If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.

Looks great, hard to miss!

While we're aware that it's a meme, please don't post "shut up, Wesley" to @wilw . It constitutes harassment and we'll handle it accordingly.
