I’ve recently found myself less than impressed by Google. Having been an avid user of Reader, I was left out in the cold when they announced their intention to shut the service down. As a result I use Feedly now.
A few days ago I found that Chrome had begun to crash frequently on Linux, at least on my workstation, and so I had the idea to try switching to Firefox as my main browser.
I had been an Opera user for years and Firefox was never my main browser, so I am not sure why I didn’t try going back to Opera. In any case I didn’t, and now I have set up my workstation, my laptop, my phone and my tablet to all use Firefox as their primary browser.
It works on Linux again, Firefox 21 on Android is working just fine, and on Windows I see much less memory consumption. Everything is tied together by Firefox’ synchronization service. Bookmarks were imported from Chrome on my laptop and then synced to all other devices. Neat 🙂
