Numerous authoritative sources and personal experience of the author’s claim that Chrome is far from being the best browser, when we compare Chrome Vs Firefox. Want to know why?
By the nature of his work as a columnist, I have to constantly use that one browser or the other, test their speed, reliability, system resources. But anyway, my regular browser for many years now is Firefox. And there are well-founded reasons.Over the past year everything finally became clear that the further struggle for the right to be called “the best desktop browser” will take place only between the two contestants. Internet Explorer still continues to roll down, Opera has chosen a strategy of self-destruction, so that only Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
One of the indisputable advantages of Firefox. We can customize its interface in the most wide range, including the location of the buttons, panels and address bar. And if you add to this special extensions and user scripts, you are able to literally sculpt yourself a browser that will be convenient for you.
Chrome interface is virtually impossible to change, unless you take into account the ability to hide \ show bookmarks bar. You must use exactly the location of the elements that come up to you at Google, or … Or switch to Firefox!
And again about the appearance of the program.
Topics of the Firefox browser are more fully change its design, affecting virtually all interface elements, including the form of buttons, toolbars, tool windows, and so on.You can pick a theme for your operating system, a wallpaper or just in the mood.

Today ognelis has the most moderate demands, unlike Chrome, which is in need of RAM may slow down even a fairly powerful system.
Google gets money for advertising demonstration. The more he knows about you and your interests, the performance will advertising, the greater the company’s revenues. Then you need to continue to think?
Yes, Google collects information about us, including with the help of your browser.In contrast, Firefox is an open product nonprofit Mozilla Foundation, which focuses on security and privacy in its products. Code browser is open and distributed under a triple license GPL / LGPL / MPL, allowing anyone interested to test it for the presence of malicious undocumented functions.
Speed has always been a trump card Chrome, his trademark. But time does not stand still, and today, it seems, c this statement is debatable. Yes, the matter is thin, the bill goes to the millisecond, and the result is too dependent on the method of testing. However, in the comparative testing popular resource Tomshardware.com, which can hardly be suspected of being exercised by engagement, that Firefox received the honorary first place.
Thus, it is Mozilla products is the clear leader for today in many ways, and my personal choice. Although, for the sake of objectivity, it should be acknowledged that there are areas where significant loses Firefox Google Chrome. But it will be another story …
