crashed on me, I have no idea of what build of 10 you are on but with every new build, Edge is also improved. I am using build 14986. Another reason is that Win 10 is tracking me so I do not need Google in the mix as well.:p

Oh, I see. I don't experience crashes often on any browser.

 

As for the build, I'm on the Anniversary Update. I think one of the problems with Edge is that feature updates are currently tied to the OS build, rather than being a separate thing like every other browser,

Firefox hasn't crashed on me for awhile now..  Looks like it has improved for me for now.  

 

I remember FF crashed a lot about 2 or 3 years ago.

Probably because of Flash.

Nope. Flash is disabled. I use HTML5 for videos.   It could be something else, not sure what caused it to crash. That I haven't seen a video yet  just articles with pictures ... BOOM, it crashed.  No flash videos were there.

I meant 2 or 3 years ago when there were sites still using Flash instead of HTML5.

I know. i said I disabled Flash.   I have placeholder for disabled flash in the pages.   

 

HTML5 started before that as preview stage before it was launched officially in 2014 for stable W3C.

      Firefox Nightly starts faster on Windows with skeleton UI
      by Paul Hill



      Mozilla has enabled a new feature in Firefox Nightly on Windows 10 called skeleton UI, the idea is that when you start the browser on the first boot, the browser shows a spartan window just to show that the browser is loading. According to Doug Thayer, a Firefox Platform Engineer, the change will give users a visual indication of the browser loading as much as 15 seconds faster than normal.

      Typically, Firefox should load fairly quickly on subsequent launches but when launching it for the first time after boot it can be slow as data on the hard drive has to be accessed. By offering a skeleton UI, users will know that Firefox is loading and not try to mash the Firefox icon which will only cause delays as several more browser windows attempt to open.



      The skeleton UI will show the outline of the URL bar and the tabs but icons in the browser chrome, tab names, and strings in the URL bar are just represented by thick grey lines to show that those bits of information are still loading.

      As with other features Mozilla attempts to implement in Firefox, the skeleton UI is currently only available on Windows 10 systems. It’ll likely come to other supported Windows versions soon enough but there’s also macOS and Linux which would benefit from the feature too. Once the skeleton UI launches on the stable branch on Windows 10, hopefully, we won’t have to wait long for it to show up on other platforms.

      Mozilla sets out its four climate commitments
      by Paul Hill



      Mozilla has set out its climate commitments today as it aims to significantly reduce its emissions and mitigate what it can’t avoid. Things it plans to implement include switching its offices to renewable energy, reviewing its travel policies, exploring cloud optimisation, and developing toolkits “for product integrity and design principles.” It will share more details of its plans as it works them out.

      The four commitments that the firm has pledged to follow include going carbon-neutral, significantly reducing its greenhouse gas footprint to meet or exceed the targets in the Paris Climate Agreement, it will lead openly by sharing materials, tools and methodologies so other firms can reduce their emissions in a similar way and it will look to develop products from a sustainability perspective and collaborate with others to “amplify” the impact.

      Commenting on the firm’s climate change responsibilities, Mozilla Firefox CEO Mitchell Baker said:

      Until now, the firm has been offsetting its emissions in order to be carbon-neutral but it knows that it’s better not to emit in the first place and this is what it wants to achieve in the coming years. It said that to bring down its emissions there will need to be a lot of change on the organisational and cultural level. Mozilla will provide training to staff and provide incentives to encourage employees to make changes.

      In 2021, the firm said it will look to strengthen a remote culture and incentivise more sustainable set-ups, it’ll look ensure travel is only done when necessary, it wants to achieve zero waste in offices and co-working spaces and it wants to look at going paper-free.

      Firefox 85 on Android will allow extension installs from AMO
      by Paul Hill



      Mozilla has announced that Firefox users on Android will be able to install browser extensions directly from addons.mozilla.org (AMO) starting with Firefox 85 which is due for release on January 25. The company said that allowing users to install extensions directly from AMO will help smooth out the installation process of add-ons.

      Until now, Firefox users on Android could only install add-ons that had been vetted directly from the browser’s Add-ons Manager; the firm will likely keep this installation method around. By allowing installation from AMO, users will be able to follow links to an extensions AMO page which friends may send them or that they read about online and easily install the extension from there.

      The new installation buttons that add compatibility for Firefox on Android will be added to the AMO website on Thursday during a scheduled site update that the firm conducts at regular intervals. If you’re using a pre-release version of Firefox 85 or above, you will be able to use these installation buttons from Thursday.

      Firefox’s refreshed Android browser was rolled out to users on the stable channel back in August last year but despite the complete overhaul of Firefox on Android, stats show that Firefox is still struggling on mobile. In July, when the final version of the old mobile Firefox was released, Firefox had 0.48% of the mobile market share. As of December 2020, it had only climbed to 0.51%.
