For me, it's not about which one is best. There is absolutely no reason why we need a million browsers. If the early 2000's taught us anything its that standards matter. We do not need multiple browsers inventing things. We need a single browser. It's not about competition. No standards no productivity.

Lol you have been supporting IE for way too long. I can feel the frustration. All modern browsers are fine, and you simply use what you prefer. I personally use FF most of the time, but I like to switch to Chrome once in a while too. Back in the early 2000s it was a wild west, the internet was still so new and no one knew what was gonna happen. We have now learned from this.

There is definitely a reason to have more browsers. Competition drives innovation. As long as browser creators agree on certain standards, which they do for the most parts, we will all be fine :) This fight about FF vs Chrome is just as redundant as fighting over which one is better Mac or PC.. it useless, it all boils down to preferences. Don’t fight it, embrace the change, have fun and enjoy the ride. Peace!

You took everything I said and made counter arguments which were exactly what I said was not the case. Then you made many wrong assumptions on what I am talking about as if you are conspiring what my root cause is. Finally, you try using external subjects for equivocation and dismiss everything I said with 'preferences' - a fallacy.

What was your point?

Calm down. I think you’re over analyzing everything I said.

To answer your question, my point was simply that I don’t agree with what you said in a previous comment, specifically that we should only have one browser. I offered my opinion on the matter, my goal was definitely not to attack you or hurt your feelings in anyway.

Have a great day!
