Firefox or Chrome? (29)

Which one do you use or like better? And why? O:

I use Firefox because it's a lot more widespread... plus I love all the addons and plugins for it, Chrome is getting there, and it's a little faster, but nothing beats good ol' Firefox IMO

The last two, yes, which are opt-out.

The others are opt-in. Firefox also lets me download malware, but that doesn't make Firefox malware.

Update checking is opt-out in Firefox, not opt-in.
Exactly what tracking is present in Chrome but not in Firefox?

Firefox's on-by-default update checking is equivalent to all of those except the omnibox and page not found suggestions. Those two can be easily disabled before they send any data.

I wish Mozilla would cut all ties with Google now that Google have their own browser. Even if Google still contribute financially, they should not be allowed special favours in return.

I want something like the browser choice feature in later versions of Windows. When I first run Firefox, it should ask me questions like, "Who do you want to be your search provider?" and, "Do you want to use Google's Safe Browsing service?"

Chrome has some great extensions.

I use AAReadable in the AA Bar: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/aareadable/omooelimgkbkdfnnciofhjoopichcbok

Did you know that some malicious websites actually DON'T serve viruses to Chrome users? That's because Google detects and blocks those sites ruthlessly. And it does this quicker than the most antivirus companies.

Tracking hippies are a funny lot.
