Mozilla & Gecko clones Over the weekend, the crew at Tom's Hardware was busy testing the recently-released Firefox 22 using the usual bevy of benchmarks. This roundup included Chrome 27, Firefox 22, IE10, and Opera 12, along with the new Chromium-based build of Opera Next (alos known as Opera 15).

Firefox, getting better and better

I've been a Firefox user since it's very first version arrived back in 2004 when it was called Firebird. Before that, I was a staunch Netscape user; I have always detested Internet Explorer (and Microsoft products in general.) When I made the permanent switch to Linux, my trusty Firefox came right along with me. I've tried Chrome here and there and even Opera once; even though these are great browsers, I've grown accustomed to Firefox and I prefer it. The huge array of plugins and addons extend its features even further. I've never had any issues other than the occasional font problem, but that's usually quickly sorted.

I agree with you that all the addons and plugins for Firefox is a huge plus. Firefox is my main browser, with IE as a back for those times when something is wrong with Firefox. Between those two, I've never had a need to use any other browser. They work perfectly fine for me. I did, though, use Netscape, way back ages ago.

Phoenix, not Firebird - that was its 2nd name, before Firefox ;)
