And when I say everybody I mean everyfuknbody. Not just FOSS and GNU/Linux users. Cause this writeup is about the new Firefox version, which is rolled out worldwide and system agnostic just about now. I received my update, like, an hour ago and did the switch just nownow.
I guess most of you guys are on Firefox as well, if you’re not a maniepooface Chrome traitor or a totally out-of-whack Microsoft Edge user. Shame on any of those children of uncaring parents; we’re talking about the only reasonable Web browser, the fukn Firefox.
We heard things – mostly bad – about 89.0. It’s not gonna get better, as the Mozilla Foundation’s, FF’s roof organisation, made many questionable decisions in the last couple years already. And this new version is the harbinger of the end-times and the ruin of the internet as such! At least according to the experts and ideologists of Free and Open Source Software.
But what can we do? I guess resistance is futile; when the browser is rolled out globally the recent version will end up on the scrap heap of unusable shit sooner rather than later. So I accepted the upgrade …
… and hoped for the best. And made a little mistake right away. 😐 After restart of the browser you’ll be asked if you wanna keep the standard, a dark or a light theme … or decide later. Orca, always quick, thought a dark theme would be cool, and much better for her sexy but old eyes as well, sooooo …
… yikes! This is fuglyyyy!!! But my wrong decision, not Firefox’s fault. And now I can’t find a function to roll it back and decide on a lighter theme. 😦
Apart from that everything appears like it always did. My very few customizations rolled over in the new Firefox without any complications. Let’s watch a video by Tom and find out what else did change to the worse:
Hmmm. I guess time will tell if FF is still fit to be our politically correct and pretty save and privacy-concerned browser … or if we better go look for a new one. Our tries to get used to FF alternatives (PaleMoon, Waterfox) didn’t turn out very satisfactory, and we both stayed on our standard Firefox up to now.
Tell me, guys, what’s your browser of choice, why you on it, what’s its best characteristics? Your answers and opinions, as always, directly in the comment section below. Thankies.
