Help me I can't stick with Firefox. I keep trying it but it keeps being too slow.

I don't want to contribute to a Chrome hegemony, but at the same time I'll be damned if oppressive monopolies don't produce fast browsers

@kevin I used to be so in love with Firefox. Now it’s almost unusable garbage with some fun plugins that don’t work anymore. Chrome is where it’s at, sadly.

@Y2Kready Yeah - nightly is definitely markedly faster, but still behind Chrome by a significant amount.

@kevin Using Linux ? I'm on a Mac (obviously it's a monster of a computer because Mac) but I use FF nightly and it's just as fast as chrome from my experience.

@cjd I am indeed on Linux - I've seen some Phoronix tests that unfortunately show Firefox as far behind Chrome.

@kevin
I recall ff Linux performance used to be surprisingly weak
