Dyskusje o FireFox vs Chrome, the Battle of the Browsers

FireFox vs Chrome, the Battle of the Browsers - "has integrated flash" not a big benefit for Linux when an update comes out that brakes it only on Linux but not on Mac or PC. And when you asked Google support they ware like IDK.
- Interesting... But who can say, that any of these or other browsers won't track your data? No one.

In my opinion, you can't be 100% sure, that no one track you. I guess it's about what you want to hide. If it's something, that breaks the law - it's good, when NSA or CIA hunt you down. But when we talk about our private data - you can secure it very good, if you have the right tools.

In the end, I must say, that it's not about browser, but about you and your knowledge about how to secure your private data. 
- Tried to like Chrome on Windows but it is a resource hog on my desktop running XP and on my wife's Windows 7 laptop. 10 tabs open and it slows to a crawl then locks up. While I can have upwards of 250 tabs open on Firefox. Yes, 250 tabs. But on Linux Chrome runs fine for me.
- Thanks for the video.
Well, as for using multiple profiles with firefox, it is possible and easily done:
To open profile manager, in command line:
  firefox -p
  "c:/ <path to firefox.exe> -p
then the profile manager will appear where you can set up as many profile as you need.
To open more than one instace with different profiles, use "-p -no-remote" instead of "-p" in the previous commands.
To spare time, make a desktop launcher (or shortcut) to launch firefox with the wanted additional parameters.

Happy Firefoxing ;)
- Very interesting. But how does Netscape Navigator fit into the picture?
Serious though: I think about the browser question very pragmatically. As in I prefer the browser that hinders me the least in my browsing needs. I used to use Opera a few years back, because the interface, especially the tabbed browsing interface, spoke to me and felt the most natural.
But then I got annoyed with the fact that I encountered more and more sites that wouldn't display properly or at all. So I switched to Firefox and used that for a long time until it began to have issues with buffering youtube videos. After researching online I discovered that a lot of people seemed to have the same problem and there were rumors going around about google supposedly shafting firefox users on purpose. So, begrudgingly, I switched again to Chrome which solved the problem. Weirdly though after a few months Chrome began to have trouble with youtube too and since it had lost that advantage over Firefox and due to a specific, very annoying property of Chrome, I switched back.
So what is that property and why did I prefer Firefox over Chrome in the end? Well, you said both browsers were about equally customizable. Which I don't agree with ... I had huge trouble to get Chrome to behave how I wanted it to without installing tons and tons of plug-ins. One very glaring omission that is kind of inexcusable not being able to turn off browsing history. But that is just the tip of the iceberg. I wasn't able for example to tell Chrome what I wanted to see when I opened up the browser, or a new tab.
These are all things that, in Firefox, are as easy as opening the options menu and setting it up exactly as you like. Out of the box, Firefox gives you tons more options, that Chrome doesn't. So that is a definite advantage for Firefox in my opinion.
- I do a lot of streaming of live sports and firefox does the job perfectly while Chromium does a poor job.even when using pepper flash it cannot stream live sports well.
- I am a PCLinuxOS user and I only use Firefox. As you explain the feature of using Chrome for the multi-profile use is convenient; but the fact that NSA can spy on you with Chrome makes me run from it.  When we talk about flash in Firefox;  I have noticed through my distro hopping, Adobe flash is being included in many of the repos within the Linux community. I've always been able to find the best suitable version for Firefox. Thanks for the vid!
- Well in the 90's IE became the dominant browser because it came bundled free and pre-installed with Windows despite other browsers being much better at the time.
- I use Firefox, but when I was at university, some computers would often only have Chrome as a choice, and would often crash, and also seemed most prone to the viruses. Our school also had university email via Google, and the professor's were even required to communicate via Google instead of Lotus Notes, which most other universities used.

One of my professor told me about the torture she went thru involving IE, which they used for downloading updates, and got worms, so every subsequent time she updated, she would get more worms. Even when told not to update b/c this would happen, she had to b/c the update was required to use a browser.
- I haven't used any of those browsers as my primary browser in quite sometime actually. I've been in love with opera for the past few years and can't really go back. After getting used to gesture controls fro browsing its always jarring to use a different browser.
- I personally use a couple of Firefox forks, CyberFox x64 for my main windows computer (As it has an optimized version for AMD Cpu's), and Palemoon for all of my other PCs, which run Mint 17.

I really like the HTML5 support in Chrome, but I refuse to use Google's own Chrome due to privacy, and the Chrome forks I've tried all had some stability problems with my particular PC. Though I haven't tried Chromium.

I'd also say that the settings menu in Firefox is far more friendly and easier to use than Chrome's, in my opinion.

I'm quite fond of Opera now that it uses Chrome's engine, but not being able to change the theme at all completely ruins the experience for me. Which is a shame, seeing as it was quite stable.
- Firefox has great flash just not the newest version. I develop for flash but i don't use Google Chrome. This is because I NEED to use pipe-light for flash so I have the same experience that all windows users have. There is no proof since Google Chrome isn't open source that they haven't changed flash at all and I need the same flash that windows has. So using pipe-light gives me the windows version of flash.
- I use Firefox to watch Extra Credits (The YouTube Channel.) For some reason it doesn't play on Chrome...
It was also while I was in Hong Kong. I thought of an embargo, but it doesn't seem probable.
- firefox does syncing better than google chrome because it not only saves the bookmarks and addons, it also saves the tabs. Meaning if your working on something and you need to switch computers it will have the same sites and tabs and everything.
- Chromium you have to go through the store too..
- firefox is better. Its faster and is just better. There is nothing that makes google chrome better. firefox does everything google chrome does and more. No reason to use google chrome.
- Will you please add the link to your blog post into the description? Thanks! (About Chrome's Collection of history)
- im using firefox right now lol
- From my standpoint, Firefox had it moments with me in Linux Mint 17. So, I downloaded, then used Chrome, it wasn't bad either. I still have it but then I updated my Kernel, and since the Kernel update in Linux MInt 17 Cinnamon, Firefox hasn't given me any problems since.
- I run firefox as my primary web browser and midori as my secondary on linux.
