Windows 7: Firefox Makes it Easy to Share Your Favorite Content

As long as it remains open source and it's so easy to add/remove stuff with addons it remains my browser.

No really, how much browsers can be re-skinned to look cool like chrome?

It's not a so evil addition anyway. Just a slightly modified "read this later" addon. And it will be useful for lots of users.

I mean it's not a system service doing weird stuff like waking up the PC at night and bogging down your connection downloading updates and breaking your addons without telling you ala Google Chrome.

More and more i realize that my switch to other Browsers was a good move.

Sad fact is Firefox is losing marketshare in big style lately. And Mozilla's new policy of Removing Customizations, removing Options instead of fine tuning and enhancing that ones, they add instead crap like Social API and the ability to "phone with the browser" and the new "Tracking Ligth Plans".

I seriously can and will not trust such a group anylonger.

All companies and browsers are on the social media train.

At this rate FF will soon be as horrible as Chrome or IE.

They've apparently removed:
  • Image Blocking
  • JavaScript Disabling

I'm seriously considering recovering FF21 from my backup HDD images.

They WILL be as horrible as chrome... Watch out for Australis.. Your own personal Google Chrome look and work-alike new Default Theme in Firefox....

And its slower as Chrome and you even do not get for all the customization trade-off Webkit Speed and HTML5 compatibility/other Webtechnology Compatibility

I rather use with pride Midori and have even less html5 support, but at least i have a Browser which does not work and look like Chrome

I like Firefox in general though, and I will continue to use it so long as it meets my needs and doesn't force me into anything I don't want.
Agreed.

I wish they'd fix the Bookmark Manager instead of wasting time on this stuff.

They should also offer a better installer, if they are going to keep on adding "fluff" features.
It should have an "Advanced Option", so that you can choose the features that you actually want installed.
It should also remember your choices, so that you don't have to edit your feature settings after future updates.
I agree with you two! I don't have anything to add.

BTW, I've also heard that Firefox is going to kill the Bookmarks sidebar as well as the addons bar. That's a deal killer for me.
I agree. Palemoon is the best browser I've ever used. if you feel the need for speed, try it.

Palemoon is not bad, tried it out a while earlier

But on Mozilla's way to unimportance - seen from their marketshare impcacting decisions lately - the point is how long Firefox will be seen as valuable browser by Website Developers.

If i am allowed to remind you on Opera.. they had met that specific point already a while earlier

The browser works around the developers, not the developers working around the browser. Of course, some developers may add some changes to remain compatible with older browsers, but all browsers usually have a standard to attire to. It's the same with scripting languages used to develop websites, such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and maybe some web based programming languages like ASP.NET.
