Firefox now shows ads as sponsored address bar suggestions #firefox #mozilla #opensource https://obsolete29.com/posts/2021/10/07/firefox-now-shows-ads-as-sponsored-address-bar-suggestions/
@obsolete29 Oh come on, can this week get any worse? I thought having to deal with Outlook thrice in three days was bad enough!
@obsolete29 At this point I do not even care anymore. Ungoogled chromium is replacing ff in my routines. I hate being that guy but my relationship to ff is hanging on the single string of belief in diversity. It is the only reason I keep it around. Yes Google is alread too powerful, yes we should all be using ff. But it is not happening. FF reminds me of windows phone. It is in this state where it is still just useful enough to work for a minority of users yet brings nothing new to the table.
@studioYI does ff not actually work for you? Curious about that because that's not been my experience
@obsolete29 It does. Yet chromium feels slicker and more minimalist. I like the profile switching and use it a lot in order to separate websites not just technically but also mentally. I can assign each profile a certain color theme. I like that I can turn websites into web apps and embed them into my os. Again helps me keep things in order mentally. Firefox just doesn't do these things the way i like them. Also I prefer Chromium's dev tools.
