    They need to release a mobile browser and worry about their market share dropping to single digits soon, there may be no such thing as firefox and that concerns me because i hate chrome

    OR are you talking tablets and smart watches?
    'Cause I'm not really that much into mobile, but may buy a smart watch in the future, don't like to haul cases around all day long.

    I don't understand why chrome is so popular, so many people push it like the people on CNET or Engadet, leo laporte. Chrome extensions are far inferior to firefox, it contrary to popular myth does not handle memory better and is not any faster
    Because anywhere you have something to do with Google, there's Chrome lurking somewhere.

    Hi there

    You'll also need to wear a DINNER PLATE on your wrist as well to use google in the future !!!! - Why are Mens watches so hideously LARGE and Ugly these days and look like the worst taste in ostentatious Bling that I've seen in my entire life - and I've been in some places where incredible amounts of "tasteless" Bling was the norm. !!!

    Cheers

    Must make sure that everybody can see you have one. I still have an Omikron I got when started school, small, thin and square. 60 years on and still ticking and keeping time.

    Well, like Hollywood Jim, they've run out of ideas.
    I'm still wearing the Timex LCD I bought in 1978, with the only upgrade being a stainless steel expansion band after the leather wore out, but I am intrigued by the smart watches, though will wait to see how they evolve before buying.
    Some are as big as those white communicators from ST:TMP, others not much larger than my Timex at about 1.5inch x 1inch.

    I've run both Waterfox and Pale Moon x64 on and off. Since trying Cyberfox I've been pretty happy with it. All the FF AddOns I used work with it. My only complaint is often I see a lag after clicking an item in a list,until it shows the selection highlighted. But I'm running several AddOns I wouldn't need on my old Desktop PCs with CRT monitor because Toshiba Laptop contrast is only adjustable from the Catalyst Control Center. I have font switchers and other stuff that may slow down reaction on long lists. But that's just a guess.

    AFA speed the 32 bit FF portable seems quite fast. But if I can run a stable 64 bit browser I may as well. :)

    Talking about tablets and smart phones,especially iphone and ipads they have zero presence almost in those markets. so what happens is people use chrome on those things an.d then start using chrome on laptops and desktops and firefox becomes forgotten, that needs to change and change now

    I'm just waiting for smart people to stop using the word "smart" to describe every dumb-as-a-rock gadget that comes along... The "smart" in "smart watch," for instance, needs to come from the operator of the watch or else there just isn't any "smart" to be had there...same with "smart phone," etc. ad infinitum..."smart browser,"...now there's something truly funny...
