I can't tell what it is, but there's a fluid feeling I get from Chrome that I'm just not feeling here. Like new tabs in Firefox land with a _thud_ whereas Chrome's just slide in.
I'd say subjectively it feels like it takes them about the same time to open, but there's something lacking in the feel as a whole.
It's not as extreme, but it's like the feel of using a Java desktop application vs. a native one.
Fast is not enough, or why you may want to open source that shiny new piece your enterprise-focused company just wrote:
On the minus, it looks like Firefox has yet to implement Chrome's option of disabling extensions on private mode by default. I don't see any way to configure it either.
Strange omission for a browser that 's usually considered the more private option.

"Mozilla has always been a proponent of #decentralization, recognizing that it is a key ingredient of a healthy Internet. Starting with Firefox 59, several protocols that support decentralized architectures are available for use by extensions. The newly approved protocols are:
Dat Project (dat://)
IPFS (dweb:// ipfs:// ipns://)
Secure Scuttlebutt (ssb://)"
Why you should come to Monkigras:
Excellent talks, great sense of community (where not even the sponsors are allowed to just pitch), and completely unexpected situations. It's the only conference where one could just have an impromptu panel with Kent Beck interviewing two craft beer brewery owners.
Brain hacking, filter bubbles, social media manipulation and why people should own their data:
It's a piece by a #Facebook investor, so the ideas are geared towards regulation. Things that are more likely to preserve its long-term value. Nowhere in sight is a suggestion that, hey, you may want to stop using it for as long as they act this way.
Say what you will about markets, companies still listen when their cashflow is affected.
