Time to move on: Moving from mainly using Firefox to mainly using Chrome.
Reasons and Rationalisations:
I use a lot of Google services and I own a lot of Google devices.
Security is top notch and updates are pushed out fast, but in a way that does not bug users.
Chrome is now mature enough that I can find equivalent extensions to those in Firefox.
e.g. I have found an extension “Sidewise Tree Style Tab” that allows me to have usable vertical tab stacking.
Chrome is developing a technical lead and will be developed at quite a fast pace for the foreseeable future.
Chrome updating does not break extensions.
Although I don’t trust Google as much as I do Mozilla (banking will still be a Firefox activity), I still trust them a lot.
Mozilla’s treatment of the RSS LiveBookMarks feature was for me a turning point, instead of updating the feature, it was largely emasculated.
And in point of fact the Chrome extension, RSS Live Links, looks to be a better long term proposition than my favourite Firefox extension Boox, :-( go figure.
A New World:
So here we go a whole new world to get used to :-o
This should be fun :-)
The next few articles will note any useful tips on using and configuring Chrome.
I will back link them all here to make it easer for anyone making the same journey.
