Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla's Dave Mason, when asked by derStandard.at what the most scary part of Firefox' roadmap is: "It has to be Firefox OS which is a huge step for Mozilla. It is exciting and scary at the same time. This is the first time we had to partner with some other companies to get to the end results so that's a hard transition for us." I commend Mozilla for attempting this. I've been trying out Firefox on my Nexus 7 today, and it's really, really good (save for the interface, which needs some serious Holo love). If this is an indication for what Firefox OS is going to be like - good on 'm.

Strange I don't think there's much wrong with Firefox. Stable, pretty fast, has the best addons, and served from an impartial vendor - what more could you ask for?
Improved security from one process per website? Chrome is the benchmark for security..

And for "pretty fast" I disagree: Chrome is much more responsive..

But I agree very much with the rest, especially with the "best addons": there's nothing equivalent to "tree style tabs" on Chrome..

Chrome automatically includes flash, your argument is invalid

Actually low rights mode on Vista and 7 means YOUR argument is invalid sir. LRM has been out for 6 years now and FF has YET to support anything but running in the higher permissions of the user. Anybody worth their salt will tell you a program should ALWAYS run with the absolute least permissions it can and still function and that isn't FF and hasn't been FF for 6 years now.

So trying to say that because Chrome includes Flash (which every FF user will install into FF anyway, thus negating you entire argument) means its less safe than FF when one runs at a much lower permission level? Epic fail.

Although I think one process per website is a great idea, I've found Chrome tends to eat a lot memory in doing so. Personally Firefox is good enough. I used Chrome for a couple of years before moving back to Firefox, I don't anything that will make me want to switch again.

As a side note my main problem I'm having is Flash instability. Honestly if it wasn't for YouTube I would have uninstalled it long ago.
