I don't know if anyone else is starting to dislike more and more firefox like I do.
I've been using it for 10 years or so now and I really liked it. I loved the idea of it being free software, I loved the idea not having to use IE (when only ff and ie were around and I used windows), I really like addons, the privacy it gave, and back then, the lack of virus (at least not as many as IE...). But now it's just another big one that does the same crap as the others. It constantly calls home. And worse, it constantly calls google and tells them what you visit and when (you know, the "alert me if the webpage has virus" setting). So all the good stuff that made firefox different isn't there anymore.
I also didn't like lot's of the decisions that Mozilla took, and, if it weren't because it has tons of addons I love I'd have ditched it already. But there is another major problem: I can't find any other web browser that offers the same stability and is open source...
I've tried stuff like konqueror and midori, even lynx... but.. you know... it's like not for everyday use.
I really liked the idea of midori, but it's kinda unstable right now. But the real problem is that apart from midori I feel that there aren't any other browsers out there but the big 3. How is that even possible? Why aren't more browsers being developed? I'm sure I'm not the only one not happy with the 3 so there should be a huge market out there.
What does /v/FreeSoftware use? And why aren't we developing a decent browser? Or helping other small projects like midori. How is it so difficult to use the internet without being monitored all the time?? I'm not planning to use the tor browser for my daily internet, but I'm also not going to use those PRISM applications either! Open source and free software is failing me here!
