So been using chrome forever but more and more things start to annoy me. It eats so much ram and touch support is terrible, cant even propperly scroll.
so, hows firefox?

I use Firefox for browsing and Chrome for development stuff (I just cant get away from Chrome's dev tools). Plus I like using Chrome profiles to separate work stuff.
Firefox is awesome and much less of a resource hog than Chrome, but it does have issues. Media heavy tabs tend to become unresponsive if left open in the background for a long time, never noticed this with chrome. It also reacts weird when dragging it around monitors and takes a few seconds to fix itself afterwards. Most annoyingly for me is its inability to "just work" with global proxy mode, need an addon for it or set manually.
There is also Brave browser btw. It's a bit rough around the edges last time I tried, which was like half a year ago, but it's basically Chromium (without all the Google crap).
